Need to find a new shampoo!! For Oily hair...

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive March 2007: Need to find a new shampoo!! For Oily hair...
By Mom2three1968 on Wednesday, February 28, 2007 - 09:05 am:

I've tried Pert plus, and currently I am using Herbal Essenses Drama Clean Shampoo and also conditioner, I don't use the conditioner on the top of my head so as not to make the problem worse! I wash my hair daily. I've also tried Clairifying shampoos. Right now my hair is flat and weighed down, does anyone have any shampoo's that they really like that I could try? I would be grateful for advice!!

Have you ever tried anything from Panteen? I really like this line. I have also been hearing good things about Sunsilk, but haven't tried it yet.

I find most store bought shampoos are too heavy for my hair. I'm spoiled because my best friend is a hairstylist and gets me salon products at her cost. I really like Paul Mitchell shampoos and conditioners. Back to Basics also has great products but they have discontinued several of my favorites.

Ugh! I have had oily hair and it is hard to find shampoo. They used to make this great one through Regis hair salons but discontinued it of course. I haven't tried Nexxus lately but my mom said that worked for me better than others before she had found the Regis shampoo. Herbal essence used to make my head itch, but they have revamped their line and I've been using one called Drama clean. I rotate my shampoos too, that seems to help.

I have oily hair, and I use Pantene.

By Debbie on Wednesday, February 28, 2007 - 09:59 am: you blow dry your hair?? I have a lot of hair, but it is very fine. My hairdresser showed me the right way to dry my hair to give it lots of body. You do it in sections. I wrap my hair around a big, round brush. I pull the brush up a little, and dry under, so the bottom is dried with the hair pulled up. Then, I move the dryer to the top of the brush, and guide it along the hair as I pull the brush through. I hope this make sense??? It adds volume, when you dry the underside up, but smooths it out, by drying the top down.

Ditto Trina. Store bought is way too heavy for me. I use salon products, and have been using Nioxin for a few years. It is expensive, but lasts a long time.

As Debbie said, blowdrying can make a difference. I don't think my hair is "truly" oily but it tends in that direction and I can really see a difference when I blow dry. If I let my hair air-dry (about 4 days a week), I have to wash it everyday. If I take the time to blow dry it well, I can get an extra day before I have to shampoo again. I use the Sunsilk shampoo and conditioner for fine hair because it doesn't weigh my hair down but I've had terrible luck with Pantene shampoos. In my experience, they are a very "heavy" shampoo and it leaves a buildup on my hair after a short time.

My hair is really thick, I do blow dry my hair I could try to see if blow drying it differently would help! I am going to try one of these shampoos that you all selected and see what happens. Thanks!!

Just doing an internet search here, has anyone tried any of the Aussie haircare products? The have one I saw called Cleanse and Mend, it's supposed to cleanse your scalp and moisturize your roots. Wondering if anyone has tried this one??

By Colette on Wednesday, February 28, 2007 - 06:49 pm:

the very best stuff I have found for my hair and skin is the Aveda products.

My little sister has really oily hair, and we started having her use baby shampoo. Works great.

By Hol on Thursday, March 1, 2007 - 10:59 pm:

Yes, baby shampoo is very drying. I also find Herbal Essence to be very drying.
