color-safe shampoos

What makes a shampoo/conditioner safe for color-treated hair?

It seems like many of the low-poos do not specify that they are color-safe.

Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density

    You could try the L'Oreal EverPure line. Their shampoos are sulfate free, and most of the products are specifically for color-treated hair.
    Curl Type: 2c-3a, Medium thickness, Normal Porosity
    Weekly Low-poo: TJ Pure Castile Soap
    Co-wash: V05 Strawberries and Cream
    Conditioner: GVP Conditioning Balm (Possibly HG!), GF Triple Nutrition
    Styling Products: CK, Re:coil, JCRR, JCCC, LALMHG, EcoStyler, SMU Spray Gel, Boots

    Life has many choices. Eternity has two. What's yours?

    If you are using Color by RC, you'll want to be careful not to use shampoos or products with a high oil content, this can strip fresh color. I have used [buylink=]Jessicurl's HCC[/buylink] and GLS a week or so later, and it's OK, but not soon after coloring. I would recommend the GLS since it has less oils (using up my HCC first).
