Low poo with create some lather whereas no poo there is none. It kinda feels like you're washing your hair with a light conditioner and we've always though if there are bubbles then it's clean. Not always true. Both clean well its up to you what you prefer...me the no poo.

No Poo would be better. Low Poo was created only because some curly girls just couldn't get past the no lather aspect of cleansing the scalp. So they created a low lather alternative. I have never used Lo Poo, only No Poo. No Poo would help to keep moisture in your hair and reduce frizz as long as you don't do other things to rip the moisture out.

I say no poo, being that it does not consist of the ingredients/chemicals that may be stripping for your hair. You want to restore and maintain your moisture levels (which also helps to control frizz). So try the no-poo out first to see if you like it or not.

"No-poo" has no lather at all while "low-poo" has some/little lather. Personally, I think no-poo is better and creates less frizz. Some people have hair that is more on the oily side, so they prefer to use the low-poo.

really the only difference between no poo and low poo is in the amount of lather it creates. no poo has zero lather and from what i have read, low poo has only a little bit of lather. (the bubbles that are created when you wash your hair)n they both work the same and are amazing for frizz and making your hair clean and light

It truly depends on your hair. No-poo takes some getting used to- two weeks to sometimes up to six weeks. (Your scalp has to get used to not produces the same amount of oil it has to produce to make up for harsh detergents used in regular shampoo.)

I would suggest starting with the lo-poo for a couple of weeks and then switching to the no-poo.

I think that the outcome would likely depend on the state of your hair. I have 4A/4B hair that is currently very healthy and when I use the no poo and the conditioner, I am able to air dry with no frizz. Before it was in a healthy state, when I washed, conditioned, and air dried, my hair would be partially frizz free, but it would be very frizzy in the areas where it was not so healthy. Hopefully this helps!

YES! Get Lorraine Massey's book "Curly Girl" or go on naturallycurly.com 's website for help with doing this. If you have fried your hair by straightening it, it will take time to "heal it" and moisturize it. Moisture is the key to pretty curly hair. I have gotten more compliments on my hair since I learned how to treat curly hair, then I ever did in my youth and forcing it into submission with straight hair products.

If you do not typically use non-lathering shampoo this product will take some getting used to.

You only need a small amount and adding a little water can help it smooth through hair easier.

Depending on your hair type, this product could be stripping for you. There are many cleansing "conditioners" out there that will help keep your hair moisturized which is part of the reason why your hair might get so puffy. Hope this helps! ;-)

I'm no expert, but it works on curly hair so it should work on straight hair. It WILL clean the scalp. The question should really be, do you have a lot of product build up in your hair from "cones" products? (Silicone, Dimethicone...) If so, you need to clarify your hair of build up first. No Poo will not clarify, it is a daily cleanser that does not remove the moisture in the hair shaft. But truly straight hair holds moisture better than curly hair due to the nature of the hair shaft.

That would depend on a few things. If your hair is thick and dry, the No-Poo would probably be useful. However, if your hair is fine or oily, I would suggest DevaCurl Low-Poo as an alternative. It is very mild, but effectively cleans hair.

Personally, I don't think it works as well on straight hair. If you have very thick, hair (and by that I don't mean a LOT of hair necessarily, but that each strand is thicker or wiry in texture) then it may work for you. My experience is that while it's hydrating and very, very good for curly or thick textures, it's way too heavy for medium or finer hair textures of any volume.

For your hair type I'd go with just the no poo at first. It conditions very well and you don't want to weigh your hair down with additional conditioners.

answer 2
I use both products together, but I think the conditioner is probably not needed as much, you can easily buy any conditioner and get the same results, just make sure it isn't leaving any residues. The shampoo is the real star, and I find it works perfectly with my fine hair.

That being said, I use both the shampoo and the conditioner every time I wash my hair which is about every other day. The more you use these products the less you need, so even though it's expensive, I find they are worth it. I also use the ultra defining gel which is awesome!. If you use it according to the directions, your curls do not get weighed down like other products sometimes do. What happens is it creates what is called a 'cast' while your hair is drying (either using a blow-dryer with a diffuser or air drying) that locks in the moisture. Your dry hair feels a little crunchy but all you do is scrunch your hair and the cast is released and the resulting curls are soft, bouncy and last all day. Also there are awesome videos online through DevaCurl that show you the best way to use the products depending on your hair and curl type

I've used both for years. Focus No Poo on the scalp to clean and gently run down the rest of hair to clean any build up and use One Condition like you normally would any conditioner. When you rinse, leave a little bit of OC in your hair as a "leave in" conditioner and to hold in some moisture. How much depends on whether you have fine or coarse hair. I have thick coarse hair and can leave a lot in without any weigh down or build up. But you can use only OC as a scalp cleanser and conditioner if it works for you.

I used to use just the no poo with great results but when I got the one condition my frizz was completely reduced and my curls turned into ringlets. I leave a little one condition in the ends of my wet hair. I think the no poo is a must and the one condition is an awesome bonus.

They work very well together. I have 2b hair as well. Since your hair is fine, make sure to use a generous amount of No-Poo to cleanse your scalp, and rinse out thoroughly before applying One Condition only to the length of your hair that falls below your ears. If you find the combination too heavy for your hair, you may want to consider returning No-Poo and switching to Low-Poo, which has a little more cleansing power. Also remember not to use any products that contain silicones. If you are using these products, the No-Poo may not wash all of them out, and you might get build-up as a result.

I have 4A/4B hair, so I am not sure if my insight will be too helpful, but I notice that my hair feels slightly dry after just using the no poo. I always make sure I follow-up with the conditioner, but if your hair is smooth, you may not have trouble with just the no poo.

This is a really highly moisturizing product, with no sulfates to strip your hair, so it's actually great for heat tools and provides some protection. However whether that helps the Flat iron time factor, I have no way of knowing. It comes in travel size and you don't need a lot, so you could try it for less waste if you need to return. If you want moisture, I tell everyone to not quiiiite rinse it aaallll out. Then it's like a light leave-in conditioner.

Wen cleansing conditioners contain a small amount of amodimethicone, which is a silicone. There is lots of debate in the curly hair world about whether silicones are good for curly hair -- some people with superfine hair argue that silicones weigh down their curls. However, unless you have superfine hair, a small amount of silicone is actually proven to moisturize and seal the hair cuticle and prevent frizziness. I personally have fine, 3b type curly hair and prefer the Wen cleansing conditioners because my hair is shinier and has less frizz, which is important especially in the Washington DC summer humidity. Additionally I do not like the scent of DevaCurl No-Poo compared to the various Wen formulas. I do use the DevaCurl Light Styling Gel (despite the scent) because I find this is the best defining product for my hair type.
