So many shampoos, so much confusion

I need to know the truth: How often should I be using shampoo and conditioner, and what sorts of shampoo and conditioner?

Over the past few years, my hair has started thinning. I'm not bald, but I no longer the possess the luxuriant mane I had in college.
I get my hair cut at a hairstyling academy, and have been asking the stylists how I should shampoo. Their advice is making my head spin. Some told me to use organic shampoo, others told me to use shampoo without sulfates. Some told me I need to condition my hair often, others have said once a week is enough. I've been told to use volumizing conditioner by some to make my hair fuller, others say it doesn't matter.
So I ask MeFi: How should I be washing my hair, with what, and how often? If you can also let me know specific brands to use, it would be much appreciated.
I saw this earlier thread
, but it doesn't seem to answer my questions.
