When you have fine hair that's prone to falling limp, you need shampoo that adds volume without weighing hair down. In the quest for fullness and texture, you also don't want your hair to look rough or straw-like. The top volumizing shampoos offer the best of both worlds -- oodles of oomph and a soft, silky feel.
