Thinning hair can be the result of many things, like stress, poor diet, genetics, and overusing the wrong products. But whatever the cause may be, know that there are solutions to this common type of hair loss–and, you can get them at your local drugstore!

Shampoo is a vital component of our hair’s health as it cleanses the hair and scalp of things like dirt, excess oil and product build up. So, you want to make sure that you’re using one that will not only clean your hair, but help promote healthy growth and restoration as well, especially if you’ve noticed that your hair is thinning.

We did the shopping for you and found the best natural drugstore shampoos that are geared towards thinning hair and hair loss. Here are some of our favorites:

nioxin system hair cleanser

Nioxin System 1 Cleanser For Fine Natural Normal, Thin Looking Hair ($19.65) 


This cleansing shampoo removes product build-up, minerals, pollutants and toxins from the scalp to promote healthy growth and restoration. It's formulated with a concentrated blend of botanicals and humectants, which clear the nutrient pathways at hair follicle sites without stripping essential oils.

Propidol Hair Growth Shampoo

Propidol Hair Growth Shampoo ($25.99) 


This drugstore shampoo promotes thicker, fuller and healthier hair, all while stimulating hair growth and regrowth. It's "guaranteed to be the strongest Anti Hair loss shampoo available today, with over 15 ingredients that contribute to hair growth, nourishment, and DHT blocking," according to Walmart, noting that DHT is the main source for baldness for men AND women.

Ginger and Saw Palmetto Scalp Stimulating Shampoo For Hair Loss and Hair Thinning Prevention

Ginger and Saw Palmetto Scalp Stimulating Shampoo ($32.50) 


This shampoo may be a little bit more pricer than your average drugstore shampoo, but that's because it contains the strongest known botanical hair-loss fighting bio-active components (saw palmetto oil, capsaicin, zingiberene and ginger essential oil) to guarantee natural hair growth for those with thinning hair.
