Default Fav Co-Wash and Condish?

I have been using Deva No Poo and One C for awhile. I am wondering if they are causing build up in my hair? Has anyone else had this problem?

I think I may try to switch to what are some of your favorite Co-Wash products? Favorite Condish?

I really like As I Am C-Wash and Ouidad Co-Wash I'm finding that just using regular conditioners for co-washing causes build-up >_<

Default VO5, Herbal Essences HIS, Dr Miracle

I really like VO5 Moisture Milks in Strawberry. Until I went back to VO5 I was using Bio Infusion but I realized it was making my hair more frizzy.
The leave in I use is Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong since I noticed that when I use it I don't shed as much, though I'm hoping to go the no cone no sulfate route in the near future.
When I use deep conditioner, I really like Dr. Miracle.

I also use Luster's Pink Organics Hair Lotion from time to time, and now I'm using African Pride Olive Miracle Growth Oil every day.

I'll second joseybird's As I Am cowash recommendation. It's great stuff. As far as conditioners go, have you tried any of the Aubrey line? I've found their Honeysuckle Rose to be a great rinse-out condish, and if your hair like protein, their GBP is awesome as well. For a leave-in, I like the Giovanni line.

I haven't tried the Aubrey line, but I'm still experimenting so I probably will eventually! I work a few doors down from a Sally's, and there's a Walgreens along the bus route I take to and from work. My own place of work has a hair care section so I'm in product junkie heaven right now, hahaha.

I love As I Am for my hair (the length of it) but it causes serious buildup on my scalp. Really bad dry scalp too. I shudder just thinking about it. I love Trader joe's tea tree tingle as a co-wash. No buildup and it has moisturizing oils that are also cleansing. Also I like to low poo once a week with one of the Shea Moisture low poos. (I own two but I'm sure I'd love the third one as well.) Haven't had any buildup since I switched.

I'm going to have to try the Trader Joe's one. I have As I Am Coconut Co-Wash and I think it's too heavy or maybe because it's lacking protein, but it doesn't work for me.
