The Best Shampoo For Your Hair Type

By Kathryn S.

Finding the perfect shampoo can be a taxing and costly tax.  Everyone’s hair is different and therefore requires a different type of shampoo.  There’s no universal formula that will tell you exactly which shampoo you need, but I have put together a list of some of the best ones that I have found, and I hope that it will be of some use to you as well.

If you have colour-treated hair, especially if it’s been bleached, then you are going to want a gentler and milder shampoo so that it doesn’t fade the colour.  Also, your hair is going to be prone to damage if it’s dyed, so you want to use a shampoo that is going to be moisturizing and replenishing.


A couple good of ones are:

-Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Brightening Blonde Shampoo

-KMS California Colour Vitality Shampoo

-Kevin Murphy Angel Wash

-AG Hair Cosmetics Colour Safe Sulfate-Free Shampoo

Oily Hair:

If you have naturally oily hair, you’re most likely looking for a shampoo that isn’t going to add a bunch of extra gunk to your hair and one that can keep your hair looking clean for days on end.


Some shampoos for you to try out are:

-Biolage Normalizing Shampoo

-Pantene Clarity Purifying Shampoo

-Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo


Dry Hair:

If you suffer from dry and brittle hair, you’re going to want to look for a milder and gentler shampoo that is going to restore nutrients in your hair.

Some recommendations:

-Giovanni Smooth as Silk Shampoo

-Kérastase Bain Satin 2

-Mizani Therasmooth Shampoo

-Aubrey Organics Blue Chamomile Hydrating Shampoo

-Beecology Honey and Botanical Sulfate-Free Shampoo

These are the major categories that most hair types fall into.  If yours is none of the above I am so sorry and I wish you the best of luck in your quest to find your ideal shampoo.  As for the rest of you, I hope that you were finally able to find that one shampoo that just works for you.  If  you weren’t able to, a quick google search will bring you lots of different suggestions.
