sulfate shampoo inbetween low pooing

curly01curly01 Posts: 96Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
I use Deva products.  I use the low poo but I'm finding that especially when the weather is real dry out, the low poo OR products build up and my hair starts to feel heavy and oily.  What is a good either sulfate shampoo or cleansing poo to get everything out?  I have some Ouidad water works and used that today and hair feels better.  Anyone else have the same issues with low poos?

    I have to clarify with a sulfate shampoo about every couple of weeks, due to dandruff. So a lot of us do need to, for a variety of reasons. I use a cheap dandruff shampoo to clarify with.

    I have the same problem.  I use an Aveda shampoo once a week or so.  The low poos just don't seem to clean my hair very well.

    Which Aveda shampoo do you use?

    I think that Deva Curl low poo is famous for not removing build up. I personally will use Neutrogena Anti Residue once a month.

    It's the Rosemary and Mint shampoo.  It has 1 sulfate, and it's halfway down the list, so not as harsh as a lot of others.  I'm not necessarily recommending it, I just happen to have some in my cupboard.  I think I've been working on that same bottle for nearly 2 years now!  It lasts a long time when you only use it occasionally!

    If your hair is feeling dull and weighed down, then by all means grab a sulfate shampoo and wash out all that gunk. You can follow this up with a moisturising silicone free hair masque. But get it done and your curls will be able to breathe again!

    I use the Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo. It's a simple sulfate shampoo--not a lot of ingredients.I clarify usually every other week because I get build-up easily and my low poo doesn't do such a great job on build-up.
