How to Choose a Good Shampoo
With so many shampoo options lining store shelves and being available online, it can be tough to know which is the best cleanser for you. There may not be one best choice; you’ll probably find that several products work extremely well for your hair type. But how do you know which shampoo to buy?
Assess Your Hair’s Needs
The first step is to take a long, hard look at your tresses, and ask some important questions:
- Is my hair low, normal or high porosity?
- How often do I shampoo?
- Is my hair relaxed or natural?
- Do I have more than one chemical process?
- Is my hair very dry?
- Is my scalp oily?
Once you know the current state of your hair, you’ll be better equipped to choose a shampoo to keep it in good condition. For example, hair that’s considered high porosity has special needs. It requires ultra-gentle cleansers that don’t contain drying sulfates. This is also true of double-processed hair, or a lot of hair textures that are naturally dry.
Different Shampoos, Same Head
You might think that since you have a favorite cleanser, your search is over. Actually, even the same head has different needs at times. Using the same shampoo all the time eventually makes your hair become used to it and decreases the noticeably good effects. You should switch cleansers occasionally, but you don’t have to give up your favorite. Simply alternate it with a different shampoo from time to time. It’s also a good idea to have a clarifying shampoo on hand. This gets rid of product buildup that naturally happens from daily styling. Because clarifiers strip away buildup and oils, they should only be used on occasion; the more you put on your hair, the more often you’ll need to clarify, but once a month or less is ideal.
For the most part, women with highly textured hair should look for gentle cleansers. Many shampoos are sulfate-free, and they range in price from inexpensive drugstore finds to pricey salon brands. It’s easy to find good cleansers that fit your needs and budget once you know exactly what your hair requires.
