In search of: gentler shampoo that will cut the 'cones

Like Tree3Likes

My daughter is going to college in the fall and doesn't want to go CG, but would like a more gentle/less drying shampoo. She's using Nexxus Humectress conditioner and doesn't want to change, but it's rather coney (I bolded what I think are the cones):

She's currently using a standard Tresemme shampoo. I need to find her something not terribly expensive that's readily available and doesn't come in tiny bottles. She's going to be in a very challenging program and doesn't want to think about it - she just wants to do the same thing every day.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!

Would she be willing to try a cleansing conditioner? I use cones and I clarify once a week with a sulphate to get rid of them. My clarifying shampoo is from Great Clips and it rocks. It's 9 bucks, but I have had it for 6 months and it's not even halfway gone.
I hear anything with coco betatine will take them out. I believe that the Yes To products work for this.

If you clarify once a week what do you do the other days?

What's the Scoop on Silicones?

The Giovanni poos have silicone-breaking surfactants in them and are rather gentle. I like them! I've tried the 50/50 and TTTT.
fine - normal porosity*?- medium density - normal elasticity. Hard water. SoCal.
*Used to be low-porosity, but I lightened my hair 1-2 shades, so I may be normal-porosity now.

What are her hair properties and what will be the humidity/ dew points she will be dealing with? CURLS is a widely available brand now being stocked in Walmart and Target and they do a low-poo. They also have massive bottles of their regular line on the CURLS website.

Desert Essence coconut shampoo should be good for getting rid of the cones but is still gentle.

My clariffy shampoo is mainly to remove hard water build up so it's strong. I want to use it less often so I'm trying the Gud shampoo

The ones I've used and liked:

Giovanni SaS, and Renpure Organics (keratin or Argan oil.)

The Giovanni is the "strongest" of those, but I didn't find it stripping. (Definitely not a daily poo for me, though!)

Yes to Cucumbers is another gentle low poo that should cut the cones. I have not tried it yet, but just bought it a couple days ago bc I've heard good things! (And am a PJ. Lol!)
2c/3a/3b, Fine/med, Dense, high porous, & normal elas.

Lo-poo - Renpure Keratin, SMR, Giovanni SaS
clarifying - mix Johnson's H2T with low poo
Co-wash - Suave Nats. clar. or coco.
RO - GVPCB, Ion Eff. Care, TN.
LI - SMR, Cure Care, or RO
Seal - MO or Jojoba
DT - + honey, ACV, & EVOO to SM masque & GVPCB
PT - Gelatin!, CNPF
Styling - FSG, AIF, BRHG, LALS/PS, GF curl spray gel, SM Souffle/Smoothie, LOOB
Oils - MO!, EVOO, jojoba, GSO, SM Elixer, EVCO, VO5 Hairdressing
Thanks! I'll look at the ingredients /prices /availability of all of these.
