Your Favorite Clarifying Shampoo?

So, after my accidental silicone exposure, I used up the rest of a sample of Klorane for blondes shampoo. That stuff is clarifying, like super-hyper-uber-be-very-sure-of-your-need-to-clarify clarifying. It's also expensive, so I'd like to replace it with something cheaper, since I'll only be using it occasionally.

Does anybody have a recommendation for a super clarifying, but not terribly expensive shampoo?

TIA!

    I picked up the Tresemme Botanique shampoo along with the conditioner (i use it as a leave in during high dews). Its clear and quite sudsy as it does have sodium laurETH sulfate in it... but it has a lot of good ingredients too. I've only used it twice but it didn't seem to dry my hair out at all. Got my bounce back. I did mix it with a low poo I have by Boucleme, just to be safe. For the money, I think its pretty good. On its own I think it would be very clarifying but not stripping. I also just read that the same Botanique line has a Detox and Restore shampoo.
    Here are the ingredients:
    Aqua (Water),Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Cocamidopropyl Betaine,Sodium Chloride,Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice Powder,Citric Acid,Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract,Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil,Disodium EDTA,Glycerin,Isopropyl Alcohol,Lactic Acid,Parfum (Fragrance),Pentylene Glycol,Polyquaternium-10,PPG-12,Propylene Glycol,Sine Adipe Lac (Nonfat Dry Milk),Sodium Acetate,Sodium Benzoate,Sodium Hydroxide,Coumarin,Linalool

    A low poo I got recently and really like is the Zatik Olive and Black Seed Shampoo which doesn't have any sulfates but did a great job cleansing. Really good stuff in this. The ingredients:water (aqua), decyl glucoside (natural cleanser), sodium oliveoyl/cocoyl aminoacids fructosides, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, nigella sativa (black cumin seed) oil*, ricinus communis (castor) oil*, potassium olivoyl PCA, hydroxyethyl cellulose, hectorite, anthemis nobilis (chamomile flower) extract*, erythritol*, gluconodeltalactone, bambusa vulgaris (bamoo) extract, potassium sorbate, dl-pantenol (vitamin B5), ocimum basilicum (sweet basil) oil*, citral, tocopherol (sunflower isolated vitamin E), boswellia carterii (frankincense) fragrance*, citric acid *USDA Certified Organic

    Thanks! The Klorane is a little too much, but I definitely need a clarifying shampoo occasionally.

    My favorite is Redken Cleansing Cream. I got mine on sale at Ulta for $16 for 33oz. But I look at it as a serious investment because I have lots of gray hair, hard water + a pool. I don't use sulfate shampoo's but if I am going to clarify I at least try to make it the most powerful and yet the most gentle as possible. :)

    Thank you! I'm letting my grey come in, so I am always glad to talk to silver/grey/white curlies.

    I'm salt & pepper, and once a month or so I clarify with a purple shampoo. Right now I'm using one from Sally's. It's not CG, but I get paranoid about my grays turning yellow so I do it for that reason. You could do the same and get a double whammy. Purple shampoo is also for blondes.

    Does anyone know if there is such thing as a hard water friendly co wash?
