New "Ology" Walgreens Brand

Found this yesterday in Walgreens. Couldn't find out much about it online. I used it as a rinse out cuz the smell is so fresh and different. It's veerrrrrry thick, so my fine hair is not sure what to think about it yet. If any one has used this or can talk about its wheat protein content ( wheat ingredients scare me, eek!) please, share :)

    I saw this in the Sunday ad and was so excited to try it. Like you, I didn't find much online about this new product. Of course, I went out and got it that day. I used it for the first time yesterday.

    I found the shampoo to be just ok. I don't usually do well with low poos but I seem to keep giving them a chance anyway. I seem to do better using a regular no silicone shampoo (V05) once a week than a low poo a few times a week. The conditioner was pretty good. I could tell that this would be very moisturizing for many but it just didn't give me that slip that I look for. It was very thick. I used it as a rinse out and also as a leave in. I found that my hair was very dry by the end of the day - I think that this was from the protein. I would typically give a new product a couple of uses before I give up on them but I'm scared to try this again because of how dry my hair ended up. This morning I felt the need to wash with my no silicone sulfate shampoo to clarify then I used the Curly Kinks Deep Conditioner and the Curly Kinks leave in, followed by Jessicurl oil blend and HESMU gel - much better!

    I really wanted to like these but sadly they are either going back or I will use the shampoo on my dogs and the conditioner to shave with.
    CO Wash: VO5 Clarifying Conditioners
    Conditioner: Curly Kinks Deep Conditioner and Leave-In
    Styling: Still searching but currently using HESMU

    i just picked up the moisturizing low poo today. i am
    excited to try it! no oils,no protein,silicones,sulfates,parabens,etc. i didn't buy the conditioner since it has coconut oil in it,and that breaks me out.
    will give my opinion after trying it too.

    loved the price though. it was 5.99 on sale since i have a walgreens card,for 3.99.

    I think its because most sulfate shampoos have a low -cone in them. Makes the shampoo rinse out easier, and feels less dry.

    iroc,

    yes that is probably true or at least a big part of it.

    I just picked up the moisturizing conditioner as I have a full bottle of SheaM lowpoo and walgreens was totally out of the shampoo. Excited to try, due to it being glycerin free and my hair liked shea butter and protein in products before. Has anyone noticed the volumizing and moisturizing conditioners have the exact same ingredient list? It is quite thick, almost like olay face lotion, the smell is wonderful. Plan to use it after co-washing as a rinse out and leave in under gel like usual tomorrow.
