  • They used to sell shampoos for "Oily Hair" but I can;t find them anywhere. Everything is for Dry or Normal or Color Treated. I have thick, oily hair and by the end of the day, my hair just looks gross and dirty.

    While I can't help you, I do feel your pain

  • yup I have the same problem, I was having to wash my hair everyday and my hair dresser told me it makes it worse washing too frequently, so now between washes I am using the dry shampoo spray in, its great so far, so now I am just washing every other day.

  • Start with a good shampoo that is for fine thin hair, that will add volume, then find a volumizing foam to put in your roots before you do your hair.
