Can you believe that Fall is almost here? You’ve GOT to switch up your beauty routine when the seasons change and that starts with a good shampoo. The way you clean your hair sets the stage for the condition of your hair, the style, even the texture. What shampoo should you be using for your hair type? Here’s the lowdown:

Textured – Whether you’re natural (like Jill Scott) or relaxed (like Jennifer Hudson), you need to infuse your hair with as much moisture as possible and handle your hair with kid gloves. Pantene Relaxed & Natural Shampoo is perfect for all types of textured hair and contains oil-enriched moisturizers to help nourish and protect your hair.

Fine/Flat – Those with fine hair have to be extra careful with the amount of products they apply:  too much buildup and it just lies there.  TRESemme Naturals Radiant Volume has a gorgeous new formula that’s low in sulfates and creates volume and strength.

Curly – Those with curly locks need to maintain the integrity of the shape and put a lockdown on frizz. Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo will keep your hair smooth (i.e. frizz-free), defined and strong.

Color-Treated – Nothing looks worse than faded or brassy color. Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson (the mane man for Ashley Greene and Anne Hathaway) makes Individual Color shampoos that protect your investment and enhance your color. They come in formulas for blondes, brunettes and redheads and you can purchase them at Target!

Frizzy – Frizz is caused when water gets under a hair cuticle and causes it to lift. You need to keep your hair shaft as smooth and hydrated as possible to resist that unsightly mess, so grab a bottle of Suave Sleek Shampoo, which contains silk amino acids and vitamin E to improve your texture and leave your hair smooth and healthy.

Oily – Ok, so here’s the trick – avoid all shampoos with creamy consistencies but use one that will help you clean (not over clean or you’ll flip to dry/damaged.) I absolutely love Pantene Flat to Volume Shampoo for Fine Hair. It’s a clear, lightweight formula that will add a little boost to your ‘do.

Dry/Damaged – This hair type needs the opposite of oily and can use as much moisture as you can get. My new favorite for this hair type is Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter Shampoo, which uses the naturally-moisturizing properties of these two oils to infuse a ton of moisture into your parched hair.

Bonus! On-the-Go Shampoo for All Hair Types – Too busy to hop in the shower? Don’t run out with gross hair: grab a dry shampoo! Use TRESemme Freshstart Dry Shampoo formula for Normal to Oily hair and the Waterless Foam Shampoo for Normal to Dry/Curly.

Now you have no excuse no excuse not to have super fabulous, clean hair this coming season! Go grab your new shampoo and lather up!
