You wouldn’t wait until the weather is freezing cold to get out your jeans and cozy sweaters, right? Well, don’t put off stocking up on products for dry hair until your locks are straw-level parched. Wondering which products will keep your strands feeling soft and hydrated? Take a look at our top picks!

Why Choosing the Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry Hair Is an Absolute Must

Some products can resurrect the feeling of hydrated, healthy hair. But why wait until you need total hair rehab? Dry hair products (that means products specifically formulated for dry hair) will prevent the feeling of crispy strands and keep your mane in fighting form.

Sure, cooler weather, lack of humidity, and indoor heating can all make your hair feel dry, and cause limpness and flyaways. And everyone loves a nice smooth blowout for fall, which tends to cause the appearance of damage if done regularly. Another common cause of dry autumn hair? Your mane might be suffering a serious post-summer hangover.

Our pro stylist in res, Natalie, is here to offer her expert picks on the best shampoo and conditioner for dry hair by hair type. And, they are divided by hair type so you fine-hair beauties don't get weighed down and thick-hair beauties get the richness you need. Seriously, run (don’t walk) to these recommendations. They’ll do your hair all kinds of favors.
