I need a good low-poo...

Hey curlies, I need a good low poo, I'd prefer something relatively inexpensive that I can find on ground. I'm thinking Shea moisture but not the moisture retention one because I'm a little fragrance sensitive. Anyway, any ideas?

I've been using the Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Hair Milk and Smoothie, and I'm really impressed with how moisturized my hair is. SM is good stuff! Haven't tried their low-poo though.

As for a low-poo, I use L'Oreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner and I really like it. It doesn't lather, but it's more than a cowash since it has cleansing ingredients. It has quite a strong fragrance, but since it's only in contact with the scalp for a few minutes in the shower, it might be ok? HTH!

Hey! I'm new to the community.
Curl Pattern: 3A
Porosity: Low
Density: High
Hair Width: Fine
Hair Length: 2 inches below the shoulders
And I have quite a bit of fizz

I live in a place with high humidity. Can anyone please suggest a product for me?
According to what i read on this site, i need

Protein-free
daily conditioners with humectants(glycerin or honey)
moisturizers rich in emollients such as shea butter, jojoba oil, coconut oil and mineral oil
lighter, liquid-based products such as hair milks
heavy products such as gels, creams and butters
Deep conditioning

Its confusing!
Thanks a lot in advance!
