and spent the money for the BB brand shampoo and conditioner. When it's finished, I'll probably buy a mild shampoo and conditioner from whole foods or aubrey organics. At one point I purchased the giovanni tea tree shampoo, but it totally sripped my bkt...I'm trying to stay clear of any form of sodium in my products but it's hard. Different forms of sodium,. even the coconut derived ones, can be harmful to the treatment. However, the BB product contains some kind of Disodium...so hard! for My own reasons, I steer clear of anything containing citric acid. Although I can't find anything online, I'm on the fence about whether or not citric acid can strip a bkt, so I stay away.
