The best shampoos for hair
Do you shampoo your hair every week and are you starting to wonder if it’s time to change your shampoo? CTOTAL has in its online store a wide range of shampoos to find the ideal shampoo for your hair type.
The benefits of shampoo
The shampoo is usually in liquid form and is used to clean the scalp and hair. It removes dirt and excess oil around your hair follicles.
Shampoo improves the condition of your hair by making it look and feel healthier. It may be necessary to lather your hair, rinse and repeat to get rid of all dirt and build-up in your hair.
Thanks to its richness in vitamins nutrients, minerals, and natural extracts, the shampoo improves hair growth by stimulating the scalp. As a result, hair follicles remain healthy.
The shampoo also acts as a color protector. If your hair is colored, the right shampoo will preserve the color so it doesn’t fade quickly.
On CTOTAL website, you will find a variety of shampoos such as shampoo for blond hair, shampoo for wavy hair, the most effective anti-dandruff shampoo, and even the best hydrating shampoo.
How to know when you need to change your shampoo?
If your hair is getting frizzy or increasingly tangled, it means that it’s not getting enough moisture. It could also be a result of your shampoo robbing your hair of the natural oils it needs.
For situations where your hair lacks volume or shine, you should consider using a volumizing or strengthening shampoo. Kerastase Genesis Nutri-Fortifying Shampoo will be the best volume care shampoo in that case.
If you notice a change in the texture of your hair, change your shampoo as needed. This means choosing either a shampoo for oily hair or shampoo for dry hair (the best Redken shampoo for dry hair is Redken All Soft Mega Shampoo nourishment for severely dry hair).
The appearance or resistance of dandruff in your hair may be a sign that these foreign elements are resisting the antifungal agents in your shampoo. Another sign is that you need to change it and switch to better dandruff shampoo.
Choosing the right shampoo for your scalp
Shampoo for oily scalp
If your scalp tends to be oily or greasy, you should avoid shampoos that moisturize, smooth or promote curly hair. These products add too much moisture to an already oily scalp. They are not the choice for scalp healing shampoo.
You should look for labels that say volumizing, strengthening, or balancing. They are not moisturizing and will be more effective at removing excess oil.
Another type of shampoo for the oily scalp is clarifying shampoo. It is very effective for oily scalps but it is recommended not to overuse it as it could dry your scalp. The best hair care shampoo, in this case, would be the Kerastase clarifying shampoo bath.
A tip for oily scalps is double shampoo. It consists in washing your hair with two different shampoos to target different needs. For example, you can use one shampoo to treat your oily scalp and another one to wash your roots.
When you have an oily scalp, spend more time massaging the shampoo with your fingers or with a shampoo massage brush. Other brands that help you achieve this result are Wella shampoo, l’Oréal shampoo, Moroccan oil shampoo, a keratin shampoo, or even Goldwell shampoo.
Dry scalp shampoo
If you have a dry scalp, don’t choose strengthening, fortifying, and volumizing shampoos. These products prevent your scalp from receiving the level of moisture it needs.
For mildly dry scalps that have little to no itch, opt for shampoo labels that emphasize moisture, smoothing, or curl. These types of shampoos will retain moisture that is beneficial to your dry scalp. Plus, they are not the shampoos to turn to if you are looking for a hair growth shampoo.
Very dry scalps that itch or flake should be treated with shampoos specifically designed for dry scalps. A good shampoo for itchy scalps is L’Oréal damage repair shampoo or Elements soothing shampoo.
Another tip to keep in mind when choosing your dry scalp shampoo is to avoid shampoos that contain sulfates. Sulfate can be very drying to hair and scalp that already suffer from this problem.
Choosing the right shampoo for your hair
For fine hair, look for volumizing shampoos that will add volume to your strands without weighing your hair down.
Thick hair prefers moisturizing or soothing shampoos. These are great for adding moisture, shine, and softness to thick hair that lacks moisture.
If you have straight hair, thick shampoos are ideal because they are rich in soothing agents. They seal the cuticle and promote straight, smooth styles.
For those of you with wavy hair, balancing shampoos offer the best of both worlds. It’s an in-between option that doesn’t moisturize hair optimally but doesn’t dry it out either.
For curly hair, you can opt for highly moisturizing shampoos that contain ingredients known to reduce frizz without weighing down curls. You would then be looking for a curl shampoo such as Moroccanoil Curl Enhancing shampoo.
Damaged, colored, or brittle hair on the other hand needs strengthening shampoos. Fortifying shampoos usually contain additional proteins that improve the condition of the hair. A color shampoo recognized as one of the best shampoos for color-treated hair is La Riche Directions Colour Protecting Shampoo.
How to recognize healthy hair?
Healthy hair can be recognized by its shine and bounce. If your hair lacks elasticity, you need to moisturize it. You should avoid heavy pomades or silicones that could weigh your hair down. Instead, you should turn to serums or oils that can keep your hair moist.
If you have dandruff, it means that your scalp is oily and flaky. You’ll need to reduce your shampooing frequency and avoid mild shampoos. Also, look into L’Oreal shampoo for greasy hair.
