The Best Thickening Shampoos for Thin Hair, According to Our EditorsAugust 21, 2020
I swear my hair has thinned out over the past few months. I’m not sure if it’s due to stress, age or heat damage (I have a very close relationship with my curling iron), but my hair just doesn’t feel as dense as it used to. Thankfully as soon as I did some digging, I realized that there are a bunch of great thickening shampoos out there. From options that nourish the scalp and increase body to shampoos that lift hair at the root, I’m rounding up my favorite thickening shampoos, ahead.
Kérastase Densifique Bain Densité Deluxe Shampoo
If you have thin hair, then you’re probably using products like texturizer, mousse and hair spray to get a little extra volume. To get rid of product buildup and strengthen your hair at the same time, give this deep-cleansing shampoo from Kérastase a try. Formulated with hyaluronic acid and ceramides, the bodifying shampoo amps up volume and strengthens hair.
Put down the flatiron and pick up this sulfate-free thickening shampoo from L’Oréal Paris. Designed specifically for hair prone to breakage, the shampoo fortifies thin and fragile hair. The drugstore product is safe for color-treated hair and is salt- and surfactant-free.
Fine hair typically falls flat when summer humidity is in the mix. Give your hair a little boost at your root by using this volumizing shampoo from Garnier. The lightweight shampoo, which is formulated with pomegranate, gives the appearance of visibly fuller hair by volumizing each strand.
For a full routine for thinning hair, pick up the entire Biolage Advanced Full Density System, which includes a conditioner and leave-in treatment. This shampoo in particular is great for frizzy hair, removes follicle-clogging impurities and makes hair look and feel healthier.
Calling all men! If your hair is thinning or fine, make sure to give this invigorating shampoo — which has a ginger mint scent — a try. It gently cleanses while also stimulating and nourishing the scalp. Just make sure to massage the product on your scalp for one minute before rinsing.
Packed with vitamins, rosemary leaf and biotin, this fortifying shampoo helps to promote hair growth and protect from free radicals. Vitamin B5 and panthenol create shine, while cucumber and aloe vera prevent frizz and calm stressed-out hair. This shampoo really does it all, so make sure to keep it stocked in your shower.
Want volume that lasts through da- two hair? This volumizing shampoo has you covered. It thickens hair and boosts its body. It also has a refreshing citrusy scent and a Color Guard Complex that protects hair from UV radiation and free radicals.
