    Shampoo-less means using conditioner instead of shampoo (co-wash). V05 and Suave Naturals conditioners are popular around here for co-washes.

    Have you decided on other products yet? This post can help you with finding what your hair needs, and you can decided which products are best from there.

    Do you mean that you want a co-wash conditioner or a sulfate free shampoo?
    I like Burt Bee's for a sulfate free shampoo, some people prefer shampoo bars. For a good co-wash I like Garnier Fructis 'body and volume' for a co-wash. But all this depends on your hair type, what works for one person may not work for another. Good luck!

    Would love to read more suggestions on sulphate-free shampoos available in drugstores not health food stores...

    Target carries the Giovanni line - they have some good low-poos. Walgreens also carries BioInfusion shampoo, which I believe is a low-poo (it's been a while since I looked!).
