No-poo method doesn't seem to work for me..

At first, I only washed with conditioner. It didn't feel good at all, but I tried bearing with it for a few weeks but nothing is happening, still my ol' frizz-full stack of hay lying on my head. I was over the once-a-week-shampooing. I tried to wash my hair everyday with a sulfate-free shampoo along with the conditioner, the first few days it felt nice on my hair, smooth but my curls aren't "set". After ONLY a few days, my hair was back to its old self again. After months of bearing the hope of having a perfect hair, I just gave up. I went back to cones and sulfates.

The thing is, my prev shampoo and conditioner is "all natural". No chemicals, which is supposed to be good, right? But it feels terrible on my hair. It just leaves my hair dry, frizzy and poofy. My hair was just all over the place and unmanageable. Not to mention the horrendous odour it gives off. It has citrus fragrance but it wont stay in your hair. Like, after showering your hair will smell gross. Especially when I sweat, I just feel ashamed because my hair stinks.

So I switched to L'Oreal Nutri-Gloss. The first few days, my hair felt amazing, I just loved it. It was soft and I liked how my curls curled. But just like my old shampoo, my hair started to not like my current shampoo. My hair is starting to dry out and hard to manage. And the curls aren't as pretty.

HELP ME FIND A NEW SHAMPOO. But the shampoos here in my country are limited, unlike in the US.
We really need to know your hair properties to know what to suggest. If you do not know them, see this link:

Also, what products have you used? It sounds like you might have protein overload. That could be a possibility.

Last, have you clarify to rid your hair of the cones an any build up? Even a simple BS/ACV rinse will clarify well.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
And what country are you in? Maybe someone from your country can suggest something for you.
2b/c wavy modified CG since July 2012
medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
hair likes protein, doesn't like oils, easily OC'd

low poo: JCHCC, CJGCS
RO/co-wash/LI: YTCarrots, DB Pumpkin Seed
stylers: a bunch of stylers that are all pretty much the same (KCCC, UFDCM, CRCM, CKCJ) or ArcAngel if I need more hold
Maybe shampooing every day is much for your hair. It would dry me out for sure. I only shampoo once or twice a week and i have to dc after to restore the moisture You said you didn't like once a week. Maybe there is a happy medium between that and shampooing every day.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
