As for your shampoo search, why not purchase a bunch of sample or trial travel size shampoos at Sally's, Sephora, Whole Foods, etc... That way you don't have to invest too much money but can try a lot of different things and find something that suits your finicky hair!!! I know that Whole Foods carries a TON of travel size health and beauty items.

Good luck!
