I recently did an experiment on my hair.  I shampooed my hair one week, and then the next week I conditioner washed my hair. 

Week 1 (shampoo) - I shampooed my hair every other day with a mild moisturizing shampoo (CON Shampoo blue label).  My hair felt like it was full of build-up (ex: itchy scalp). My hair was soft but soon because dry.  My curls weren't as defined as before.

Week 2 (conditioner only wash)-I CW every other day with a no cone conditioner (Suave Tropical Coconut).  My hair was softer, more curl definition, and there was no build up. 

I must tell you that I have noticed better results in Week 2. I love it and will never go back to shampooing my hair again.

I just wanted to know if any of you "No Poo".  If you do or you don't please explain why and the products that you use.

Thank you for allowing me to share.

Well- i shampoo two times a week and nopoo on the other 5 days. I am a new "big fan" of saloncare shampoos and conditioners- i purchase them at sally's beauty supply. I have wild cherry, honey and almond, sparkling apples and pears( these are the shampoos), conditioners that i have are honey and almond, wild cherry, remoisturizing balancer and balsam. These products are great. I also rotate a varitey of shampoos: Aussie Moist, Cream of nature(green bottle), Queen Helene garlic shampoo, Rivas silicon mix shampoo and HEB-plus(natural shampoo that i purchased at - ) . Other conditioners/deep conditioners that i use are: Lamaur's bone Marrow(deep conditioner), Cholesterol, Rivas silicon Mix hair treatment, Conditioner concetrate(purchased from - and - -i add liquid aloe vera to these.) I also use Capillo Milk and Honey cream rinse for conditioner washes as well as the conditioner concentrate and the saloncare conditioners.

Hope this helps.

I No-Poo sometimes. I like to alternate. If I shampoo all the time my hair feels dry but if I CW all the time my scalp gets itchy.

i do the same as layla. sometimes, i CWC too. depends on the state of my hair. and if i CO wash only, ill have to clarify with a clarifying shampoo so i dont think i can get away with CO washing exclusively

I shampoo maybe once a month with con and no poo the rest of the time with DDTA.  I make sure to do acv rinses often though.  I'm lovin my hair since doing the no poo.

I alternate as well. I shampoo at least 1x per week and CO either 1 or 2x/wk.
