I find with certain conditioners my hair doesn't get as greasy as much. Not to bash VO5 or suave or anything, but I noticed that my hair gets greasy faster and feels more limp when I use those (though I'm sure it works for others!) but when I use my Aveda (expensive for some, but I get it from my friend for free.) conditioner, it feels like shampoo without the dryness. So, I guess you just gotta find the products for you.
