When it comes to your hair, it’s totally acceptable to be particular — after all, healthy, luscious hair can be a source of pride and joy! Healthy hair starts with a great shampoo though, and if your current formula just isn’t doing it for you anymore, chances are you’ve scrolled the shampoo aisle. “Overwhelming” is an understatement!

“Cleansing” this, “moisturizing” that — how are we supposed to know what actually works? First, it’s important to consider your hair type. Just as “someone good at everything is great at nothing”, a shampoo that’s “good for all hair types” isn’t great for any. You need a shampoo tailored to your unique hair type, texture and length, which isn’t easy to find unless your budget is over $50.

It may be April Fool’s Day, but we’re not fooling you — we found six shampoos that will have you wondering if they were designed for you (and only you). Check out the writer-tested winners below!

Clarifying Shampoo

If you have an oily scalp, meet your perfect match. Apple cider vinegar is the superstar ingredient in this bestselling shampoo that cleanses without stripping hair of moisture. No more sebum — just clean, shiny hair!
