Did you know that in addition to the hair care routine such as washing with shampoo, mask and conditioner, there are also other methods - which don't even involve shampoo? That's it! Get to know these new ways to wash your hair and identify which one might be the best option for you.

To begin with, it is important to know that No and Low Poo are names given to hair care techniques based on a care routine initially created for the curly audience called "Curly Girl Method" . Take advantage of the fact that we are talking about this subject and learn more about this method through an interview we did for our blog in this link.

Now that you understand the context, let's get to the definitions:

Low Poo:

It is a technique to sanitize the hair, means that the shampoo is light (sulfate-free), also known as shampoo sulfate-free, makes less foam than common shampoos and provides cleaning to the hair without removing the hair's natural protection.

* Suitable for all hair types.

How to do Low Poo?

First, you must do a prewash with a mild shampoo.

Next, wash your hair with a conditioner or cream indicated for the technique No Poo that is, choose free products. Let it act for about two minutes, then rinse the hair.

When using a shampoo Low Poo (which promotes a gentler wash), you will notice less foam. And there's nothing wrong with that. The important thing is to know that the agents that clean the hair are acting on your strands, removing impurities and taking care of the health of the hair and scalp.

* Indicated for dry and frizzy hair looking for oil control from root to tip.

In the Poo:

It is the method that eliminates completely the shampoo from the hair washing routine: in its place, conditioners or cleansing creams, freed from any chemical agent such as insoluble silicones and petrolatum, enter.

* Indicated for curly and frizzy hair in order to rescue the natural oiliness of the hair.

IMPORTANT: In the No and Low Poo washing methods, products free of sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oils, Vaseline, liquid paraffin or insoluble silicones must be used.


It is the hair hygiene technique in which the conditioner replaces the use of shampoo to clean the strands. The conditioner to wash the hair needs to be released.


With clean, damp hair, apply Novex Super Aloe Vera Modeling Gel or Novex Segura Tudo Meus Curls Gelatin strand by strand, evenly, from length to ends.

For a controlled volume, apply the product closest to the root. Knead the wires starting the movement from the ends to the root.

Repeat the movement as many times as necessary, helping the formation of curls.
