What organic products do 3B's use for shampoo, conditioner and styling?

Hello,
I love using organic, natural products that I can pronounce the ingredients and know what they are. I am currently using Alba Botanica So Smooth Gardenia Shampoo/Conditioner and the Gardenia Hawaiian Anti-Frizz Serum. What organic products do people with type 3 hair use? 
Can't wait for the info, thank you!
Chelsea

    Hi @ChelseaBee : I answered you on the thread you have in the All-Natural Hair Care section. But just thought I would mention that you might also think about what your hair properties are (hair width, porosity, density) to better refine what products and techniques will work for you hair. For example just because a product is all natural it might not work for your hair if say you are low porosity and the product is loaded up with protein.
    Low-poo: Alaffia Coffee & Shea Revitalizing Shampoo for Fine/Thin Hair (summer), Alaffia Coconut & Shea Hydrating Shampoo
    Clarify: Kinky Curly Come Clean
    Rinse-out: Alaffia Coffee & Shea Revitalizing Conditioner for Fine/Thin Hair (summer), Alaffia Everyday Coconut Ultra Hydrating Conditioner
    DT: Camille Rose Naturals Algae Renew Deep Conditioner
    Leave-in: As I Am Leave-in
    Styler: Lily of the Desert 99% Aloe Vera Gelly
    Treatment: Daily tea spray; Coconut oil overnight treatment; Citric acid rinse for hard water; 2-step Henndigo w/ amla to cover gray

    2C, fine, low porosity, low/medium density, protein sensitive

    I've tried, but my hair just doesn't like those all natural ingredients.  Flax seed gel - nope.  Aloe vera gel - nope.  Coconut oil - nope.  Any other kind of straight oil - nope.  I have to stick with regular products with loads of stuff in it for my hair to look even halfway decent.

    But I'm posting here to tell you about Kinky Curly Curling Custard.  Lots of people love it, and while I don't know if anything in it is "Organic" (with a capital O!), all the ingredients are natural.  Naturally my hair doesn't like it, but lots of people do!

    I use regular commercial products for my conditioners and gel but I do use organic/natural ingredients for other things - honey and vinegar rinses, herbal rinses, coconut oil pre-poo and deep treatment.

    Mkay, I use animal shampoo & conditioner.... Natural Animal Solutions is the brand I've had recently. Literally the ONLY shampoo/conditioner that had ingredients that I didn't need to google.
