CG-Friendly Products List!!

Like Tree29Likes

LAST UPDATED: 7/12/14

This is a list of the commonly used products amongst wavies, curlies and kinkies. The other lists that have been started are quite outdated, so I thought I'd begin this one. I obviously didn't include everything, so leave a comment below if you think I need to add something or take something out!

KEY
Shampoos are sulfate free.
Gels are (drying) alcohol free.
All products are free of non-water soluble 'cones.
Water-soluble cones = WSC
Parabens = P
Heavy protein(s) or protein(s) high on the ingredients list = PH
At least 95% natural OR organic = green
Pricier products (>$2/oz.) = bold

NOTE: Some multi-purpose products will overlap in certain categories.

CG-Friendly Product Lines *Please note: A line may be marked as "pricey" (i.e., bolded) if ~50% or more of the products in the line cost more than $2/oz.*

This is awesome! Thank you for doing this. I don't see any of the Shea Moisture stuff.

Shampoo:
Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
Shea Moisture Organic Shea Butter Curl & Shine Shampoo Coconut & Hibiscus (PH)
Shea Moisture Organic African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo
(I didn't realize Shea Moisture made a flaking/itching shampoo with tea tree oil, and now I'm super excited to try it. Just, yes.)

Rinse Out:
Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Restorative Condition
Shea Moisture Organic Yucca & Baobab Volumizing Conditioner Yucca & Baobab (PH)

Deep Condish:
Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Hair Masque

Gels:
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Souffle Gel

Other:

Shea Moisture Yucca & Baobab Thickening Moisture Mist (PH) (This has a alcohol I don't know anything about?)

I know the mists aren't that popular, so you can take or leave those. I hope that helps, overall, though. You can review them if you want, because I might be mistaken.
