Beauty experts vote Biosilk Hydrating, Samy Smooth, Bumble and Bumble Seaweed, Burt's Bees More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut, and Alterna Ten shampoos as among the worst shampoos available. These shampoos have a variety of negative effects that include drying hair out, imparting a bad smell, matting hair, and leaving hair heavy, flat and limp.
Because of the price tag, one may assume that Biosilk Hydrating Shampoo is a quality shampoo: however, this shampoo lathers poorly, strips hair of moisture and leaves hair lifeless. Samy Smooth Shampoo can leave hair sticky and stinky. Bumble and Bumble Seaweed Shampoo leaves hair greasy and flat. Burt's Bees More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut Shampoo leaves hair greasy and smelling foul. Alterna Ten Shampoo can leave hair limp, lifeless and full of static.
A dandruff shampoo to be weary of is Head and Shoulders Refresh 2 in 1. This shampoo burns that scalp and eyes and causes the hair texture to feel as though it is breaking down.
In the category of color preserving and enhancing shampoos, Aveda Clove, TRESemme ColorThrive Brunette and John Frieda Radiant Red Color Captivating Daily shampoos may do little to actually preserve color and may stain other body parts.
One shampoo bar not to try is Burt's Bees Rosemary Mint Shampoo Bar. This product does not clean hair well and leaves it very dry.
