I'm currently using an organic, non-sulfate shampoo because though my 3C curls are dry, my scalp is oily. (I have a bad case of dandruff or "chronic seborrheic dermatitis" as my dermatologist called it.) This shampoo has helped my scalp, and I feel that my hair is still quite healthy.

So... is this CG? Is it modified CG? Am I going against the CG bible and thus deemed a curly heretic?
It depends on the ingredients, really. A shampoo without 'sulfates' but with other detergents would be considered a "low poo" and you'd be modified CG. I'm GUESSING that's where your product falls, but it's hard to say for certain without knowing the ingredients.

That being said, if you find something that works for you, go with it. Don't worry about the labels
