Low poo recommendations?

I'm looking for a good low-poo that will get my hair clean and leave it not weighed down but also not try. I tried the L'Oreal Eversleek and it leaves my hair a bit too dry. Then I saw the Nature's Gate Biotin Shampoo while I was in GNC looking for something and picked it up but... I just can't take the smell anymore. It has a very minty, herbal smell (for anyone that hasn't tried it) and as strange as this sounds, it gives me flashbacks to when I was sexually assaulted a couple of years back by some random guy with very minty, herbal smelling hair. Otherwise it seems to work pretty well for me but in the shower this morning I decided to switch shampoos because I can't deal with the flashbacks every time I shower anymore.

So I'm looking for a new low-poo that doesn't smell minty and herbal I guess! I thought about maybe trying the SheaMoisture shampoos (one of them) but I read somewhere on here that they aren't much more cleansing than cowashing and I'm not sure that won't leave my hair weighed down after a couple of washes. My hair always seems to be one wash away from dry and frizzy or weighed down, limp and lifeless. :banghead:

Appreciate any suggestions!

    Does this need to be something you can find on the ground?

    I like Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo, which you can get in various scents, none of them minty or herbal.
    Peace,

    Oh, I guess I should have included whether or not I need to be able to find it on the ground!

    No it doesn't matter really. If I can find it somewhere with free (or at least cheap) shipping that is a definite plus. I'm fine ordering on-line.

    I haven't really looked into the Giovanni shampoos. I have the SAS conditioner and I generally like it. I think I saw one of 2 of the shampoos at Marshall's when I got it. Maybe I should check if any of the shampoos are still there.

    I'll definitely look into the Jessicurl also.
