Shampoo Made Easy
That stunning head of hair you desire might only be one wash away… if you use the right shampoo. But with such an extensive array of shampoos at the Hairhouse Warehouse to choose from, how do you know which is best suited to your hair?
Which shampoo is best for your hair type?
A great question if you want hair like a supermodel, and who doesn’t? Start with ascertaining if your hair is oily, dry or normal. Usually your hair type follows your skin type, so oily skin means oily hair and dry skin, dry hair. If your hair drives you nuts because it looks lank and lifeless one day after washing, it is probably oily. If it is prone to frustrating frizz and fly-away fluffiness, it is most likely dry. And if it is neither, lucky you – you are probably blessed with normal hair.
Choosing the best shampoo for your hair type comes down to other factors too, such as whether your hair is coloured, fine, curly, damaged, thinning, lifeless – it can be a long list. If you’re not sure what your hair type is, ask your hairdresser.
Once you know your hair type, the best shampoo will be the one that gently cleanses and nourishes your hair, providing you with a crowning glory worthy of supermodel status.
Which shampoos promote hair growth?
If you want to promote hair growth to address thinning hair, Nanogen have a range of treatment shampoos to promote natural hair growth and reparation. The Nioxin range of System Scalp Treatments also target noticeably thinning hair, while Redken, Loreal Professionnel, Nak and Bosley are brands with a range of shampoos containing ingredients to provide optimum growth and strengthening conditions.
These brands have shampoos specially designed to nourish and stimulate the scalp, while protecting the hair and stimulating hair growth, perfect for growing long, luxurious locks which gleam from root to tip.
How often should you shampoo your hair?
It depends on your hair type and your lifestyle. Oily hair needs washing more often than dry hair. On average, shampooing every two to three days is fine for normal or dry hair. Oily hair should be washed as often as needed with a gentle shampoo specifically for oily hair. If you have an active lifestyle where your hair might frequently be exposed to dusty, dirty conditions you may want to wash it each time it becomes dirty. The same goes for sweaty hair, if you undertake vigorous exercise.
There is no definitive answer to how often you should shampoo, as it is best determined by the state of your hair.
What are the most popular shampoo brands?
Some shampoo brands have stood the test of time, proving their popularity over many years. Brands such as Davroe, DeLorenzo, Goldwell, Joico, KMS, L’Oreal, make, Matrix, Paul Mitchell, Redken, Schwarzkopf and Wella are well-loved brands which continue to develop innovative shampoos to meet our demands for perfect hair, every day.
Fudge, Muk, Nak, Juuce, Alfaparf, and Sexy Hair are also popular brands with effective shampoos for a range of hair types. At Hairhouse Warehouse you will find all the popular brands with a shampoo perfectly suited to your hair type.
What is dry shampoo?
Here’s a fun fact: commercially-made dry shampoo has been around since the 1940’s but evidence of dry shampoos using substances like clay powder or starch date back as early as the 1700’s.
Dry shampooing is a way to quickly clean your hair without water. Dry shampoos absorb oil from your hair and scalp to freshen the look when you can’t wash your hair. Most of the top selling brands stocked at Hairhouse Warehouse include a dry shampoo including those for light hair, dark hair and coloured hair. They are handy when your hair needs a quick pick-me-up between washes, but they don’t replace regular shampoos.
