Hair care begins in your shower, when you chose and apply the correct type of shampoo that suits your hair type. Here are some tips for choosing the correct product for the style you wear, be it straight, curly, or dyed.
For people with curly hair, it is best to chose a mild variety. If you wash your hair on a daily basis, then opt for a baby shampoo. Ted Gibson’s Daily Cleanse Shampoo is also a good option, as this product has five essential cleansing and repairing agents as its ingredients. It allows the curls to have a soft and bouncy overall look. Stronger products like Intense Nutrition Shampoo can be used twice a week for extra nourishment. This shampoo is made from botanical products like kukui oils and macadamia, which are great for curly hair that has been dyed.
People with fine hair are often plagued wit the problem of limp locks. Andy LeCompte, the celebrity stylist states that such people should opt for a cleanser that can add bounce and a look of volume to the hair after wash. Enrich Volumizing Shampoo by Wella Professionals, and L’Oreal’s Volume Expand Shampoo have been recommended to solve the problem of limp hair.
Bumble & Bumble’s shampoo, Straight, is good for taming frizzy hair. This product is free of sulphate and visibly reduces fly-aways and frizz. Sabrina Michals, the Director and Stylist of the Styling Education center run by Bumble & Bumble says that this shampoo is composed of Tourmaline, Brazilian Green Malachite, Sapphire Powder and Pearl, that help to loosen the S-bonds, or inner-curly bonds. The effects are even better when the combined heat of the blow-dryer is used to dry and shape the hair. Another product, Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo is also available in the market. Using these shampoos will make the hair look manageable and healthy with an extra coat of shine.
Freshly dyed hair in shades of red look vibrant initially, but the color tends to fade with every wash. Celebrity hair-stylist Nikki Ferrara recommends the Davines Alchemic Shampoo for such cases. This product should be used only once every week, while on other days, the color fortifying Radiant Red Color Magnifying Shampoo by John Frieda will adequately suit the purpose of cleansing the hair as well as locking the color. Since this color fades rapidly, it is equally important to take adequate protection.
Davines Alchemic Shampoo is also good for individuals with blonde hair color, and who want to maintain the shade and tone. The Golden Alchemic Shampoo is best suited for those sporting a honey-like, or golden shade. There are other products as well. The Shu Uemura Moisture Velvet is meant for normal hair types, while Shu Uemura Silk Bloom Restorative Shampoo can be used for dry hair. It is important to choose the correct variety of shampoo in order to prevent the dye from developing a brassy or yellowish look in between salon sessions.
Hair care products greatly influence the health of the tresses and the extent to which they can be managed. Therefore it is important to chose a cleanser that helps to maintain the health and not cause any damage.
