    I use a mix and match of products. For my shampoo & conditioner, I'm currently using L'Oreal's VIVE Smooth-Intense. For styling products, I usually put a small amoutn of Redken's Outshine in my damp hair, then a tiny bit of Suave Professionals version of Paul Mitchell's sculpting foam just at the roots. After I dry my hair, I add a little of Redken's Glass for a little extra shine and to tame the fly-aways. Then I spray with Suave Professionals version of some Paul Mitchell hairspray.

    Sounds gross but its great to use vinegar in your hair once a week to strip your hair strands from the buildup of shampoos, it works and makes your hair feel amazing....Also you can use Dawn dishsoap.

    Mane 'N Tail. You can usually find it on drugstore shelves, and occasionally the markets. There's a shampoo and conditioner. The conditioner may suggest a leave-in, but that leaves things too greasy, so use it as a rinse. Makes hair SOOOOO soft and healthy!
    Leaving the conditioner in really works great on horses, though. My little Quarter Horse used to have a tail longer than he was tall! The Arabian owners were jealous (he lived at a boarding stable with a bunch of show Arabs).

    I wrote this big long post about the wonderful things that are a big help to dry hair, till I noticed the original poster was asking about oily hair. Oops.

    I can't be much help in the oily-hair arena, since my hair's naturally curly and I process it quite a bit (straightening, highlights, etc). So it tends toward dry. I know every trick in the book to whip dry hair back into shape, but I haven't had oily hair since I was a kid.

    I did find an article that listed (seemingly) good ways to keep the oil under control, but it didn't list any specific products, just home remedies.

    It may be the case with other products but as far as American Crew goes it's 100% the same stuff. Is it legal for Target to be selling it? Maybe, maybe not. Basically Target is getting it from a distributor who actually shouldn't be selling it to Target in the first place.

    American Crew says they won't guarantee it because it's not purchased in a salon but the fact is it's really the same stuff. Anyway, I don't use it anymore it made my hair so flat.

    I go back and forth between Loreal Color Vive Shine(smells so good)and Color Vive. I LOVE Fructis's 3 minute hair masque, my hair feels sooo nice afterwards! I use Infusium leave in off and on and I like brilliant brunette simply sleek and Bed Head for shine(smells soooooo good) Fructis for hair spray.

    I tried mamabot's Redken last year and it didn't work out at all for me, it dried my scalp out so bad and it was so itchy!

    Ry uses that also. I love the way it turns his hair into, well, cement. I can sneak things into his hair and him never know he's walking around with pieces of paper sitting on his head...

    Oh, yeah, this thread isn't about how to be an annoying girlfriend, is it.

    I prefer Catwalk's "Sexed Up" shampoo and conditioner and Redken hairsprays/gels. I also like Paul Mitchell mousse... but lately I've been using various products by Aussie. Love the scent and seem to get the job done.. just not AS good, but good enough.

    I use Rubber Spiking Cement from Got2Be. It makes my hair spikey and stiff without hair spray plus, I can wear it wet or dry look. Shampoo I use Pantene Pro V and every once in a while I will use a build up remover (from all that glue )

    I used to spend a ton on hair products now I really could care less. Target dose sell Crew they have been for some time now, still about 11.00 for a small jar.

    Neutrogena has a daily Shampoo and Conditioner , not just the Anti-Residue Formula.

    When I am wealthy, I use Bumble and Bumble Curl shampoo, conditioner and curl cream. I absolutely adore it. It keep my hair tanagle free, and keeps the curls together and not as frizzy mess (my grey hair is completely frizzy!).

    When I'm less wealthy I used Tresemme Shampoo - but I'm still looking for a conditioner and curl cream that will mimic the B&B stuff. Redkin doesn't work at all. I got a Catwalk Curl Up creme yesterday to try and I've been trying out conditioners here and there with no luck. So, I'm no help.

    I do know that Neutrogena is great to use about once a week to remove excess buildup of product in your hair, but more than that can be damaging - expecially if your hair is colored.

    We have been using Neutrogena on the kids for as long as I can remember. It didn't do anything for my colored hair, but it is the only thing that keeps Ali's hair gorgeous and manageable.

    And I chickened out on the Alterna at the Beauty Supply Store yesterday. Bought the economy (yeah right) size of the Redken Color Extend Shampoo & Conditioner. My hair is happy again.

    I just- today- bought the Pantene for Brunette's Shampoo and Conditioner. I often use Pantene, just never this kind. I will try it and see it I like it. Pantene is about the cheapest thing I can use on my hair. My hair is VERY thick and curly and tends to dry out. So I have to use a decent conditioner. It makes sense what someone said earlier about Pantene having Wax in it. My hair being so dry and wild, wax probably helps smooth it out and weigh it down.

    I will have to try Neutrogena sometime. I LOVE their other products. Maybe next time!

    I change off shampoos and conditioners (my favorite conditioner is actually Fantastic Sam's hydrating conditioner). If your hair is oily, I'm not sure if this conditioner would help, but it really makes my hair soft. But, the best stuff I have ever used is Redken's Extreme Anti-Snap leave in conditioner. This stuff is great. It helps make your hair more elastic and keeps your hair from splitting and breaking from combing and brushing. I have longer hair and it has made a huge difference .

    I love John Frieda's Brillent Brunette, It keeps my hair shiney, bouncy and looking really nice (it smells good too) That is also the only brand of product that I will ever put in my hair, not too heavy or greasy.

    but I also alternate with Herbal Essence, all the same reasons as the other.

    I know what you mean, NN. I've tried Fructese as well. I LOVE the smell, but it's just ok. I made the mistake of also getting the Sleek and Shiny. Bad idea. It made my hair way greasy.

    Also, it's annoying that most bottles are so small. I use A LOT of shampoo and it seems to vanish with in a week or two. That's why i like treseme...nice big bottle and pretty decent product.

    Cuzco, if you find anything good for oily hair, LMK. It seems like they've stopped selling that anywhere. (And no Salon Selectives around here! If they even still make it.). I've just started using the new Fructiese [SP] - long and strong I think the type is. It's all right. Everything's "normal to oily" and those are two WAY different hair types. It's frustrating!!

    But other than using more expensive salon products... what's a gal to do?
