If you’re looking for a quick way to level up the condition and appearance of your hair, how about taking another look at your shampoo? A simple switch to the best shampoo for your hair can make all the difference. Self-assessment is certainly do-able, but if you’re unsure about what’s going on with your hair, ask your stylist to diagnose and recommend the best shampoo for you. In the meantime, here are some guidelines for choosing the right formula.

Color Care Shampoo

You: You sort of remember the hair color you were born with, but who cares now? You love changing it up, and thanks to options like highlights and balayage and a full rainbow of hair color shades, you do just that regularly!

Your hair: Color-treated, lightened or both.

Choose: Biolage Color Last Shampoo for Color-Treated Hair

Why: Color-treated hair needs tender loving care. It’s best to look for a low pH formula that cleanses gentlywithout stripping away the color that represents an investment of your time and money. Color Last keeps colored hair looking fresh, vivid and clear and also helps repair damage.



Moisturizing Shampoo

You: Thirsty! When it comes to your hair, skin, body, nails, etc., you’re always in search of more moisture.

Your hair: Also thirsty! You notice your strands tend to be dull, prone to frizz and split ends and tough to manage.

Choose: BiolageHydra Source Shampoo for Dry Hair

Why: Think of moisturizing shampoo as a big gulp for your thirsty strands.It gets your hair clean without stripping the natural oils it needs to stay supple and shiny. Hydra Source is also inspired by the aloe plant, which knows a thing or two about retaining precious moisture.

Mega Moisturizing Shampoo

You: See “Moisturizing Shampoo” and multiply by 10!

Your hair: Thick, coarse and in need of loads of moisture, stat!

Choose: Biolage UltraHydra Source Shampoo for Very Dry Hair

Why: Extremely parched hair needsas much hydration as possible to maintain shine, luster and manageability. Ultra Hydra Source Shampoo is formulated with a quenching blend of aloe, cupuacu butter and apricot kernel oil to maintain optimum moisture balance and control dry, unruly hair.



Volumizing Shampoo

You: You’re so fine…and so is your hair. You’re always on the lookout for ways to make your hair look and feel fuller and maintain body longer.

Your hair: Tends to fall flat soon after it’s styled.And when the weather is humid, down it goes.

Choose:Biolage Volume Bloom Shampoo for Fine Hair

Why: Fine hair needs a lightweight shampoo that cleanses thoroughly while adding volume and shine. This one does the job, plumping strands and boosting the roots for longer-lasting styles.



Smoothing Shampoo

You: You live in fear of humidity and rain because they bring swollen hair and massive frizz.

Your hair: Dry, dull and fuzzy, especiallyin wet and humid conditions and when air-dried.

Choose: Biolage Smooth Proof Shampoo for Frizzy Hair

Why: Frizzy hair requires a two-pronged approach. First it needs loads of moisture to restore optimal moisture balance, suppleness and shine. Second, it needs protection from the humid atmospheric conditions that cause it to swell. Smooth Proof Shampoo delivers; it gently cleanses without drying hair, moisturizes and encapsulates each strand in a protective shield that discourages frizz.



Damage Repair Shampoo

You: A little sad, honestly, because you’ve overdone it with hot tools and bleach and now your hair is paying the price.

Your hair: Damaged, weak, fragile, breaking off.

Choose: Biolage Strength Recovery Shampoo

Why: As part of the new Biolage Strength Recovery system, this gentle, creamy formula cleanses without adding weight. Pair it with the Strength Recovery Conditioning Cream, which reduces breakage by 73 percent* after one use and leaves hair 3X stronger**.

Deep Cleansing Shampoo

You: Your bathroom looks like a beauty supply store—you’ll try any styling cream, gel, wax or spray you can get your hands on because you love to experiment with all kinds of styles.

Your hair: Too many styling products, over-conditioning or too-infrequent cleansing has led to unwanted build-up. Your hair appears flat and lacks shine. 

Choose: Biolage Clean Reset Normalizing Shampoo

Why: A deep cleansing shampoo, used when needed, will gently whisk away the buildup that’s weighing your hair down. Suitable for all hair types, Clean Reset will leave your hair and scalp feeling clean and refreshed. It’s also ideal to use before a hair color service because removing buildup ensures that color will go on more evenly, appear more vivid and last longer.



Oil Balancing Shampoo

You: Skipping a shampoo day is out of the question—you need to remove excess oil on the regular.

Your hair: Your scalp produces high amounts of oil which can lead to oily hair that tends to become weighted down.

Choose: Biolage Scalp Sync Cooling Mint Shampoo for Oily Hair and Scalp

Why: Scalp Sync Cooling Mint deep cleans oily scalp and hair and at the same time purifies bacterial buildup and soothes the scalp. Get ready for a delightful, fresh feeling thanks to the refreshing properties of mint leaf.



Treatment Shampoo

You: “What are those flakes on my sweater and why is my scalp so itchy?” you often wonder.

Your hair: Bacteria and inflammation are causing scalp irritation and flaking.

Choose: Biolage Scalp Sync Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

Why: Mint leaf calms the scalp and fights bacteria whilepyrithione zinc helps target dandruff, controls the appearance of visible flakes and relieves scalp irritation with continued use. Your hair will look and feel softer, cleaner and healthier.
