You will also find at the end of this article a buying guide to make the right choice.
Wella Professionals Brilliance
Wella Professionals Brilliance
The best cheap shampoos
Perfect for the budget, here are two cheap shampoos that will please.
Garnier Ultra-Soft: the best cheap
Neither paraben nor silicone
Not necessarily suitable for problem hair
The first cheap shampoo of this selection is once again a brand that is no longer necessary to present since it is, I think, impossible to walk in a hair care department without crossing it. Indeed, the Garnier brand is a flagship brand of shampoos and rightly so.
For a very modest price, Garnier Ultra-soft shampoos are particularly good for the hair. Paraben-free, silicone-free, they gently wash their hair, without attacking them, which makes it possible to avoid hair that grows quickly or is dried out. What to optimize the time between two washes!
It is indeed recommended, unless specific problem, to wash his hair with a shampoo as gentle as possible, which guarantees light hair, neither too dry, nor too fat (and also perfect for the scalp in the process).
If there is a whole range of Garnier ultra soft shampoo that adapts to all types of hair and with many scents, this moisturizing shampoo with coconut water and aloe Vera is perfect for moisturizing hair a little dry without to weigh them down. Indeed, coconut water is known to be a source of natural hydration while Aloe Vera is renowned for bringing freshness and softness.
Well hydrated, your hair is softer and infinitely softer to the touch. Light and bright, they radiate vitality and smell good!
Personally, I like Garnier shampoos very soft and generally never follows disappointed. Very pleasant and perfect for my hair and my wallet the brand is also committed to a sustainable progress by incorporating into its formula coconut water and aloe vera of natural and renewable origin.
This shampoo is also produced in a plant committed to sustainable development and its bottle is made with 30% recycled plastic and is recyclable. A little more that counts!
This shampoo is, you will understand, my favorite of this selection and the best value for money in my opinion.
Hahn Petrole Anti-Fall: the anti-fall
Active anti-fall principle
Efficiency not clearly visible according to many users
The famous brand of shampoo Petrole Hahn here offers the first shampoo of this selection and at a really small price. Sold in packs of 3 bottles of 250 ml, this shampoo is particularly known for many years to fight against hair loss, concern of many of us.
Thanks to its formula containing Trichodyn, it has been shown that this treatment can effectively and visibly slow down hair loss with an effectiveness rate of up to -51% of hair loss according to a study carried out on 30 volunteers during 6 month against placebo.
Trichodyn, an anti-fall active with proven efficacy, acts by stimulating cellular energy storage and regenerating natural defense mechanisms. It also blocks the appearance of inflammation of the scalp and fights against the stiffening of the tissues surrounding the hair follicle to promote better anchoring of the new hair.
Hahn Oil has also selected thyme essential oil for its beneficial properties and stimulating fragrance. Your hair is revitalized and strengthened and the leather the scalp is cleansed, leaving a pleasant smell in your hair.
Dermatologically tested, its use is safe. For a better efficiency, it is advisable to use Hahn Anti-Fall Oil Spray for daily maintenance
If the anti-fall effect is not always more visible according to many user feedback, this shampoo has at least the merit of being pleasant to use and feel good, for a price really accessible. What satisfy many people. For a really effective shampoo on this side, it is not very surprising to have to spend a little more and certainly have to turn to a more specialized product.
The best mid-range shampoos
Here are two mid-range shampoos that stand out.
Aussie Miracle Repair: the best mid-range
Neither paraben nor silicone
Repair effect not very visible
Mark for me discovered during a stay abroad several years ago, the kangaroo brand is now no longer an unknown for many. At an affordable price, Aussie repair miracle shampoo will bring dry, damaged hair back to life with a special formula of Australian Macadamia Nut Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil and Oil. Avocado.
An ultra-nourishing blend that resuscitates the worst hair and gives them back their softness, shine and splendor of yesteryear. For an even more pronounced result, use the conditioner of the same range and you will see even faster results!
Very good in the field of remedial care, this brand also has a very pleasant smell and texture, with a generous foam. Without silicone or paraben, your hair is not weighed down and is therefore light and shiny.
Unfortunately, the really repairing effect does not seem very pronounced even if the hair is a little less dry. To see according to your need and your hair type. In general a mask repairs more than a shampoo.
For the price, a mild shampoo associated with a good repairing mask seems more appropriate. Personally, restorative shampoos tend to over-grease my hair, but it's again a personal opinion and it costs (almost) nothing to try this shampoo and see how your hair reacts.
They will be clean and feel good, if not that, it's already taken.
