Default Anti-static spray and clean rinsing shampoo?

First, what would you guys recommend for an anti-static spray for scissoring? Do these sprays even help with that? ...Can I also use it on my own hair?! I'm not interested in CC and really expensive products. It's just not in my budget and I'm not showing dogs or anything to justify the price.

Secondly, we have relatively soft, acidic water and weak water pressure. I've come up with a system to get as much water flow as possible but the softness seems to make rinsing away all the shampoo tricky and I sometimes get a powdery finish because it's not all gone. I know I can do a vinegar rinse but don't really like the smell. So, what's a good hypo-allergenic AND tear-free shampoo that rinses clean very well that dilutes for a recirc system? I was told Espree and I like that it's not too expensive and that it dilutes for my recirculating system (I don't recirculate the rinse water, I always use clean). But I'm also open to other ideas. I'm not interested in spending over $35 a gallon. So CC shampoos and the like are out.

One last question, so I was looking at hypo/tearfree shampoos and some of them have soy protein in them. How is that hypo when it seems that many dogs are allergic to soy?

Ok I'm probably not much help but since noone else's answered here's my 2cw, since we don't have nearly the range available down here as you guys over there, I'm more open to trying different things and one thing I've learnt is any decent conditioner watered down to almost nothing can make a good grooming spray, maybe try pantenes no frizz or something like that.
As for shampoo have a look for hydrosurge type shampoos they tend to be low residue, I have water issues too and I love groomers edge ultimate which rinses really clean but it's not hypoallergenic although it is tear free (i've had it sprayed in my face many times by shaking dogs).
You'll never find a hypo that no dogs react to as so many dogs have different triggers, a few years ago aloe based shampoos were very popular as they were great for generally sensitive dogs however about one dog in a hundred is allergic to aloe itself and can have a very bad reaction to the shampoo.

Default shampoo

I just tried Animology shampoo (available through Frank Rowe and Son) and loved it! But it is more than $35. B3 Why Itch is easy to rinse as well, but again not cheap (but dilutes down great). I haven't found anything I like for under $35-40 gallon. If you want to stick with your current shampoo and use a different rinse... Results Rinse by Showseasons works along the same lines as a vinegar rinse... but not a vinegar smell... plus helps with making the hair nice and crisp to scissor.
