Good organic haircare???

I'd really like to switch over to more natural/organic hair-care but every time I go to the health food store and look at their products, they're LOADED with silicones or sls's. I have a moderate to low budget and don't really want to get into mail-ordering a bunch of stuff.

Has anyone here found a good organic line that performs decently without breaking the bank???

Thanks!

I have the coconut shampoo and the shea butter conditioner from Organix and I looove them!! I found them at Target - they're not drugstore priced at about $7 for 13 oz, but it's reasonable. Plus, the shampoo is sulfate-free and the conditioners only have mild cones, I think. The shea butter one has Cylomethicone and Dimethicone. Plus, they're organic and smell AMAZING!

I use Nature's Gate Organics shampoo. I don't know about cones because I haven't tried their conditioners and cones don't bother me anyway, but the shampoo doesn't contain SLS. It has sodium myreth sulfate, though. The shampoo really works for me - it cleanses w/o drying, and doesn't bother my sensitive scalp. I have to order it because our health food stores don't carry it. It cost about $8 a bottle, but it's worth it. I do fine with cheaper conditioners, but shampoo isn't something I can go cheap on. They've re-formulated some of their products recently, but I don't think the Lavendar and Aloe shampoo (the one I use) has been affected, or at least, I didn't see any major changes in formulation.

Aubrey Organics. Shampoo and conditioner are ~ $10/bottle, but they are great!
How many of these have silicones that you know of??

Nature's Gate makes some nice conditioners and shampoos that aren't too harsh on the wallet. The aloe vera ones leave my hair fairly soft; a big bottle is around $5 or $6. No cones or proteins in the aloe one; some of the others, including the "organics" line, have some proteins. Can be found at most health-food or Whole Foods type stores.
I've had good luck with Burt's Bees their products are sulfate and -cone free, they average 90% natural, and you can get them at CVS.

You might be interested in Magick Botanicals. In spite of their name, they do not contain any botanical ingredients. Their formulations are very simple and are fragrance-free. They are not advertised as organic, but they have better ingredients than most of the so-called natural product lines out there.

I found the BEST shampoo and conditioners a few years back....called African Formulas. As far as I know it is a very small company out of Florida. They have a line called Let it Grow..which is wonderful!! You can only get their stuff off the internet unfortunately. And, despite the name, they have a product for all hair types.
I love the Giovanni products. They're all sulfate and silicone free.

Another vote for Giovanni. Fantastic stuff. Sulphate and silicone free (except for the shine serum product, which is primarily silicone). Fantastic slip
So I started using Nature's Gate (the organic ones in the green bottles) and I think I like them.

I'm using the tea tree one to CO wash my scalp (I shampoo about 1x a week and CO wash the rest of the time at this point) and the Aloe-Lavender one to condition.

These work SO MUCH BETTER for me than the V05 or Suave when I'm trying to reduce shampoo usage. The cheaper stuff just seems to build up so fast. At about 3 days with those conditioners my hair starts to feel waxy and weighed down.

With the Nature's Gate I feel like my hair is more moisturized but not so weighed down-- which means I can get away with using a stronger hold gel-- which means better definition.

My goal is to eliminate shampoo altogether but I have such scalp issues that I usually don't get too far. I may try adding a little more tea tree to the conditioner when I do a CO wash to see if that helps me along... We'll see.

Higher quality products do seem to be the way to go so far.

I too love Nature's Gate and use their conditioners to CO wash. I also love Aubrey Organics and Giovanni. Only problem w/ Giovanni is that they contain wheat protein, which sometimes doesn't agree with my hair.
