Types of Shampoos
- Clarifying shampoo
Clarifying shampoo is great for those who suffer from product build-up. Hair with product build-up feels heavy, sticky, and flat due to daily use of hairspray, gel, and other products
Clarifying shampoo is designed to strip extra products from each follicle. Moreover, it removes hair dye and may strip the color from your hair. Use it once a week or less.
2. Dandruff Shampoo
Dandruff is a condition that causes dead skin to flake off the scalp. You might notice white flakes on your clothing, skin or even stuck in your hair. Manufacturers design dandruff shampoo with active ingredients to reduce curb this. These shampoos often have a medicinal smell and can be quite harsh.
3. Keratin Shampoo
If you suffer from limp locks and dull or lifeless hair, try using a keratin shampoo. It is specifically designed to boost volume. Moreover, it contains natural and chemical ingredients that restore protein to your hair. This gives you the appearance of stronger and thicker hair. It’s also a good choice for dry or damaged hair too.
Dry hair can occur because of genetics, heat damage or because of the products that you use. Opt for a moisturizing shampoo to get your hair all the moisture it needs. These shampoos may have a light and refreshing scent like coconut or fresh flowers, but unscented products are also available. With more moisture, your hair will look shinier and feel silkier.
5. Chelating Shampoo
Swimmers often use chelating shampoo because it reduces the damage that chlorine does to their hair. Chlorine can bleach the hair and weaken the follicles, causing the hair to break off.
Furthermore, it is also a good choice for those with hard water. Chelating shampoos remove minerals and chemicals to make your hair look and feel healthier.
How to choose a shampoo that suits your hair type
Buying shampoo can such a confusing endeavor. However, to be honest, the easiest way to find the right shampoo is to look for words on the label that match your hair type, such as “dry,” “oily,” “fine,” or “frizzy.”
- Oily scalp
If your scalp tends to be oily or greasy, look for labels that mention volumizing, strengthening, or balancing. These products are non-moisturizing and more effective at removing excess oil.
A clarifying shampoo is the best super-oily scalp conditions, but be careful to not overuse the product and dry out your scalp
2. Dry Scalp
If your scalp is dry, itchy, or flaky, choosing the right shampoo can be your first line of defense against the uncomfortable, sometimes embarrassing conditions. Furthermore, it’s important to choose a shampoo that doesn’t add to the issue when you have a dry scalp.
Look for shampoo labels that promote moisture retention, hydration, and smoothing.
