How MUCH is preferential. What I'd like to know is: how oily does your hair get in 3 days? That's the most important thing when deciding how much to use. As for WHAT to use, again, it's preferential. It depends only on how your hair behaves with a certain product. If you've been using one thing and your hair looks amazing, then why try anything else to make it look amazing ;)? If you want a change-up of smells and ingredients, it's going to be a trial until you find one that smells great and makes your hair feel great! Everyone's hair behaves differently.
1.) Redken's Clear Moisture is a great basic shampoo that smells great and gently moisturizes without overgreasing your hair. Their All Soft is great too. It's a bit pricey though, but they do offer it in huge bottles to save you some cash!
2.) Pantiene Pro-V is a classic, and the Ice Shine conditioner is wonderful. I like their volumizing shampoo because it makes my hair so bouncy. And my hair is thick and coarse, so that's saying something!
3.) Matrix. It's the orange bottle. I don't remember anything else except that it smelled great and felt great!
4.) L'Oreal's? EverPure sulfate-free stuff. Using it now, and I have great healthy hair!
Suggestion for HOW MUCH:
Quarter-sized for shampoo, Half-Dollar for conditioner. Rinse about 85%[thick hair]-95[thin hair]% of that conditioner out so you don't negate using conditioner completely, but only if you know your hair doesn't get greasy/oily quickly.
One More Tip: Go as long as possible without washing your hair! It will keep the natural oils in which will help keep your hair healthy. For my coarse, thick, full head of hair that starts to get greasy after 1 week without washing, I wash my hair a max of twice a week. If you want to keep those natural oils in your hair, you can condition your hair [quarter-sized amount] every day, but don't WASH it every day.
K, I shut up now. :)
