This is going to sound REALLY weird, but try not using shampoo.

I know, it's odd.

But get yourself a decent-sized squirt bottle, and after wetting your hair, put in a good-sized blob of conditioner. Add water until the bottle is about 2/3rds full, and then shake the living hell out of the bottle, and then squirt it all over your head. It'll lather up a bit, and you can massage it into your scalp. Let it sit for a little while, and then rinse it out. Use more, undiluted conditioner, but don't go near your roots with it, and let it sit a minute or two more. Rinse with cool water.

Blot dry with a towel -- don't rub it. And try to avoid the blow dryer.

It may feel greasy for the first while, but it'll adapt.

If you still just can't bear going without shampoo, use one that's very moisturizing and sulfate-free. I've used L'Oreal Eversoft, and it's quite nice. One thing that helps is after washing and towel-drying, I spray a decent amount of leave-in conditioner into it. That helps reduce a lot of the fuzziness.
