finding the right shampoo for you

Not sure which shampoo can address your hair’s most pressing needs? No worries, we’ll help you pick the best one for your hair type!

Great hair starts in the shower so it’s important that you choose the right products to wash it with. But shopping for shampoo alone can drive you nuts, especially if you haven’t figured out which works for your very hard-to-please locks. It doesn’t help that the hair care aisle at the grocery store has 10 full shelves of products promising to give you beautiful hair (it’s the best place to lose your mind practice your decision-making skills, we’re telling ya!).

You can’t really eenie-meenie-miney-mo your way to gorgeous tresses; but with all those formulations to choose from, it’s easy to pick the wrong one. Lucky for you, you’ve got friends here at All Things Hair who are more than happy to break them down for you so you can toss that shampoo into your cart with peace of mind. Whatever your hair concern is—dry, damaged, dull, frizzy, etcetera—we’ll help you find the exact shampoo that can get to the bottom if it, once and for all.

Frizzy hair

Frizzy hair is every girl’s nightmare. It’s hard to nail any hairstyle if your unruly hair keeps getting in the way. If you’ve been battling with unruly hair and haven’t found the shampoo that works, you gotta try TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo. It’s specifically formulated to help tame frizz and leave your hair feeling gorgeously sleek and manageable.

Dry and damaged hair

Your hair has already been through a lot and the last thing it needs is the wrong shampoo formulation. Dry and damaged hair needs extra doses of moisture to smoothen the hair cuticles and make it look and feel a lot healthier. We’ve got the shampoo that gives just that: Dove Intense Repair Shampoo.

Formulated with Keratin-Actives, this shampoo helps your hair recover from damage in two different ways: by repairing signs of surface damage, making your hair look and feel smoother and stronger against breakage; and by penetrating the strands to provide hair nourishment deep inside, which leaves hair strengthened and resilient to future damage.

Dull, lifeless hair 

Truth is, hair’s actually really dead—but it doesn’t have to look it. Perfectly nourished tresses are radiant and lustrous, so make sure you take care of them really well and use shampoo that help to replenish lost nutrients, like TRESemmé Detox & Nourish Shampoo. It has natural ingredients like ginger and green tea, it deeply cleanses and nourishes hair so it looks and feel healthy everyday.

Fine and limp

If your hair is fine or tends to fall flat, choose a shampoo that’s lightweight so it won’t weigh your hair down. We love Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo. Made with Oxyfusion Technology, it leaves hair feeling soft, nourished, and full of natural volume.

Dandruff

Dandruff can be caused by a lot of different things: oily scalp, dry scalp, product build-up, stress, skin conditions, and more. Some are easier to solve than others. As such, it’s always good to invest in great shampoo that’s specifically formulated to help with dandruff and keep hair and scalp healthy.

Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

If you’re still on a hunt for an awesome anti-dandruff shampoo, let us share with you our favorite: CLEAR Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. With a blend of 10 nutrients, it nourishes and hydrates your scalp from root to tip — making it feel fresh and healthy. It’s also formulated with Nutrium 10 and Fresh Sakura Fragrance which activates the scalp’s natural protection layer to help your scalp resist the root cause of dandruff.

Hair Fall

Having weak, brittle hair is one of the most common reasons for hair fall. Combat hair thinning with shampoo that strengthens your strands like Sunsilk Strong & Long. It’s a shampoo with biotin that helps to deeply nourish your hair to get stronger as it grows.

Colored hair

Switching up your hair color exposes your strands to harsh chemicals which can cause serious damage to your locks. If you dye your hair, it needs all the damage protection that it can get.

TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Shampoo

Use TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo to reinforce hair’s natural protective barrier. It restores hair and protects against future damage.
