9 Best Shampoos for Dry Hair to Try In 2020

Want to discover the best shampoo for dry, damaged hair? We have you covered...  

Are you looking for a way to quench your dry strands? If so, you’ve come to the right place. The All Things Hair team is about to send your parched tresses on the road to hydration town by helping you find the best shampoo for dry hair!

Our hair naturally contains a small amount of water, but this percentage can increase or decrease depending on factors like changes in climate, whether you colour your hair and how often you use heated styling tools. So, if your strands are currently feeling less than hydrated, adding a moisturising shampoo to your hair care routine should be a top priority.

Discover the best shampoo for dry hair by taking a look at our round-up of the hydrating picks we swear by.

Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo

Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo

If your hair type is generally normal but occasionally errs on the side of dry, all you need is a light daily shampoo to give you some extra nourishment every time you wash.

The Dove Daily Moisture range contains a Pro-Moisture Complex to progressively provide more moisture over time but it’s still light enough to use regularly, making the range the best shampoo and conditioner for dry hair for daily use.

Dove Nourishing Oil Light

After something more nourishing? You’ll love this pick! The Dove Nourishing Oil Light is infused with a blend of weightless luxurious oils that help to soften and restore your hair’s natural shine. Every time you use it, your hair will be left feeling smooth, less frizzy and gorgeous.

Love Beauty And Planet Happy & Hydrated Shampoo

Say goodbye to dry hair! The Love Beauty And Planet Happy & Hydrated Shampoo gently pampers, hydrates and protects hair, leaving it wonderfully nourished and ready to be styled. What’s more, this product is good for you and the planet, as it’s vegan and eco-friendly.

TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Shampoo

TRESemmé Nourish Coconut Shampoo Front

Curly hair is notoriously susceptible to becoming dry, which puts you at risk of undefined, frizzy curls and increased breakage. This TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Shampoo has a formula infused with a blend of super nourishing ingredients, including coconut milk, coconut oil and aloe vera, to cleanse and condition the hair without weighing it down.

TONI&GUY Smooth Definition Shampoo

For a lot of people, dryness manifests itself as frizz, so tackling this will go a long way to improving the overall look and feel of your hair.

The TONI&GUY Smooth Definition Shampoo hydrates and cleanses your hair, leaving you with softer, silkier-feeling locks. The deep-penetrating moisture helps to provide intense nourishment and improved manageability, so styling will be easier too.

Bursting with moisture-boosting ingredients, you can rest assured that this dry hair shampoo will help strengthen and add shine to your worn out locks. Are you ready to try the Tigi Bed Head Recovery Shampoo?
