Sodium Laureth Sulphate is terrible for wavy or curly hair. If you cut out silicones in conditioner you don't need sulfates to wash them out. So, I would try a sulfate-free shampoo and silicone-free conditioner together.
I invest time in my hair once or twice a week then it takes care of itself the rest of the time! Wash/good conditioner mask then blow dry and straighten - takes a good hour from washing to finish. Then in the morning, and following morning, it's needs a quick 2 mins with the straighteners and a scoosh of dry shampoo, if needed. If I curl it with straighteners in the morning (pretty quick to do once you get the hang of it) the next day it still has a wavy kink that's nice in a pony tail. I couldn't be bothered washing/styling and using products every day. But it's pretty thick so get away with not washing everyday!
