Is your hair texture curly or straight? Does it frizz or fall flat? Do you color it? For each hair type there's a shampoo made for it.
Different shampoos have different features and benefits, so in order to maintain the most vitality and luster, it's important to match what your hair needs to the features and benefits that are right for you.
The easiest way to find the right shampoo is to look for words on the label that match your hair type, such as "dry," "oily," "fine," or "frizzy."
Fine hair: Wash your hair with a ‘volumizing’ shampoo to add body.
Curly hair: To tame flyaway hair and prevent dry, damaged-looking tresses, we suggest a Repairative Shampoo specifically for dry or chemically treated hair.
Dry hair: Look for intensive moisture replenishment shampoos, we recommends scanning the ingredient list for natural oils, which are absorbed by hair. Coconut oil is one of the best emollients in hair care. Others are avocado oil, grapeseed oil, and argan oil.
Oily hair: We suggests buying a shampoo for oily hair. Stay away from shampoo that bills itself as moisturizing or conditioning. You don’t want to add more moisture to oily hair. If dandruff is also a problem -- which it often is with oily hair -- treat it with an anti-dandruff shampoo containing ingredients like ketoconazole, zinc pyrithione, or selenium sulfide. People think of dandruff as a dry scalp issue, but really your scalp is oil-producing and certain people make more oils than others. Yeast that live on the scalp feast on those oils and produce irritating byproducts that make the scalp flake.
Color-treated hair: Choose a color-preserving shampoo that won't strip out the highlights you just spent a fortune on at the salon, Arrojo says.
Once you've found the right type of shampoo for your hair, try different brands until you find one you like.
