Recommendation for a CG safe shampoo(drugstore)

In the past few days I have noticed that my scalp has been really itchy and it seems like I have some product buildup. I think I might need might have to shampoo at least once a week. Any recommendations for a CG friendly shampoo that I can buy at a drugstore or Target or Walmart? Thanks!

I use Suave as a cowash and Sally's GVP conditioning balm as conditioner. Giovanni as my leave in and as a gel I usually put in either HETT gel with ecostyler or LA looks gel.

I think I might not be cowashing right. To me when I put the cowash in I don't feel like I have anything on (I guess because of the lack of lather). I try to massage my scalp but I don't know if Im doing it right.

I was in Whole Foods yesterday and was going to buy the Giovanni shampoo because it was on sale-4.99 but I decided not too! Maybe I'll go back.
Most wavies can't go without shampooing their hair. I try to stay cg but once a week I shampoo with a low sulfate shampoo since no poos are so hard to come by at a reasonable price.
Hair type- 2c
Low Poo- Giovanni TTTT
Conditioner- Nature's Gate Tea tree & blue cypress
Leave-In- Suave Naturals Tropical coconut/Aussie hair insurance
Stylers- HETT mousse, Cottonseed curlboost, HESMU spray gel, GF wet shine gel
Modified CG since March 2010!

In my experience, shampoos with low sulfates/sulfate derivatives are less harsh than coco betaine-only ones. In fact, the gentlest shampoo I've ever used had a combination of three surfactants, one of which was SLS, one of which was a sulfate derivative, and the other coco betaine. Likewise, the worst my hair has ever felt was after using a supposed 'lo poo' which just had coco betaine. I know everyone else has different results, but I feel like it's amounts of ingredient rather than ingredients themselves that cause problems for people. IMHO, anyway.

It almost feels like a lather. Sometimes if I want to feel extra clean I use some lemon juice with the cowash. Then make sure to rinse it out 100%. It's full of dirt after the wash, so it all has to come out to be clean. HTH
