If you have damaged hair, then you are not alone. Due to many issues such as dying hair, stress, environmental issues, etc. there are many out there that are dealing with damaged hair.
I remember a couple years ago, my hair was so damaged that I thought I would have to cut it off in order to repair it. But before I did that, thank God I went in search of the best shampoo.
Not only was I looking for the best shampoo, but it had to be the best shampoo for damaged hair and it just had to do miracles for my poor hair. And it did!
So, below, I am going to give you 17 best shampoos that'll save your tresses. Guaranteed!
1. John Frieda Root Awakening Health Infusing Shampoo, Normal Hair
This shampoo is perfect as it will improve the health of your hair with the natural eucalyptus that is in it. If you are wanting shiny, bouncy radiant hair, then you are definitely going to enjoy this shampoo. It will awaken up that damaged hair and let the healthiest potential shine through. Isn’t it great how a small change can make a pretty big difference when it comes to healthy hair? I think this is the best shampoo for the best price…
2. Philip B Nordic Wood Hair and Body Shampoo
This shampoo has a unique scent to it that we know you are going to love. When I smell it, it reminds me of crystal Arctic waters and green forests. Before you use this shampoo, make sure you shake it, then lather and rinse. You can repeat, if you desire. I recommend you following it with Philip B Finishing Rinse and conditioner. It is great for coarse, thick damaged hair.
3. Camp Rock 2-in-1 Shampoo
You can only get this shampoo from Avon. It is a formula that is super gentle to your hair, which is great for damaged hair or shall we say, preventing damaged hair, since this is mostly for kids.

4. Style Volumizing Shampoo
This shampoo is safe for hair that has been color-treated. It will gently cleanse and enhance the volume of your hair. It will add shape, shine and strength to your hair.

I recommend you following it with Volumizing Conditioner.

Perfect shampoo? For my hair, yes. This may just be the best shampoo for damaged hair…
