The 10 Best Shampoos for Thinning Hair

Add some extra thickness where you need it most.

Hair thinning is common. It took me several years to come to terms with that fact, after I lost the bounce and fullness that characterized my coif. Reputedly, the shedding of hair is the result of age, genetics, and hormones. It is inevitable, so don’t feel bad. Male-pattern baldness, however, is a different story. You’re gonna want to consult an expert, who’ll probably prescribe finasteride and minoxidil. But if all you’re after is volume and thickening, there’s no need to ingest a daily pill or reach for the Rogaine. A great shampoo will do the trick.

The best shampoos for thinning hair are all about nourishing the scalp. Having a healthy mane starts at the root, and these cleansers are specifically made with ingredients—including biotin, keratin, botanical extracts, or a combination of all of them—that'll gently strip away clogging impurities while improving blood circulation, thus allowing your follicles to flourish. You may not have the same kind of volume and strength that you had when you were younger (and that's regrettable), but if you check out one one of the options below, your spare locks will definitely get a little lift.
