Your Shampoo, fellow 3a's?

I have a love-hate relationship with shampoo, I've decided.

Right now I'm using Pantene Full & Thick. It's pretty nice, but the ingredients freak me out. I used to use Elucence but it wasn't moisturizing enough and it was a biotch to comb my hair. What do you ladies use? As most of you know, being 3a and having finely-textured hair (my hair's not thin, just fine and super soft on its own), it's usually harder to find something that's not going to make your hair stick to your head. :P

Thanks for the advice in advance.

I would love to know this too. I've decided I need to shampoo to have the best hair I can and I'm just using up my Ouidad Clear Control shampoo at the moment. It is great for me but am looking for something else (aka cheaper) to use.
3A - shoulder length

Shampoo: Akamuti African Black Soap
(every 3 days)

Daily Cond/Co-Wash: MopTop Daily Conditioner
(daily rinse out fully)

Daily Leave-In: MopTop Leave-It In Conditioner
(daily on wet hair in shower - not too much - before plopping)
Styling: Paul Mitchell Extra Body Sculpting Foam
(daily)

Paves nosulfates allowed

I have tried a bunch of sulfate free shampoos and so far I like Mastey Traité Shampoo and Jessicurl Gentle lather Shampoo the best. I have no good luck with Sulfate shampoos usually. Especially not in the long run.

My hair is thick, but I have fine strands. It gets weighed down easily, gets dried out easily, over-conditoioned easily and I have a some what oily scalp.
Complicated.

I shampoo about twice a week now. Right now I am using Avalon Organics Nourishing Shampoo in Lavender. I really like it, and its lasts a loooong time between my family, and I. No sulfates, so it does not dry my hair out. Good ingredients!
I have not shampooed for months, but just tried Creme of Nature shampoo and LOVE it! I only use it if I feel grimy.
Creme of Nature is all I've used for about a month probably. I use it about every 6 days. I just water wash in between and maybe an occasional co wash.

I do use some easily removable cones (like in Redken Ringlet and One C), and I've had no build up!

I've used Paves No Sulfates Allowed and it was ok, made my hair feel a little too squeaky clean but didn't dry my hair out. Now I'm using Elucence Moisture Benefits Shampoo and I absolutely LOVE it!! This is my HG shampoo! It smells great, moisturizes, lathers up really well and detangles!

Devacurl Low-Poo is the one I use most often. Sometimes Jessicurl HCC. Haven't tried Gentle Lather yet.
I usually co-wash with Suave Natruals Trop.Coconut condish, but sometimes I will add a couple of drops of Lush Assisi to it (maybe once every week or two). Other than that I might use Devacurl No-Poo or Low-Poo once a month.

Creme of Nature. I don't feel guilty using shampoo w/ this one.
waves (2c) wanting to curl (3a)
1. Deva Lo Poo (my fav but $$ and I end up using so much)
2. Avalon Organics Lavender from Trader Joes

Your hair, it's everywhere. Screaming infidelities, taking its wear.
I use Cream of Nature poo every 2 days & Ojon Ultra Hydrating poo weekly followed by a DT. I have been doing this routine for months now & I have absolutely NO dandruff left AT ALL!! My hair seems very "happy" I would have to give this combo HG status!

Long layers, past BSL
Loving: CON poo, Elucence MBC, Jessicurl WDT, B&A Gel.
SLS free poos since Feb 6/05
i use johnson's detangling baby shampoo a couple times a week. sulfates are in it, but lower down on the list. so i get the clean feel without my hair feeling stripped.
i also clarify with Elucence's clarifier once every other week because of hard water. doesn't strip my hair at all! it's excellent!
3A Once again on the quest for BSL healthy curly hair....
i just bought creme of nature moisturizing shampoo to give it a try. My hair has felt kind of build-upy lately.
