    I never post in these parts, so pardon my ignorance if this is a dumb thread. Has anyone tried the new line of Axe shampoos? I hate their advertising and their douchebag scents, but their "depoof" shampoo seems promising if it works as advertised. I have really thick, poofy hair (think Rob Blagojevich) and I am always on the hunt for effective "depoofing" agents. Most shampoo seems marketed toward women and obsessed with producing volume--this is one of the first I have seen that actively touts its depoofing. It's only 4.99 at Target, so I will pick some up this afternoon and report back if anyone is interested. http://www.target.com/Axe-Depoof-Sha.../dp/B001K4DKDO

    I use Pantene Pro-V... seems to be doing the job fairly well.

    I know their body gel is very good. Smells are good not too strong also. I like the deodorant as well.

    I have yet to try their shampoo but I do use their deodorant.

    Does the job quite nicely.

    Poof is a problem. A quick review would be great.

    Deodorant is solid, I would go Crew or Aveda for shampoo.

    I hate the Aveda for Men shampoo (plus the same conditioner) - left my hair never really feeling clean and it got oily again faster than usual.

    I'm using Herbal Essences Hydralicious targeting shampoo and conditioner now - smells a little girly to start with, but it works better than anything I've tried on my long hair (which curls a bit at the and can be poofy).

    I have not found anything as effective at controlling my regal mane as Suave conditioner. $1.29 a bottle, or something like that.

    Garnier Fructis is another good cheap option.

    So i purchased some from the local Target a few days ago. It costs 4.99. Odor is inoffensive--not herbaly or fruity...slightly medicinal somehow...I really can't place it...doesn't smell like any other shampoo I have tried. Color and texture is unique--it is bright, road-cone orange with a shimmery silky feel.

    I have only used it a few times, but so far it seems to be doing a fair job at controlling "poof." It certainly isn't volumizing. Strips dirt and grease quite well and leaves hair with a dull matte feel--doesn't seem to leave any sort of sheen (Panteene always left my hair oddly shiny, which I wasn't a fan of).

    How did it work for you? Also anyone know where I can get it in Canada? Sounds like exactly what I need.

    Shampoo can't "give" you dandruff. You can use shampoos to help treat dandruff, but soap on your head doesn't "cause" your dandruff.
