Sunsilk, Pantene and Head & Shoulders are the most frequently bought shampoo brands. However, determining the best brand is based on preference and hair type.

Different brands of shampoo and variations within individual lines are made to suit a range of hair types. Shampoos made for dry hair may not work as well on oily hair, for example.

Head & Shoulders is the top-selling shampoo brand, selling almost 29 million bottles a year. It was introduced as the first anti-dandruff shampoo in 1961.

Sunsilk debuted in 1954, focusing on selling mainly to females. It is ranked a top seller in the Middle East.

Pantene has lead sales in over 90 countries. This shampoo is known as a health supply because of the addition of vitamins and nutrients.
