If you've spent more time than you'd like to admit waxing poetic over the idea of having smooth and silky hair, then all of the talking is just simply wasting your time. People all were born with different hair types. If your hair is naturally wiry and coarse yet you'd prefer it to be different, figure out exactly what you can do to achieve that goal instead of just blabbing on about it. Take action and claim the soft and radiant locks of your wildest dreams.

Back to Basics Coconut Mango Shampoo

Opt for a gentle fix for coarse and wiry locks with the Coconut Mango Shampoo from Back to Basics, which Mark Garrison of "Ladies' Home Journal" recommends. The mild smoothing formula is ideal for individuals with wiry and textured locks, as it softens and hydrates them with a blend of panthenol, coconut oil, jojoba and mango. The pampering product aims to nourish your locks from the cuticle layer, giving your hair a healthy, radiant and glossy feel.

Joico Silk Result Smoothing Shampoo

If your wiry hair has become an unruly, time-consuming nightmare, go for a deeply moisturizing product like the Silk Result Smoothing Shampoo from Joico. Sophia Panych of "Allure" is a fan of the floral-scented multitasking shampoo, which reduces frizz, boosts shine, purifies, hydrates and fortifies tresses using a combination of silk protein silicones, keratin and silk amino acids. With regular use of this shampoo, your formerly wiry and difficult locks should become silky and healthy.

Redken All Soft Shampoo

In some cases, excessive chemical processing can turn formerly normal hair wiry, dry, coarse and volatile. Instead of bemoaning your brand new hair woe, reverse it with a softening product like the All Soft Shampoo from Redken. "Allure" magazine's Elizabeth Siegel praises the strengthening shampoo, which encourages shine, conditions, nourishes and quenches dehydrated, stressed out strands with a combination of gold camelina, silk amino acids and avocado oil. As a plus, the shampoo also has a luxurious fruity fragrance.

Kerastase Bain Oleo Curl Shampoo

For curly, wiry and hard-to-manage locks, "InStyle" magazine's beauty editors rave over the Bain Oleo Curl Shampoo from Kerastase, which uses cationic polymers and palm oils to soften, deeply moisturize and replenish elasticity and radiance. If you're interested in a mild solution to limp curls, this amodimethicone-infused shampoo aims to keep your hair full of healthy volume and life.
