The best shampoo for your hair type


Hey! You, in the shower! Don’t just reach for any old shampoo bottle – different hair types need different products, and choosing the right one will make a huge difference to the look and feel of your locks. From fine to frizzy and everything in between, maybe Goldilocks was on to something – you’ve got to find the one that’s juuust right. Pick up the shampoo made for you and get the most out of each wash.

If you have dry hair…

Conditioner isn’t the only thing a head of dried-out strands needs. When your mane feels a little more like straw than hair, the right shampoo can work wonders in helping to repair it. Products containing argan oil are rich in vitamin E for nourishment.

If your hair is colour-treated…

When you put in the time, effort and money to change your colour, the last thing you want is to watch it run down the drain. Look for a shampoo that’s sulphate-free, as it won’t strip the new hue from your strands. Oh, and try to keep the washes down to just two per week.

If you’ve got curly or frizz-prone hair…

To keep those curls soft and frizz-free, jump in the shower with a shampoo that has moisturising properties. Check the ingredients label for vitamins A and E – both work to keep curls strong, and protect hair from heat damage. Total no-brainer.

If you have fine hair…

Greasiness and a lack of volume is just fabulous, isn’t it? #thestruggleisreal. To prevent your locks from going limp, buy a volumising shampoo that also absorbs oil and reduces product build-up. Fine hair also tends to be the most vulnerable to damage, a shampoo with flaxseed oil is well worth investing in. Super soft strands, we’re ready for you.

If you have thick hair…

It’s both a blessing and a curse: on one hand, you never have to worry about volume, but on the other, at-home blow-dries are near impossible. Get your locks in a more manageable state with a little in-shower preparation. Go for a shampoo that offers frizz control with vitamins B5, C and E and a good dose of natural oils.
