BEST SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER FOR CURLY HAIR 2015 WINNER 2015 and 2009
Kérastase Nutritive Bain | Oléo-Curl | Oléo Relax Masque
Instead of leaving tight ringlets shellacked, crispy, or greasy, these crystal-clear liquids lay down frizz with shorea and palm oils, says N.Y.C. stylist Gabrielle Corney. “If you’re going to straighten your hair, you’ll get an easier blow-dry.” If not, curls are left light and springy and parched ends are quenched.

BEST SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER FOR DRY HAIR WINNER 2015
Shu Uemura Art of Hair Moisture Velvet Shampoo and Conditioner
Camellia oil—an extract the company says geishas used to smooth and soften their hair—fortify brittle strands. We just know it works. Hairstylist Racquel Martuscelli, who has “very damaged, thick hair” lets it “air dry with minimal product” when she lathers with this. “It gives you those really polished, glassy strands.” Konnichiwa, good hair days.

BEST 2015 FOR COARSE, FRAGILE HAIR WINNER 2015
Both the paraben-free shampoo and the conditioner are as flexible as a lifelong yogi: They amp up elasticity for hair that is relaxed, curly, kinky, or wavy. The conditioner can be rinsed out or left in. And it offers serious shine, “whether you’re wearing your hair curly or styling it straight,” says N.Y.C. hair colorist Melissa Bridgers.
