Best Walmart Shampoos (7 Shampoos To Keep An Eye Open For)

Our hair is so much more than just the locks we sport; it’s also the scalp and follicle, and the chemicals in the products may be damaging. While most major shampoo brands will strip our hair and scalps of their moisture, Walmart carries a variety of good-for-your-hair shampoos.

There are a few brands here that you might not have heard of before. Nonetheless, these are seven of the best Walmart shampoos to keep an eye out for!

Best Walmart Shampoos In [currentyear]

1. ShaeMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Moisturizing Daily

One of the best “drugstore brands” around, ShaeMoisture walks the walk where it talks the talk, nourishing hair more naturally.

That said, this particular shampoo is amazing for curly-haired people because it’s:

  • Silicone-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Phthalate-free
  • Cruelty-free

Also, Hibiscus flower extracts help strengthen hair against breaking, making it more elastic and able to bend and twist (especially important if you pull hair up into a ponytail often).

Moreover, the shampoo smooths away frizz, moisturizes with coconut oil, and gives those gorgeous curls a natural shine.

Fortunately, you can pick up this wondrous shampoo for curls from Walmart for $9.97 per 13 fluid ounces.

2. Maui Moisture Nourish + Coconut Milk

Popular TikToker and hair health expert Theresa van Dam called out this brand by name when she went over which drugstore shampoos are a “yes.”

With that, the Maui Moisture Nourish + Coconut Milk bottle reminds me a little of those Bolthouse Farm smoothies, and to be honest, the ingredient list is surprisingly tasty sounding.

Further, count on creamy coconut milk, guava oil, mango butter, and pure aloe juice to rev up moisture in dry locks, putting shine and bounce back into your mane.

Because of the more natural ingredient list, you can regularly use this shampoo and not worry about product build-up as you would with big-name brands (like Pantene).

Additionally, if you struggle with split ends, this formula can help mend and heal, plus prevent future ones.

Moreover, the formula is vegan and contains no parabens, silicones, or sulfated surfactants.

Finally, you can pick up this shampoo for $6.97 at Walmart.

3. Love Beauty And Planet 5-in-1 Multi Benefits Nourishing

3. Love Beauty And Planet 5-in-1 Multi Benefits Nourishing Walmart

Perhaps one of the more beautiful bottles out on the market, Love Beauty And Planet products work as well as they look.

For example, the five-in-one formula builds shine and volume and smells like a juicy mandarin.

Also, the five-in-one is “infused with vegan biotin,” and its five functions include deep cleansing, hydrating, strengthening, creating fullness, and adding softness and shine to hair.

Like any shampoo worth its salt, it’s free of parabens, silicone, dye, phthalates, and sulfates, and the company is – of course – friendly to the animals.

For extra nourishing benefits, pair this shampoo with the matching conditioner. At Walmart, you can pick up the Love Beauty And Planet 5-in-1 shampoo for $6.94.

4. Vanicream Free & Clear

Aging is tough, and sometimes people find that as they get older, they become more sensitive to different chemicals that never bothered them before.

If this is the boat you find yourself in – or perhaps your child – consider trying this highly recommended Free & Clear shampoo from Vanicream.

That said, it’s free of pretty much everything, including the ingredients you’ve seen listed above, plus fragrance, proteins, lanolin, and many other preservatives.

Moreover, this is the ultimate shampoo if you have scalp sensitivity issues, experience eczema or dermatitis, or have dandruff.

If you’ve tried everything else, and you can bet that most shampoos that treat these issues tend to go heavier on the active ingredients, consider moving in the opposite direction.

Additionally, Vanicream Free & Clear is available from for $13.96.

5. ShaeMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore

Another exemplary offering from ShaeMoisture, the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore, is a salon maven’s best friend.

If you regularly treat your hair with colors, dyes, perms, or even at-home heat stylings, your locks slowly become fried.

Therefore, you need to nourish your hair especially well, infusing it with moisture to replace what styling can strip from it.

Again, ShaeMoisture products are cruelty-free and sustainably sourced and produced. Also, Walmart sells ShaeMoisture Strengthen & Restore for $9.97 per bottle.

6. Bautiste Dry Shampoo

Some people’s hair can withstand everyday washing, but it’s more of an every other day/every three days type of deal for many of us.

In the meantime, though, especially by the morning of the third day, things can get a little greasy and oily.

Therefore, you might need Bautiste Dry Shampoo, a waterless formula that you spray into your roots to soak up all that gunk.

It’s easy to use, easy to keep in your car or desk, and smells clean and fresh (there are other scents other than the original if you’d like to branch out).

Simply spray, massage in and then brush out to remove the excess and you’ll have instantly revived locks with new volume and texture.

Further, a canister of Bautiste Dry Shampoo sets you back $6.48 at Walmart.

7. Dr. Teal’s Essential Oil Volumizing Daily

Tea tree oil is an incredibly powerful essential oil known to be antibacterial and antifungal, meaning that it can clean and purify the scalp like no other.

That said, Dr. Teal’s Essential Oil Volumizing Daily not only targets your hair’s health at the source (the scalp), but it also adds voluptuous volume, strength, and hydration to locks.

Moreover, the formula includes not only the medicinally sharp-smelling tea tree oil (it can be too intense for some), but soothing spearmint and eucalyptus oils.

Finally, 16-ounce bottles cost just $6.41 at Walmart.

If you suffer from any hair or scalp ailments, you know the lengths we must go at times to try and get the conditions under control.

Luckily, Walmart makes treatments so much more convenient and affordable with high-quality products from trusted, if lesser-known, brands.
