A Winning Shampoo and Conditioning Sidekick

Abba True Shine ConditionerI am usually not a big fan of the matchy-matchy, but I do believe in using a shampoo and conditioner duo dedicated to your particular hair texture and type from time to time. Whether your hair is straight or curly, black, brown or blonde, color-treated or thinning, or a combination of these, there is a specific set out there tailored for your individual hair concerns and needs.

Using a shampoo and its conditioning cousin together on a regular basis actually increases the benefits of each, and really gives your hair that one, two punch it needs. Over time my hair gets ‘used to’ certain products so I tend to switch back and forth between brands every few weeks, but I always keep the following (from the straight hair section) in my shower rotation. There is a reason for the matching names, they work together – what a concept right? Check out these product lines, they definitely do not disappoint:

Silky, smooth and straight: Pureology Super Straight, Abba True Shine (pictured above), L’anza Strait-Line, Frederic Fekkai Glossing.

Davines Love Curl Enhancing ConditionerCurls, twirls and waves: Davines LOVE Curl Enhancing (pictured left), Bumble and bumble Curl Conscious, Abba True Curls.

My hair has “natural” highlights (shhh!): CHI Ionic Color Protector, Pureology,

Thinning, flat or fine: Murad Professional Treatment, Biolage Bodifying Volumatherapie, Nioxin.

So many of us have a combination of hair concerns and styling needs and the good news is there are plenty of choices out there. Thanks to focused formulations and innovative ingredients we can each find our own dynamic duo. See? Sometimes matchy-matchy is a good thing.
