There are confusing many hair products on the market today. If you have decision anxiety, you should read this.
Your hair is the crown of the work and should be treated accordingly. The good news is that you do not have to ruin your treatments at exclusive hairdressing salons. Regular hair care at home is just as good, provided your hair is not too damaged.
The following guide makes hair-raising product decisions a pure childhood:
Make sure you know what you want
What does your hair need most – a product that provides shine, volume, antifreeze, retains color longer, or repairs damaged hair? By having a clear picture of what you want to achieve, choosing the right one is quicker. This way, you can avoid buying unnecessary extra products that will only stay standing and collect dust in your bathroom cabinet.
It is important to determine whether you have problems that require the help of a specialist or whether your hair is healthy enough to be mainly cared for at home. You may need professional help if you have scalp problems or worry about hair loss.
What type of hair do you have?
Coarse and dry hair requires products that make it softer, while fine and thin hair often looks greasy and therefore needs cleansing and gentle products that counteract this. Colored hair, in turn, responds well to protein-based shampoos. Read the product labels/descriptions carefully to determine which products are right for your hair type.
Read the product labels
The last thing you need is a product that gives you irritated scalp or hair loss. So be careful and read the label if the product contains any allergens or agents that may cause irritation. If you are not sure if a product can cause irritation, ask the retailer or hairstylist for help. Hair products sometimes contain alcohol, sulfates, parabens, propylene glycol and other artificial and natural ingredients (eg cocamide from coconuts) that can irritate the skin.
More is more
Once you have decided on which products to buy home and try, do not be afraid to invest a lot. Wash your hair with the shampoo and conditioner at least twice a day for the next three days. It helps to remove the last traces of the products you have used before and reveals how the new products react with your hair. After this initial “cleansing period”, you can continue to wash your hair as usual, i.e. as often as you usually do.
Remember: When it comes to your hair, it is worth investing in good and professional products. Combine these with regular haircuts at a good hairdresser, because fine hair is the main thing!
