I know some of us aren't able to CO wash and use shampoo. I'm wondering what your favorite sulphate free shampoo is? I was using L'oreal everpure but I think it contains a silicone and I want to get away from it.
My holy grails: SM Moisture Retention Shampoo, GVP Conditioning Balm, Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee.

My current favorite is Shea Moisture (Moisture Retention). I've found many sulfate-free shampoos to feel very drying (as in my weekly sulfate shampoo leaves my hair feeling softer than most low-poos). This one cleans my scalp and roots well but doesn't leave my hair feeling stripped.

CLEANSE: VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea Clarifying, DevaCare No-Poo, CHS Treatment Shampoo
RO: DevaCare One Condition, SS Caitlin's Conditioner, Mop Top Daily Conditioner
LI: SS Repairing Protein Treatment, CHS Silk Leave-In
STYLE: Re:Coil, Curl Keeper, Deva Ultra Defining Gel, Curls Rock Amplifier and Strong Hold Mousse, Sweet Curls Elixirs Okra Gel and Hard Hold Gel, SS Curl Enhancing Jelly and Firm Hold Gel
I love both Jessicurl cleansers. I got the unscented versions because the scented ones smelled gross! They both leave my hair feeling clean but not stripped.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: CJ Beauticurls, CJ A&OO, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: Mop C, KCCC, SCE FSG
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

My favorite is still the Deva Care Low-Poo. I try others but this one still the best for me. I buy it in the quart bottle on Amazon so it's not so expensive.

Wash: DevaCare Low Poo

I use a "low poo" about once a month, but sometimes 2x a month. My favorite, so far, is Kinky Curly Come Clean. It leaves my hair soft, with hardly any tangles. It doesn't feel like straw after washing. I also like Queen Helene Mint Julep shampoo, diluted with water, if I think I need a hit of protein.

I've found that the Organix line works good for me. Shampoo is great, sulfate and silicone free. The conditioner is full of cones though. (eep!)
2c whirly curls, low porosity, medium texture/density

Experimenting, as usual. I've found that these products work well:

Low-poo: Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat shampoo and KC Come Clean shampoo
Cowash: CJ Daily Fix
RO: KCKT, DC OneC,
LI: KCKT (rarely used as a LI)
Stylers: CJ CiaB, KCSS, and homemade flax seed gel (FSG is a total HG btw!!)

I'm another fan of Jessicurls cleansers. I like the way Fantasy Island smells though. :P

Recently I mixed a small bottle of SMMR shampoo and some Giovanni TTT shampoo I have to be my "cone removal" shampoo. GioTTT has coco-betaine in it, but can be really harsh on it's own. The SMMR balances it out nicely so I can use it almost daily with no problems. I highly suggest
