8 best shampoos for curly hair according to the pros

Amika Hydro Rush Shampoo

The first wash of this lightweight, hyper-moisturizing shampoo hydrated our dehydrated curls instantly. Our tester noted her hair was more moisturised after the first wash.

L'Oréal Paris Evercurl HydraCharge Shampoo

After one wash, this cheap shampoo improved our tester's fine, medium-tight curls. She claimed her hair felt silky and the curls were looser and less frizzy immediately, and the effects improved throughout the trial time.

Kevin Murphy Hydrate Me Wash

Celebrity hairstylist Kevin Murphy's moisturising shampoo gave our tester lovely curls. After a few washes, her hair appeared fresh and bright. This shampoo's soft cleaning lather travels smoothly.

Adwoa Beauty Baomint Moisturizing Shampoo

This moisturising shampoo for curly and coily natural hair left our tester's hair clean and revitalised after every wash. Like a curl cream, the lightweight composition spreads effortlessly on the scalp and strands without lather.

Briogeo Super Moisture Shampoo

Our tester fell in love with this reparative shampoo, which targets damage, split ends, and breakage. She became "a believer" in Briogeo's moisturising shampoo after seeing the tremendous improvement.

Bumble & bumble Curl Moisturizing Shampoo

This Bumble & Bumble magic bottle achieves definition every time, regardless of curl pattern. This treatment worked immediately on thick, frizz-prone, curly hair and improved over time.

OGX Coconut Curls Shampoo

This rich drugstore shampoo makes luscious hair inexpensive. We noticed that coconut oil-infused product hydrated fine, wavy hair without weighing it down. It revitalised and softened our tester's weary hair.

Curlsmith Frizz Control Cleanser

Frizz is a common problem with curly hair, but Curlsmith's smoothing and cleaning shampoo may help. We tried the new mixture on wavy, frizz-prone hair and found it silkier and smoother after one wash.
