7 Shampoo Staples for Back-To-School


Where did the summer go?  It’s that time again!   Start the school year off with some shampoo staples every dorm room demands.  Here are some tried and true beauty basics for back-to-school. Whether it’s greasy hair, dry shampoo, or brightening the blonde, read on for some “must have” products that can take your hair from eh to ahhhhhhh.

Dashing Out the Door - Every girl and guy can freshen their hair in seconds!  Gym, jog, or just being lazy… without a good wash your hair can look a bit crazy.  Waste no time, get rid of the grime with a couple of cans of either Batiste (best for those on a budget) or Paul Mitchell’s Invisible Dry Shampoo available in Blonde or Brunette.  

Hair Feels Like Shredded Wheat – If your hair feels like frayed rope?   Hydrate the hell out of it with L’Anza Healing Moisture Tamanu Cream Shampoo and L’Anza Healing Moisture Kukui Nut Conditioner.  Both are formulated with ingredients which will seal in moisture and protect the hair but won’t weigh the hair down.  Blonde and bone dry? Forever Blonde Shampoo by Paul Mitchell is formulated with KerActive protein which guards against breakage and also safflower oleosomes which restore moisture and elasticity. Say goodbye to dry!

Too Oily- You wash your hair frequently but can’t escape the greasiness, consider MilkShake Normalizing Blend Shampoo, for normal or greasy scalp.  This delicate formula has active plant-base ingredients, essential oils and a balanced blend of non-aggressive surfactants that cleanse sebum and greasy residues deeply and gently.  Bye bye to build-up from sebum, this will have you feeling normal in no time.  

Keeping it Curly- Right now curls are back, and it’s always serious business keeping the frizz at bay.  DevaCurl Low Poo Delight and One Condition Delight are perfect for wavy to curly hair types.  This mild lather cleanser and weightless conditioner can keep your curls coiled and free of frizz.

Blonde Bombshell- Beware of the brass that creeps onto hair, a customer favorite for its ability to blast the brass is Shimmer Lights Shampoo Blonde & Silver.  This protein-enriched conditioning formula renews and refreshes faded highlights and ash-toned hair.  It also removes dull yellow undertones in gray/white hair as it puts the bling back into blonde, the great back into gray, and the sexy back into the silver. 

Preserving Pop Colors- Fading too fast?  Your midnight blue is looking like muddy waters?  Consider Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo, a sulfate-free shampoo which is formulated with Redken’s exclusive RCT Protein Complex to treat hair from the root, to the core, to the tip.  Redken’s Color Extend  Magnetics care system delivers amino-ions that attract the hair fiber to form a barrier to protect the hair from losing color; it’s lightweight and non-stripping you love your continued vibrant color.  No worries, the purple will stay perfect. 

Volume to the Rescue- Fighting flat hair?  Don’t freak out, consider Bed Head’s most advanced volumizing shampoo ever, Fully Loaded!  Give your limp locks volume that you can see and feel the difference.  Formulated with Uploader technology this shampoo puts the “big” hair back into action. 

In the end, whether it’s flat, frizz, or fading colored hair, start the school year off with taking charge of your No. 1 accessory, your HAIR!
