Finding the right shampoo and conditioner can be hard, especially when it feels like there’s a million different options out there! Like with any other product, the right shampoo and conditioner should meet the unique needs of your hair. If you’re wondering what the right shampoo and conditioner is for you, you’re in luck! We’re here to introduce you to some common hair types and help you discover what kinds of products are best suited to make your hair shine!
Choosing the Right Shampoo and Conditioner for You
Everyone has a unique hair type and texture, so it's important to figure out yours in order to find the products that best suit your hair! Some common hair types include:
1. Dry Hair
For those out there with dry hair, finding products that offer moisture and nourishment are a top priority. Dry hair can be a pain to deal with and it can be a sign of hair damage. If your hair is frizzy, coarse, brittle and/or prone to breakage, it definitely requires a gentle and nourishing shampoo, as well as an ultra-moisturizing conditioner.
When choosing a shampoo, make sure to avoid ones with sulfates or other harsh ingredients, as they will strip away your hair's natural oils and increase dryness.
2. Oily Hair
Excess sebum can make your hair feel oily and greasy. For those with oily hair, you definitely want to wash your hair often to reduce the appearance of greasiness. Given your hair’s excessive oil production, you should avoid products specifically aimed at moisturizing and opt for formulas that balance and strengthen your hair.
Look for ingredients like salicylic acids or charcoal that can break down excess sebum and remove dirt and oil.
3. Fine Hair
Fine hair tends to be on the thinner and straighter side, so if you’re looking to boost your hair’s volume and style we recommend seeking out volumizing shampoos and conditioners. Products that can increase the diameter of your hair shaft can help to bulk up your hair and enhance its fullness.
Make sure to look for products with ingredients like biotin and keratin, which can strengthen your hair and help to avoid further hair thinning.
4. Curly Hair
Curly hair has very specific needs. To avoid frizz and enhance the style of your curls, make sure you’re using products that are high in protein content and ultra-moisturizing. This will help to condition your roots, prevent frizz, and enhance your hair’s overall luster.
Nourishing oils like argan oil or avocado oil are a great way to enhance your curls while adding shine and elasticity.
