Aw shucks, I was going to suggest Rye Flour. It cleans, doesn’t strip my long and thick hair. If you MUST have a shampoo, I’d suggest a watered down one like Sulfate free Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner. Very nice.

I really like Shea Moisture shampoos. They’re advertised toward women of color, but they’re great for anyone looking for a gentle, moisturizing cleanser. I’m currently using the African water mint one and loving it. If you’re looking for something super moisturizing, their curl and shine shampoo is really nice too. But if you’re using styling products with lots of silicones, it might not be cleansing enough for you.

For reference, I’m white and have wavy (2b/2c) hair. But curly-hair products are made to be gentle and moisturizing, so they’re awesome.

Try J.R. Liggett’s shampoo bars. Very gentle and natural ingredients, plus they’re inexpensive. One bar lasts me a good 6 months or so. I found that I generally don’t need conditioner, but occasionally I’ll use a homemade ACV rinse afterwards for detangling.

I love any of the Enjoy shampoos and conditioners. I believe they are all sulfate free- I know the ones I have tried are. And they smell amazing! My favorite is the Luxury shampoo and conditioner

I like argan oil shampoo. I found one on amazon that I really love but did try a few until I found one I loved. I also use a argan oil treatment every few months.

I use DevaCurl shampoo and conditioner. All their products are sulfate, silicone, and paraben free. I have curly dry hair, but DevaCurl really helps my hair stay healthy

Personally, I can’t recommend DevaCurl shampoo. It makes my hair messy…

I, too, have some breakage. My hair is curly but thin and frizzes a lot.I have actually tried shea moisture shampoo and my hair is wavy/curly, and it works! I have to say, ive recently tried pantenes pro-v daily moisture renewal conditoner, and its actually really helping the repairing process in my hair! 🙂

Alaffia Everyday Shea is lovely, as is Acure’s argan oil shampoo. I’ve just recently started using a shampoo bar by Ethique for frizzy hair—it’s a little pricey but the bar lasts FOREVER. All of these smell amazing, too.
