I'm trying to hone down my product usage.

I want to use a natural shampoo with very few synthetic ingredients, but one that will impart detangling properties and softness, so that i can forgo using a rinse-out or leave-in conditioner afterward.

anyone? is it easy to maintain healthy hair without using conditioner of any kind?

my hair stats: lengthy 4aish-3cish hair (one length all around. front of breasts in front, bottom of shoulder blades in back) thick, very tangly.

thanks
