The Best Shampoos for Dry Hair, According to Expert Hairstylists

Dealing with a serious case of dehydrated locks? There is one piece of information the pros want you to drink in: “Shampoo is the first line of defense for keeping hair healthy and shiny,” says Nazzi Brewer, a hairstylist at Hair Room Service in Los Angeles. That means if you want to get your hair shiny in a second, what you choose to lather up with is key.

“To set up a strong foundation for your hair to look its best, reach for a product that is filled with moisturizing oils, like argan, shea, kukui or avocado,” Brewer says. On the flip side, stay away from anything that is labeled as clarifying, or has ingredients like paraben or silicone (which can cause build up and dull natural shine).

Still overwhelmed by the options? To return you to your crowning glory, check out these hair heroes.

“If you have extremely dry hair, the argan oil in this will help,” Brewer says. “It also has a luxurious lather with a signature sweet scent.” It especially works wonders on thick locks.

With some hydrating shampoos, all it takes is a dollop to leave your hair feeling weighty, as if it’s coated in paste—but not this one. “The formula targets dry strands while still being very gentle and leaving hair soft and silky,” Brewer says.

T’S A 10 MIRACLE MOISTURE SHAMPOO

Think of this product as straight-up nutrition for your hair, Brewer says. It’s loaded with hydrating ingredients like vitamin C and acai extract. Plus, it claims results after just one wash, so expect a head full of glossy tresses in 3, 2…

TRESEMMÉ MOISTURE RICH SHAMPOO

You don’t need to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks. “This is my favorite drug store brand shampoo,” Brewer says. “It locks in hydration where your hair needs it most.” Taking you straight from blah to bounce.

PUREOLOGY HYDRATE SHAMPOO

Calling all color-treated tresses! This pick is perfect because it won’t strip away your dye job. Equally awesome: “One of the key things with this product is that it has zero sulfates, which means it has a milder form of cleanser and will not take away all of your hair’s natural oils,” says Chelle Neff, founder and stylist at Urban Betty Salon in Austin.

BUMBLE AND BUMBLE GENTLE SHAMPOO

If you over-style or treat your hair, check out this magic in a bottle. It works great on every hair texture, and has a ton of moisture-enhancing ingredients, like avocado oil and nettle extract, Neff says. Oh, and it smells amazing.

PUREOLOGY NANO WORKS GOLD SHAMPOO

“We actually call this hair crack at our salon—the marula golden oil and keravis ingredients definitely deliver,” Neff says. The only problem? “It’s definitely a bit more expensive, so you may need to take out a small loan before purchasing. It also smells like a dream with a blend of jasmine, vanilla, rose, and amber.”

REDKEN ALL SOFT

This shampoo will give your hair a reboot. “It has argan oil to moisturize and an RCT protein complex to strengthen your strands,” Neff says. “Plus, it leaves your locks super shiny and bunny soft.”

Even if you never color or use a heat tool, dry strands can make a cameo, thanks to the climate or the natural state of your mane. If that’s the case, this product is a favorite of Meg DiGiovanni, an owner and stylist at Salon V NY in New York City. “It absorbs quickly into your hair and scalp to hydrate without clogging the cuticle,” she says.

If your locks always feel crunchy, this formula won’t cake on your hair and create hard-to-comb-through patches or take away the natural oils on your scalp,” says Leland Ferrell, a senior stylist at the Benjamin Salon in Los Angeles. Perfect.

RENE FURTERER NATURIA DRY SHAMPOO

If you have curly hair, this one’s for you. “The moringa oil found in it is more effective than coconut oil and leaves ringlets feeling soft and full,” Ferrell says.
