The Best Shampoo for Black Hair

What is the best shampoo for black hair? Great shampoos for ethnic hair are often deeply moisturizing formulas designed to help tresses stay healthy and sleek. Which one works best? That depends: Each person is different and what works for one person might not for another. This list includes some of the most popular and highly rated shampoos for African-American hair. Vote for the ones you like the most, vote down any that you can't stand and definitely add any of your favorites that aren't included.

Great shampoos for black hair are designed to be especially gentle, imparting fantastic, needed moisture to strands and helping to make hair stronger and less prone to breakage. Locks often need extra TLC to stay healthy, and having the right shampoo is the key to building a solid hair care routine. Sulfate-free shampoos are a great option, because they cleanse the hair effectively without stripping away all of the hair's healthy oils. In short, they're not as harsh. Not everyone's hair responds well to sulfate-free shampoos, so it's best to experiment a little to find what works best for you.

For more great hair care tips, take a look at this list of the best conditioners for black hair (and be sure to vote).
