Haha oh no you're helping me out a lot! I can empathize with the exhaustion completely... I'm actually at work right now, been here since three, and it's 10:00 PM now. Luckily I work a job where I can learn how to fix my hair when there's nothing better to do. c;

I'll look into that sulfate free shampoo, since I'd like to have one lying around, and I did use clarifying yesterday to strip my hair one final time... I grabbed some Suave Naturals conditioner last night because I heard that it was good for those choosing the cowash route, and I'll find product reviews as you've suggested. (I wasn't aware there were any on this website, so thank you!)
