How To Choose The Best Products For Your Hair
Just like clothing, shampoos and conditioners are not one size fits all. It is important to customize your shampoo and conditioner to your specific hair type in order for your hair to be in its healthiest state. Here are some tips on what types of shampoo/conditioners to use based on the type of hair you have.
Dry hair- If your hair seems to always be dry, you should use a moisturizing or hydrating shampoo and conditioner. These types of shampoos and conditioners add the needed moisture to the hair, minimizing the use for extra products like oil, sheen, and grease. Additionally, the hair produces its own oils, so adding even more product on top of what is produced naturally leads to product build up. This is when the hair is so lifeless and limp, and often feels greasy to the touch. Product build up leads to more frequent shampoos, which doesn't benefit dry hair due to the moisture that's needed is being continuously shampooed out of the hair.

Oily hair- If your hair is very oily, try using a clarifying or deep cleansing shampoo. Clarifying shampoos get rid of all the excessive oil and any product build up on the hair. After shampooing with this type of shampoo often gives the hair that squeaky clean feeling. For oily hair, it would also be beneficial to skip the creme based conditioner and opt for a leave-in, since oily hair produces lots of oil on its own. Recommendation: Silk Hydration by L.

Dandruff- If your hair has dandruff in it very often, a dandruff shampoo needs to be used on the hair. Use this shampoo weekly, and also use the conditioner associated with it. For the shampoo to treat your dandruff effectively, shampoo the hair once, working up a good lather and rinse. On the second shampoo, work up another good lather, let sit for 10 min., then rinse. Proceed with conditioner. Do this routine once per week and you should notice a drastic change if not total elimination of the dandruff. If no changes are seen at all, see a dermatologist.
