CG-Friendly Products List!!

RimiRimi Posts: 2,001Registered Users
LAST UPDATED: 7/12/14

This is a list of the commonly used products amongst wavies, curlies and kinkies. The other lists that have been started are quite outdated, so I thought I'd begin this one. I obviously didn't include everything, so leave a comment below if you think I need to add something or take something out!

KEY
Shampoos are sulfate free.
Gels are (drying) alcohol free.
All products are free of non-water soluble 'cones.
Water-soluble cones = WSC
Parabens = P
Heavy protein(s) or protein(s) high on the ingredients list = PH
At least 95% natural OR organic = green
Pricier products (>$2/oz.) = bold

NOTE: Some multi-purpose products will overlap in certain categories.

CG-Friendly Product Lines *Please note: A line may be marked as "pricey" (i.e., bolded) if ~50% or more of the products in the line cost more than $2/oz.*

    This is awesome! Thank you for doing this. I don't see any of the Shea Moisture stuff.

    Shampoo:
    Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
    Shea Moisture Organic Shea Butter Curl & Shine Shampoo Coconut & Hibiscus (PH)
    Shea Moisture Organic African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo
    (I didn't realize Shea Moisture made a flaking/itching shampoo with tea tree oil, and now I'm super excited to try it. :D Just, yes.)

    Rinse Out:
    Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Restorative Condition
    Shea Moisture Organic Yucca & Baobab Volumizing Conditioner Yucca & Baobab (PH)

    Deep Condish:
    Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Hair Masque

    Other:
    Shea Moisture Organic Hair Thickening Growth Milk Yucca & Aloe

    Shea Moisture Organic Curl & Style Hair Milk Coconut & Hibiscus (PH)
    Shea Moisture Yucca & Baobab Thickening Moisture Mist (PH) (This has a alcohol I don't know anything about?)

    I know the mists aren't that popular, so you can take or leave those. I hope that helps, overall, though. You can review them if you want, because I might be mistaken.
    Fine Texture, Normal Porosity, Normal Elasticity. Dyed to brown a few months ago.
    Lowpoo: Trader Joe's TTT Shampoo
    Rinse Out:
    Yes to Carrots, AOHR, Aubrey Organics Rosemary Peppermint

    Thanks so much for this very helpful list!

    You should include the L'Oreal EverCreme products - most are CG, and I've been liking them a lot so far.

    Also, maybe the mods can make this a sticky?

    Wondering about Mixed Chicks? I see they have two different shampoos:

    Mixed Chicks Shampoo
    Mixed Chicks Sulfate Free Shampoo

    TIA for the product list! That would confirm that my last few days of heavy researching for some product that would also be friendly on my wallet. I have been eyeing the Shea Moisture line the last few days.
    2B/2C , medium, ii/iii
    low porosity | medium/high density | low elasticity | shoulder length | dry climate | hard water | low dew points

    Experimenting:
    Wash: DC Low-Poo
    Conditioner: GVPCB RO
    DT: GVP K-Pak
    Leave In: n/a (searching)
    Style: Biotera Curl Creme, air-dry and/or diffuser

    CG since October 2012
    Current issue: Frizzy hair! Lazy curls (this has gotten better, but getting there)! Hair does not like glycerin.
  • SVaultSVault Posts: 35Registered Users
    I tried both..The sulfate shampoo dried my hair and the sulfate free felt like watery glue on my fingers..Hated it..The deep conditioner is the best one for my 2A/2C hair, though
