Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo

I've been using Organix for a couple months now and it's OK. Just ok. And I'm worried about the ingredients too, it says Sulfate free but I think I found a sulfate in it, AND it has cones in it.

What are some more curly girl friendly shampoos?

    Some curly girl friendly shampoos that I can think of at the top of my head and are pretty easy to find on ground are: the Yes to products (Carrots, Cucumbers, blueberries, etc). Giovanni products as well (sometimes I use Tea tree triple treat but some say it is rather heavy). Also Curls makes a cleansing conditioner which has cocomidropyl betaine, so it's very effective at cleaning. Shea moisture makes a few shampoos, I can't remember all, but one kind is in the coconut and hibiscus line along with many others. For now, that is all I can think of on the top of my head, but there are manyyyyy more.

    That Organix is not CG friendly - no sulphate surfactants but a couple of silicones (dimethicone, amodimethicone).

    Some reasons you may not be impressed: olefin sulfonates are pretty harsh, its laden with polyquats that can build up for some (inc. guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride), contains hydrolysed protein which many just don't need on virgin roots.
    2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
    Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
    Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
    Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
