In Chicago, each bottle seems to be about $6.50...but I find I really don't need to use all that much (my hair is incredibly fine, but thick, and it goes amost to the bottom of my shoulder blades).

It also makes my hair really, really shiny and seems to pop out red that I didn't know I had! My hair is the color of fresh maple syrup, but I like the smell of the Chestnut/Espresso one better than Amber/Maple.

I switch between the green herbal essence for oily hair and T-Gel. I rarely use conditioner since I've cut my hair short. I figure what's the point of washing off the oils from your hair and scalp when you are going to plaster it all back on again by way of a conditioner, hehe But when my hair was longer I had to use a conditioner and would either use one of those spray in and leave in (forget the name, sorry), or one of the herbal essence ones, usually the one that compliments the oily hair green shampoo.

Mane & Tail has been my favorite for a very, very long time, it treats my long, thick hair beautifully.
I do occasionally try other stuff, but I keep going back to M&T.
Recently tried Sunsilk, saw absolutely no difference.
Nexxus made my hair heavy and limp, regardless of the formula.

I like head and shoulders refresh, and finesse. I use finesse conditioner too. No fancy shampoo for me. I tried pantene, but I noticed I had more of a problem with hair in the shower. With head and shoulders and finesse I think my hair stays put on my head more.

Right now, because I'm a red head I'm using Aveda Madder Root Shampoo and Conditioner. My stylist also created a Conditioner that I can use once a week to keep the brightness of my color.

I use Catwalk's Fashionista. It smells like grape soda and works wonerfully in the hard water we have here. I buy it in the liter bottles when they run the shampoo and conditioner together for $19.99, and it lasts for months.

Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Threat...I've tried just about every shampoo under the sun, and this is the only kind that keeps my hair nicely balanced! For conditioner I use a discontinued one from B&BW.

Ok- these are the shampoos i've tried so far (like i mentioned before, my hair is long, wavy, and naturally brunette, it's also thick and frizzes occassionally). Also, i'm not exactly rolling in the dough so to speak right now ..so I need a good product for not much money :

I am currently looking for a new shampoo and conditioner because my all time favorite one: Herbal Essence for normal hair with Passion Flower, Patucholli, Vetvier was discontinued to make way for the new herbal essence line. So now i'm stuck looking for something else! And nothing i've currently found does my hair justice like the old herbal essence line did! I'm soo sad! Here's what i've tried!! (Also, I didn't try these all at once, I did it over time ):

*Sunsilk Shampoo and Conditioner(green bottle for waves and curles)- I thought this stuff was aweful, It didn't do a thing for frizz or my waves. I do love the commercials they put in my Cosmopolitan though- they're funny! I definitely won't be using this one again.

*Head and Shoulders Refresh - I like the tingly sensation it gives you on your scalp, but it did nothing to help my psorasis...so I don't use it anymore. But if I didn't have psorasis- i would definitely recommend it- it's fun and tingly!

*Suave Shampoos and Conditioner - I LOVE the variety and the way they smell....but they don't do a thing for my frizz.

*Pantene Pro-V Purity Clarifying Shampoo- I LOVE this product!!! It's great on buildup and leaves your hair looking awesome!!! I only use it once a week though...I don't want to strip my hair of the good moisture in it...so i'm still looking for a daily shampoo/condition that will work well for me

*Neutrogena Stubborn Itch Control Shampoo- this stuff is incredable on psorasis!!!!!!! I use it once a week when I don't have any flare ups...and when I do have a flare up -I use it 2-3x a week and it works wonders!! I highly recommend this one to anyone with a very itch scalp or psorasis. The smell isn't great...but it definitely helps

* Head and Shoulders Dry Scalp Shampoo - this stuff didn't do a thing for me- I don't recommend it.

*Herbal Essence Citrus Lift for Normal Hair - this stuff smells nice, but didn't do much for my hair.

*Herbal Essence - Totally Twisted -the new line- For Waves/Curls - this stuff smells good, but it works horrible! I hate the new line it's not made as well as the older one was and it doesn't work on my hair as well as the older products did.

*Dove Shampoo and Conditioner- this stuff is gentle on your scalp and smells nice...but it just didn't do what I wanted it to for my hair. It is nice though

*Physique- omg! This product smells incredable!!!! But after about a week of using it, my hair started to do weird things! So I stopped using it.

*Garnier Fructise- this stuff didn't do a thing for my hair and it made it all weird! Yuck! It smells nice- but I definitely wouldnt use it again

*Citri Shine - I like some of their styling products....but their shampoo/ conditioner made my hair look weird.

.......so yea, i've tried just about everything reasonably priced and i've yet to find a new replacement for my old Herbal Essence favorites! I'm considering trying Pantene Pro-V 's new Ice Shine shampoo and conditioner- I heard that one works nicely....has anyone tried this???? (Also, I use all Aussie styling products - they work awesome! )

I use Jason apricot shampoo. MMM! It smells soo good I could eat it! I rarely use conditioner, I use St. Ives. I love both companies, because neither use animal testing. Jason also does not use any animal ingredients and many of the ingredientsare organic. Plus, it leaves my hair feeling soft.

I use the sunsilk Pink Bottle for intense moisture shampoo..I heart it.
And for conditioner, I have FELL IN LOVE with Dove intense moisture as well...Lets just say I'm moistened enough.

I have 3 bottles sitting in my shower shelf, because i like to switch upon my mood.
I have to say i absolutely LOVE WELLA!! my favourite shampoo has been discounted here in germany, but my friend got me the WELLA Hair moouse and the shampoo! it is so expensive so i try to save it!

I also use L'Oreal elvital for red coloured hair, and
Schwarzkopf Gliss kur Satin brown because my hair is like a reddy brown and it works wonders.
I also have a bottle of shampoo/conditioner PANTENE but only because that works once in a while.

I find it to get my hair in a perfect shape i have to get it really dirty, so i wont wash it for about 2 - 3 days and then make it dirtier with hairspray.

I also use those spray leave in conditioners by Gliss Kur schwarskopf they are slighty expensive but really worth it!

I use the John Frieda "Straight Ahead" shampoo. I LOVE it. Its a little pricey, but definately worth it. I have naturally curly, frizzy red hair, and this is the only shampoo that really allows me to wear it straight, and it eliminates ALL of the frizz. I do use a claififying shampoo about once a week, b/c it has a tendency to build up, but other than that I love it! I'll never switch!

Right now I'm using tressemee for normal hair. It seems to work pretty good for me. My only complaint is that I have oily skin, so my hair ends up looking a bit dirty after only about 20 hours. I used to use panteen and that didn'thappen, but I think the paneen actually dried out my hair more than anything. The worst was v05. My step-sister loves it so that used to be all my step-father would get for the longest time. My step-sister is Puerto Rican/Cuban. Her hair is completely different than mine, from texture right on down.

You might consider trying the Bedhead salon products.
