It's slightly baffling how the French make even the most mundane products seem elegant. Hand lotion, anti-wrinkle cream, hair clips — even shampoo for thinning hair, as French hair brand Klorane's Shampoo for Thinning Hair proves. Of course, it's not just the French aura that's earned the shampoo glowing Amazon reviews. Shoppers put it straight: With use, the shampoo immensely cuts down hair shedding. 

Within two weeks, happy customers write that the shampoo leaves their hair feeling both extremely soft and all the more plentiful with a noted decrease in hair loss. Multiple people struggling with postpartum hair shedding say that the shampoo has cut it down with just a handful of uses, and it leaves their hair feeling thicker than ever before. A shopper with thyroid issues likewise writes that after first buying it in Italy (humblebrag), they now can't live without it

The same magic applies for those with regularly thin hair: The formula allows for it to look thicker, healthier, and go days without accumulating grease. Klorane's dry shampoo is a universal winner with countless editor endorsements and thousands of Amazon raves, so grease reduction is in the brand's wheelhouse.

The shampoo "cleans hair beautifully" with added biotin, panthenol, and quinine extract, which the brand claims restores hair strength (if you're used to volumizing shampoos leading to dryness, this is the exception). Quinine is also responsible for malaria medicine and making gin taste good, so thank you, quinine. Hair-wise, one person says it's the best strengthening product they've tried in their entire life, and another calls it the "only shampoo to deliver what it promises: stronger, healthier hair with a lot less breakage." 

On top of that, shoppers say the shampoo massively soothes their dry scalps where nothing else works, contributing to the overall greatness of "dramatically reduced" hair loss. One person dealing with stress-induced shedding says they saw regrowth within a month, and it's so good, another says they've used it for over 20 years.  

When paired with the line's conditioner, a different shopper writes that their hair loss is subsiding and their hair looking fuller and shinier. One last person echoes the praise with the note, "After you try it, you will never leave it." And with those accolades, why would we?
