Needing new cleanser, that won't make hair flat..

Ok, the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Come-Clean-Moisturizing-Shampoo-p-844.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Kinky-Curly-Come-Clean-Moisturizing-Shampoo]KC Come Clean[/buylink] was too much to use every week, the conditioners have been making my head break out and my hair greasy looking and flat, the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream[/buylink] is too heavy, and have tried the DevaCare Low Poo, all to no avail. I need a gentle cleanser that I can use about twice a week, that will clean but not strip, and won't make my hair overconditioned, flat and/or greasy. Anybody got anything that they think might help? Thanks!

    I'm also thick, elastic and porous, and have trouble co washing weighing my hair down. For the last month I've been using curl junkie cleansing conditioner and have been having the best hair days since going CG. This cleanser not only cleans well but provides a great base for my other products. Since using this cleanser I low poo about every 10 days instead of every 5. Love love this stuff

    Try aquage silkening shampoo. Sulfate free and much less drying than other cleansers.
