Lowpoo suggestions

I am looking for a good lowpoo to use on an every other day basis. I have 2b/c hair and have to use some type of cleanser on my hair b/c conditioners and some products weigh it down. Right now I use queen helene(only for 2 days), but I was wondering if there are any other products out there that might help me out. I am new to all of this, my curls/waves have been colored and abused for many years and I need to get them healthy again. THANKS!!!!
Here are a few suggestions!

My fav that I've tried is Mop C Hydrating shampoo. My hair always feels really clean but not squeaky like after using it. It's a bit pricey but worth it!

I've tried Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat that you can buy at Walmart/Target but that felt a little stripping to my hair. It did feel good for a bit when my scalp gets itchy in the winter.

Others to try: Curl Junkie shampoo (they also have a cleansing conditioner no poo), Jessicurl (low poo and no poo). Haven't tried either one though.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Repair Me, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC, UFD Curly Magic
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

I like Aubrey Organics Blue Camomile Shampoo. It doesnt leave my hair too dry, nor does it leave it looking oily either.
I'm doing good with DevaCare LowPoo and I use it every other day. But as soon as I am done will try Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat, spent so much on products that I need to finish up some products or start learning how to use them different ways! Learned so much here about drugstore brands and CG products that I can't wait to shop!

I do wash every other or every 3 days.

Wanted to add: this works well for me & other coarse-haired daughter (better than any other Low-Poo that I've tried) but the fine-haired girls did better with Giovanni (which my hair HATED) or Daily Fix no poo, and also did OK with Mastey (another hate for my hair).
