I just ran out of my last bottle of shampoo, so like any self-respecting non-Frenchman, I realized that it's time to buy a new bottle. I went to the grocery store, as I've done many times before. This time, however, was different.
I was bombarded by subtitles like Free Me Fresia, Apple Valley, Luscious Lavender, Passionate Peach, Petunias a Plenty and Deep Inside Daffodils.
Nary a normal, decent shampoo left. Of course they had the old standbys like Pert Plus, Suave and Head and Shoulders, but those are white trash shampoos. Does anyone know when the shampoo industry decided that straight men don't wash their hair and those who do want to smell like a flower garden? And can anyone recommend a decent shampoo that won't leave me smelling like a 15 year-old girl?

I appreciate the input.
Pantene Pro-V is not an option. I girl I dated used it and her hair started falling out. I'd like to think it was partly because she had to deal with me, but it started before we even met, so there goes that theory.
As I said, Head n Shoulders, Pert etc. are shit. It was fine when I 13, but I'm looking for something with a little more class and something that actually works. This wouldn't apply to 90% of you, but when you take a girl into the shower, the last thing she wants to see (other than your millimeter monster) is some budget shampoo.
The current recommendations in the running are:
Unless some new recommendations come along and sweep me off my feet, I'll probably try the Nivea first. I didn't even know they made shampoo, I thought they just made face shit. Anyway, they seem to make a quality product and deserve a shot, if I can find it.
J.mo - I'm not sure I "stand for" anything... but unlike most people on here, it seems like you get it and don't take everything seriously and that's good enough for me.

Since when Pert white trash? My Dad's always used Prell, and I use Pantene Pro-V. And my hair's not falling out.
Flight152, you have more expensive tastes than I do. Of course, that's why you drive a Bimmer and I drive a Camry, right? I once bought a $10 bottle of shampoo from my barber because at the time I was swimming a lot of laps in a chlorinated pool and and it built up in my hair something fierce. The shampoo worked, but I thought $10/bottle was awfully expensive.

I use TresEmme Vitamin C Clarifying shampoo. Helps to get the product out of my hair and is fairly inexpensive... $4.99 for a 32oz bottle, plus it doesn't really have much of a smell either. I also use a seperate conditioner as well.

Try Molton Brown's "Triple Action Biao Hairwash" for men. You can get it at Niemann Marcus in the USA, or from the Molton Brown website. Your girl in the shower will be impressed with the product and (hopefully) your "stand-up" routine!

I'm just going to go hog wild at the supermarket and grab a shitload of them and see which I like the best. I figure it's easier than going one by one. I don't use any of the grooming shit, so all I'm really looking for is something decent to clean my hair and not dry it out.
Unfortunately, the one I used before was sent to me by a friend in Italy and I can't find it here, so I appreciate the input.
MD-90 - your old man uses PRELL?!? For the love of Jesus and all that remains holy, WHY? It's like Suave... on crack.

Aveda Mint is nice, I'd use it but its way too expensive--its around $35 for a big bottle of the stuff. I like using Garnier Fructis although it is too heavy and sometimes I need to switch up to Herbal Essences because it doesn't weigh my hair down.
