I stood in the shampoo aisle at Walmart yesterday for at least 10 minutes trying to find a shampoo for oily hair for DS.

Welcome to the board!! I wish I had an answer for you, but it being for a boy, not something i have experience with and I'm sure he probably doesn't want you buying him Herbal Essance for oily scalp. ;0) How often does he wash his hair?? Washing it too often will actually make it oiler by signaling the oil glands to produce more often.

My son has very oily hair. He has to wash it every other day, or it looks greasy. The brand he uses is called Magic Botanicals, which has no scent (he's allergic), in spite of the name. It's oil free and does a very good job, although I hate paying $10
