Does anyone know if Pureology Color Safe Volume shampoo is CG friendly? It says "sulfate free" but I've read that this doesn't really mean anything. It is a very low-lather shampoo.... I am thinking of doind what another poster mentioned and start with 3 product... Deva Low Poo, Deva OneC and Deva strong hold gel and go from there. I think I am overwhelming myself ( and my hair) with all of these products and techniques.

Does anyone else have a 3 product suggestion (with a low-poo) I usually low-poo, co-wash, low-poo, co-wash....

    Do you have any idea of your hair properties? Mainly if it's fine, medium or coarse?

    Obviously you're open to pricey products....so I'll give you my two cents!

    If I could start CG all over again after all the money I've spent, I would start with Curl Junkie:

    Daily Fix as a co-wash (this has coco betaine, so is a hybrid between a cowash and low poo)
    Curl Rehab for a moisturizing conditioner (I use it as a rinse-out, can also be used as a leave-in)
    Gentle Cleansing Shampoo

    Other stellar products are the Smoothing Daily Conditioner (a lighter rinse out), and Repair Me (good to have around if you have fine hair and need a protein treatment).

    Curl Junkie and Curl Mart will both be having black Friday sales.

    Deva is a love/ hate line, although I do like the DevaCare low poo (but I don't love the scents of Deva products in general).

    CJ is more of a love/ love line.

    For low poos, I use and like DevaCare low poo, Jessicurl cleansing cream, CJ gentle cleansing, or Shea Moisture. Keep in mind I don't like a squeaky clean; all of these listed are VERY gentle, and do not make my hair feel stripped.

    I can't find the ingredients for pureology, so can't help you there.

    I generally don't tend to use all products from the same company either, but that's also why I'm particular about scents. They all need to work together. For some reason, the Deva stuff always clashes with everything else.
    2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
    Cleanse: AIA cowash, TJ Tea Tree Condish
    Condish: JC Too Shea, Tresemme Botanique
    Stylers: flax/okra gel or KCCC + CJ PP or JC Spiralicious
    Experimenting with Got2B Ultra gel and loving it so far!

    Thanks for the info Chloe!

    I have yet to make a signature line... Will do so soon! I have 2C/2B hair that is fine-medium and normal porosity (based on the strand test). I tried the deva no-poo and didn't like it, maybe I will try the CJ line.

    I tried the Deva line and really disliked it. One Condition seems to leave a sticky coating on my hair after the second or third use. After trying loads of products, I've settled on these few: low poo - Shea Moisture Yucca Shampoo or Wen 6/13. Co-wash - Tressme Naurals. Also use it as a RO occasionally. I generally rotate the products listed in my sig. I haven't tried Curl Junkie yet but only because its an online order and its easier to pick up something available locally.
    2b/2c ( weather permitting - 3a), fine texture but lots of it, colored and highlights, BSL.
    Experimenting w CG since Oct 2012

    Current rotation:
    cowash= TN
    AG Gel Mousse, LA Gel,
    DT = Coconut oil (love)

    Forgot to add: My hair dresser used Purology shampoo/condish on my last week when she did my color. She doesn't know much about curly hair and is using it on all her clients right now. I really liked it and it smells wonderful. I dont know if its CG and was going to research it as a possible addition to my line up when I need to restock.
