The Absolute Best Shampoos For Every Hair Type


Shampoo – we all use it! But do you ever think about what’s in it? There is so much more to shampoo than the ingredients that help de-grease our hair. Different hair types and concerns require different ingredients to help keep hair healthy and using the wrong shampoo can leave your hair feeling lack-luster. So whether your hair type is dry, fine, oily, or curly, we’ve rounded up the best shampoos specifically formulated for every hair type!

Dry Hair: Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo

Olaplex is a magical product that helps repair and protect the hair through its line of shampoo, conditioner and most famously, its Hair Perfector. This super hydrating shampoo creates real, structural repair to the hair. Suitable for all types of hair, including colored, this shampoo addresses split ends, dry locks, frizz, and other damage. It’s also a clean beauty product and free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates, which means it’s actually good for your hair in the long-run!

Fine Hair: Living Proof Full Shampoo

This gentle cleansing shampoo helps fine hair look like natural-looking full-bodied hair with only a quick wash! It uses the patented Health Hair Molecule, which, according to Living Proof, “preps your hair for maximum fullness and body by removing residue and buildup.” The brand’s products are also PETA Certified Cruelty-Free, making this shampoo an easy, ethical choice for your fine locks.

Oily Hair: Verb Reset Clarifying Shampoo

This cleansing shampoo removes product build-up to restore balance and “reset” your scalp. Seawater intensely cleanses the scalp while restoring essential minerals to the hair, while aloe soothes scalp irritation and helps reduce flakiness. Verb is a water-based shampoo – as opposed to an oil-based – so your hair isn’t left feeling heavier than before your wash. It’s suitable for all types of hair, but many users note that it works particularly well for curly and coily hair. After your wash a light scent of grapefruit and oatmeal remains, leaving you feeling clean and bright!

Curly Hair: Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Avocado Hydrating Shampoo

This moisture-rich shampoo is perfect for all curls, from waves to coils. It nourishes and hydrates without stripping natural oils using tomato fruit ferment, shea butter, avocado oil, and rice amino acids. The formula penetrates the hair follicle to tame frizz and preserve and enhance curl definition, which is exactly what you need to have healthy looking curls! Briogeo is a clean brand that believes beauty shouldn’t be compromised by harsh or harmful ingredients, so you can feel good about what you’re putting in your hair.
