Normal Hair If you've ever suffered from weighed down strands or fought with coarse curls on a daily basis, you know that your hair has individual needs.

Normal Hair "It's always a good idea to target your hair's specific needs, but products that are 'for all hair types' can be great for someone who has normal, healthy hair," Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy celebrity stylist Jen Atkin told us. Your main concern is finding a formula that nourishes, smooths and detangles, like Oribe Signature Shampoo ($34,, which cleans hair with non-stripping coconut-, corn- and oat-derived cleansers. Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo ($6.49, is a sulfate-free formula with seaweed extract to balance strands' moisture level without stripping hair of its natural oils.

Other favorites are DevaCurl Low-Poo ($18.95,, a low-foaming, sulfate-free cleanser, of course, the curl expert, Ouidad's Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo ($14,
