I did the same thing and just invested in a clarifying shampoo. I bought one today called Giovanni 50:50 Clarifying-Hydrating Shampoo. It wasn't too expensive, and it's sulfate-free. I plan to use it maybe once a week. I read that if a shampoo dries your hair out, you can combine the shampoo and some oil (I'll use apricot) in a 1:1 ratio and use that so it doesn't strip as much. I'll try that soon
