While “out with the old and in with the new” is something we say at the beginning of every year, we’re extra excited to leave 2020 behind. This year taught us that we can’t predict what any year will bring, but we can always predict that amazing hair is in your future.
While we’re sure you have a full list of new year's resolutions to commit to, there’s no reason not to also throw a few hair goals into the mix.
If you’re wondering what hair product you need to jumpstart your hair care routine, let your 2021 hair horoscope be your guide! From products that tackle winter hair woes to must-have styling products, keep scrolling to discover the formula you need based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo
As the most competitive sign in the zodiac, you rarely settle for less than perfect results—especially when it comes to your mane. For this year, Aries, you’ll want to focus on giving your strands the reset it needs so it can shine. Use a clarifying shampoo like Redken Detox Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo to remove any build-up, residue, or excess oil from your hair.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Kérastase Blonde Absolu Serum Cicanuit
You’re the most loyal sign in the zodiac, Taurus, and you’re particularly dedicated to your hair routine. If your busy schedule leaves you unable to stick to your shampooing routine, however, you’ll need a dry shampoo on hand. We recommend Matrix Total Results Miracle Extender Dry Shampoo. This formula refreshes hair and absorbs oil to revive your second-day strands.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Redken Deep Clean Dry Shampoo
You’re adaptable, Gemini, and you understand that as seasons change, so does the condition of your mane. If your strands are extra dry, add a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like Pureology Hydrate Shampoo And Conditioner to your routine. This system deeply hydrates dry, color-treated hair while the brand’s exclusive AntiFade Complex protects the vibrancy of your salon color.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Netsu Design Blow-Dry Cream
When it comes to your hair goals, Cancer, you’re persistent—and if you have curly hair, you’ll want to kick off 2021 with your ringlets looking their best. Pick up a styling product like Mizani True Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion. This formula, made with coconut, olive, and marula oil, leaves curls soft, shiny, and bouncy while helping to restore them to their natural shape and texture.
Leo (July 23-August 22): L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Volume Envy Extra Mousse
You love being the center of attention, Leo, and you’ll want your hair to look it’s best heading all throughout 2021. If you’re dealing with dryness, however, don’t worry! A formula like Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique Blow Dry Primer will protect your hair from heat damage as you style while nourishing and smoothing your strands.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Mizani Coconut Souffle Hair Moisturizer
You have a reputation for playing it safe, Virgo, but 2021 is the perfect time to try something new. If you’re used to sleek, polished hairstyles, add some texture into the mix. Use a hair paste, like Pureology Style + Protect Mess It Up Texture Paste to give any hairstyle soft texture, flexible hold, and shine.
Libra (September 23-October 22): Matrix Total Results High Amplify Root Up Wash Clarifying Shampoo
You’re easygoing, Libra, but don’t let your laid-back nature get in the way of properly caring for your hair. If there’s one product your mane needs to thrive in 2021, it’s a hair mask like Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Ultimate Reset Restorative Hair Mask. This mask can repair and restore very damaged hair that has undergone frequent bleaching, coloring, and heat styling.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Pureology Style + Protect Lock It Down Hairspray
When you set a goal, Scorpio, you see it through. For this year, make achieving your shiniest hair yet your number one priority. We recommend adding a shine-enhancing hair oil like L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Huile Originale to your routine. This formula softens, nourishes, protects against frizz, and adds shine.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): L'Oréal Professionnel Hair Touch Up Root Concealer
You’re independent, Sagittarius, and while you may love in-salon treatments, you also enjoy tackling your hair concerns on your own. If you’re looking for a way to manage your split ends between salon appointments, we recommend Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Split Ends Hair Treatment. This formula repairs, strengthens, and protects hair shine while reducing hair breakage, split ends, and damage from brushing.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Biolage Exquisite Oil Protective Treatment
You love to be in control, Capricorn, but you can’t predict when brassiness might ruin your precious hair color. If you’re trying to keep brass at bay between appointments, you’ll need a color-toning shampoo and conditioner system like Matrix Total Results Brass Off Shampoo And Conditioner. This system deposits blue-violet pigments to neutralize brassy undertones.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Kérastase Scrub Apaisant Deep Clean Fusio Dose Scrub
You’re an idealist, Aquarius, but when it comes to caring for your blonde, it’s time to get real. If your strands are showing signs of bleach damage, use a hair treatment like Redken Extreme Bleach Recovery Cica Cream Leave-In Treatment. This repairing leave-in treatment deeply nourishes the hair from the inside out to increase the resilience and strength of the hair in between lightening and highlighting services.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): Redken Extreme Length Leave-In Treatment With Biotin
You’re creative, Pisces, so it's essential to find a product that helps you bring all of your hairstyle ideas to life while also keeping your strands healthy. We recommend Biolage Hydra Foaming Styler. This conditioning hair mousse adds body and natural movement to any hairstyle while strengthening hair and adding moisture.
