The 12 Best Volumizing Shampoos to Give Hair an Extra Boost

The 12 Best Volumizing Shampoos to Boost Fine HairReady to take your hair to new heights? It all starts in the shower. While styling products like hot rollers and texturizing sprays can give limp, lifeless hair a much-needed pick-me-up, the best volumizing shampoos lay the foundation for fuller hair—and make sure the look lasts.

“Volumizing shampoo gives hair lift and strengthens each strand to give hair the appearance of fullness and bounce,” Jenny Cho, celebrity hairstylist and ambassador for Superzero, tells Bazaar. “Some shampoos do that with synthetic volumizing ingredients, but I prefer clean shampoo that has the right balance between cleansing and conditioning agents, to ensure hair health and natural volume without extra weight and unnecessary buildup.”

Though there is no shortage of top-notch cleansers available, shampoos with volumizing formulas are formulated differently. These staples sidestep many super-hydrating ingredients to deliver those gravity-defying results. “Good volumizing shampoos should have minimum levels of conditioners and oils to avoid weighing down the hair,” notes celebrity hairstylist and Fekkai founder Frédéric Fekkai.

But there’s more to the best volumizing shampoos than their lifted, buoyant results, according to Cho. “A good volumizing shampoo should also stimulate the scalp and create the best possible conditions for a healthy scalp biome,” she explains.
