If your hair is oily, a volumizing shampoo can make a huge difference, according to Edward Tricomi, master stylist and co-founder of Warren-Tricomi Salons. And although it seems counterintuitive, Tricomi recommends washing oily strands every other day. “It gives the oil gland in the scalp a chance to rest,” he says. “Less frequent washing will help with an over-active oil gland, and in time should make a visible change in the hair.” Try Alterna Haircare Caviar Volume Shampoo, a sulfate-free formula that builds thickness and volume with a marine pumping complex while protecting color from root to tip.
