Nowadays, the assortment of shampoos offered by various cosmetic companies is very diverse. In conditions of fierce competition for the consumer, companies are forced to constantly expand their assortment and improve product quality. In such circumstances, it can be quite difficult to choose the right product. In most cases, this has to be done by trial and error.
Determining the type of hair
Hair is conventionally divided into four types - dry, oily, normal and combined. Colored and split ends do not fall under this classification, because they require special care. On the packaging, manufacturers indicate what type of hair the product is intended for and what happens to the structure of the scalp when using a particular shampoo. This information is worth relying on when choosing a hair care product.
If the label says that the shampoo is suitable for the whole family, then this means that it contains only detergents and fragrances. This product does not provide additional hair care. The use of shampoos for men is not recommended for women because of the difference in hair structure. Their use in women can provoke dandruff, since some emollients are not included in the male shampoo.
If you have serious hair problems that cannot be resolved on your own, you should seek the advice of your doctor. This may be a symptom of a medical condition.
If you have problems with your hair and scalp - dandruff, brittle hair, falling out, splitting, then you should approach the choice of shampoo more responsibly. There are also special drugs that help solve these problems well.
The detailed composition of the constituent components should be indicated on the product label. The fewer substances listed there, the lower the cost of the shampoo. Low-quality shampoos usually contain only fragrances, dyes and surfactants. They also have a pungent odor, bright color and liquid consistency. Such shampoos should be used with great care, since there is a risk of developing allergic reactions to their aggressive components.
To treat dandruff, you need to use special products that are sold at the pharmacy.
If the shampoo contains about 40 components, of which substances with detergency are no more than 10-15%, then such a shampoo is more preferable for purchase.
In order to understand whether the choice of shampoo was made correctly, you need to use it regularly for several weeks. If you have not noticed a dry scalp that cannot be combed, then you are not mistaken with the choice. But even in this case, you should not dwell on a single product, because over time, addiction occurs, and the effect of the shampoo comes to naught. It's good to have a few suitable hair care products in your bathroom and change them periodically.
