Best For Thinning Hair:

Densifique Bain Densite Shampoo, £25.43 (was £28.25) | Kérastase

From diet to hormones, lots of things can affect the density of your hair. Kérastase’s ultra-rich formula works hard to add body, bounce and resilience to thinning hair by cleansing away impurities, while stemoxydine – a hair loss treatment – enhances hair growth. Elsewhere, hyaluronic acid promotes hydration, while ceramides provide a light protective barrier to minimise frizz and breakage.

Best For Hard Water:

Hard Water Shampoo,  £18 | Hello Klean

Hard water can take a toll on your hair, as left-behind calcium and magnesium make it more difficult to rinse out shampoo and conditioner, causing excessive product build-up. It can also strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it feeling dry and prone to breakage. Hello Kleen aims to combat this issue by using lactic acid to boost strength and hydration, bamboo charcoal and vitamin C to draw out minerals on the hair shaft, as well as oat protein to soften and condition.

Best For Dry Scalps:

Amino Mint Scalp Cleansing Shampoo,  £16.73 (was £23.90) | Redken

If you suffer from a dry, itchy and flaky scalp, your hair may need some extra TLC. Redken’s Scalp Relief is specifically designed to combat dandruff and calm the scalp. Made with sensitive skin in mind, it uses silicone and lavender oil to moisturise, while citric acid balances the PH of your scalp for healthier, bouncier-looking hair.

Best Daily Treatment:

The Scalp Serum Fragrance-Free, £60 | Nécessaire

Necessaire’s formula is lightweight, oil free, non-sticky and non-greasy. It contains some familiar ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, which provides deep hydration and shine. It’s also loaded with green tea extract to soothe irritated scalps, while the pipette applicator makes it easy to get into the spots where your scalp needs it most.

Best For Damaged Hair:

Elvive Glycolic Gloss Sulphate Free Shampoo, £6.49 (was £12.99) | L’Oréal Paris

Be it from too much heat or too much bleaching, if your hair is feeling a little fragile, it may be time to switch up your shampoo routine. The L’Oréal Paris Glycolic Gloss contains glycolic acid to lift away any excess sebum, and dissolve any product build-up that may be dulling your strands and hindering hair growth. The acid also helps the formula’s moisturising agents penetrate the hair better, encouraging smoother, shinier strands from the very first use.

Best For A Luxe Feel:

Cocomino Glossing Shampoo, £26 | Drunk Elephant

Drunk Elephant has been a heavyweight in the skincare world for some time, but the brand’s Cocomino Glossing shampoo is what we’re interested in here. With a blend of calming and fortifying amino acids and extracts that work to shield hair from moisture loss and promote a silky texture, these ingredients also act as a barrier against heat damage. The oils – specifically marula and argan – hydrate the hair to give it a glossy shine, as well as boosting scalp health. The scent is heavenly, too.

Best Budget Buy:

Rich Moisture Shampoo, £3 (was £6) | TRESemme

Need something that’s going to deeply cleanse without stripping your hair completely? TRESemmé’s Rich Moisture Shampoo should be high on your list. The formula contains ‘micellar technology’, which means the formula has the same surfactants as your favourite micellar water to help remove any build-up. Meanwhile, vitamin E hydrates to support a healthy scalp.
