Rinse Out

How do you find one!?

I spent probably a few hours in a few stores over the past few days trying to find something to use because it seems cowash isn't enough moisture for me (first day was a bit crunchy because I didn't rinse enough, second was dry with a little more rinsing... can't find a middle).

It seems that nearly every item I looked at had a silicone of some sort or cost more than $10 for a small bottle. It seems nearly everything has Dimethicone (or something like that) and sulfates are way over drying and I don't believe a sulfate-free shampoo can clean that out.

And are Chlorides bad? I see a lot of those too. It's like I need to carry a dictionary with me or something. I go the Curly Girl book but it doesn't seem to cover every ingredient.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've yet to find V05 anywhere local. I was at Walgreens today getting meds for my son (early ear infection) and they had a few brands I'd never heard of before w/o silicone but none of those you've suggested.

    I saw the Suave Rosemary & Mint that I've heard of before, but I wasn't sure of some of the ingredients.

    Hubs is anti-Walmart but I think that's where I need to go to find a good rinse out.
