Darby have you tried baking soda / ACV rinses instead of the SLS?

I would also recommend trying the Giovanni Triple Tea Treat or the Trader Joe's Shampoo w/tea tree oil in it.

Also, I think lavender eo spray is supposed to help with greasiness. Maybe the right lo-poo in combination with lavender spray would work?

Oh my. I hope my post didn't come across as nasty!

I thought if she tried something I found to be not so gentle, that would take care of the greasy/oily too moisturizing problems she's found with sulfate-free shampoos in the past.
You came off just fine. I think oddity was referring to her own remarks.

I'm glad you posted a list of ones that didn't work. Makes my list smaller!
OK, phew!

I'm glad I could help you! Though that list isn't complete. I drew a blank at those four, but I've tried my fair share. I'm still thinking. But in the meantime someone started a small 'fire' that I feel the need to put out so my mind is on that & other things.

Yeah - I meant that my mentioning that I was amused by the wording of your reply was probably unhelpful. It was such an odd way to put the effect of those kinds of shampoos.

Oh, oh, wait, I think Aubrey Organics was another sulfate-free shampoo that was not so nice to my hair.
