My Celebrity Life

The Perfect Shampoo for Every Hair Type

“Hair is everything. We wish it wasn’t so we could actually think about something else occasionally, but it is. It’s the difference between a good day and a bad day.” Truer words were never spoken than in Fleabag’s speech to maligned hairdresser Anthony.

But how do you avoid that bad hair day? As someone who’s been blessed (and sometimes cursed) with curly hair, I have a theory that you need to start with the basics, and by that I mean a great shampoo.

I’ve tried quite a few over the years, especially as I’ve also had varying degrees of dyed hair too, so I know that there are certain ones that I personally recommend. For any hair types that I can’t comment on, I’ve gone to the experts. Below, you’re bound to find a shampoo that suits you. Keep scrolling for more.

Best for Dry Scalps

My personal favourite for dry scalps is The Body Shop’s ginger shampoo, which has really rescued my dry lockdown scalp of late, but there are so many other brilliant ones on the market that range in price.

Best for Blonde Hair

Blonde hair—whether natural or highlighted—can always benefit from a great lightening shampoo. Olaplex No.4 is one of the recommended products for a reason: It repairs bonds while also cleansing the hair. It’s ideal for dyed hair.

Best for Afro Hair

On the best products for Afro hair, I spoke to Dizziak founder Loretta De Feo on what to look for. Essentially, you want an ultra-moisturising haircare product that also tends to the scalp. Dizziak is one of those products (it’s already picked up a cult following), but it’s also worth checking out other shampoos that are great for Afro hair.
