There are a few major reasons why your hair may be thinner than usual: everything from aging to hormonal changes to medications are known culprits. Your hair may never be as thick as you wish — genetics has blessed us with what we've got — but that doesn't mean you can't take steps you make your head of hair as healthy, shiny, and, yes, thick as possible. These five cheap, natural shampoos are made for thinning hair.
Pura D'or Argan Oil Shampoo
The argan oil in Pura D'or Argan Oil Shampoo strengthens each strand of hair, making it look plumper, smoother, and healthier. This formula uses 100 percent natural, organic argan oil, ylang ylang, amla, tree tea, rosemary, lavender, and avocado oils. It's free of chemicals like sulfates and parabens and is even fragrance free, making it the ideal choice for dry and sensitive scalps.
Thickening Shampoo By Bumble and Bumble
A classic volumizing shampoo that's suprisingly lightweight, Thickening Shampoo By Bumble and Bumble boasts ingredients like panthenol for conditioning and aloe vera leaf juice to seal split ends and hydrate without adding weight. Thinning, fine, and even flyaway hair gets a major boost at the roots and much-needed moisture at the ends.
OGX Thick & Full Biotin & Collagen Shampoo
A blend of vitamin B7, biotin, collagen, and hydrolyzed wheat protein in OGX Thick & Full Biotin & Collagen Shampoo gives fine and thinning hair nourishment and instanf thickening powers. This sulfate-free formula is safe on colored and chemically treated hair.
Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo
Thoroughly cleanse buildup from your scalp and add body and texture to fine, thinning, and medium hair with Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo. This refreshing formula contains organic rosemary and peppermint and, aside from waking you up and invigorating your senses, it's cruelty-free and will gently cleanse hair without stripping it of moisture.

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment
If you have an oily scalp with thinning or fine hair, it's important to cleanse with ingredients that can absorb excess sebum — or your scalp oils will just contribute to the problem of limp, thin locks. Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment has salicylic acid derived from willow bark, tea tree oil, peppermint, and lavender — all excellent at cleansing an oily scalp, rebalancing your skin's natural oils, and boosting your hair's volume.
