Don’t worry, its not as weird as you may think. Purchasing the best shampoo for your hair can be quite difficult and is definitely something you want to master. Whether you have curly, straight, thick, thin, or any type of hair, this guide will help you find the best shampoo to use to make sure your hair reaches its full potential on a daily basis! Follow these tips below while online shopping for hair products to find the best shampoo for your type of hair.
If you have fine hair and constantly struggle with wanting to make it look fuller, you should consider purchasing shampoos that add more body to your hair. Search for hair products labeled “volumizing” but make sure to avoid shampoos that have silicones. These kinds of shampoos can make your hair look messy, rather than voluptuous. However, by using polymers like the “quats” (polyquaternium 7 or 10) your hair will feel and look fuller! You can also try shampoos that have film formers, like as hydrolyzed wheat protein and PG-propyl silanetriol for making your fine hair look as voluptuous as possible.
For those of you out there who struggle with controlling your curly hair, special curly hair shampoos will help control its volume, size, and messiness. Additionally, curly hair requires lots of conditioning products for smoothness and moisture and to prevent dry, damaged hair. Women with curly hair should also stay clear of silicone because it will coat the hair and prevent moisture absorption. When looking for your perfect shampoo, seek nourishing ingredients like glycerin, olive oil, shea butter and jojoba oil to keep your curly hair hydrated and shiny.
If you find yourself constantly struggling with dry hair, definitley look for moisturizing shampoos. Coconut oil is one of the best products in hair care and is highly recommended for those with dry hair. When choosing your favorite product, make sure to look for ingredients like dimethicone and cyclomethicone, avocado oil, grapes oil, and argan oil, which will each give your dry hair softness and shine.
If you’re like me and find yourself washing your hair far too often due to its constant oily nature, there are specific hair products available just for you. The first thing you should make sure to do is stay clear of moisturizing or conditioning shampoos. You don’t want to add even more moisture to your already oily hair. Make sure you look at the labels on all potential hair products and select products with short ingredient lists. You want products that are detergents, such as sulfates, to get rid of dirt and oils. If you struggle with dandruff, as do many women with oily hair, look for anti-dandruff ingredients in shampoos, such as ketoconazole, zinc pyrithione, or selenium sulfide.
Follow these tips in order to find the perfect shampoo for you, and you will start enjoying your healthy, clean, gorgeous hair instantly!
