Default What is the BEST hair thickening shampoo/conditioner combo ?

Hope you guys can help me on this one.

My girlfriend always buys "clarifying" shampoos and I'm starting to realize that these are probably the worst for us guys who want to make our hair look as thick as possible.

So what do you recommend that I can buy here in the USA ? Or do I have to buy it online from overseas ?

Are there really any shampoos that help thicken the look/volume of your hair ? Or is it all a scam ?

EpilepticSceptic,

Yes, in my experience, thickening shampoos do work. I have used several purchased off the shelf at my local grocery store. Nothing exotic or expensive. Currently I'm using Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo. In the past I've used Vive for Men.

I am also fond of using a conditioner called Mane 'n Tail. I've used this for years even before I experienced significant hair loss. I use it both in the shower and as a leave in. I find that rubbing a small amount on my palms and distributing it through my hair adds volume and texture to my hair. It leaves a somewhat waxy feeling as it dries.

IMHO, i followed Thana's advice and opted for Aveda volumizing shampoo and nvr looked back. The volumizing clay conditioner seems normal though

I finally broke down and dropped some $$ on Aveda Pure Abundance Shampoo and Hair Potion. I've only been using it a couple of days so I'm not ready to give my impressions yet.

I'll you guys know what I think.

I've tried a few. Bonacure made things worse, Nizoral had side effects after a while, but I liked both ProFusion (which you might not get in the 'States) or American Crew Revitaise.
