Can Fine oily hair CO?
Aug 13th, 2004 at 6:10pm
 
Hi Everyone,

Can fine, oily, straightish hair CO wash? 

What have been your experiences with different washing routines/products?

What kinds of detangling combs (wet hair combs) are your favorites?

Thanks,
strawberryfine

Ella,

CO is "conditioner only"... many people, especially curlies, find this method useful when their hair can't deal with the cleansers in shampoo. That's okay, I didn't know what CO was until about two months ago.

Strawberryfine,

I like the Rachael Stephens line of combs for wet use. They're seamless, handmade, polished, and slightly cheaper than the Kent (when you buy a lot).
My hair has been oily, and I didn't have much luck with CO myself (sticky dandruff got the better of me). I found it better to remove the gunk with a very gentle shampoo.

... as for the other finehair issues, I'm a coarsehair.... so I won't interfere here Roll Eyes

Thanks Anais,
Could you tell me what some of your favorite shampoos are?
I get so confused about ingredients that I'm not sure what a gentle shampoo is and what ingredients to avoid or look for.
I'm going to look for the combs you mentioned now. Smiley

Thank you,
strawberryfine

Ella.
I just found out what CO was recently, too! Cheesy

I just found the Rachael Stephens combs and I REALLY like the way they look!

Now to just decide which ones and place an order!
Any recommendations? I hope, I hope....

Thanks Anais!

Heeey, no problemo Grin
Careful as RS's "coarse" teeth is really not as coarse as they look. You'll want to go for the "wide" teeth if you're using it for wet combing. It'll be gentler on your fine hair. Personally I have a coarsetooth comb (the #42 I think) but my hair is really heavy duty... Tongue

What about fine hair and an oily scalp?  I would have thought the conditioner on the scalp would just make it oilier, but someone here suggested that it might be the best thing for an oily scalp.  And they might be right. 

Has anyone tried this?  What type of conditioner do you use?

Hi UP_Lisa,

I have fine hair, and I always thought I had a pretty oily scalp - I was one of those who shampood every day. Roll Eyes When I started COing, I forced myself to only wash every other day, suffering through greasy hair on the in-between days. With time, my scalp settled down and I would consider it normal now. I wash (CO) every 3-4 days.

I use whichever el cheapo conditioner is on sale, it hasn't seemed to matter what I use as long as I clarify with vinegar every couple of weeks. Give CO a try (I love it!), just be prepared to persist through a greasy "trial period".

Good luck!

Thanks so much for your help.  I suppose I'll try it.  I guess I shouldn't have spent money on some new supposedly really gentle organic shampoos.  Well,  I guess I could use them in between.

So is the conditioning wash the only conditioner you use on your hair, then?

Yep, but it may be that I'm able to get away with that because my hair is so short (not quite shoulder length). There are many here who do more complicated routines; I'm just too lazy to bother and lucky that I don't need to yet. I would say that it took 3 weeks to a month before my hair/scalp settled down and I really started to love CO.

Make sure you have plenty of conditioner at home, because you go through a LOT!  Roll Eyes

I would think you would have to have a conditioner with certain ingredients in order to actually clean the hair.  You feel that any conditioner will work?

Also, my hair is so soft already, that I don't want to make it any softer.  I won't be able to do a thing with it.

When I started to CO wash I figured that by examining the ingredients I could figure out exactly what was different about conditioners that work for CO washing and those that don't, but there didn't seem to be any specific difference.

I can only speak for myself. My hair has responded well to all conditioners except John Frieda (the moisturizing kind). They all seem to do a pretty good job of cleaning for me. I avoid silicones in conditioners, but use them nearly every day in styling products.

no?? okay, but what for conditoners who don't mention at all sodium lauryl sulphate as an ingredient?? cuze right now i only found one conditioner that is coneless and has SLS as last ingredient. most  light ones i found didn't contain it at all.
do you use conditioners devoid of SLS that do wash ok as well?
