We all love that just out of the salon feeling, but what haircare products should we use in between appointments? What are the best brands to clean, condition, tame and style? Let Modera’s editors help you!

Haircare Products: Best Shampoos

The best shampoo really depends on what kind of hair you have. Let’s focus on the most difficult challenge — curly hair. If you’ve got curls, you know that it’s hard to keep it from looking frizzy and drying out. That’s because oils from the scalp don’t travel easily down the hairshaft like straight hair. A good shampoo for curly hair is Bumble and Bumble’s Curl Conscious Smoothing Shampoo, available at Sephora. Don’t want to spend the big bucks on shampoo? Just look for any shampoo with several of these key ingredients — wheat germ oil, shea butter, nut oils, silicones and glycerin.

Condition Your Color

Keeping your hair in good condition will not only keep your hair feeling soft, it will help your color stay in and look fresher for a longer time. The newest haircare products color while they condition! Take Evo’s Fabuloso Colour Intensifying Conditioner. Once a week application is all it takes to brighten up your tresses between professional coloring. It is available in Platinum Blonde, Chestnut and Purple Red, and runs about $35 a bottle. Looking to spend less? Choose haircare products with protein-based ingredients like silk amino acids, soy extract and wheat.

Best Hairspray

You need light control without the look of a stiff 80′s hairwall (remember those?) Some of the newest haircare products out there are hairsprays you can brush. Try Shaper Zero Gravity, sold at many salons, or a more affordable product that Modera found — Pantene Beautiful Lengths Anti-Humidity Hairspray. At only 6 bucks for a 17-ounce canister, this is one of those haircare products you can afford to use everyday!