Eugene Perma Professional Nature Collection: the green
Certified ecological and organic
For all types of hair
Neither paraben nor silicone
Special texture and scent
If you are ready to invest a little more, here is a shampoo of the professional brand Eugene Perma and remains accessible to all. With its range of organic products, Eugene Perma offers a shampoo that combines professional performance and the benefits of nature.
This shampoo is indeed composed of shea olein that structures the hair dry or very dry and nourishes the scalp. It also has clay that has a purifying, softening, and moisturizing power. This natural ingredient has more than 70 trace elements and offers a variety of health benefits. The clay absorbs excess sebum and guarantees a light and silky touch right from the first application. As a hair protector, the Macadamia Oil contained in this shampoo limits the aggressions of the hair and embellishes dull, damaged and / or soft hair, while moisturizing and fortifying them. With this formula, this shampoo is suitable for all types of hair. It leaves the hair soft, healthy and silky, without weighing it down.
It also validates the main principles of Ecological and Organic Cosmetics by being certified by Ecocert and benefiting from the Cosmébio label. Obviously without sulfates, silicones and parabens it is perfectly neutral for your hair and thus ensures a gentle and respectful cleaning. Produced without additives or other, the smell remains subtle and it foams less than usual shampoos. Its particular texture, which is more like a cream than a traditional shampoo, may be confusing at first, but it is practical to use (easier dosage). A shampoo that clearly stands out because of its organic and ecological composition but still quite expensive. It will therefore be necessary to respect the dosage "hazelnut" to make a return on investment.
The best high-end shampoos
For larger budgets, here are two shampoos that stood out.
Wella Professionals Brilliance: the best upscale
For a bright color or reflections
Reasonable price per liter
Requires a pump for easier use
Not for all hair types
If you are not against an investment (at least initially), here is a shampoo from the professional world of the famous brand Wella, which, with its capacity of 1 liter, will certainly last a while.
With the new Microlight Crystal technology, specially designed to enhance the brightness of the Wella Professionals colors, this shampoo is perfect for colored hair thanks to its antioxidant action that delicately protects the keratin from harmful free radicals, for a long-lasting color and hair full of vitality.
Whether you have thin or thick hair, this shampoo takes perfect care of your reflections and your color thanks to the diamond dust that it contains. This allows you to enjoy it for as long as possible and therefore space visits to the hairdresser (so you can potentially save money on this side).
In addition to a clear shine, this shampoo gives off a very pleasant smell and leaves the hair light.
If ever this 1 liter capacity scares you and you want to try the shampoo, it also exists in smaller sizes of 250 and 500 ml. A tip if you start in the large format, buy the pump so you can easily serve and dose!
A care worthy of a home hairdresser, for a price certainly high, but which, given the amount, is not exorbitant in the end.
An interesting investment in my opinion, provided that you have already tried and that it suits you. It would be a shame to end up with a liter of shampoo that you do not like to use or that does not fit your hair.
Revlon Professionnal Be Fabulous: for fine hair
Reasonable price per liter
Requires a pump for easier use
Not for all hair types
Here is another shampoo in the same kind as the previous one since the famous brand Revlon is also from hairdressing salons. A professional home care therefore, just like the previous one, but this time designed especially for fine hair.
Fine hair is usually more fragile, often has split ends and cuticles tend to break. Fine hair can have up to 50% less protein than thick hair, which means they have a smaller diameter.
They therefore need appropriate care so as not to damage them even more. Revlon's Fabulous Daily Hair Line for fine hair helps provide more texture and volume while leaving the hair silky without weighing it down.
Care recommended by many hairdressers, it is surprising because it does not foam a lot, which does not mean that it does not wash. It also has a very pleasant smell.
It also sold in 1000 ml tube, the investment in the purchase is ultimately profitable if we take into account the little needed for each wash and if we report the price per liter.
However, as for the previous shampoo, it is better to make sure that this shampoo suits you before investing and to find you with 1 liter of shampoo that you do not like. It is therefore advisable to test it in smaller quantities beforehand. For a professional home care, the price is really affordable, especially when buying large quantities.
Your fine hair will tell you thank you.
The products of my selection on offer at the moment
Almost torture time when we face the shampoo department because of the mountain of choice available, it sometimes becomes difficult to choose the shampoo that suits us. To make it easier for you, here is a little shopping guide that will allow you to see a little more clearly.
Getting into the composition of shampoos is sometimes impossible. If organic is obviously what most of us are looking for, it is not always possible to find, or at least not in our budgets.
Nevertheless, there are ingredients to avoid in all cases and therefore must read the labels.
