Best shampoos for thinning hair in 2020

Dealing with thinning hair? Thinning can happen to anyone. Age, diet and genetics can play a part in thinning. It could also be the result of damage caused by heat or bleach, to name a few.

Many factors play a part in breakage and hair fall, which is why nothing can stop it in its tracks, but using the right shampoos can make your strands feel stronger and look healthier. Read on to discover our top picks for 2020.

Don’t you wish you could reverse the damage done to your strands by heat styling, mechanical damage and daily wear and tear? Now you can! Sometimes hair appears thin, but really it’s just damaged by the above-mentioned factors. Strong, healthy hair however, is the exact opposite, which is why it often looks fuller.

TRESemmé Platinum Strength Care & Protect 7 Shampoo

TRESemmé Platinum Strength Repair & Protect 7 Shampoo works to cleanse, fortify and strengthen your strands as you wash. The shampoo is designed to restore your hair and can help to repair up to two years of damage caused by heat or other factors. Which leaves your tresses looking healthier and feeling stronger.

Breakage is something that affects us all, regardless of hair type or length. It happens for so many reasons, some of which include heat damage, brushing, dyeing and even daily styling! Breakage can make hair look like it’s thinning, especially if the hair is breaking at the root.

Keep your locks from breaking with an intensely nourishing product like the Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo. Formulated with unique Nutri-Keratin Actives, this product will deeply nourish each strand and restore your hair’s natural proteins from the inside out. Over time, your hair will become stronger, effectively preventing breakage.


Feed your hair

Thinning hair needs a bit of extra care. So we recommend you use a hair care product to feed your thinning hair and give it a new lease on life. Products that offer moisturisation, nourishment and strengthening properties are typically a good way to go.

Created with organic shea butter, the Organics Dry & Damaged Shampoo is a fantastic option to feed your hair. Shea butter has become one of the most famous hair product ingredients for a reason. It is incredibly good for hair, nourishing it from within and sealing in moisture, helping to protect it from the outside.
