When it comes to washing your hair, many men are guilty of just grabbing any old shampoo from the bathroom cupboard, thinking they’ll all do the same job. In fact, using the wrong shampoo for your hair type could mean bad news for your mane, as well as for any hair problems you may have (think dandruff, greasy or fine hair). But if you have absolutely no idea which shampoo is right for you, don’t worry: we’ve helped pick out the best men’s shampoo to suit your specific hair needs, so that you can (kind of) try before you buy.
Editors picks of the best men’s shampoo
For men with greasy hair / For men who use a lot hair products
For men who find that their hair becomes easily greasy, or even those of you who use a lot of styling products on a daily basis, look for a deep cleansing shampoo, like the Toni&Guy Mens Deep Clean Shampoo (£6.49*). Why? Because this will clarify and cleanse your hair, while also helping to remove product build-up to make your hair clean and ready for styling again.
For men with thin or thinning hair
We know that if you have thin or thinning hair, you may feel insecure about how fine your locks look – but it’s not the end of the world. While opting for the right hairstyle is absolutely key to help make your hair appear thicker, using the right kind of shampoo can also help give this illusion. Try the TIGI Bed Head For Men Charge Up Thickening Shampoo (£9.95*), as this will help to add body to your hair, making it look fuller!
For men with dandruff
Many men and women suffer from dandruff – and we know how annoying this hair issue can be. Luckily, there are shampoos out there, like the Toni&Guy 2in1 Anti Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner (£6.49), that are specially formulated to help combat those pesky white flakes. Dandruff, be gone!
For men wanting to banish ‘fluffy’ hair
Ah, fluffy hair. It’s an undesired add-on that unfortunately comes after washing your hair, making your mane harder to style – which can just be a real pain! Cue the TIGI Bed Head For Men Wise Up Scalp Shampoo (£10.50*), which contains special anti-fuz molecules. This may sound a little made-up, but the formula actually helps to reduce fluffiness, making your hair feel fresh, revived and ready to style!
So, there you have it! No more excuses to get caught out with the wrong shampoo. And now that you’ve got your mane all washed and ready, why not check out our Hair Products For Men page? You’ll soon know your pomades from your pastes with this essential styling hub.
