The L'oreal shampoo contains both sulphates, polyquats and silicones, I think you may get buildup again with that shampoo.I havenít been exposing my hair to the sun recently though, and it still seems to happen. The only time it gets exposed is very short periods like walking in and out of the grocery store or stuff like that. It happened with Morrocan Oil Treatment and Healthy Sexy Hair It seems to be happening with the Curl Defining Cream too. All of these contain Argan Oil. Are you sure they contain very little oil? Iíve read that real Argan Oil is expensive and the products I use are around $40. Thatís expensive IMO.
Here is the site to the brand I use.

I may have potentially found a sulfate free shampoo that will work for me. Itís called LíOreal EverCreme Intense Nourishing Shampoo. I havenít used it yet. My mom saw it in the store and bought it for me. The texture is thick and creamy and it smells AMAZING! Which says a lot cause Iím sensitive to smells. Hereís the ingredients. Let me know what you think please. It seems like a really good product. The only thing Iím worried about is of course any hair lightening and also I seem to be sensitive to natural ingredients. I have used AG and Aveda in the past which contain a lot of natural ingredients and my scalp itched like crazy. It was horrible. The Aveda was the worse, I never used it again. The AG I kept using and just sucked it up. But I mean the Healthy Sexy Hair contained a lot of natural ingredients and I didnít react to that so maybe Iíll be fine. I mean, the worst is an itchy scalp and then I just wash it out. Will this shampoo get out product buildup? I see Coco Betaine on the list but that was in the Healthy Sexy and it never got rid of buildup, only caused it. But then again, I used a very very tiny amount. I assume Líoreal brand isnít concentrated and I can use a regular amount of shampoo with no problem?

Also, Firefox is right about Moroccan Oil, there is almost no oil in there. Check out the ingredient list, the first 3(!!!) ingredients are silicones, the argan oil is only the 5th on the list, meaning there is more of each type of silicone than there is of the one oil - what's first on the ingredient list is what there is most of in the product. Pricing doesn't neccesarily have anything to do with the ingredients. Moroccan oil is just an overpriced silicone product I think mostly due to branding. You can get pure argan oil a lot cheaper than that as far as I know.
Moroccan oil caused so much buildup for me before I went CG, so although it's a product raved about everywhere and the hair feels good with it, it's just really clogging up your hair - it was for mine anyways.
