How to find the Best Shampoo for Dry Hair

Despite common misconception, dry hair is often a hair condition rather than a hair type. With the right treatments and hair care habits, you can help to recondition the hair strands and make it feel soft, shiny and summer-ready. We’ll help you find the best shampoo for dry hair.

Why does my hair feel dry?

Dry hair is a common issue during the summer months. It is caused by a variety of factors such as changeable weather conditions, heat exposure, humidity, air conditioning and even hormonal changes. It can also be exacerbated by using the wrong hair care products for your hair type, which can lead to a lack of moisture.
