Do you have a favorite shampoo? Or do you use more than one in your current rotation? If you want to keep your locks looking their best, there are actually three types of hair cleansers you should be using regularly. Read on to find out what they are — and why you need them in your life starting now!

shampoo types

1. Clarifying Shampoo

There’s a lot of buildup that accumulates in your hair as a result of styling products, hard water, chlorine, and even waxes and moisturizers from other shampoos and conditioners. This stuff weighs hair down, making it look less than lively. A clarifying shampoo, like Pureology Purify Shampoo, specifically targets buildup, removing it from your hair and restoring bounce and luster.

2. Keratin Shampoo

This shampoo strengthens strands while it cleanses by fortifying hair with keratin, a natural protein in found in skin, nails and hair. It is especially effective for curly and frizzy textures, however, all hair types can benefit from it, especially with regular use. Try washing at least once a week with L’Oréal Professionnel Pro-Keratin Refill Shampoo, and we bet you’ll notice a difference.

3. Dry Shampoo

Every gal should have a bottle of dry shampoo on her vanity. It not only removes dirt, oil and product residue without water, but it’s also great for adding texture and hiding roots. Plus, it extends the life of your blowout, which is invaluable in our book. We love Matrix Clean Remix Dry Shampoo, because it’s safe for color-treated hair.
