Fast Fixes: The Best Shampoo for Your Hair Issues

by: Better Not Younger October 20, 2021 5 min read

BNY features 3 mature women with 3 different hair types and issues. From gray medium lenght hair to long wavy brown hair.

We all have a specific hair type and, as a result, different hair issues—so it makes sense that every woman’s go-to shampoo looks a little different. While shampoos that are sulfate- and paraben-free are one of the commonalities in our aging hair handbook, we recognize that our delicate tresses have unique needs. 

That’s why we designed a collection of hair cleansing products to cater to all the hair issues your aging tresses encounter, from strands that are flat and thin to curls that have lost their shine and bounce. Keep reading to learn all about our problem-solving sulfate-free shampoos and everything you need to know when choosing the right shampoo for you!


You Have: Thin, Fine Hair 


Hair Concerns: Lack of Fullness, Volume and Lift


As we age, hair loss and thinning is a common concern many women share—and it shows up as hair that lacks fullness, volume and lift. On top of all this, with age, our thin, fine hair becomes drier due to a decrease in sebum production, which contributes to breakage.

 

Fast Fix: Wake Up Call Volumizing Shampoo


Since we know that aging hair is already dry, we designed our lightweight volumizing shampoo to moisturize while gently cleansing delicate tresses. This means it won’t strip your hair of natural oils—unlike other volumizing shampoos that dry out the cuticle to achieve that “full effect.” The result is instant lift, volume and fullness, plus smoother, shinier strands!


Bonus Tip for Thin, Fine Hair


This shampoo strengthens thin strands, too! It’s clinically proven to reduce breakage by 95%—and when you pair it with our volumizing conditioner, that number jumps to 98%!


You Have: Gray or White Hair


Hair Concerns: Dull, Brassy, Weak Strands


Gray hair requires extra special care. The loss of melanin responsible for your new silver strands also leads to hair that’s drier, more brittle and that has a tendency to turn brassy or yellow from hot styling tools and environmental factors like UV rays and pollution, among other common issues. But your grays are gorgeous, and they deserve a shampoo that helps their brilliance shine!

 

Fast Fix: Silver Lining Purple Brightening Shampoo for Grey & White Hair


We designed our purple shampoo with a custom blend of ingredients including optical colorants to rebalance cool tones to brighten strands while gently cleansing, nourishing and strengthening. This shampoo also instantly hydrates and adds volume, fullness and lift to aging hair.

 

Bonus Tip for Gray or White Hair


Our Silver Lining Purple Butter Masque is the perfect second step to help deep condition and add instant silkiness and shine for smoother-looking strands and less frizz.

 

You Have: Curly Hair


Hair Concerns: Thin, Frizzy, Lifeless Curls


Aging curls experience the same signs of aging as other hair texture—and more. This means that in addition to becoming thinner, duller, more brittle and frizzier, they also are affected by gravity, which makes them droop more quickly due to the weakened state of the strands. The shape of the curl can also become altered because of hormonal changes.

 

Fast Fix: Bounce Back Super Moisturizing Shampoo for Curly Hair


Conditioning and strengthening your dry, aging curls was a top concern when creating our curly hair shampoo, which helps prevent breakage and supports bounce for more beautifully defined curls that stay fresher longer. Best of all, it removes excess oil from the scalp and product buildup from roots without drying out ends when washing your hair.

 

Bonus Tip for Curly Hair 


Knowing the right hairstyling and hair-care tips for achieving your most voluminous and lustrous curls is the other half of the battle. We’ve got all the secrets you need right here! Plus, achieve up to 24 hours of definition and frizz control when you use this shampoo as part of our 3-step curly hair regimen.

 

You Have: Dry, Damaged Hair


Hair Concerns: Course, Dry, Damaged Tresses


Even color-treated hair or tresses that have been processed and exposed to the damaging effects of hot styling tools and the environment can experience renewed softness and shine when washing your hair with the right shampoo.



Fast Fix: Second Chance Repairing Shampoo for Dry or Damaged Hair


We developed the solution to over-stressed hair with our repairing and moisturizing shampoo created with a custom blend of ingredients that includes argan and rice bran oils to help repair the inner strength of strands while boosting the health of your hair follicles. Plus, it adds and seals in moisture for gorgeous shine.

You Have: Hair That Needs a Fresh Start

 

Hair Concerns: Oily scalp and greasy, flat strands


Sometimes in between washing your hair your tresses need a refresh. A sweaty session at the gym or a lack of time to shampoo on a busy morning are all reasons your hair may need a little pick-me-up in between hair washings. When there’s no time to step into the shower, a dry shampoo hair product is exactly what your hair needs to bring it back to life.


Fast Fix: Fresh Start Scalp Renewing Dry Shampoo 

 

Our talc-free and noncomedogenic dry shampoo is the perfect hair cleansing product for refreshing hair in between hair washings by helping to eliminate an oily scalp and strands while naturally increasing volume, fullness and thickness. Designed to support scalp and hair health, this hair product improves the scalp condition and refreshes any hairstyle by absorbing excess oil and extending time between washes. It also dissolves quickly and easily in water, washing away product buildup and excess oil pre-shampoo without leaving any sticky residue.

 

Bonus Tip for Hair That Needs a Fresh Start

 

Dry shampoo does more than work wonders on your second- and third-day hair. It can add lift, texture and extra grip to just-washed tresses, which can often be resistant to holding styles.
