Tips for Hair Care - How to choose hair shampoo, right?

Hair Care

Hair care is important for normal hair, especially hair that is thinning. Unfortunately, many people do not understand the basics of hair care and get attracted by advertising in the use of products that may not be adequate.

Let's examine some aspects of hair care so that you can use hair products and styles in the best way.


Shampoos are cleaning agents and not as ordinary soaps. In fact, shampoos in the past were based on soap, but had the disadvantage of being affected by hard water. That caused a strong layer of dirt and hair made an appearance off. Modern shampoos contain synthetic detergents work equally well in hard or soft water.

There are essentially three types of shampoos available in the market. They are: i) shampoos for dry hair, ii) the normal hair shampoos and iii) shampoos for oily hair. There are other sub-classifications, but these are unnecessary and confusing. The essential difference lies in the amount of oil (lanolin, natural oil or mineral) added to them.

Shampoos for dry hair contain oil as normal or oily hair usually do not. It is useful to choose the right shampoo for your hair type.

Let your hair looks greasy and stuck, then use a shampoo for oily hair. If they wander too drying even for oily hair, use a standard formula and washing hair washing more often or double. Remember that the basic purpose of all shampoos is to clean the hair and all shampoos do this very well. Since all are equally effective, would like to choose the best smell, recalling that the price is not necessarily an indication of quality.

Some shampoos such as' balanced acid "or" pH balanced. "Detergent is found in all shampoos are alkaline (must be, otherwise it is not cleaned) and open the imbrications (spaces) in the hair cuticle to be easily entangles. This effect is minimized shampoos or shampoos with pH balanced acids.

Another group of shampoos available in the market are called medicated shampoos. They contain substances that help conditions such as itchy scalp or dandruff seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis.

Despite the name, medicated shampoos do not contain drugs for hair and help hair grow, nor cause hair loss. It can be safely used to treat seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis. Medicated shampoos are generally dry and conditioner can be used if it is a problem.

All types of claims have been made by manufacturers of shampoos and hundreds of healthy-sounding substances are added to attract consumers in their choice of products. Indeed, hair shampoos only clean, which nourish the hair. All nutrients for hair is provided by the blood vessels around the hair follicles and does not apply to the scalp follicles are affected below.

Shampoo is not harmful even for people with hair loss. Maintains regular shampoo cleanses the scalp and hair, heather-looking and comfortable. It can also help male pattern baldness by removing the androgens produced locally in the scalp. These androgens are thought to contribute to male pattern baldness.

Recently, a number of 2-in-one shampoos have been introduced in the market. These contain additional conditioner. Frankly, I think it is better to use a separate conditioner after shampooing because the detergent in 2-in-one shampoos wash probably most of the conditioner.

How do I use the shampoo is also important to get the best out of shampoo. Wet the hair, then pour a tablespoon-sized 20-cent shampoo in your hand. Spread between the fingers and then work the shampoo into the scalp. It is not correct to pour shampoo directly on the scalp because cleaning will be uneven, with some parts becoming more shampoo than others.
