No two people are the same, and no two haircare products work the same on every hair type. From curly to straight, from dry hair to oily hair, to color-treated and everything in between, your hair type has unique needs.  Just any formula isn’t going to address what your scalp needs to be healthy and your hair to be shiny.

Check out what works well in shampoo bar formulas based on hair type.

Shampoo Bar for Curly Hair

If you have curly hair, look for moisture-rich formulas such as those containing shea butter. These hydrating ingredients work well to keep your curls looking their best. Our 2in1 Moisturizing Oatmeal Shampoo Bar is crafted with shea butter and oatmeal. These ingredients soothe the scalp and deeply nourish hair while providing a deep clean. This formula works great with natural hair and any hair types in need of extra hydration and nourishment!

Shampoo Bar for Oily Hair

For oily hair, the shampoo bar formula needs to rely less on what oils are in it and more on a clean-feeling formula that removes oil. Look for shampoo bars that remove excess oil and product buildup such as the Scalp Soothing Tea Tree & Mint Shampoo Bar.

Shampoo Bar for Colored Hair

If you have color-treated hair, you know a gentle formula is needed to keep hair looking its best. This is where our color-safe formula in the Balanced Clean Lavender & Orange Blossom Shampoo Bar comes in. You will come away with freshly washed hair that you know will stay your intended color for longer.

Best Shampoo Bar for Fine Hair

Fine hair has many traits, but being known for having natural volume isn’t one of them. A shampoo bar that adds fullness and volume such as our Volumizing Grapefruit & Rosemary Shampoo Bar may be a good option for those with fine hair.
