greasy roots with no-poo

hey guys! firstly i wana say thank you to everyone for all the amazing info on this site! ive only just registered but have been following CG routine for almost 8 weeks. my hair has been the best i have ever seen... i didnt think it was possible. it used to be all over the place, fluffy, curls not defined... now it looks amazing!
the only problem has been i have very greasy roots. my hairdresser said it doesn't look healthy, and it could spread down. i've tried lemon and ACV rinses, helped a little but not significantly.
i am thinking of going mod-CG with a low-poo. i've jsut bought this shampoo but i'm not sure about the ingredients. could someone check it over?

tara smith big baby gentle shampoo
ingredients: Aqua, Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glyceryl Laurate, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Ricinoleamidopropyltrimonium Methosulfate, Parfum, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Bisabolol, Panthenol, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Benzyl Alcohol, Limonene, Linalool.

i am a UK girl so if anyone knows of any other recommendations for low-poos i can buy in the stores here, that would be great!

    Looks good to me. I don't see any sulfates or silicones. The cocomidopropyl betaine should get rid of the greasiness.
