Generally  the first  step which will be taken by most of us will be  changing  the shampoo.

7 tips to choose right shampoos for your hair

Shampoo never helps in restoring or changing the texture of our hair and neither do they help in nourishing  hair.Shampoo which claims to nourish  our hair contains nourishing ingredients which remains on the surface of your hair for some period of time.

There are some simple ways of choosing the right kind of shampoos for your hair

What exactly is shampoo –

Shampoo is a simple solution which is used to clean the outer layer of the hair.There are shampoos which even go to the root level of the hair and clean it inside out but no matter what company claims but shampoos do not provide food for the hair.

Few tips  while choosing a good shampoo are :-

1. Try to know your hair and how they react in different environment and temperature.This helps in choosing the right shampoo for the hair.One can also take the help of a professional dermatologist in identifying your hair or in choosing the right shampoo.

2. For oily hair mild shampoos should be used depending upon how oily one hairs get.Regular use of shampoos cleans the hair of dirt.

3.Normal hairs generally suffer from scalp and itching issues therefore a shampoo with a mild detergent keeps the moisture level of hair undamaged .

4. For dry hair choose a shampoo which doesn’t have detergents.Choosing a shampoo which keeps the moisture level of the hair high without much of reactions  works fine for dry hair.

5.For curly hair moisturizing shampoo works best and for kinky kind of hair protein shampoo.

6.If you are using protein based shampoo then reading the label of the shampoos is always advisable.Protein should be the first ingredients mentioned in the shampoo and next one is  shea butter and glycerin.

7.If your hair are dyed or colored then used shampoo which are color safe.
