Help for newbie! UK clarifying shampoo.

Hi all curlies!

Going to be trying no-poo in the next couple of weeks - had a look here but can't seem to find the answer to my query.

Can anyone in the UK recommend a good clarifying shampoo before I jump in and have a go at the CG method. I have the book but can only seem to find info about clarifying once using the method.

Currently using Tresemme Thermal Recovery Shampoo and Tresemme Remoisturising Conditioner and John Frieda Frizz Ease serum.

Any answers appreciated so in advance - thank you!!!!!!!!!!! :p

    I used the brand Naked from Boots - the one that's called Naked Detox is a clarifying one! Worked a charm. Not very expensive either.

    I have just bought the Noughty Detox Dynamite clarifying shampoo from boots. I hear it's good and CG friendly!x

    @sianb86 Let us know what you think after you've tried it! In general, Boots makes pretty good products, don't they?
