My hair is moody, too. Some days it looks halfway decent and other days it looks like I stuck my finger in a light socket.

Men shower with concrete bars of soap and sand paper. What is this conditioner you speak fluently of?

So I have to switch up my shampoo and conditioner every 3 to 4 weeks or so. I try to use about the size of a dime now that my hair is getting longer again. My hair is so super thick yet curly... so I have one heck of a time making it do what I want usually. I have to have it thinned every month so I don't spend an hour drying my hair with the hairdryer. *Sigh* if only we women had it as easy as men....

And you are one to speak Synth....you are quite picky when it comes to shampoo.

, you guys do and I'm always amazed by it. We women get to be called "older" and you men get the honor of being called "distinguished"! Not fair!!

I used to have a roommate who used so much Axe body spray I could smell him coming down the hall. We had a heart to heart and he agreed to go easier on it due to my severe allergies. Long story short- he was keeping the spray in his car and putting it on in the car after he left the house in the morning. One day he didn't tightly cap it and it spilled all over his car. He forever blames me for ruining his new car "smell".
Haha. I use the deoderant and body spray haha. Lets just say all my friends wonder how I get the ladies.

A long time ago my brother's then girlfriend was living with us. She sprayed herself with (what sSHE thought) was some sexy smelling cologne and walked by my brother as he was eating breakfast. He told her to get away from him, he was trying to eat! lol

Oh, it's not the deodorant or body spray, it's your charming personality and you know it! Pfffttt, as if we women were that shallow that we'd fall for smell and not charm??

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.

Suggestions:
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. :)
