    Poos(sulfate or sulfate free) and conditioners for now. Thanks!

    Do you do pre-poos? If not I'd definitely recommend that.

    For shampoos the only one I've used since going CG is the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus one in my signature, which I LOVE. It's super moisturising, but also really cleanses, so my hair always feels clean and fresh. Plus it's super CG friendly (the ingredients are AMAZING).

    I know some people have problems with build-up with SM, if they have finer hair though, but looking at your properties I don't think it'd be a problem :).

    I've never tried them myself, but I know others have gotten on well with Deva Curl products (they can be quite pricey though!).

    As for conditioners, I use the SM Restorative and really like it. Again, CG friendly, it also has great slip and a little goes a long way. Really moisturising, but doesn't weigh down my hair (I do baptism rinses with it and have never had an issue with my curls being weighed down).

    A lot of people also like KCKT for conditioning. I haven't tried that yet, but I have ordered it and plan to use it as a leave-in :)

    I'm sure a bunch of the other girls will have tons more recommendations for you too!

    Thanks! I do actually have all those products that you are mentioned.

    I don't find the KCNT to be moisturizing but used as a leave in it does help when wetting the hair the next day as far as detangling.

    With the Shea Moisture stuff I notice alot of frizz. Not any softness.

    I have used the Deva stuff but don't like it as much as the old formulas. I loved the old formula of Devacurl One Condition and SIF.

    I am looking for softness for my coarse strands.
