Color Treated Hair

Most women color their hair at some point in their lives. Coloring your hair can lead to dry hair and damage to the hair shaft. Often, hair color will fade more quickly than it should because of the harshness of a shampoo. To combat these challenges, you should use a shampoo that is specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Usually these products feature a mild formula and extra moisturizers to help preserve your color and protect your hair.

L'Oreal EverPure ($5.99) gently cleanses color-treated hair as it adds softness, shine and manageability. The fresh, clean scent isn't unlike many salon varieties. In short, it's a great find for the price.

For just a couple of dollars more, you can try The John Frieda Collection (prices vary by product), a line that includes shampoos specially formulated for blondes, brunettes, and redheads. Each formula includes ingredients that keep hair looking healthy and glossy. They also contain specific ingredients that impart brilliance and highlights to natural and color-treated hair.

When it comes to mid-priced shampoos for color-treated hair, Matrix Biolage Color Care Colorcaretherapie Shampoo ($14.99) is an excellent choice. Gentle cleansing is a key element for keeping color treated hair in great shape. Products like Matrix Biolage use natural ingredients like soy protein and ginkgo biloba that nourish your hair.

Volume-Challenged Hair

Limp and flat hair is a problem for many women. People with fine hair have thinner hair shafts, which makes it hard for the hair to hold a style, and causes it to fall flat at the first sign of humidity. When it comes to purchasing shampoo for fine hair, you'll want to avoid anything that weighs the hair down. That means anything with heavy moisturizers. Volumizing shampoos are formulated to be lightweight and non-greasy; some also include ingredients that plump the hair shaft for a (temporary) thicker look.
