What organic/all-natural products do people use for shampoo, conditioner and styling?

Hello,
I love using organic, all-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? 
(I also posed this question under the Hair T3 Forum) Can't wait for the info, thank you!
Chelsea

    Hi @ChelseaBee : I am a big fan of Alaffia, and you can see what products I use in my signature line. In addition, their Reishi line is pretty new, and I have liked almost all the products I tried from that line, including the hand/body lotion for hand cream, face cream, and Nourishing Conditioner. (The one exception is the "Cleansing Conditioner" cowash - it has no slip. But then I don't cowash either.) You can often buy them from Whole Foods, and return them if they don't work out. I think Alaffia is such a great company that their products are at least worth a try. You can read more about them on their website: https://alaffia.com/empowerment/

    In addition, I have also used:
    - Giovanni Shampoo/Conditioner: the 50/50 Balanced, Tea Tree, and Magnetic lines
    - I used to *love* Aubrey Organic, but they long ago changed.
    - I also used to love Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus, but then my hair changed I switched to Alaffia. Also, as of last year, it seems the company has also changed and it's possible the downturn in values seems to have affected the quality of their products.

    Some product lines I want to try are Eco Sevi, Curl Junkie, and Camille Rose Naturals. I heard about them here on Curltalk, and their products look really great. Maui Moisture and Not Your Mother's Naturals also look good and a little more affordable.

    A few "Salon Natural" brands I keep looking at but can't really afford right now are Briogeo, Intelligent Nutrients, Innersense Organics, maybe Yarok.

    I like using more natural products too. I like many of the Intelligent Nutrients products; I use the Harmonic poo and conditioner, because they give me volume and don't weigh down my fine hair. I also find their hairsprays good too, and the volumizing spray.

    Before my hair became protein sensitive, I used to love the Innersense Whipped Creme Texturizer.

    It really depends on what kind of effects you are looking for with your hair. Moisture, volume, curl definition...?

    I enjoy the Aubrey Organics line as well as Desert Essences.  I also sometimes do an intense olive oil treatment - easy and makes hair so nicely moisturized ...