If, fortunately, more and more products are announced without parabens, sulphates or silicones, the following ingredients must also be avoided as much as possible: methyparaben, propylparaben, propylenes glycol, dimethicone, lauryl sulphate, laureth sulphate and sodium chloride . You will see, it is not so easy!
In any case, look for natural oils including argan, coconut, avocado, wheat proteins, shea butter, vitamins (B5 in particular) and minerals, keratin.
As a general rule, shampoos with extracts and natural components provide more care for hair and are more environmentally friendly. They are silicone free and sulfate free and are less dangerous.
The best, of course, is to turn to organic labels, which promise you quality products, a mild shampoo, non-harmful and respect the earth for your hair.
If the bio is, today, become widely accessible, one must however be careful not to be influenced by the so-called organic or ecological products without being really. Without labels, the product is not considered ecological or organic.
For your information, know that an ecological product can contain only 50% of natural products while a biological product must see 95% of its ingredients from organic farming. For those who value organic food, the Nature et Progrès label will be a sure guarantee. This is the only label that requires 100% organic ingredients. However, you will have to pay the price, unfortunately.
The type of shampoo
If the first difference that can be observed between professional and supermarket shampoos is their price, it is mainly due to the quality of the product and the ingredients that were used for their manufacture.
Professional shampoos have been made with real active ingredients. Also, these shampoos have been produced with real formulas that help to make the finished product better. Finally, the difference between a professional shampoo and supermarket is established at the level of efficiency.
In general, popular products unfortunately contain more chemicals that give the illusion of beautiful hair, but have no long-term effects. Some of these products are called "filling" and often weigh down the hair. Avoid especially shampoos containing silicone!
Professional shampoos will tend to work more deeply and the results will be remarkable over time.
In addition, professional shampoos do not need to be used in abundance and generally a small quality is sufficient before they foam properly to treat the hair. Your bottle will last longer, which will dampen the price with the purchase.
Trust your hairdresser, he usually knows what he's talking about.
The type of hair
In all cases, it is necessary to adapt your shampoo and washing habits according to the type of hair that we have.
Thus, for dry hair, it is recommended to opt for shampoos that have moisturizing, nourishing and softening effects thanks to various oils including (argan, shea).
Greasy hair requires shampoos that are purifying. You will then have to turn to shampoos containing in particular clay.
If, by chance, your hair is rather normal, consider giving preference to very mild shampoos, which will wash gently without harming and risk greasing or drying your hair.
If your hair requires more special care for dandruff you need to prefer shampoos adapted or even specific and purchased in pharmacies if this is really a big problem. They usually contain specific molecules that function as a dermatological treatment.
You can then use a shampoo slightly less specific but still suitable as a background treatment. Ask the advice of your dermatologist (or if not your pharmacist), he is best placed to recommend you.
If this concern of dandruff is only superficial, you can always turn to supermarket shampoos provided for this purpose. It is usually necessary to choose a product that hydrates the scalp without greasing the hair. A delicate balance.
For colored hair, specialized shampoos are necessary to keep a beautiful color longer (and reduce visits to the hairdresser). You will not miss a supermarket choice, but if your budget allows, choose professional products that will be much more effective.
In conclusion, which shampoo to choose?
If your hair is normal (neither greasy nor dry) then I suggest a shampoo ultra soft like those at Garnier which is, I think, the ideal. Your wallet will tell you moreover thank you.
If, on the other hand, you really have special needs (oily, dry, dandruff or colored hair) then you will have to turn to more specialized shampoos. In these cases, it is advisable to opt for a professional hairdressing salon (like those of Wella, Revlon …), with active principles of quality and effective. Ask your hairdresser, he will know without worries advise you especially that he knows your hair.
Although more expensive, this care is still affordable, especially when purchased in large quantities. To try then before launching but after you will find your account without too much ruin it is certain.
Batiste Dry: dry shampoo for those days when there is no time. Very practical for emergencies, especially thanks to its small size of 50 ml (it also exists in larger format if you crack on it).
Natessance with castor oil: which says castor oil is ideal for dry hair. Unfortunately greasy hair will not appreciate, unlike the mention of all hair types advertised.
Activilong Actirepair Olive Oils and Avocado: despite its oils and so-called restorative action, this shampoo seems to dry the hair. Suffice to say that it is not at all what we look for when we buy a so-called repair shampoo.
Maui Moisture Thicken & Restore: quite expensive and rather new on the market. It seems rather promising even if not yet many users feedback.
Maple Holistics Sage: apparently very effective, it still remains extremely expensive. A real investment.
