Why using the right type of shampoo for your hair is very important

Shampoo is one hair care product that is used around the world by men, women and children to wash their hair. Did you know that your hair shampoo choice is very important? Because it is so regularly and widely used it is very easy to take it for granted. In fact how many of us pay close attention to the type of shampoo we use to wash our hair? The answer is very few of us and this needs to change. Using the right hair shampoo can make a huge difference to your hair.

This at first may sound like an exaggeration but it isn’t. Shampoos are formulated differently, depending on its main aim. It is now common to have medications in shampoos. Obviously medications to treat scalp issues. And they are very effective when used correctly. Conditions like flaky scalps, dandruff and dermatitis can successfully be treated by using the right shampoo that contains the right set of ingredients to address your scalp issue.

In the same way shampoos can treat scalp conditions, they can also provide the scalp with nutrients and conditioning agents to prevent dryness and boost health. Shampoos are used to address hair thinning problems too.

If you have coloured or dry dyed hair then you should opt for a sulphate free shampoo as they are more drying and strip your hair of it’s natural oils. Instead use sulphate free shampoos or moisturising shampoos. Always opt for a shampoo that is safe to use on coloured hair. Check out the list of ingredients and make sure there is no mineral oil or any other ingredients in the product that aren’t good for your hair. Ingredients like mineral oil aren’t absorbed by the hair and just coat the strands.

Why using the right type of shampoo for your hair is very important

Look for natural oils like coconut, jojoba, argan and olive oil in the ingredients list. Some shampoos also include vitamins and minerals like Biotin, Panthenol and vitamin E. These are all nutrients your hair and scalp need for health and vitality.

Don’t waste your hard earned money on clarifying shampoos or any speciality shampoos. This is because clarifying shampoos don’t do anything a normal shampoo that contains sulfates can’t do. All they do is remove any buildup on your hair, a function that any shampoo that contains sulfates can easily achieve. Clarifying shampoos are just a marketing fad which justify their price tags.

Using a shampoo to address your hair’s particular needs is a good way to constantly give it the attention it requires. This is particularly true if you wash your hair regularly. Of course this does not apply to everybody as some people only wash their hair several times a month. Get to know your hair and understand what makes it look and feel healthy. A solution that works for one person may not work for everybody else so always ensure you try and test different products in order to find one that work for your own hair. Remember everyone has different hair textures, thicknesses and scalp conditions, so finding products that suit your individual needs is vital.
