Does this look like a good lowpoo for mod cg? :)

Hi :) So a few years back I started the full cg method and my hair didn't really look too much better than when I was using silicone products and sulfates, however, it does feel healthier and more moisturized.

Anyway, I decided to try mod cg since my hair looks good when I use amodimethicone and other mild cones, and use coco betaine instead of SLS since the SLS always makes my hair feel so stripped and gross beyond anything a DT can fix. Do these ingredients sound good for it? It's a baby shampoo by the way, Walmart brand.

Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, PEG-150 Distearate, Fragrance, Polyquaternium-10, Tetrasodium EDTA, Quaternium-15, Citric Acid, Yellow 10, Orange 4.

    Hmmm...baby shampoos can actually be pretty drying. I dilute my shampoo with oil (coconut) and it really helps. Shampoo doesn't strip my hair anymore :mrgreen:

    You could probably use olive oil, too, or a really moisturizing conditioner to mix with it.
