If you're not completely sold on your current shampoo and conditioner, our editors are here to give you some inspiration by sharing the shampoos and conditioners that we keep stocked in our own showers.

Whether you have fine hair or thick hair, are looking for a clarifying formula or one to keep your highlights looking their best, there are shampoos and conditioner recommendations for many different hair types and needs on this list. Read on to see the shampoos and conditioners that our editors swear by for keeping our locks looking their best.

OUAI Fine Shampoo + Conditioner Set

"I can really tell it doesn’t weigh down my roots and leaves my hair feeling like it has more volume. When I think about it, it makes total sense to wash for your hair type!"

Oribe The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo



“I have recently had issues with my everyday shampoo and conditioner not being enough to really get my hair clean (a problem when you have to use a lot of product), but my stylist recommended this clarifying shampoo,” says Senior Digital Food Editor Kimberly Holland, “and it has changed my world.” She continued, “I use it about once a week, in rotation with my standard shampoo and conditioner. It really cleans the roots without stripping my hair's natural moisture, and it helps me stretch between washes.”
