This is the best...So far I love it...I usually have oily hair by 5 PM after I wash it in the morning, also I did follow up with a tea-tree shampoo, so I'm not sure if its this shampoo alone or if its the combination of the two, but either way it was a cheap tea tree shampoo, I would recommend this to all my fine Asian oily hair girlies...I work out 6 out of 7 days a week and am very outdoorsy so I build up a lot of sweat in my hair and using this shampoo every two weeks helps clean out my hair and make it feel soft and super clean
