    I haven't tried either, but the Organix TTM shampoo helps lots of people with scalp issues like dry scalp, flaking, dandruff, and things like that. If that's something you'd like your shampoo to do, I'd go for that one! I will say that I have an Organix shampoo, though, (the Shea Butter one) and it leaves a waxy or coated feeling on my hair through the drying process. After my hair dries, it still feels kinda greasy or waxy if I didn't rinse super well in the shower. I'm not sure if all of them feel this way, though -- this is my first sulfate-free shampoo.
    Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.

    Low poo: Organix TTM, Essential Wholesale Free & Clean
    Stylers: EcoStylers, GF Curl Shaping Gel, Aussie Aussome Volume Mousse & Instant Freeze Gel, GFPC, LALNC, La Bella Lots of Curls, Apricot Oil, KMFUM, AO B5DG
    Extras: sugar scrubs, AVG washes, pre-poos with EVCO, oiling scalp before washes, plopping, gelatin PT.

    If you are referring to loreal's everpure line, proceed with caution. BOTH have several silicones in them. Though, last time I checked, the newer lines seem to have less, but they are still there!
    2b waves

    Poor Elasticity
    Low Porosity??? (New to this and experimenting)
    Medium/coarse texture

    Thick density

    Another one to consider is Giovanni Tea Tree shampoo. (I understand that Trader Joe's Tea Tree shampoo is considered equivalent.)

    Baby Fine 3B, low porosity, normal density and elasticity

    I tell everybody with curly/wavy hair I know to use Redken Fresh Curls, I don't think those shampoos you're talking about would do much for you.
    :love2: as of 6/12/11.

    COwash- Suave Juicy Apple.
    Rinse-out- VO5 Passion Fruit Moisture Milks.

    I just started to NoPoo routine a week ago.. unbelieveable results already!! I can't even believe it! I got the whole Deva line.. NoPoo, One Condition and the Angel Gel for scrunching... My hair started out a little fuzzy but I heard that's normal for the first couple of weeks.. but now it's finally starting to look really good.. my curls are finally coming back and not looking so frizzy! Good luck girl.. it'll be worth it!
