Thanks AKgirl. I'm going to try Suave for co-wash (right now I'm using l'oreal sulfate free shampoo and conditioner but I'm not sure how I feel about it). I also took some suggestions from your product list/reviews I saw on MakeupAlley and ordered Recoil, JCNS, and the Life Drops (I can justify spending a bit more on styling products, which I'll use sparingly, but for now I know I need to sitck to drugstore lowpoos/conditioners). If anyone, has any favorite drugstore lowpoos/cowashes/leave-ins/rinse-outs, I'd love to hear. And I'm also still on the hunt for a color-safe beach spray.
