This post has frightened me. I feel like my hair is thinning and I think my scalp is over conditioned... What kind of low poo do you use? I've been thinking of getting some but not anything too expensive... Suggestions?

From the products you are using I suspect you are US-based? I am now in Asia, so I'm using Renew Skincare Australia Everyday Purifying Shampoo. These are the ingredients:

Aqua, Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, Decyl Glucoside, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, Polysorbate 20, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil (Rosehip), Hydrolized Wheat Protein, Lawsonia inermis (henna) extract, Arctium Lappa Extract (Burdock), Naturtinum oficinale (watercress) extract, Equisetum Arvense Extract (Horsetail), Urtica Dioica Extract (Nettle), Syzygium paniculata (lilly pilly) extract, Yucca Schidigera (yucca) extract, Santalum Spicatum (Australian Sandalwood) oil, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Essential Oil, Vanilla Planifolia Extract, Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia) Oil, Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Lecithin (soy), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate (vegetable), Citric Acid (pH balance) Citrus grandis (grapefruit seed) extract, Phenoxyethanol.

I've had no problems w/ this low-poo, other then that I find it a bit drying, which is why I switched to cowashing in the first place.

If you're US based, a very popular low-poo is SheaMoisture Moisture Retention Shampoo. I've never tried it, but when I go back (in about a month) I'll be sure to buy a bottle. It has good reviews.

You can also go to the "products" section of and search for low-poos and read reviews. I believe there are many low-poos now on the market.
