These Are the Top 8 Best Shampoos for Soft Hair

Tell your hair stylist you've got soft and smooth hair under control.

If you ever dreamed of soft, smooth, manageable hair, we’ve got good news: It’s possible to achieve and it won’t cost you a fortune. We’ve tried a handful of shampoos that are said the each be the best shampoo for soft hair, but nothing comes close to the list of shampoos we’re obsessed with here at All Things Hair HQ.

Although soft hair can be achieved using other techniques or hair products, like flat ironing for smooth hair or using a hair moisturizer to soften and add shine, the shampoo you use also plays a huge part in the process.

Best Shampoo for Soft Hair: 8 Formulas We’re Loving

Below, we’re highlighting five smoothing shampoos we’ve all come to love because they all leave us with soft and frizz-free hair:

1. Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo

Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo is formulated with keratin and controls frizz for up to 48 hours. Continuous use and coupled with the conditioner, and you’re left with soft, smooth and manageable hair. If you need just a simple keratin shampoo system, this is one of the best ones to try.

2. TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo

When it comes to getting smooth hair, no hair type should be left out. When you color-treat hair, though results are definitely fab, the process itself can be damaging to your hair if you don’t employ the right products into your regimen. Enter TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color Shampoo. The shampoo is formulated with lower sulfates, which works to gently cleanse your color-treated hair, smooth down your frizz and seal in shine. Followed up with the conditioner for moisture, and it all sounds like a genie in a bottle, no?

3. Suave Professionals Avocado+Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo

If you’re looking for a shampoo that will help keep your hair smooth and frizz-free in humid climates, Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo is right up your alley. Here’s the catch: You can’t use it alone if you want those results. Cocktail this shampoo with the conditioner for hair that stays smooth for up to 72 hours and protection from frizz in 95 percent humidity. Sounds like a hair care system perfect for beach vacations if you’re not into frizzy beach waves.

4. TRESemmé Smooth and Silky Shampoo

While it’s a beautiful thing to have smooth hair, you can’t forget about hydration especially if you have dry hair. Hydrate your tresses with TRESemmé Smooth and Silky Shampoo.
