Not too expensive shampoo recommendations for fine/greasy hair

The only shampoo I can get away with is the Aussie range and if I use that all the time my hair goes a bit dull.

I have mid length fine hair that I have to wash everyday otherwise it looks unbelievably greasy. I need to be careful about the ends though as I colour it and they get a bit dry.

Any creamy type shampoos are awful for me and I tried a herbal essences one which made it much worse.

I seem to remember someone recommending a natural shampoo on here but can't find the thread.

Have you tried Wella's newish Pro Series range (red bottles)? They are not expensive and work really well on my fine & greasy hair. I use both "Repair" and "Volume", both work well on my fine highlighted hair, but I prefer the former. Yummy smell as well.

I haven't found a good natural alternative that works well on my hair (= produces a non-lanky, non-tangly result). Experimenting with shampoos is very difficult if you have fine hair. Anything that has any natural oils at all is terrible on me. I used to live in Brazil, where everyone has lovely hair, but all local shampoos were too oily for me, so I had to lug mine from Europe.

Try the Tresseme 'Naturals' range.

Aldi's own it's called Provive I like the sleek and shine version. It's 75p a bottle for the shampoo and the same price for the conditioner.

Belated thanks all for the replies. Haven't tried any of the suggestions so have made a list! I did find the Faith in Nature site and quite fancy trying the one on their for fine hair but would be £10 for the shampoo and the conditioner so might have to wait for payday.

The only one that works for me (not cheap but very concentrated so lasts ages:

My hair has been greasy since I was pre teen (now 49) and have tried them all, over the years

PS also leaves your hair super shiny and in great condition, good for dry ends too

I use the Aussie one too and use Head and Shoulders every 3rd wash to prevent build-up. My hair looks loads healthier and shinier. IMO a shampoo should clean your hair, it's conditioner and products that get it looking good.
