honey I'm strong vs fair trade honey

I have weird hair it gets oily yet I have static-y end even in the summer. I always seem to be on the eternal search for a shampoo that will give me reasonable second day hair and a little shine. (clarifying shampoos are too harsh for me) Lately I have been taken to honey in my hair products. Here are my thoughts on two shampoos using honey to strengthen and moisturize your hair.
Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong: I am just finished my bottle of this
pros:
  • lovely scent
  • gives great soft and shiny hair
  • controls static quite well
cons:
  • my beautiful hair only last one day, oily mess by the next morning

Overall I chose not to re-purchase this product simply because of how oily my hair is the second day. I beyond love how nice my hair is when it is first washed it would be holy grail for me if it lasted more than a day. Dry shampoo doesn't seem to make that much of a difference I went through a whole can of batiste with this shampoo...

Lush Fair Trade Honey: my newest purchase contains 50% honey and no perservatives.
pros:
  • the bottle warns you won't need perfume while using this shampoo, the scent is really not that strong once your hair is dry
  • quite smooth and shiny hair, the best I have had with natural based shampoos
  • very soft with little frizziness
cons:
  • hair is still static ridden
  • second day hair is not so pleasant 
I could not wait for lush to release this in canada so I am glad I am trying it out. I do like the idea of using honey as your moisture in your hair. I haven't used my whole bottle yet so I have no clue as to if it will be holy grail for me but so far I am not hating it. My second day hair is less greasy with this shampoo so it is a better option right now than the herbal essence.

If there are others who suffer from oily second day hair and static and have found something that works for you, please do share!
