Default What shampoo gives the most volume?

What shampoo gives the most volume? I've really noticed a difference between different brands of voluminizing shampoos.

Also, which shampoo will medically grow the most hair? (This is obviously a different issue.)

olmert,

Unfortunately, there is no shampoo that is likely to grow hair. However, I use Nizoral two times per week based on its rumored ability to inhibit DHT slightly.

As for thickening shampoos, the one that seems to work best for me is Vive for Men. I am currently using Samy Fat Hair and I personally don't see the same effect. A few months ago I sprung for Aveda Pure Abundance volumizing shampoo and was not impressed.

I am pretty surprised there isn't more discussion on this site about voluminizing shampoos.

I found that when I switched from Dove shampoo to Bumble Bee shampoo my hair got much thicker. Also Toppik spray works miracles. So much debate about transplants, while no one is looking for the low hanging fruit.

Hands down the best two are Loreal vive daily thickening and Pantene flat to volume. They are superior to anything I have ever used (and I have tried 30 dollar shampoos) and are very inexpensive yet contain ingredients that are not harsh to your hair/scalp.

And what is the best conditioner for volume? Is it better not to use conditioner at all?

@ takingtheplunge-

Do you not find Nizoral 3 x weekly too much? That stuff contains some strong sh*t.

I use it for psoriasis on the scalp and only use it once weekly maximum.

Cheers

Beardy

beardywierdy,

Oops...thanks for pointing that out. I made an error there. I use it twice weekly on a Monday/Thursday schedule. I'm going to edit my original post so as not to misinform any future readers.

Hi Olmert,

This is one i gave preference over the other shampoo's that i had tried. This given a softer hair after the wash and i don't use a conditioner after every wash.
