Starting over

I am starting over and I am going to *try* to give cg another shot. I have gotten so much advice and help here that hopefully I am going in this time more informed. I am going to try to either no poo or low poo, but not sure I can as my hair is thin and seems to weigh down easily, but I am going to try. My question is since I have been using stylers with cones in them, do I need to do one more wash with sulfate shampoo before I try the no/low poo or do I just start doing the no/low poo? The product I have been using is the BTZ curling creme and BTZ protein cocktail, which both have the amodimethicone?

    You need to do one last wash - you can do a low poo, just make sure it has coco betaine in it. If no poo/cowash is too heavy for your hair, a low poo should work just fine. Many of us on the board have that problem and much prefer low poo shampoos.

    Side note: If you feel your hair is similar to someone else's on the board, look in their signature to see what products they use. That's a good starting point :)

    Trying to make sure I am understanding right, low poo is just a sulfate free shampoo?

    Yes, basically. But not all low poo surfactants can get silicones out.

    What's the Scoop on Silicones?

    And PLEASE, do not start out with a Suave CO, a lot of people fail because of them...
