I'vejust found and Awsome website that has almost everything a curly could ever need. I said almost because, what for it, drummrole please..... it has everything BUTCONDITIONER. I found while looking up carrot seed shampoo bars bc afroveda was all out....and so was every other site i went to( which ws like 5- how could they all be sold out???:>) they have atleast 17 shampoobars that i know of, not including all the other stuff they sell. Here's a list.
Shapoo Bars (duh)
Wipped Cocoa and Wipped Amela Butters
and lots of other stuff I'm to lazy to type. everything is all natural. they even use freash rainwater: tell me thats not dedication. there stuff sounds great, and, from what i read, if you use these shampoo bars you may not even need conditioner. there's some for everyhair type Website below < he's just too adorible (:5)
A lot of people buy from Chagrin Valley and like them. My hair just HATED the one I tried. It was so bad, I gave what I had away. I think it was the castor oil. If I hadn't used bars with success prior to that, I would never have used another. Luckily, I've found other bars to use--and my hair has never been better. I attribute a lot of my hair's improvement to natural soap bars.

What do you use for soap bars, if you don't mind my asking? I tried some of the Chagrin Valley and liked them for my body but my hair did feel coated after using them, and I imagine it was the castor oil also.
You and I have similar hair although your curl pattern is more regular than mine but since I cut all my curls off and restarted, my pattern is stronger than it was.
Growing out my curls. White hair, fine to medium texture but a lot of it. Low to medium porosity. Botticelli curls -- 2c/3a mix. My hair loves protein.
