Having brittle and dry hair is the worst, because you remember what your hair feels like when it’s at its best. When you dye your hair or use heat to style, you can see a lot of breakage at the ends of your hair or a halo of frizz around the crown of your head. When Beyoncé was singing about halos, this isn’t what she had in mind. The good news is that breakage and hair damage is usually a temporary problem. You can fix it by stepping away from the curling iron, straightener and blow dryer. Towel-drying can also hurt your hair. It’s better to wrap your hair up in a towel and let the hair towel absorb for the moisture. There’s also a chance that your current shampoo contains a higher pH and some harmful chemicals that are drying out your hair. Opt for an ultra-moisturizing shampoo to bring that bounce and softness back to your hair.

We rounded up the best shampoo for dry and damaged hair. Among our picks are a clarifying shampoo that helps remove build-up, a low pH shampoo for color-treated hair and a shampoo for thinning hair.
