The best hair thickening shampoo: Our top 5

1. TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Shampoo

The smart collagen and glycerine infused formula allows the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Shampoo to penetrate inside the hair for a visibly more plumped-up look. It also contains clever micellar technology which works to gently but effectively cleanse your hair of any grime and oil that could be contributing to flatness. After the first wash your hair you’ll notice your hair feels clean, revived and more full of life.

And for a real body boost, follow up with the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Conditioner.

2. Love Beauty And Planet Volume & Bounty Shampoo

If you’re looking for a hair thickening shampoo that works and is also good for the planet, the Love Beauty And Planet Volume & Bounty Shampoo ticks all the boxes. The formula, (which is completely vegan fyi), is specially targeted for fine and flat hair. It’s infused with coconut water (a lighter alternative to coconut oil) which hydrates parched strands without weighing them down.

We also can’t get enough of the Moroccan mimosa flower scent – it’s seriously addictive.

3. Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Shampoo

Enriched with lavender oil and rosemary extract the Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Shampoo is inspired by French hair rituals to deeply nourish your strands from within, creating fuller-looking locks from the first wash.

But the best thing of all? It’s suitable for everyday use, making this hair thickening shampoo ideal for those who can’t live without their daily lather.

4. TONI&GUY Volume Addiction Shampoo

When looking for hair thickening shampoo, going for a weightless product is one of the first things to look for. After all, there’s no point putting in all that hard work just for a heavy product to weigh your tresses down!

We love the TONI&GUY Volume Addiction Shampoo for enhancing volume, adding body and, of course, it’s weightless feel.

5. TIGI S Factor Stunning Volume Shampoo

If limp and lifeless hair is your biggest hair concern, then we suggest reaching for the TIGI S Factor Stunning Volume Shampoo.

It’s voluptuous formula with jojoba, nettle and pro-vitamin B5, uplifts dull, lifeless hair and adds weightless shine. So if big voluminous hair is your mane goal, add this to your hair arsenal, like, right now!
