Shampoo and conditioner are the baseline to any hair regimen. Together the pair readies manes for any and all styling paths by helping to prevent breakage, smooth the cuticle and detangle, among other benefits. “Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner for your client’s hair type is instrumental in creating the desired outcome,” says Mehgan Pearson, Sexy Hair artist. “Depending on the hair texture, the right product choice can help to enhance curls, reduce frizz, create volume, or even repair.” Here, current best-selling shampoo and conditioner duos that do serious prep.
