Which are the best shampoos for dry hair?

Dry and brittle hair be very difficult to manage. More prone to breakage, split ends and frizz, dry hair can often look unruly and far from the sleek, shiny finish we all dream of for our hair.

If you struggle with dry hair, the first step in addressing the issue is using hydrating and nourishing products in your haircare routine and one of the easiest changes to make is switching your regular shampoo for a moisturising formula.

What causes dry hair?
