I went to Harmon at lunch today and got her a generic (Harmon Face Values) Renpure Organics Argon Oil shampoo. It was $6 for 21 ounces vs. $6 for $16 on the name brand. I hope she likes it! I can stock up there for her (it's right by my office and has a great selection!) or the brand name version is available on Amazon.

I walked around with my reading glasses and list of gentle and harsh cleaning agents, lol. I wonder what the guy stocking the aisle thought of me. The woman at check out says she uses that shampoo and loves it.

Thanks for all the suggestions! You really helped me narrow down which brands to pull of the shelf and scour for ingredients.

I would also consider the Hello Hydration duo if she ever wants to try something else- it's a great price and I've had good luck with it. If you have a Costco membership you can buy it in packs of two and you get a great savings (very student friendly).

Do you mean this one?

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo with Orchid and Coconut Milk - NaturallyCurly.com

If so, it has sulfates, which I was trying to avoid.

Does she like the smell of grapefruit?! If so, I highly recommend the Gud line from Burt's Bees. It has coco sulphate in it though. My hair is delicate and dries up easily but this shampoo is gentle and low lather! And it smells sooo good

I just bought and tried the Giovanni Smooth as Silk poo and LOVED it! But like Jas, I only poo once a week or so.

From my understanding, sodium coco-sulfate is basically the same thing as sls.Sodium dodecyl sulfate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Aww bummer :P it's fine for me because my hair in so fine and thin it needs and tolerates sulphate. But if you are anti sulphate then that's a no-go.

She loves the Renpure knockoff I bought for her. After two washes her hair looks better than it has for a while, so much so that I plan to borrow it while she's at school one day to try as a low poo. :-)
