Did your hair wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? It might be time to try a new shampoo! Solving major hair hassles can be as simple as using the right formula for your hair type. But with so many options, it can be difficult to know which one will work best for you. Here, five pro-approved picks that solve the most common hair woes.

Rusk PUREMIX Fresh Pomegranate Color Protecting Shampoo

Boost fading color with a pomegranate shampoo, like this one from Rusk. The fruit is a rich source of tannins (they help color pigments cling to strands) and antioxidants (they create a shield over hair to lock in dye molecules) that work together to make color last twice as long.

Avalon Organics Volumizing Rosemary Shampoo

Reverse thinning hair with a rosemary shampoo, like this one from Avalon Organics. “Rosmarinic acid in the herb increases circulation to the scalp, delivering oxygen-rich blood to hair follicles to promote new growth,” says New York City dermatologist Francesca Fusco, M.D., who specializes in hair care.

Artnaturals Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo

Revive lackluster locks with an apple cider vinegar shampoo, like this one from Artnaturals. The vinegar’s acetic acid removes shine-sapping product residue and also seals hair’s cuticle, says celebrity hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein. “This allows more light to reflect off of locks so they appear instantly more lustrous.”

Dove DermaCare Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Dryness & Itch Relief

Nix dandruff with a pyrithione zinc shampoo, like this one from Dove. According to Dr. Fusco, this antifungal compound not only kills yeast (a common cause of dandruff ) to restore scalp health, it also has anti-inflammatory properties that help sooth irritation and nix flaking.

Aveeno Sunflower Oil Blend Shampoo

Fatty acids in the flower-derived oil penetrate deeply to increase moisture levels and hydrate parched locks from the inside out. Even better? Its unique compounds fortify strands and repair damage after just one wash.
