Here are some shampoos and conditioners that you can rely on for gorgeous hair, and where to find them.

Coloured Hair

Curvy Hair

A shampoo and conditioner that is available in most pharmacies and some supermarkets.

It is sulphate free, hydrating, and great for locking in moisture giving that silky smooth look.

Thin/Fine Hair

Thin and fine hair often gets greasy quicker than other hair types and because of this the shampoos that are highly moisturising and nourishing can sometimes work against thin hair by weighing it down making it flat and oily.

This combo by L’Oréal is designed to lift the hair at the root for a volumised effect.

The shampoo contains salicylic acid to purify and control oils in the scalp.
