Tips to Choose the Right Shampoo For Your Hair 

  1. The first thing you need to consider while choosing your hair is the type of your scalp, do not use any random shampoos. If you have a dry scalp, you will need a moisturizing shampoo while an oily scalp will need deep cleansing shampoo. So, choose wisely!

  2. The next thing you need to consider is the type of your hair. If you have curly and frizzy hair, choose a hydrating formulation. If you have colored or chemically-treated hair, opt for a protein-rich shampoo that is nourishing and protects your hair from pollution and photodamage.

  3. If you have straight hair which tends to become limp and oily and weighs down after a day of wash. Make sure to choose a mild but volumizing shampoo and they must be devoid of silicones but can contain PG-propyl silane triol, and hydrolyzed wheat protein to add volume.

  4. Your hair may be a challenging to handle since the scalp may be oily and grimy while the hair might be dry and frizzy. Thus, you will have to choose a shampoo that deep cleanses the scalp but moisturizes the hair. The shampoo must have a combination of benefits like rinsing off the dirt and grime and the proteins, vitamins, and moisturizing agents must help repair and restore moisture in the dry, damaged parts of your hair.

  5. Dry shampoos have the same effect as the other kind but they are easy and quick to use. They are your best friends to get rid of the unmanageable and weighed-down hair on the go. Make sure to read the instructions to use it well.
