How to find the best straightening shampoos for dry, frizzy hair
If you're struggling with dehydrated and unruly locks, look for shampoos enriched with nourishing components like plant oils, keratin, and honey to help smooth out its texture. Avoiding formulas that are too harsh or heavily fragranced might help as well, so skip anything that makes your strands feel too squeaky clean! Check out the products below for options:

How to find the best straightening shampoos for colored hair
With the right products, a smooth and silky finish is definitely possible on processed hair.
