5 Best Smoothing Shampoo Products in 2019

Because frizz is never fun.  

While we’ve seen that natural texture is a key hair trend on the catwalks for 2018, what happens if your natural hair texture happens to be a major frizz-fest? Easy. Find the best smoothing shampoo for your locks!

No longer will you have to sit on the sidelines and gaze on at your silky-haired friends with envy, as it’s time to get proactive and do something about it. With the help of one of the best smoothing shampoo products we’ve rounded up, you can take your wild, uncontrollable hair and lather, rinse and repeat it into submission!

So whether your hair is naturally straight, wavy or curly, if you’re ready to wage war on uncooperative strands, here’s all you need to know…

1. TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Marula Oil Shampoo

There’s so much talk about keratin in hair products and you might have even tried a keratin smoothing treatment at the salon, so it’s a good ingredient to keep an eye out for when looking for something with a smoothing effect.

The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Marula Oil Shampoo makes use of keratin’s cuticle smoothing properties, as well as African Marula oil to give up to 3 days of smooth, frizz-free hair – which is pretty much a miracle if you’re someone who usually has to go over your hair with straighteners every morning!

2. TONI&GUY Smooth Definition Shampoo

There is no one root cause (excuse the pun) of frizziness. But if you feel that your frizzy barnet is being caused by a lack of moisture, the best smoothing shampoo products are always those which are going to give your hair more hydration.

The TONI&GUY Smooth Definition Shampoo can’t be knocked for it’s root-to-tip moisturising effect; plus once you’ve got out the shower, it’ll also make hair easier to manage and style! Great if your frizzy hair is prone to more knots and tangles.

3. TRESemmé Silky Smooth Salon Silk Shampoo

We talk about having hair that’s ‘silky’ soft, so why not go straight to the source and try a shampoo that actually contains silk?

The TRESemmé Silky Smooth Salon Silk Shampoo formula has been developed with silk proteins and argan oil (also known for it’s conditioning benefits) to calm wild hair, leaving it feeling as soft and light as it does when you leave the salon.

4. Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo

Whenever our hair feels particularly dry and uncooperative (usually in the winter months), we reach for more oil-based products to provide extra nourishment. That’s where the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo comes into our routines.

Worried that oils will be too heavy for finer hair? You need not stress. This caring shampoo features Weightless Nutri-Oils which, while delivering moisture to your strands, won’t leave them feeling weighed down or covered in product build-up.
