The right shampoo for your hair type
Shampoos work by cleansing hair of dirt and oil. Picking the correct shampoo is all about the ingredients. Extra tip: More shampoo is not better. A half-dollar sized dollop is usually adequate, perhaps a bit more for longer hair. As far as being instructed to "rinse and repeat" by nearly every shampoo bottle in the industry? Don’t waste your time and money. If you did a good job the first time around, there’s simply no need. As far as what shampoo to buy, beauty experts tout Pantene as the best basic shampoo on the market. We tend to agree, having tried dozens of different shampoos from the fabulously pricey to the basics. Check out their various products from moisturizing to volumizing.

Unless you have baby fine hair that goes limp at the sight of creamy conditioners, it is imperative to develop the habit of conditioning your hair after each shampoo. Hair pros will tell you conditioner can help repair heat & chemical-damaged hair. The truth is conditioners also protect your hair from these things, as well as harsh brushings. The moisturizing agents found in conditioners have the added benefit of coating the hair, leaving it softer and tangle-free. Want to spend less time brushing out long wet hair? Condition the ends. Your comb will zip right through.

A wide-toothed comb
Never use a brush to comb out wet hair. A wide-toothed comb is the only hair tool that should touch your wet head.

A blowdryer
Never underestimate the power of a good blowdryer. The more powerful your dryer, the better. A strong blowdryer, like the pro favorite, Tourmaline, (see compare prices link below) will speed drying time, which reduces the time your hair is exposed to damaging heat. If you have thick hair, you'll want a dryer with at least 1875 watts. If you have finer hair, 1500 watts should do an adequate job.

Volumnizing mousse or spray OR straightening balm
Volumizing products are a Godsend for those of us with fine hair. Spray it on your roots and Voila! Alll of a sudden you have volume! Got coarse hair? Skip this product & buy the balm, which will calm down those frizzies.
