Best Haircare Products of the Year
Fortunately, these days, we no longer have just one narrow idea of “good hair.” Haircare brands in the United States are finally making diverse hair textures a priority. Whether you’re looking for a deeply-hydrating treatment or a hyper-specific formula, you’re likely to find something that suits you perfectly on the market. If you need some help picking a haircare product that you can add to your daily or weekly self-care routine, check out our suggested picks below.
SHAZ & KIKS Balancing Clay Cleanser
With fine hair, the line between conditioned and greasy can be rather… well, fine. While this waterless cleanser is suitable for pretty much all hair types, those with fine hair will appreciate how well the clay can absorb heavy oil while still keeping the scalp moist. What’s more, the product also has blueberry seeds, which act as an exfoliant and stimulant that helps encourage hair growth.
Veganmour GRO+ Advanced Replenishing Conditioner
Even if you’re not vegan or plant-based, it’s worth trying this product on your hair. The keratin-alternative conditioner helps close the cuticles of the hair for a shiny, sleek finish that is free of frizz. The conditioner also manages to seal in hydration without causing a ton of product build-up or weighing your hair down.
Odele Moisture Repair Shampoo
Most times, moisture is what keeps your hair vibrant and lustrous. This product has Keravis, a hair-strengthening protein complex, which seals strands offering plenty of shine, while quinoa (yes, the same kind you add to your salads) soothes and nourishes the scalp. It’s a very versatile product, given that it works incredibly well on normal hair and also on damaged, color-treated tresses. The best part is that it only costs about $12.
Living Proof Curl Conditioner
Conditioners for curly hair are tricky. They have to add enough moisture to add shape and shine to curls, but not so much that the curls are left with no definition. Fortunately, it seems like Living Proof’s curl conditioner is up to the task. The formula has a great smell, and it has the brand’s signature Health Curl Complex, which helps detangle the hair.
