YOUR HAIR TO…
Everyone's hair needs something different to hit the "healthy and vibrant" level. That's a fact. Here to help: Shaun Brezanin and Pamela Lynch from the Design Team at Ulta Beauty, who give their recs on how to get your dream hair.
YOU WANT: Color That Pops
… and Gets You Noticed!
Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo
Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed Conditioner
Colored hair needs color-safe ingredients that keep hair healthy and hydrated. “This duo gently removes buildup while preserving the vibrancy of your color each and every wash,” says Shaun. “It also adds shine, moisturizes and strengthens.”
YOU WANT: Silky, Soft Strands
… that Shine all the Time
"These are packed with argan oil for shine and manageability," explains Pam. Softness comes from soy protein, which adds structure at the root, and arginine (a multi-faceted amino acid) for all-over health.
YOU WANT: To Say Farewell to Frizz
… and Look Oh-So Smooth
Frizz occurs from a lack of moisture in your hair and causes your strands to grab moisture from the air around it. That's why humidity makes matters worse. These products are packed with smoothing oils of camellia (to seal that hydration in), sesame (to retain your color) and shea butter (to fight damage). “They're powerhouses that tame any level of frizz for up to 48 hours,” says Shaun.
YOU WANT: To Boost Volume
… and flaunt major body
Panthenol is the magic ingredient here — it boosts volume, repairs damage, and improves shine and elasticity. "It helps repair those worn-down locks," explains Pam. "It really does it all: cleanses the scalp, thickens the hair shaft and is great for fuller-looking hair."
YOU WANT: You Want: Bouncy, Beautiful Curls
… from morning to night
DevaCurl No Poo Decadence Zero Lather
Ultra Moisturizing Milk Cleanser
DevaCurl One Condition Decadence
Ultra Moisturizing Milk Conditioner
This duo delivers moisture, strength and protection, and gently cleanses without stripping away the natural oils your curls need. "The unique formula (consisting of chufa milk and quinoa) provides moisture, protection and nourishment to any curl pattern," says Shaun. "You're left with soft natural curls ready to style any way you choose."
YOU WANT: Stronger, Healthier Hair
… that looks AND feels incredible
TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Avoine & Miel Nourishing Shampoo
TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Avoine & Miel Nourishing Conditioner
Split ends, extreme dryness and excessive oiliness — all signs of weak hair. We say no way to that! These favorites will help your hair get healthy ASAP. "These ingredients truly bring damaged hair back to life," explains Shaun. "They’re formulated with vitamin E, along with honey and oatmeal, to ensure strength, protection and a silky-smooth finish."
YOU WANT: Hydrated Hair
… and touchable softness
Shaun is obsessed with the 100% vegan ingredients. Pam loves that the shampoo gently cleanses with a rich lather and infuses hair with the essential hydration it needs. Bonus: It’s sulfate-free and won't strip your color. "This is a personal fave of mine because the natural extracts are soothing when it meets the hot water at the back of your neck," says Pam.
YOU WANT: You Want: To Banish Buildup
… and make styling easy
Redken Clean Maniac Micellar Clean-Touch Shampoo
Redken Clean Maniac Micellar Clean-Touch Conditioner
Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo
“It gently removes buildup and impurities, and repels odor,” Pam says of Clean Maniac Shampoo. Shaun swears by the Cleansing Cream: “I always use this on my guests before a color service to ensure even and consistent results,” he says. “It’s great for all hair types — it removes styling product buildup and hard water minerals from the hair.”
These goodies will give your hair the clean it needs. Now, on to your next pressing issue… how will you style it?
