Angry What is the most moisturizing, non-stripping shampoo you've used/ your fave poo?

Ladies,

I am looking for recommendations for a GOOD shampoo! My conditioner game is up to par, but my poo game leaves a lot to be desired. I have experimented with Motions (relaxed hair loved it, natural hair hated it), Mixed Silk (started out ok, but doesn't remove product well), Herbal Essence (not really impressed, stripped my hair), Yes to Carrots (it was ok, but not the greatest like their conditioner), Giovanni (stripped my hair) & Elucence (works ok, but I'm not in love) among countless others that I can't remember the names of.

I need a shampoo to use about once every 2 weeks that:
  • will leave my hair clean but not stripped/ feeling like hay;
  • is moisturizing...I don't want to spend the rest of the week trying to achieve moisture b/c of one shampoo session;
  • smells good (I don't want anything that smells like chemical or medicine).
Any recommendations??? I bought a sample of Joico Moisture Recovery Shampoo last night when I went to pick up the highly recommended Joico Moisture Recovery Balm for my deep conditioning this weekend. Anyone like Joice Moisture Recovery Shampoo???

I love conditioner...my hair LOVES conditioner...I barely use shampoo, but when I do, the results are not great. Trying to find a good shampoo! HELP!!!

Mixed chick's shampoo is nice. I shampooed once with Giovanni-smooth as silk and once with Mixed chicks, and although I will be using both up I do think I prefer the Mixed chicks over the Giovanni.

I may have to check out the Mixed Chicks poo. I like the leave-in and deep con, but I was scared to try the poo b/c MC is so expensive and I may not have liked it. Mixed Silk is not great, and the poo was ok, but now I'm not liking it either.

Thanks.

So far (and the only one I've used besides my clarifying which IS stripping,) it's Aveda Damage Remedy shampoo.

Nature's Gate Biotin Shampoo. It doesn't smell like anything, but it leaves my hair so soft. I think because it contains Silk Amino Acids and some other good stuff too.

I'm gonna have to go with the Babussu shampoo bar by anita grant.
It scentless but you can get scented ones as well. It's fab.

Creme of Nature (old bottle red or green label). I find them in the local beauty supply stores all of the time. I don't see them in chain stores.

Creme of Nature throwback formula, is the hands down champ.
♥ all Nature's Gate poos, sulfates and all. (Yeah, I said it.)
Contrary to what I expected from the reviews, Aubrey Organics HSR Shampoo is not stripping at all in my opinion, and actually pretty pleasant. (eta: HoneySuckle Rose shampoo smells like relaxer to me, which is why I'm not buying again.)

A good preshampoo is my fave solution for a stripping shampoo (of which I have many)...

Hands Down, Matrix Biolage Colorcaretherapie Delicate Care Shampoo

It foams very well, a little goes a long way, actually moisturizes, and is amazing. I find it on for $6.99 at TJ Maxx occassionally and buy it, but it retails for $13-$15. No sulfates.
Full review here:
http://www.fromshorttolong.com/2010/...x-biolage.html

Second place goes to Bee Mine Botanical Moisturizing Shampoo for $12.97
No Sulfates, silicone's, or parabens.

I've been using Elasta QP Creme Moisturizing Shampoo for the past 3 weeks. I really like it! It meets all of your requirements. And it's convenient, because it's right at Sally's.

CON green label has been the universal hands-down best poo on my hair, no matter what state it was in (relaxed, transitioning, texlaxed, natural). I see this "Olive Oil" SLS-free shampoo on the shelves in a green bottle...if they don't bring CON green label back, I'll be trying that. I only use diluted poo (1 half-dollar-sized dollop to 8 oz water), or oil-based shampoo bars.

I have bottles and bottles of SLS and ALS-laden poos...don't want to throw away, so I guess I will be diluting for the next 4 yrs to use that mess up.

@Diva_Esq

I have the Joico Moisture Recovery Shampoo, and it was just okay. I expected more of a smooth feeling to my hair, but I only used it once! Maybe I will give it another go and get better results...I was transitioning when I tried it, but maybe it will be diff on all natural hair.

Funny, I'm going to pick up the Moisture Recovery Balm this week too! Have the MR Cond. and it is very nice. I hear the MR Balm is the truth.

I have tried a few shampoos as well and I love Yes to Carrots..it cleanses my hair thoroughly without stripping and its safe for me to use weekly.
