Are There Any Decent Shampoos For Men Left?

Mon May 03, 2004 5:02 am

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've always thought that Nivea is quite good.

Try Pantene pro-v..it doesn't smell bad.

Right now I have Red Ken, though it is about $20/bottle.

I use Pert Plus 2 in 1. Can't get much better then that. Smells great, looks great, and isn't necessarily a "woman's shampoo."

Nothin wrong with Pert Plus or Head & Shoulders...I use either, depending on which one catches my eye first in the market when I need a new bottle...

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:

Nivea
Redken
Aquage

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.

I use Matrix Biolage Normalizing Shampoo. You're only supposed to be able to get it at a salon, but there are probably some grocery stores that carry it.

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? Big grin 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.

If you step into the shower with some chick, she's highly unlikely to notice your brand of shampoo at all  Smokin cool

You actually have to wash your own hair? I have Access-Air to wash my hair and tenderly massage my scalp.

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 the Nivea Shampoo. It's respectable.

re-post of my deleted post

For what it is worth, I have added you to my RR list. I don't care what you stand for or whatever, but I always seem to laugh at something you post. In my book that goes
along way.

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!

Well I use Garnier Fructis with a Conditioner by TIGI BeadHead. Fructis smells fruity, but the TIGI stuff just smells like nothing much, really.

I rub in some CREW Grooming Cream, though. That stuff rocks.

OK, so now we have:

Nivea
Redken
Aquage
BEER!!
Matrix Biolage Normalizing Shampoo
Garnier Fructis x2
TresEmme Vitamin C Clarifying
Molton Brown's "Triple Action Biao Hairwash"

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.

1st choice: Aveda Mint
2nd choice: Neutrogena

Both have fragrances, but they aren't "sweet" smelling. They just smell nice and clean.

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.

I used to do Herbal Essence but switched to the Garnier Fructis.. doesn't smell too feminine and leaves my hair loooking great. But, since I started shaving my head, I don't have to wash as much.  Smile

And Venuscat2 appears to be the winner! I don't know what a 15 year old kid is doing with such an expensive shampoo, but I don't give a shit right now.  Big grin I bought Matrix Biolage at Savon, but the hydrating formula rather than normalizing as my hair tends to be dry. It was 7 duckets, but well worth the bread. I was told this morning by a female admirer that my hair looks "great." It feels nice, doesn't smell like a bitch shampoo and enhances my thick shaft. Thanks dude. I also got the Garnier Fructis, but that doesn't look like it's going to get any use. Maybe I'll use it for my pubes.

I would recommend the Biolage without reservation.

Like some of the other suggestions: Garnier Fructis

..plus if you use hair styling products, their line-up is worth a try.

I've started using J&J Baby Shampoo (actually the Target knock off of the same because I'm sure a cheap bastard). It works great and doesn't leave me smelling like a flower.
