Extra Gentle Shampoo / Conditioners for Color Treated Hair?

Is there an extra gentle, natural, or super-mild hair care product that I can use to wash my hair when it needs it?

Looking for recommendations of natural or very mild hair products, especially for color treated hair. I have fairly sensitive skin, and am looking for the least irritating, friendliest shampoo and conditioner out there. I know that Cetaphil is a good gentle skin cleanser, is there a hair-care equivalent? I have been trying to wash my hair less often, and average about every other day, but when I do need to wash, what’s the least harmful shampoo to use?
In my mind, extra gentle = safe for color treated hair, but I know that just because a shampoo is safe for colored hair it’s not necessarily going to prevent any fading or loss of color. Having read through the shampoo questions posted previously, I know there are a great number of people who dye their hair, a good number who wash their hair infrequently, and at least a few out there with sensitive skin. The other threads don’t really address all three issues, so I hope it’s okay to combine them and ask for recommendations.
I’d appreciate any information people have on extending the longevity of hair color as well.
Thanks in advance!
