Sulfate free shampoo

Hello, I'm in search for a new sulfate free shampoo. I cowash everyday and use a sulfate free once a week or once every week in a half depending. Currently I'm using yes to cucumbers shampoo and I really dislike it. It leaves my hair feeling gummy and coated with something. After I rinse my hair is a Beehive of knots. Ugh.

Looking for something hopefully drugstore or Sally's but doesn't have to be. Preferably no protein. (I do use Shea moisture moisture retention shampoo every once in a while)

    I find that sulfate free shampoos can be just as drying as a regular shampoo. IMO get a cheap clarifying shampoo. Be sure to deep condition after you clarify or use shampoo in general.

    I was just about to post the same thing, GreenCup! I have used Yes to Cucumbers but when I do use it I get no root curl and my hair feels nasty, too. It didn't used to give me so much trouble. Now after one use my hair feels gunky. I think it's the guar h. in it. Unfortunately if that is it, it's in a lot of other low-poos. I have used Renpure's coconut cream shampoo but IMO it feels just as stripping as sulfate. I'm really at a loss and I will be following this thread!

    PT: My hair needs very little. I use Suave Naturals Coconut when I need a little bit and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.

    And that's what I was wondering if they're all like that. The fact I'm not used to shampoos and mostly cowash hmmmm

    They are for me. I only shampoo once a month. On that day, I deep condition with heat.

    Hey I just remembered there's a list of mild shampoos on the Sciencey Hair Blog!
