Products that fly under the radar?

Like Tree2Likes

At my local TJ Maxx and Marshalls, the DermOrganics conditioning shampoo and masque are each $20 for 1 liter.

I've been using the shampoo for a week and I'm very happy with it so far. Just picked up the masque yesterday and I'm looking forward to trying it out.
How moisturizing is the dermorganics conditioning shampoo? I saw it but it was such a big bottle, I didn't know if I wanted to buy it.

I consider it one of the three most moisturizing low-poos that I've tried. I get a very clean feeling from it, but not stripped the way that most of the other low-poos feel. This one does not have coco betaine or sodium olefin sulfonate. It's only milder surfacants. I still follow with a richer rinse out- I admittedly still get a little paranoid but that clean feeling (probably the result of two years of DC No-Poo).

Cure Care (the Sally's version of Unicure) is excellent!! I use it for everything--seriously. I use it as a cowash, rinse-out, facial wash, facial moisturizer, body wash, and combine it with coconut oil for a body moisturizer. My skin tends to break out, but I have no break outs since I switched to it, and my hair is so soft! Plus, at $3 for 20oz, this stuff is definitely worth it. It should be worth a lot more, haha. The key is to use a lot.

However, there is a reason those products are under the radar. Kinky-Curly, for instance, is awesome. I can't remember the last time I have used a product for so long. I am halfway through the bottle, and as a PJ, that never happens, haha. I use the shampoo, leave-in/detangler, custard, and Cure Care. They work really well together!

I really like Silk Naturals Curl Gel. It made it's way onto the boards awhile ago but I don't think it ever got really popular. I also like Juice Organics Pomegranate conditioner. I'm upset because I guess they recently reformulated it but I don't know what the new formula is it's not listed on their website yet.
To each her own, I guess. I really hate the Kinky Curly line. It made my hair limp and lifeless, and totally dried me out.

One shampoo and condish line I just discovered at my local health food store is the Sonoma Soap Company. Great sulfate free shampoo (they were out of the condish so I'll have to get it the next time I'm in), lathers really well despite not having any sulfates, makes my hair feel clean, is super gentle, and smells great. They have 3 different scents, too. A decent sized bottle for $9.99, (16oz I think) and I got it on sale for 40% off, LOL. I checked online reviews before buying, and did not find a single negative one.
They have body soaps and lotions also. I bought the bar soap and love it.
Can't wait to try the conditioner. I'm going to buy the set for my mom for her birthday next month since I'm trying to trick her into going CG
That's me with FSG as my styler!!
