How To Choose A Hair Shampoo
Hair shampoo is abundant in the market today with various kinds and many claims. We can choose the shampoo base on the purpose whether its for dandruff combat, reduce oil on the scalp or hair loss treatment.
Picking the wrong shampoo can cause hair loss. Different manufacturers have their own formula. Some one may feel satisfied with freshness feeling after using a shampoo while other may has more hair loss after using the same shampoo.
When you found out that you don't fit to a shampoo, stop using it and change your shampoo. It can happen because a person is sensitive to one of the ingredient in a shampoo
Here are some tips to choose hair shampoo:
1. We can wash our hair daily using a mild shampoo to keep our scalp clean and get no irritation. Natural shampoo is recommended. It's much better than washing your hair every two or three days with powerful antidandruff shampoo in a long term.
2. Antidandruff shampoo that's being used in a long term can cause scalp dryness and that'll make the dry skin falls as a white particles. I was advised to shampoo daily with natural shampoo and if I want to use antidandruff shampoo, it should be done only twice a week between normal shampoos. Don't forget, some natural shampoos also have strong extract. Usually, the manufacturer tells us about if the shampoo is mild enough to be use daily.
3. A shampoo ad can be confusing. A cheap and expensive shampoo can be claimed with almost the same advantages. Pay attention to the ingredients in a shampoo container. An extract and an essence has a big different! Extracts are made from natural sources with active ingredients. They are more expensive (absolutely) and we can expect good result from natural extract. Essences are just the same smell. I don't know whether essences will give the same result as extracts. The more extracts in a shampoo make the price rising.
4. Shampoo is used for cleaning your hair. Conditioner is used to glue thin layer on your hair. To maximize the effect, use conditioner separately (not 2in1) and only on your hair, not the scalp. Improperly cleaned conditioner can accumulate in your scalp then make itchy feeling.
Hair shampoo is the first step to a clean and healthy scalp. It's important to choose the most suitable shampoo for each person.
