Default GAHHH!!!!!

Gahhh! Gahhhh! Gaaaahhhhhh! my poor curls D: Ive been super busy and for the past few weeks ive been using suave natural shampoo and any condish i could afford...so I picked up olive oil condish a few weeks ago.... figued it would be safe... NAH UH! Stupid shampoo is loaded with sulfate (Screams) and the olive oil condish is so nasty! It gathers at my root and makes my hair all frizzy and stringy. But since ive been so busy I havent read my shampoo lable till i finished the bottle And i was blaming the freezing cold weather here in can for the huge halo of frizz....its my products So anyways my sister picked up my family shampoo (us being all curlys) which is sulfate-curly friendly shampoo (its called AG hair products) and i picked up Tressemea (sp? :|) naturals (which i first used when i first went CG) So anyways can anyone give me some review on these two products as i am going into the states this wkend and can pick up different products...thanks guys

I bought the AG Curl Shampoo and Conditioner late last year during a liter sale at Ulta. I'm not normally a fan of low-poo, so I probably can't give the bet review. It wasn't the most gentle low-poo I've tried (that would be Shea Moisture), but wasn't stripping or drying. I ended up liking the shampoo better than the conditioner (conditioner is not CG-friendly) and am still using it in my rotation.

I liked the shampoo initially, but noticed that my hair would dry out if I used it several days in a row. I didn't think anything of it, since I alternate products regularly anyway, until you mentioned in a thread on olefin sulfonate (Olefin sulfoconate vs. traditional sulfate) that AG has it. Since I've found gentler low-poos that work just as well, I stopped using the recoil.

Same for the conditioner: I liked it a lot, and got great results as long as I didn't use it too often. But I've since found cone-free products that are as good as AG, so I sold it on the board along with the shampoo.

In general, I'm not a purist about sulfates and cones, but my preference is to use CG products IF and only IF they equal the performance of their non-CG counterparts,

I love the conditioner and the curl trigger and recoil. What products did u use that are CG friendly and give u the same results?

Darcy's Botanicals pumpkin seed conditioner is my favorite. Nice slip, easy detangling, virtually eliminates frizz, unique scent. Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture (to answer whisper_hotshot's question) is a close second, and would be #1 if I liked the smell. Like many of us, I try everything that catches my eye, but I always find myself coming back to TN NM. It's not quite as rich as the DB PSC, but it's inexpensive and widely available, which is a huge plus. Better yet, it was reformulated last year to move the good stuff (avocado and aloe vera) higher up in the ingredients.

I absolutely adore CJ Rehab, and would probably use it as a RO if it weren't for the price tag. I use it about 2x/week now.
