    I tend to use "Slowly does it". The usage is similar to that of "easy does it".

    It's a suggestion to be careful. It means something like: "Do this slowly, and the results will be much better than if you don't."

    I have never heard any native speaker say either "slow does it" or "slowly does it".

    I have certainly heard "easy does it", which means that something should be done gently and carefully. I have also heard "slow and steady wins the race."
