Hairstory Purely Perfect Hair Cleansing Creme, $40

The company behind this brand has a very serious claim that makes you take notice: They guarantee that, no matter what kind of hair you have, you won’t need to use a conditioner, masque, detangler and most likely any other styling products in conjunction with this cleanser. If that promise doesn’t get you, the ingredient list (it’s packed with ingredients like aloe, flowers, evening primrose oil, peppermint and sunflower, to name a few) and the really unique clove-herbal scent, probably will.

7 / 13

Kérastase Bain Chroma Captive, $40

With an impressive ingredient lineup that includes protectors and hydrators like zinc gluconate, linseed oil, UV filter and vitamin E, this color-preserving shampoo is like insurance for your highlights in the summer (it’s also the luxe line’s first sulfate-free, color radiance–protecting shampoo).

8 / 13

PhytoPlage After-Sun Rehydrating Shampoo, $24

This major multitakser is a must for any summer travel. The coconut-based formula washes away salt, sand and chlorine on both the hair and body while leaving behind serious hydration.

11 / 13

Pureology Hydrate Cleansing Conditioner, $32

If you’ve ever tried this product’s predecessor (the Hydrate Shampoo), you are probably so loyal to it that you’ve sworn never to swap it out. This version isn’t meant to be a replacement, but swapping it in a few days a week is meant to offer a gentler cleanse, while still loading on all the hydrating, color-retaining benefits you’ve come to expect from the brand.

12 / 13

L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Brass Banishing Shampoo, $8

This deeply nourishing, lavender-colored shampoo fakes the look of freshly colored blonde hair after just one wash, while keeping the dreaded brassy look at bay.
