Everyone wants lustrous, shiny locks that look and feel healthy, but it isn’t always the case, but there’s a lot shampoo can do to help the situation, so we’ve rounded up the best shampoos for dry hair.

These shampoos will help you get your hair back to a healthy condition, that’s usually down to over-styling or chemical treatments.

Using the right products and giving your hair a break from all the bad stuff can really make a difference, as well as eating the right foods too. Try eating more healthy fats like avocado, salmon and nuts, as well as using one of these shampoos to see if they make a difference to the moisture of your locks.

These shampoos are great for nourishing and moisturising, but it’s important to remember to cut down on the number of times you shampoo too. Washing your hair every day can strip moisture of the hair, so try to leave it to every other day, and maybe cut it back even more if you can. Try these fresh hair hacks on days when you would normally be washing it.
