GENTLE cheap non-sulfate shampoos?
 
I have a neighbor who itches whenever her shampoo or body wash hits her legs. I believe it could very well be an issue with the sulfates.

She didn't itch from the salon sulfate-free shampoos I gave her small samples of to try, but they're too pricey for her income.

Are there any cheap non-sulfate shampoos that are GENTLE?

I guess natural or organic are OK to list too, if some can be found in regular grocery stores & are fairly inexpensive.

Though I think I remember Avalon & Aubrey Organics leaving my hair feeling matted & stripped. Yet her hair might react differently to them. :dontknow:

Does she have access to Trader Joe's or Sally's?

The nearest Trader Joe's is about 6 hrs away. :(

I'll have a look at the link for Sally items though. Thanks!

Whispering windz farm whipped soap. Which isnt a soap at all. Its the gentlest I have found so far. No vinegar rinse needed.

I second whispering windz whipped soap. Especially since your friend could use it for a body wash as well as a shampoo. More bang for your buck

If she wants to stay the grocery store route, there's also giovanni shampoos which are sulfate free (if you've got a target near you, they usually have the travel size bottles so she could test it out). A lot of grocery stores carry it now, as well as Target.

ohhh those soap bars look divine:) thanks for sharing the link.
To OP.
Target sells the Giovanni line which runs around 8.00 a bottle
Suave naturals -- not sure if it is sulfate free. I've only ever used the condish.
Walgreens sells bare naked. I think that's the brand. You can often find a buy one get one free.
Burt's bee run's about 8.00 a bottle.

I hate the Giovanni 50:50 to wash my hair - it leaves it too dry but it's one of the best body washes I've ever used!

Walgreens sells the Naked Naturals line as does CVS. The smoothing one is supposed to be very nice. Burt's Bees Avalon Organics and Giovanni can all be purchased at wal mart over by the skin care aisle.

I'll add the Giovanni & Naked Naturals to the list I got from Sweet's site.

California Baby is on the list. I found J & J and Burt's Bees harsh, but she might not. So I'll add those too, though one type of BB is already on the list.

I really like Christophe Beverly Hills Pure Naturals sulfate-free shampoo. I can find it at any local drugstore, but I'm not sure about how easy it would be to find it where you are. It runs about the same price as Burt's Bees (which I also found to be harsh--I even had an allergic reaction).

We also have Naked Naturals here. The conditioners are AWFUL (full of silicones), but the shampoo isn't bad.

lazy loops 09-07-2009 08:34 PM

OK, I wrote down Christophe & Naked Naturals too.

Any others that aren't noted above & on Sweet Pea's site?

I took my son to a dermatologist for his eczema last week, and she recommended a brand called CeraVe. It's available at CVS and Walgreens. The cleanser doesn't have any sulfates in it. I didn't buy the cleanser (only the cream), so I'm not sure how much it runs. It may be closer to $14 or $15 a bottle, but she may want to check into it.

lazy loops 09-08-2009 08:14 AM

I might want to check into that for my son.

I'll put it on the list for her too, thanks!

I have really bad eczema too, and I use Aveeno body wash, in the unscented kind (that probably has sulphates in it, but it's really gentle to me)

Wiggilyhair 09-08-2009 03:58 PM

For Naked Naturals, the best one is supposed to be the Smoothing version (CVS or Rite Aid). Walgreens near me only have the Lavendar version.

ditto. LOVE the stuff. highly recommend it to everyone.

If they are available, I recommend LiveClean products. The moisturizing shampoo is fabulous! In the stores here you can usually get it for 5.99 or 6.99. This one looks really cool ... haven't seen it in the stores yet, though.

lazy loops 09-08-2009 11:05 PM

I've never heard of/seen Live Clean. :?

I forgot about David Babaii.

Glad I stumbled upon this thread! I definitely have to look these up.
