Do you poo?
I'm interested in getting my arms around what everyone does. :)

So what's your cleansing method of choice? I'd love it if you'd list brands 'n stuff, too. I wonder if there's a method or brand that the majority loves... like if I asked about conditioners, I'm sure I'd see elucence coming up a ton, so I'm wondering if there's something similar for washing... guess we'll find out!

I use Jessi Curl HCC & Deva Curl No Poo (cleansing conditioner). I checked off the first choice, but there's not a way to vote for more than one.

I 'poo about once a week with Jessicurl HCC & the rest of the time I co-wash with Original Source or Back to Basics.
This is working really well for me! :D

Shampoo every other day for me. Might soon change to sulfate free shampoo and see if that helps my dandruff.

KurlyGurl708 07-29-2005 07:51 AM

I shampoo about 2 or 3 times a week with CoN. Then, about once ever 2 weeks I've been using Fantasia IC 100% Pure Tea Shampoo. It's really effective at getting all of the build-up out of my hair....(I use cones).
I'm going to try an ACV Rinse this weekend. We'll see how it goes. :)

Yes, most mornings.

Oh, wait, you mean shampoo (j/k.) Yes, once a week or every two weeks with a gentle formula. Once in a while I'll conditioner wash once or twice in between with Suave Coconut in the summer or dampen my hair in the shower.

My top two brands are Kiehl's shampoos. I either use the Castile dry hair formula or the Amino Acid gentle formula. I LOVE them. I also like the Elucence Moisture Balancing formula a lot (not the clarifying, it was was too drying.) I also have the L'anza dry hair formula and the Aubrey Organics Island Fantasy formula, which are fine. I have a huge industrial size bottle of Creme of Nature that I used to love but can no longer use because it was causing my scalp to itch. Once in a while I'll use the Aveda Black Malva or Sap Moss shampoos - not often as they are not as gentle.

I have way less shampoos than anything else as I have tossed most of the rest that I used to have or given them away or my husband is using them.

I voted for the sulfate-free lathering shampoo because that is what the Kiehl's brands are, though the lather is very light, but I do use low sulfates as well (the L'anza and Aveda shampoos, for example) and the Aubrey Organics is sulfate-free and non-lathering.

I was converted to the CoN detangling poo the first time I tried it. That's sulfate-free and lathering, right? Cuz that's what I voted.

cond. wash only for me (cheapo suave) once a week (for now). i may have to up it to twice a week a little farther into this...who knows. i thought of getting the devacurl no poo but since our household money is going mostly to school clothes... :( the suave will do for now.

curlsallover 07-29-2005 08:19 AM

I use Jessicurl HCC once a week and CO wash with EMB. I also condition with Too Shea, which I love.

eccentric_kurlz 07-29-2005 08:22 AM

I use Mastey Traite(2 times a week, and 3 if I'm experimenting) and occasionally use Creme of Nature(red bottle).

PixieCurl 07-29-2005 08:23 AM

i wash with devacurl no poo about once a week, sometimes conditioner wash with suave milk & honey mid-week, and jessicurl HCC maybe once every two weeks

mayim 07-29-2005 09:29 AM

I use Aveda Shampure once or twice a week, depending on what my hair seems to want. I rinse and/or conditioner wash once or twice a week too. I might add a weekly ACV rinse into my routine again because, inspired by recent threads, I did one again recently, and am really happy with the results.

I don't really use shampoo too much on my scalp, I take care of it with condish wash and just plain old warm water and a thorough massage. I have no scalp problems whatsoever since I started avoiding using shampoo on it.

I just use 'poo to get the styling build-up off the length of my hair. Shampure has sulfates, but for me it acts really gentle. I just leave some extra condish in on the day(s) I wash, for a little more moisture, and I'm good to go. It doesn't kill my curls the way other sulfate 'poos have.

Me too. :)

Muñequita 07-29-2005 10:57 AM

I use sulfate-free and low sulfate poos. Elucence MB shampoo once every week and CON in between. I haven't tried anything else from curlmart, but will get around to it someday :o. I'm happy with my poos though. :D

lushaholic 07-29-2005 11:52 AM

I co-wash with Suave Nat.Tropical Coconut co most of the time now in the summer (every other day to everyday depending on swimming), once a week I wash with Devacurl No-Poo, and just once every 2 weeks with either Devacurl Low-Poo or Jessicurl HCC. :)

Oh my god! The same thing happened to me! I thought it was just me! Couldn't figure out why it did that to me! I loved it for a month or so, and then it just started to make me itch like CRAZY!!

lushaholic 07-29-2005 12:24 PM

I couldn't even stand it the one time I used it. I hated the smell because to me it smelled like dial soap or something and it felt way too harsh in my hair. Didn't help my tangles at all either. I regretted it the minute I started to massage it in. :?

Curlilocs 07-29-2005 12:36 PM

I use Aubrey Organics Island Naturals. I love the way my hair feels after I've shampooed with this stuff. I just can't get away from "pooing" altogether. You'd never know that when I was relaxed I'd go sometimes a month without washing my hair, now I at least rinse or CO daily!

Dancingbadger 07-29-2005 01:14 PM

I use Avalon Organics nourishing shampoo. It's non-sulfate and has lavender in it! :D It is my first sulfate free poo. I haven't tried any others. I wash about every other day. I also scrub my scalp with Giovanni tea tree oil condish. It helps when my scalp gets really itchy.

I tried going no poo for about a week and my hair was awful. I'm a wavy and I must poo!! :lol: :lol:

Also the lovely ladies on the 2b board pointed me to Jessicurl Aloeba. Love it love it love it!!

pacammi 07-29-2005 01:33 PM

Cream of nature (red bottle also) and 1/2 castille soap, 1/2 water, with rosemary and carrot oil for moxie!
