Having gorgeous hair begins with using the best haircare products, starting with different types of shampoos.
Whether your goal is to reverse the signs of damage (such as dryness or dullness), or you’re hoping to enhance your hair’s natural texture (by fighting frizz and blocking humidity, so that your bouncy curls look shiny and lustrous), the process starts the moment you jump into the shower.
5 Must-Have Shampoos for Beautiful Hair
In addition to cleansing dirt, oil, and product build-up in your hair, shampoos offer a multitude of other hair-beautifying benefits. From volumizing and frizz-fighting to sulfate-free and moisturizing shampoos, this week’s edition of “Fabulous Finds” features 5 must-have shampoos for beautiful hair.
Designed to deep-cleanse hair by removing excess oil from the roots as well as debris and product build-up (from hair styling), purifying shampoos can be used weekly to help boost hair’s natural volume. Utilizing the balancing properties of natural green clay, the Dessange Paris Balancing Shampoo is a perfect example of a purifying shampoo that not only minimizes oily roots, it also helps smooth and moisturize dry ends.
For dry, brittle, damaged hair, you need to use a moisturizing shampoo. To bring back the health and sheen of your hair, the vitamin-infused Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo is designed to rebalance moisture while helping to improve the texture and softness of your hair. Moisturizing shampoos are great for color-treated hair, wavy or curly hair, and coarse hair types.
For limp, lifeless hair that needs a lift, opt for volumizing shampoos. These are ideal for fine or thin hair, as they help to visually plump up the appearance of each strand, making the hair look more full and voluminous. An affordable and effective volumizing shampoo is the Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Body Shampoo, as it boosts the bounce and body of hair, while adding softness and manageability.
For gals who want to fight frizz and minimize the effects of humidity on their hair, a frizz-fighting shampoo is an essential. These types of shampoos are designed to add a protective, lightweight coating onto the strands of hair, essentially keeping out humidity (which leads to frizz). This invisible shield also imparts shine and luster, which makes hair look naturally beautiful. A perfect example of a popular frizz-fighting shampoo is the Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo, which earned itself the prestigious title of an Allure “Best of Beauty” winner.
For all you on-the-go gals who want to minimize the amount of haircare products in your arsenal, a conditioning shampoo is a great option. These multi-purpose formulas mean less time in the shower, and more time doing the things you love. A moisturizing, sulfate-free option (that acts as a powerful combination of shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, de-tangler, and leave-in conditioner) is the Wen Cleansing Condition (the “Fig” formula is my favorite for thick, wavy hair). This natural shampoo helps bring back your hair’s natural vitality, vibrance, and shine.
As you can see, all shampoos are not created equally. Depending on the type of hair you have and the issues you’re looking to resolve, being selective about the types of shampoo you use makes a world of difference in how your hair looks and feels.
