There are hair care and skin care products galore for women. Which ones do you need to look your best?

Grooming Essentials for Women: Skin and Hair Care Products

Must-Have Hair Care Products for Women

When it comes to hair care, Jet Rhys, owner of the Jet Rhys Salon in San Diego, says a clarifying shampoo is an essential for anyone who uses heavy styling products on a regular basis. He recommends using this type of hair care product once a week to get rid of buildup. It also helps to restore softness and shine. A wide-tooth comb is a good choice for getting out knots after the shower. It’s less damaging than a brush on wet hair, which is particularly vulnerable to damage.

Persia also suggest including these hair care products on your shelves:

  • Shampoo for every day and another for deep cleansing
  • Light "detangler" for every day and deep conditioner for a monthly deep conditioning treatment
  • Shower cap if you’re skipping a shampoo
  • Head band or clips to keep hair away from your face during washing
  • Gel, mousse, or leave-in conditioner, depending upon your hair type
  • Brushes, combs, and other styling tools
  • Styling products for after blow drying, such as wax, mud, paste, or hairspray
