The 5 Best Shampoos For Fine Hair


Fine hair can often be a struggle to manage. It can make styling more difficult, cause your roots to become oily faster, and make hairstyles look flat and lifeless. If this is a struggle that resonates with you, you should be looking for a volumizing shampoo to add texture and thickness to your tresses on wash day.

Aveda has long been known for it’s organic, high-quality, cruelty-free hair products. This shampoo uses kaolin clay and acacia gum to build volume while calendula, honey, and marshmallow act as thickeners to give fine hair body, making it look more full than it actually is! It’s also got a zingy peppermint scent leaving you feeling alert and refreshed.

This gentle cleansing shampoo helps fine hair look like natural-looking full-bodied hair with only a quick wash!
