Thank you for your replies! I used shampoo this morning-V05 Blushin Apple gentle cleansing (great scent, btw) and my curls look much better. Go figure!

As far as Co-washes, I've used all the favorites-Suave Coconut, milk and honey and aloe...V05 Kiwi Lime, etc.

I may try Activate Shampoo. The only place I can get it is Ulta, and I'm staying out of there. I spend too much money whenever I go in there..plus there's a Sally's, Target, Kohls and Borders in the same shopping center, so it's dangerous for my Visa card

I've used CG friendly Suave and Aussie gels.

Thanks for your help-
