The best shampoo for each hair type and budget
When you’re standing in front of the shampoo aisle at the store, you might wonder why in the world there are so many bottles and if there really is a difference between them. The answer is yes…and no. You can, of course, use any shampoo on your hair without entire strands falling out of your scalp but some shampoos have been specifically created to target certain hair problems. Read on to choose the best shampoo for each hair type (and budget).
