I enjoy supermarket trips and love to read the labels of the drugstore shampoos. No, drugstore shampoos are not bad for your hair. In fact, some are as good as expensive shampoo brands. Here’s the truth, I have never splurged on shampoos. Never have I ever splurged on a conditioner as well! Ok, what else, never have I ever not bought drugstore shampoos and conditioners. Some of the best shampoos ranked, also best smelling shampoos are found in the drugstore.
Finding the right products for your hair type is the first baby steps towards getting the most of your hair and do your hair good, that’s why I have rounded up the best drugstore shampoos and conditioners for every hair type. Because I have been on a mission to find the best shampoos and conditioners that work for me and all my family members’ hair types. Here are the products I purchased, and they raved about it. So, I’m categorizing products for the persons I buy it for, how fun! The 12 products below are what I believe the creme de la creme of the drugstore shampoos and conditioners, and these inexperience hair products cost less than $12.
Best drugstore shampoo for dry hair (me, and my brother)
Herbal Essences Bio: Renew Shampoo Argan Oil of Morocco
I wear my hair curly most of the time, so for that, I need something that will define my curls while deeply soften, nourish my strands. I wouldn’t expect hydrated sleek hair from shampoo alone. But you know the moment you let the running water wash your hair that this is a good product.

It is the best product I tried so far hands down. It makes my hair so soft I won’t need to do a homemade yogurt mask often now.
Best drugstore shampoo for fine hair
Tresemmé Pro Collection Thick & Full Shampoo
The best shampoo for fine hair is one that can moisturize the hair without weighing it down. Giving it a thicker, fuller look at the end. My mom’s hair is curly but becomes finer while aging. I grab this for her sometimes for a noticed volume after a shower. She uses it before getting a hair-dry to double the volume impact.
