Although hair fall is a common and recurring problem amongst men and women, the latter is unfortunately more prone to such complications. Some of the main causes of hair loss and thinning are hormone-related, stress-related, dandruff, and even diet-related. Nevertheless, it’s safe to say that finding the right shampoo, like those listed below, can help resolve your hair loss issues. Check out some efficient ones below!

1. Kerasys Anti-Dandruff & Sebum Control Shampoo

Best for oily hair
Price from RM34.90
Lazada Malaysia RM34.90 Shopee Malaysia RM34.90

In most cases, oily scalps are hereditary and when there’s an overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands on your head, your hair roots become clogged. However, oil attracts dirt easily. As a result, your scalp starts to itch and the constant scratching causes hair breakage. 

Kerasys’ Anti-Dandruff & Sebum Control Shampoo is a deep cleansing and scalp care shampoo that is specially formulated to target trouble-prone, oily scalps. It contains antiseptic and antimicrobial properties such as peppermint and menthol - both of which have wonderful aromatherapy effects.

2. Selsun Blue Extra Moisturizing Shampoo

Best for dry hair
Price from RM21.55
Lazada Malaysia RM27.40 Shopee Malaysia RM21.55

Dry hair is typically associated with rough and brittle textures, and this is inevitably one of the main culprits behind hair fall, as weaker hair strands are more prone to breakage. To combat this, try using a moisturizing shampoo like this one by Selsun Blue. This particular shampoo features Honeyquat 50 to effectively moisturize your hair from within and restore its natural shine for luscious locks! Additionally, it has Selenium Sulfide, an active ingredient that fights dandruffs, flaking, and itching. 

3. OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Shampoo

Best sulfate-free hair fall shampoo
Price from RM40.00
Lazada Malaysia RM47.48 Shopee Malaysia RM40.00

Sulfate is a potent detergent that can be found in most personal care products and it’s an ingredient that helps to lather nicely, which honestly, can be quite a therapeutic process. However, when they’re used in shampoos, it might work to the point of stripping away natural oils, leaving your hair dry and brittle. 

This coconut-infused shampoo by OGX will not only leave your hair clean and refreshed, but nourished as well. Hence, your locks will be able to return to its healthy state, never falling unruly.

4. Shiseido The Hair Care Future Sublime Shampoo

Best Japanese hair fall shampoo
Price from RM162.00
Lazada Malaysia RM162.40 Shopee Malaysia RM162.00

Asian hair types have specific needs. For starters, our hair strands are round and thick, and are generally straight. Our texture also usually varies from very fine to overly coarse, and we tend to have oilier scalps which result in hair fall. 

Thankfully, this shampoo from Shiseido targets age-related concerns such as hair volume, resilience, and shine. The Future Sublime range is formulated with their unique aging-care technology and S-Hyaluronic Acid for intense hydration, leaving hair more vibrant and resilient. 

5. Phyto Phytocyane Revitalising Shampoo

Best post-pregnancy hair fall shampoo
Price from RM78.00
Lazada Malaysia RM78.00

After giving birth, it is common for new mothers to experience fluctuating hormone levels which then causes “post-partum shed”— hair loss and overall glow. At the same time, breastfeeding also contributes to the increase of Prolactin, a kind of hormone that’s connected to hair loss during this post-pregnancy phase. 

While supplement intake is pivotal to counter this issue, shampoos play a part too. Phyto’s revitalising shampoo contains their signature Cinchona bark decoction and essential provitamins B5 & B6 to fortify the hair, as well as anti-aging properties such as grape seed extract and gingko. 

6. Himalaya Protein Shampoo - Softness and Shine

Best ayurvedic shampoo
Price from RM23.90
Lazada Malaysia RM23.90 Shopee Malaysia RM23.90

If you prefer a more natural alternative to prevent hair fall, Himalaya’s protein shampoo is your best bet. It’s enriched with wholesome herbal ingredients namely the naturally protein-packed Beansprouts, the deep conditioning Sunflower, Lotus and Yarrow, and the natural hair tonic Amla. All of these ingredients produce a synergistic effect to result in lustrous and healthy hair.

7. Nizoral AntiDandruff Shampoo

Best with Ketoconazole - suitable for men too
Price from RM85.00
Lazada Malaysia RM89.00 Shopee Malaysia RM85.00

Ketoconazole is a common medication used to treat itchy scalp and dandruff problems. This Nizoral shampoo is the ultimate anti-dandruff shampoo as it contains 2% of Ketoconazole, which simply put, means that you will be able to see a result that is nearly instantaneous after using! 

On top of that, Ketoconazole is “anti-androgenetic”, this means that it is helpful to prevent hair loss associated with male hormones such as testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT).   

8. Alpecin Double-Effect Caffeine Shampoo

Best for men
Price from RM40.00
Lazada Malaysia RM40.00 Shopee Malaysia RM40.00

When men reach a certain age, they begin to bald due to hormones or genetics. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone that can only be found in males and oftentimes, it causes old hair in the scalp to be gradually replaced by shorter and thinner hair. 

Alpecin is the number 1 German brand to counter male hair loss as the main ingredient in their shampoos is caffeine. Caffeine is helpful to counteract pre-mature hair loss as it increases hair root productivity as well as the speed of hair growth. However, as it can be overly harsh on female hair, we won’t recommend women to use it.
