It’s safe to say that no one wants dry hair, but it isn’t always easy to avoid. While you may want to limit heat or skip coloring sessions to avoid drying out your strands, that can only do so much if you’re not using the right shampoo and conditioner.
If dry hair is your main concern, you definitely want to look for a system that can deeply hydrate your hair and lock in moisture. So, if you’re ready to make dry, thirsty hair a thing of the past, we’ve got you covered. Ahead, we’ve compiled a list of the best shampoos and conditioners for dry hair so you never have to worry about lifeless and parched tresses again. Silky, hydrated and healthy-looking hair is just around the corner.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Lifeless Hair
If you have dry, lifeless hair, it’s certain that your strands are in need of some serious TLC. Enter the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Hyaluron + Plump Hydrating Shampoo, Paraben-Free and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Hyaluron + Plump Hydrating Conditioner, Paraben-Free. Together, along with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Hyaluron + Plump Moisture Plump Serum, Paraben-Free, the system revives flat, dehydrated hair in a single wash. This trio is formulated with hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and deeply re-plump dry strands for noticeable bounce, body and shine.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Color-Treated Hair
Color-treated hair and bleach-damaged strands can lack moisture without the proper hair care products and this can lead to damage, stiff hair and breakage. To give your colored-treated strands a pick-me-up try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Strengthening Color Care Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Bond Strengthening Color Care Conditioner. This reparative system works to strengthen hair inside and out by reinforcing weak hair bonds. With each wash, hair feels softer and smoother as this duo works to protect hair from future damage.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Damaged Hair
Dry, damaged tresses, need an intensely reparative system that is going to address every sign of hair distress which is why we recommend the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Conditioner. This impressive, strengthening duo contains protein and ceramides to target the five most common signs of hair damage — split ends, weakness, rough texture, dullness and dehydration. If that’s not enough to win you over, one whiff of the creamy, floral scent will definitely do it.
Editor’s tip: Once a week, switch out the conditioner for a hair mask like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm to give your strands an extra boost of hydration.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Brittle Hair
Big shock — dry, brittle hair needs every bit of moisture it can get. This means finding a shampoo and conditioner that can deeply hydrate strands without weighing them down. The L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Deep Nourish Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Deep Nourish Conditioner are perfect for the job and contain nourishing apricot oil to offer vital hydration. Additionally, this duo is safe on color-treated hair and it will leave your strands feeling silky and soft.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Curly Hair
Dry, curly hair calls for a shampoo and conditioner that can lock in moisture and define curls without weighing them down. To achieve just that, we recommend the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Curls Moisture Push Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Curls Moisture Seal Conditioner. The pair contains hyaluronic acid and castor oil to hydrate and nourish curly hair, revealing bouncy, defined, and lustrous curls with less frizz. Once a month, switch out the shampoo for the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Curls Micellar Shampoo to deeply cleanse the scalp and remove product buildup.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Flaking Hair
Managing dandruff is no easy task but the right shampoo and conditioner can help to streamline the process. The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Scalp Care + Detox Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Scalp Care + Detox Conditioner contain menthol and neem leaf extract to purify and detox the scalp of product buildup, excess oil and flakes without stripping hair. Once a week, add the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Scalp Care + Detox Scrub to your routine before you shampoo and condition to gently exfoliate your scalp.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Long Hair
To help you achieve your long hair goals, we love the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo for Long, Damaged Hair and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Conditioner for Long, Damaged Hair. This repairing duo is formulated with a blend of hair-healthy vitamins like B3 and B5 to reduce breakage and seal split ends so you can focus on preserving your length. Additionally, it helps to instantly detangle and add shine without ever weighing down your hair and the sweet, fruity scent helps keep your strands fresh.
