Here's how to mix and match your shampoo and conditioner to maintain luscious locks — and hair cocktailing tips

Now it’s all about mixing and matching to fix your hair woes, depending on your needs.

“Target your primary concern with conditioner, which has a stronger formula, and your secondary concern with shampoo,” explains Sophie Ruggiero, education expert for System Professional.

“For example, if your main problem is that your locks are fragile and your second is that your hair is dry, use a conditioner that repairs damage and a shampoo that targets hydration.”
