Default Trader Joe's shampoo?

can you guys tell me, is trader joe's shampoo Low sulfates? or is it No sulfates with something else like coco-betine? i love my creme of nature, but i think i need to wash with something that cleans a little more...i'm not sure..but i figured worse case, it's only $3.00 or something for a bottle from trader joes.
and which ones do you like best? i think they have a couple different shampoos now. and i'm not all that hot at reading ingredient lables. hahaha

thanks!

I've tried both Nourish & Refresh shampoos and wasn't thrilled with either of them. They are gentler than the average drugstore 'poo but just not gentle enough for me. Between the two of them, I found Refresh to be better but I didn't do a whole lot of experimenting with it because the scent is too strong for me. I used it as liquid hand soap instead. It doesn't linger on hands the way it does in hair.

I love the Refresh conditioner for CO washing and coating my ends before scalp washing. It's not moisturizing enough for me to use as an actual conditioner. Refresh 'poo has a strong scent but the conditioner has a light citrus scent. Nourish Spa condish is the protein condish, which is possibly why it gives me fuzzy hair. I also don't love the scent. It's kind of weird and hard to describe.

I like TJ's Nourish shampoo, it leaves my hair nice and clean.

Ingredients: Purified Water, organic rosemary oil, organic valencia orange citrus, organic mango, organic lemongrass, organic ginko biloba, organic willow bark, organic echinacea, organic willow bark, organic sea kelp, organic chamomile flower, organic textured soy protein, organic lavender, organic grapefruit, C14-16 Olefin sulfonate, cocamidopropyl betaine, vitamin E, citric acid, methylparaben, proplylparaben, sea salt, botanical fragrance.

I'm not sure how strong the C14-16 Olefin sulfonate is in general?
Some people find that this shampoo strips dye from your hair.

I have only tried Refresh. I use it from time to time, and it is more gentle that sulfate-poos with the sulfate right after water, but it would probably be harsh for a lot of people. Try looking at some health-store poos, like Aubrey or Avalon. I think they just have coca. betaine. But there was some talk about Avalon adding cones, but I think that was the conditioner. I actually have the Avalon lavender shampoo, but have never used it!

I guess that stuff can be just as harsh as a sulfate.

It is a very drying ingredient.
