Which Shampoo & Conditioner Duo Is Right For Me?

The structure of your hair, your hair challenges or needs, and your scalp type will tell you a lot about what types of products and ingredients will work best for you. Whatever your #hairgoals, we’ve got the right shampoo & conditioner duo for the job. Scroll down for a comparison of our 4 unique duos to choose with confidence. We’ve even included a customer review and pro tips from our founder, Boris, and COO, Regina, for each!


*Ideal For: All Hair Types

Our first ever launch (2009) and now a multiple award winner and cult-favorite!

UltraShine delivers amazing performance for straight hair, hair with a range of volume needs, and fine hair curlies. The luxurious shampoo boasts unparalleled lathering power, provides balancing cleansing using our specialized clean ingredients, and visibly smooths and increases shine and elasticity, while transforming texture, improving hair health, and balancing pH levels. The conditioner has a light yet hydrating touch that will not weigh hair down. 

A unique blend of nourishing antioxidants, plus amino and fatty acids restore hair from the inside out, while providing anti-aging benefits. 

“I absolutely love this shampoo and conditioner! I tried the deluxe sample sizes, and after finishing those I bought the Healthy Hair Trio that includes the leave-in conditioner spray - after several months of use and loving how the products make my hair look shiny, feel soft and smooth, and smell nice, I’ve decided to upgrade to the liter size!! This was an investment, but I only need to use a few pumps each time I wash. The shampoo gets foamy which can be hard to find in a natural shampoo, and I really enjoy the thicker, creamy feel of the conditioner. Both smell lovely, a nice fresh scent!” Taylor, Real Life #EVOLVher

Pro Tip: Happy hair starts with a healthy scalp so make sure to include a deep scalp massage when you wash. —B

Pro Tip: Our conditioners are unique in that they are absorbed immediately by the hair. To optimize performance, keep a wide tooth comb in your shower to comb conditioner through each and every time. —R

Try UltraShine in travel size, full size or liter, start your journey with our Smooth Discovery Kit, or upgrade to the Healthy Hair Trio for the best value.


*Ideal For: Wavy Or Curly Hair

Calling all wavies, curlies, and kinkies for this duo!

Because textured hair craves moisture and should not be stripped of its beneficial oils, our SmartCurl Hydrating Wash provides dialed down, gentle cleansing to maintain the natural oils that curlies need, while infusing essential nutrients for maximum hydration.

For the Hydrating Wash, we dialed up the moisture and unique fatty acids to maximize natural curl formation and smoothness - it's perfect for those that struggle with dryness and frizz.  

Together, they result in increased strength, shine, and softness, plus easy to manage, bouncy, and frizz-free waves and curls.

In the last few years we’ve added to our curl family with additional 100% clean salon-performance products that optimize curls for all: the SmartCurl Leave-in Conditioner, and two powerhouse styling products - SuperCurl Defining Cream and WonderBalm Magic For Curls.

"My curls are so happy! I have spent the last decade trying to find a decent shampoo and conditioner for my curls. These products are revolutionary! You don't need very much and my hair is so soft, less frizzy and my curls are very defined. Even my husband is addicted to this stuff! So happy to finally find a shampoo and conditioner that works!" —Emily, Real Life #EVOLVher

Pro Tip: For even more moisture and to prevent frizz, use our UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque once a week and/or cocktail it with SmartCurl Conditioner (½ and ½) every time you wash. —B

Try SmartCurl in travel size, full size or liter, start your journey with our Curls Discovery Kit, or upgrade to the Healthy Curls Trio for the best value.


*Ideal For: Color-Treated Hair Of Any Type Or Texture

The key to protecting your color investment is to choose the right shampoo and conditioner that will equally moisturize and gently cleanse. Sulfates and harsh shampoos can make color fade faster and because colored hair tends to get dryer, you’ll want to choose a color safe, hydrating duo to fight fading and maintain softness and health.

SmartColor, our richest duo yet, gently cleanses color treated hair and increases color retention for extended peak color life by infusing vital nutrients deep into every strand. Additional amped up small chain amino and fatty acids aid in the elimination of breakage and frizz, while restoring every strand to optimal health and combating the rigors of color to maximize smooth texture and lustrous shine.

Bonus: SmartColor counteracts your hair’s porosity* to better deposit dye for more even tone and longer lasting color.

*Porosity refers to gaps and holes in the hair’s cuticle that make it harder for your hair to retain moisture or get even tone when coloring.  

“Soft hair AND color protection - YES! This is my new desert island product duo! I have long, thick, wavy hair that frizzes easily and this tames it beautifully. The lather is light and doesn't strip while the scent is an intoxicating citrus. The conditioner is ultra moisturizing and really helps to define my curls and keeps my ends from feeling dry. I find that I only need to wash my hair twice a week and I always look forward to it now! I love that the products are non-toxic and gluten-free. So happy I found this line. Thank you for making these amazing green products!” —Elaine, Real Life #EVOLVher

Pro Tip: Many of our salon stylist partners use our UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque as a pre-color treatment and you can do the same at home. For beautiful, longer lasting color without the damage, simply apply the masque on the day you color and don’t rinse it out! —B

Pro Tip: This duo is perfect for hair experiencing the rigors of color - with the ultimate in protection from damage or dryness that often results. Pair it with the SmartStart Leave-In Conditioner and the UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque to protect your color investment and experience your silkiest, smoothest, and healthiest hair ever. —R

Try SmartColor in travel size, full size or liter, start your journey with our Protect Your Color Discovery Kit, or upgrade to the Healthy Color Trio for the best value. 


*Ideal For: Anyone with fine or flat hair that has challenges with oiliness and/or lack of volume.

The first of its kind two-step regimen that eliminates the need for an in-shower conditioner, this game-changing volumizing duo promotes hair and scalp health without being damaging or drying to hair. It hydrates and detangles strands, balances pH, and detoxifies and nourishes the scalp, while being weightless. The two products work synergistically together to deliver never-before-seen-results. 

"I am so glad that I tried this new InstaVolume Shampoo and Elixir duo. I didn't realize how flat my hair was, but now that I've tried this product, it's amazing how much more volume and body it gives my hair. I also like that it keeps my fine, oily hair feeling cleaner for longer. I have officially converted to forever using InstaVolume! Thank you EVOLVh for making products that are all natural and highly functional." —Jasmine, Real Life #EVOLVher

Pro Tip: If you struggle with hair that goes flat due to excessive oiliness, and cannot get to next day hair without washing - this duo will both provide volume and keep the oiliness at bay with a soft and touchable result. SmartVolume Leave-in lovers might want to try the InstaVolume Elixir on days when you’re looking for even more amped up volume. And for even MORE volume try our InstaVolume Volumizing Mousse—R

Try InstaVolume in travel size, full size or liter, purchase both steps as a duo, or upgrade to the liter duo



I use the ultrashine shampoo but not the conditioner(it doesn’t work for me) I only use the smart start leave in conditioner and I love it. I have a lot of gray hair and its straight. Do you think I should change to the smart volume leave in conditioner. Also do you sell the liter bottle of ultrashine shampoo without the regular conditioner. Let me know because need to order soon. Thanks!


Have been using your shampoo and conditioner for 2 years and really like it. But I am wondering if I am using the correct one. I have thin hair and have it colored every 4 – 6 weeks. I have been using the ultra shine shampoo with conditioner. It tends to have a dry look to it so don’t know if that is because I am experiencing hair loss or the product type not correct.
