Washing your hair is something that is done naturally and it is always a routine: lather, wash, condition, dry off, blow dry and move on. If you have lustrous and shiny hair than maintaining it will be easy so a lot of care is not needed. Otherwise sites like hair and style can be used to determine what are the best shampoos and conditioners that can be used on the hair to make it look better and healthy.
What Type of Hair do you have?
To choose the best option that will suit your hair, it is important to know what type of hair you have. The easiest way to choose the right shampoos and conditioners is to read the bottle for hair type like dry, fine, frizzy, oily, etc. If you have fine hair, you can use a shampoo that adds body to it. Curly hair can be treated with products that are meant for chemically treated and dry hair so damage can be prevented. Shampoos that contain oils like coconut, avocado, argan or grape seed can be used on dry hair to moisturize it.
Any shampoo that has moisturizer or will add volume should never be used on oily hair. If you have dandruff, then pick an anti-dandruff shampoo that has ingredients like selenium sulfide or ketoconazole. Oily scalp can produce more dandruff as yeast live on the oils and produce byproducts that will cause the scalp to flake. If your hair is colored, then a color-preserving product should be used.
Is Conditioning Necessary for the Hair?
Shampoos were just used as a liquid soap and made the hair harsh and dry. So that is when conditioners became widely used as it added moisture to the dry hair. Conditioner will make the hair look fresh and it will feel smoother and softer. It will also help in calming the hair down so that it can be easily styled. If it is over-used, then a lifeless and flat effect will be created on the hair.
