– Over the course of every day, your hair is exposed to impurities that dull its color, give it a greasy sheen and leave behind unpleasant odors. Without cleansing, these impurities will gradually build up on your tresses and rob them of their natural beauty. Fortunately, it is easy to eliminate these impurities through the use of the salon shampoos we offer at drugstore.com.

How do Salon Shampoos Work?

Salon shampoos contain surfactants that allow sweat, dirt, styling product residue and other impurities to be easily washed away with water. As salon quality products, the formulas contain potent ingredients that make them so effective that they are suitable for professional use. Traditionally, these types of shampoos were only sold in salons, but now, you can find many of today's popular brands here at drugstore.com.

Daily Shampoo

The most basic form of salon shampoo is the daily shampoo. These products are often ideal for all hair types and are gentle enough to be used every day without stripping moisture out of the locks. Products differ in terms of the ingredients found in their formulas as well as in their fragrances. Daily shampoos are typically followed by daily conditioners produced by the same brand or another.

Specialty Shampoos

Although daily shampoos are perfect for many people, some men and women require specialty shampoos to help them overcome hair care concerns or protect their tresses. Color treated shampoos are one of the most popular of specialty shampoo varieties. These formulas remove impurities from the hair without lifting away the pigments left behind by hair color treatments. The color-safe shampoos are recommended for anyone with dyed or color treated hair, regardless of what type of hair coloring was used. By using a color treated shampoo, you can extend the life of semi-permanent and demi-permanent color. Plus, the shampoos often contain special conditioning agents to help soften and repair locks that are damaged from permanent hair coloring.

Shampoos That Nourish Damaged Hair

Hair that is damaged due to frequent chemical treatments, the sun or styling with blow dryers, curling irons, flat irons and similar thermal tools often benefits from smoothing shampoos. The ingredients found in smoothing formulas help to reduce frizz, which often plagues dry and damaged hair. To enhance the effectiveness of smoothing shampoos, deep conditioners, leave-in conditioners and frizz-fighting serums can be used as well.

Curl Defining, Volumizing, and Dandruff Shampoos

A number of other specialty salon shampoos are available to meet certain hair care needs. Curl defining shampoos help women with naturally curly or wavy tresses better shape and style their hair. These products also contain ingredients that soften curls and fight against frizz. Volumizing shampoos lift the hairs at the roots and widen the strands to give fine, limp hair more body and bounce. Dandruff shampoos contain over-the-counter medicinal ingredients or natural extracts that soothe dry skin, exfoliate scalp flakes and help prevent flakiness from returning in the future.

No matter what your hair type, drugstore.com has a salon shampoo that is perfect for your needs. See what a difference professional quality products can make in the health and appearance of your locks. Explore our salon shampoos collection and find the right formula for you.
