Do you ladies have recommendations for sulfate-free shampoo that won't burn a hole in my pocket?

I have long hair, but the problem is that it always looks so weighed down and I am guessing because of the build up in my hair. Please let me know if I am wrong.

My hair has changed drastically from how it used to be. I still have fairly thick hair, but it gets oily within 2 days after washing it. Sometimes 1 1/2 days it will be oily and it is unbearable. So what I am hoping is that the sulfate-free shampoo/conditioner will help me out with the oilyness and give me some volume! :smile:

Thanks in Advance

The opposite for most people actually. People complain that sulfate free doesn't lift dirt and oil as the sudsy sulfate kind.
Do you use a clarifier every week or 2? This removes build up from water and products.

That said, I like the Coppolla sulfate free line, but it doesn't clean better than anything else. I only use it when I have a recent Brazilian Blowout.

It sounds like your hair has gotten used to (too?) regular washes.
I would advice you to use as little shampoo as possible, because shampoo dries out the hair and scalp and it makes your scalp produce grease more quickly to restore a protective layer. I used to put shampoo in twice everytime I showered because I also have long, thick hair, but once works just as well, and doesn't dry my hair out as much.
Some people, mainly hippies, don't use shampoo at all, but I don't think I could do that :lol:

Have you ever tried using dry shampoo? It freshes up your hair between washes and it adds volume! I use it to make the "waiting time" more bearable, because I wash my hair twice a week max.

I like that one pretty well too, except it makes mine feel oily earlier than my others.
