Shopping for a new shampoo can be daunting: there are a lot of options! And when they are all telling you that they provide some new and amazing (and seemingly impossible) results, it’s hard to know what to believe! So we decided to separate out the best mens hair products from all the rest. Here are our results!
Paul Mitchell L Men Mitch Double Hitter Sulfate Free 2-in1 Shampoo & Conditioner Review
I love this shampoo-conditioner combo for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the fact that it’s a shampoo and conditioner saves me time! Being sulphate-free was also a real bonus, because I had read that it can cause your scalp to dry out. I was surprised by how little I needed and this has meant that the bottle has lasted for ages. It is quite pricey, but given how long it lasts it’s one of the best mens hair products.
Pros: 2-in-1, sulphate free so no dry scalp, don’t need much
CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY AntiDandruff Shampoo Review
This product is a miracle if you suffer from a dry, itchy scalp like me. There are a few products in the range, but I used the Clean & Refresh option. I shave my head occasionally as well, and this sometimes leaves me with ingrown. But no more after using this shampoo a few times! I couldn’t believe how quickly I noticed the difference and the amazing scent is an added bonus! It is a reasonably strong perfume though, so if you don’t like that, avoid!
Pros: Reduced scalp problems and ingrowns, nice smell
Cons: Smell might be too strong for some
L'Oreal Series Expert Vitamino Color Protecting Shampoo Review
For all those dyed-hair mens best hair products can be hard to find. I’ve been known to experiment with different hair colours, and when I do, this is what I use. It doesn’t let the hair colour fade or your hair get damaged. Don’t be put off by the pink bottle, this product definitely works just as well for men as it does for women! The only thing I disliked was that it didn’t lather easily, which made me think I needed to use more than I really did.
Pros: Great for colored hair, holds color, doesn’t dry hair out
Cons: Doesn’t lather easily
TIGI Bed Head B for Men Clean Up Daily Shampoo Review
If you like your hair to feel natural and light, this is one of the best mens hair products available. It leaves your hair shiny without looking like it’s weighed down with chemicals and oil. The scent is fresh and clean but not overpowering which is a plus. If your hair is very fine and you find it hard to manage, this might leave it a little too clean, if that’s possible.
Pros: Natural, light texture, makes hair shiny, nice smell
Cons: Possibly too much for fine, hard to manage hair
Head & Shoulders Hair Endurance For Men 2-In-1 Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner Review
This is one of the best mens hair products because it’s reliable, consistent and cheap. There are a lot of different collections in the Head & Shoulders range, but this one is ideal for men with fine or thinning hair. My hair is fairly coarse, so I gave it to a friend to try, and he asked if he could keep the bottle! Another winner from Head & Shoulders! If you don’t have fine hair, there will definitely be an option to suit you in their extensive range. The only downside is that each collection comes in a different scent, so you can’t choose.
Pros: Reliable, consistent, cheap, great for thin or fine hair
Cons: No choice of scent
