Safe Shampoo?

Today was my first day trying CO, and while my hair isn't as shiny as usual, it's super curly. I think I'm going to like this.

While I was shopping for CG supplies, I found a shampoo that didn't have sodium lauryl sulfate/laureth sulfate/ammonium laureth sulfate. So does that make it an ok shampoo to use every once in awhile?

    I'd definitley find more out about the Sodium coco-sulfate.

    I'm very curious abou this one, too.

    My hair has become one lengthy science experiment since I started this curly thing, and I'm thinking of giving occasional 'poo a shot, but I'm wanting something gentle, to be sure.

    I came very close to buying this at walgreens today because they had trial sizes, but I decided I'd check here, first.

    Any other opinions on this shampoo? Or any recommendations for a gentle kind of cleanser? (I've been reluctant to try salon ones because of cost, even though this one isn't that cheap, either...but I still have that prejudice...so if cheap is possible, too, that would help...)

    I grabbed the trial size shampoo and conditioner.

    I used the conditioner today and it felt really cool. Very tingly. I can't tell you what it did for my hair as far as curls go, cause I tried plopping for the first time. Man, that did not work out.

    Sodium Coco Sulfate is a naturally derived alternative to Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in flake form. Sodium Coco Sulfate is derived from pure coconut oil. It can be used in a wide variety of personal care applications in which viscosity building and foam characteristics are of importance. The product formulates similar to synthetic alkyl sulfates, but is less defatting to the hair and skin. SCS being less soluble than synthetic alkyl sulfates leaves the skin and hair with a conditioned feel. It can be incorporated into shampoos, hand soaps, bath products, shaving creams and medicated ointments. It is especially useful for opaque, pearlescent, or cream products.

    So my interpretation is - this is not good. But would like more input.

    I'd say the same, but I just don't get how something from a coconut could ever be harsh. I use coconut oil on my hair.
