I also like Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo. You can find it at Target, Whole Foods, and other stores, but it is much cheaper at iherb or vitacost.com. It's my go-to low-poo.

I've also bought citric acid for rinses.

There are what seems like millions of products on the site. I'm sure I'd find a ton of things to buy if I spent time browsing!

I believe a newer formula was released with the Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate (at least I think that's the explanation for the different formulas), but it is easy to find the old formula without it.

HTH!

I was just passing on a tip I've learned about double checking ingredient lists for formula changes. You seem to be offended by that. I'll refrain from helping you in the future.

I, and I'm sure others who read this in the future, would appreciate a "warning" of a current non-CG friendly formulation change when a product is recommended.

That's all.
^^Whoa that seems a bit harsh! Curlyserf was just letting you know that she likes the shampoo. I used to use the Giovanni TTTT shampoo myself (but have moved on to another shampoo) and didn't know there was an ingredient change. If you knew there was an ingredient change, then you should make sure and read the labels before purchasing...

And yes, "best" is rather subjective. I've bought the Alba Strong Hold Gel from iherb and want to try the AO Mandarin Magic sometime!
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Repair Me, CJ Smoothing
