Dry Hair, Itchy Scalp
While many factors can contribute to a dry, itchy scalp, choosing a light, cleansing shampoo is one of the best ways to balance natural oil production. Harsh surfactants can strip the hair and scalp of its protective oils resulting in flakiness and irritation. In the following formulas, you'll find gentle, sulfate-free surfactants and nourishing ingredients like Hemp oil, Squalene, Rice Protein, and Shea Butter.
Oily Scalp & Hair
You may be tempted to wash your hair frequently or use more clarifying shampoo formulas with an oily scalp. However, in response to excessive cleaning, your scalp typically will produce even more oil to compensate for the lost natural oils and nutrients. These shampoos and conditioners are great for those looking for a squeaky clean feel, light conditioning, and more volume without over-doing it.

Oily Scalp w/ Dry Ends
These moisturizing formulas can balance the oil production on your scalp, helping you go longer between washes. We typically recommend giving your hair about 3-5 days to train your scalp to stop overproducing oils. Once your scalp adjusts, you won't want to go back to clarifying formulas that often rob your hair of its natural moisture and nutrients. Both conditioner bars are detangling and ultra-moisturizing.
Fine, Flat Hair
Looking to add volume to your hair? Try these formulas that use gentle, plant-based surfactants to clarify and remove build-up that can make hair feel heavy. They also contain peppermint and rosemary oils, which are known to promote hair growth. The matching conditioners provide light moisturization without the weight of a deep conditioner.
Curls, Coils, & Texture
To keep curls, coils, and textured hair looking healthy, using products designed to moisturize and replenish the hair is essential. Hair with a heavier curl pattern is naturally dryer, so balancing natural oil production helps reduce frizz and strengthen the hair's natural shape. Bonus: the following formulas contain only Curly Girl-approved surfactants, too!
Blonde & Silver
These Enlightening Bars are formulated to eliminate brassiness in light hair shades. Blue tansy oil and cool violet tones neutralize unwanted yellowing, promoting bright, cool illumination for blonde hair. This sulfate-free shampoo bar creates an abundant lather and, like our other bars, is pH-balanced to be mild, non-irritating, and safe for color-treated hair.
