No-frizz shampoos, volumising shampoos, colour-protectant shampoos ... Is there any particular benefit to using a shampoo made for your hair type? The answer, while not simple, is definite 'yes'.
Let’s roll through several hair types and discuss the benefits of the formulas made just for them.
Shampoos for Oily Hair
Can a shampoo really control oil? This one is a definite 'yes'. Clarifying shampoos are the best way to keep hair clean and free of build-up.
O&M Original Detox Shampoo is a great example of an effective shampoo for oily hair. The Original Detox formula includes peppermint and tea tree oils, two tried-and-true oil-fighting ingredients. This product clears away excess oil and residue without stripping the hair and scalp.
Many other shampoos for oily hair contain similar ingredients, truly driving home their usefulness for quelling your oily hair and scalp issues.
Shampoos for Colour-Treated Hair
Shampoos for colour-treated hair contain numerous protective ingredients to help them cleanse without dulling or damaging your colour and hair. The hydrolysed oats in Aesop Colour Protection Shampoo fortify and nourish your hair to extend the life of your hue, as do many other colour-protective shampoos.
Shampoos for Curly or Dry Hair
These two shampoos are grouped together because both hair types need ultra-nourishing formulas. Otherwise, curly or dry hair is prone to tangling, breakage, frizz, and flyaways.
Green People Moisturising Shampoo for Curly/Tangled Hair is an amazing example of the ingredients you want to see and those you don't. Note the sulphate-free formula; curls react badly to sulphates. Botanicals such as aloe vera, neroli, chamomile, and marshmallow coat and protect the hair while cleansing.
For dry hair with any level of kink, APIVITA Shampoo for Dry & Dehydrated Hair provides loads of hydration. Honey is a humectant that seals the hydration of the almond oil in the strands. You're left with gorgeous, manageable, hydrated hair.
While those are just a few types of hair, it’s easy to see how the corresponding shampoo formulas are tailored to the people who will be using them. If you want to make the most of your locks, using a shampoo targeted to your specific hair type is more than beneficial—it's essential!
