Have you got a health food store or a Whole Foods in your area? Usually they have more of the "natural ingredient" shampoos.

I'm pretty sure I've seen some with just a few ingredients and without citric acid.

You can also order online from companies such as Lavera -- http://www.lavera.com/products.php?p=pr ... 4&parent=5

I'm not finding it, but if you hunt around on the site, I know I've found ingredients lists there before (or just call them). Lavera has very nice prods.

Is ascorbic acid the same as citric acid?

Not sure, but both can be derived from corn.
