What are some good non-sulfate shampoos for super dry hair?

My hair is super dry and it's curly. I don't wanna use any Sodium Lauryl Sulfate-based Shampoos. I am on a budget too and don't wanna pay like 20-30 bucks on shampoo and condition for my hair.
Any good shampoos and conditioners that fit this description?

  • Loreal makes a sulfate free shampoo now. It's about 8 a bottle but it smells great and seems to work well on my hair. They have an Everpure moisture for dry hair. I use the everstrong reconstruct for mine.

  • White Sands, Miracle Ten(expensive but won't be buying shampoo for 4 months!)Kenra, Biolage.
    See you can spend your $$ at the drug store every month and be unhappy or just buy the decent stuff every few months. It's concentrated, lasts longer, works better, and when you do the math adds up to the same amount you are spending on all the stuff you have to keep buying over and over again.

  • BTW, little free product knowledge, Loreal, Pantene, and Clariol all use cheap wax fillers, so you are only getting a tiny bit of the good stuff.

  • Bed Head and Chi both make on. I have tried the Chi and it did ok but I haven't tried Bed Head. They range from $9-18 for the shampoo. Conditioners don't normally have sulfates...only shampoo so any will work.

    Stay away from the color care ones as they still have sulfates in them.
