If your shampoo and conditioner aren't giving you enviable hair—you know, something that's healthy, voluminous, sleek, frizz-free, and shiny—then you might want to break up with them. Let me tell you. When you find haircare products that really work for your specific hair goals and needs, it's a huge game changer. When I found my current favorite shampoo that gives my hair actual life and volume and doesn't leave it looking limp and sad, I was shouting my discovery from the rooftops.
Now, there are shampoos and conditioners for every single hair goal. Hair damaged from salon services? There are products that can really save your strands. Need more volume? Some can really give you the big hair of your dreams. Want something to define and moisturize your curls? There are some truly great products out there.
If shiny hair is your endgame here, I've got you covered with this list of the best shampoos and conditioners for the shiniest, gleamiest (is that even a word?) strands of your life. These products have all the good ingredients to get your hair back into shape, making it sleek, hydrated, and silky. See below and make that swap for better hair.
Enhance your curls and reduce frizz with this shampoo from SheaMoisture. It gently washes away dirt and impurities, the coconut oil in the formula moisturizes, and the hibiscus-flower extracts improve hair elasticity and reduce breakage.
The Brilliant Gloss Conditioner is formulated with organic French cold-pressed olive oil for extra moisture and plant-derived extracts to prevent any moisture loss. It has a scent with notes of creamy woods, florals, and green tea.
For spotlight-worthy hair, R+Co's Television Perfect Shampoo will do the trick. It works well on all hair types and adds body and shine, strengthens, and softens. Key ingredients include juniper-berry extract, glycerin, babassu-seed oil, panthenol, and marigold-flower extract.
Rahua's Hydration Shampoo uses Amazonian oils to replenish dry hair and leave it gleaming. Rahua oil strengthens damaged hair, sacha inchi restores moisture balance, morete oil regulates the scalp and protects against environmental stressors, quinoa protein promotes moisture retention, and aloe vera regenerates the hair and promotes vibrancy.
Pair Philip B's Forever Shine Conditioner with the shampoo—it's meant to be used every other shampoo or more often if your hair is especially dry or damaged. You can use it as a rinse-off formula, or to enhance curls, apply a dime-size amount to clean, towel-dried hair and then air-dry or dry with a diffuser.
While this shampoo intensely washes away dirt, grime, and buildup, it doesn't leave the hair and scalp completely stripped dry. In fact, it restores hydration and works to repair damage.
