best shampooWhen it comes to grooming, shampoo often goes unnoticed. Most men simply don’t think which shampoo to choose. They just grab any old or well-advertised shampoo, failing to realize that a properly chosen shampoo can do much more than cleaning. However, not every highly advertised shampoo will suit you, and some hair care products can altogether have a negative effect on the hair as well as on the scalp, which can lead to hair thinning and appearance of dandruff. Here’s how to choose the right shampoo that suits your needs.

First of all, it is necessary to know your hair type. There are three basic types of hair: normal, dry and oily.

Normal hair is shiny and iridescent in the sunlight. It is soft to the touch, doesn’t split and is easy to comb and style. Normal hair remains fresh and healthy for several days after shampooing.

Care: Use a shampoo and after shampoo products for normal hair type 2-3 times a week. This will be enough for hair wellness support.

Oily hair is lackluster, heavy and difficult to style. Excessive sebum production makes it seem greasy and dirty. This can be due to genetic predisposition and unhealthy diet (too much fats and carbs).

Care: Choose a shampoo that normalizes sebum production designed for daily use. Avoid shampoos with silicone and if possible restrict the consumption of animal fats and sweets.

Dry hair looks dull and is often fragile and brittle. It splits and is difficult to comb and style. It lacks sebum, which provides a lubricating microfilm to protect the hair. Without sufficient protection hair loses its elasticity and softness and becomes easily damaged. Hair often becomes dry because of improper care and traumatic effect of hair dryer, metal combs, hair dyes, etc., which leads to structural changes and hair loss.

Care: Wash your hair once or twice a week. Choose a shampoo with moisturizing oils and special blends of extracts to lock that moisture in. Apply hair firming and moisturizing mask at least once a week.

Besides determining your hair type it is necessary to analyze the density of your hair (the amount of hairs on the head), texture (thickness of individual strands) and strength (porosity and density of hair).

If you notice thinning or receding hair, opt for a specialized shampoo that will fight it back. There are shampoos that combat hair loss by improving scalp circulation, reducing sebum production and even reducing DHT – the hormone responsible for naturally thinning hair. Such shampoos are typically free of sulfates, parabens and other harmful chemicals.

Choosing the right shampoo can not only help you keep your hair healthy long but prevent premature hair loss as well.
