Welcome to another Mane Monday! Today we are discussing Shampoos! Walking into a store to choose a shampoo can be overwhelming with so many available options. Choosing the right shampoo is a trial and error process. Depending on what your hair type, damage and weakness, choosing the wrong shampoo can damaged your hair even more.
First let start with the types of shampoos and what hair types they benefit the most!
5 of Types of Shampoo
- Mild Shampoo: For oily hair choose a mild shampoos and make sure to use regularly to cleans the hair of dirt.
- Moisturizing Shampoo: for dry hair make sure to use a moisturizing shampoo as this will keep the moisture level of the hair high.
- Protein Shampoos: for damaged hair choose a protein based shampoo to help rebuild hair strands.
- Color Safe Shampoo: of course if your hair is dyed or colored treated, be sure to use a color safe shampoo.
- Clarifying Shampoo: is great if you use styling products daily and your hair builds up an excess of products or oils. It also helps remove hard water deposits, chlorine from swimming, or other impurities.
Quick and short list right! So what was the purpose you ask, although the types of shampoos is a short list, going into the store and purchasing one can be an ordinal. With some many different brand, bottles and advertising choosing a couple or every just one can be frustrating. The aforementioned list will at least help you with what type of shampoo you will need and narrow your search. Also I am going to share some of my favorite staples shampoos. When I say staple I have been using these products for years and they are still the best I have found!
My Staple Shampoos
If you have been following me then you know I love Aphogee Products! This was the very first shampoo I used on my healthy hair journey and that was over 9 years ago! This shampoo is specifically made to help reverse and repair damaged hair. It cleans gently and will not harm color, perm or relaxer services. Proteins, emollients and vitamins restore sheen and pliability to hair damaged by chemicals and heat. It is recommended for everyday use on color treated, chemically treated and damage-prone hair.
Surprise another Aphogee product, lol! Told you I loved these products. The Deep Moisture Shampoo is ideal for dry and brittle hair. It is enriched with humectants to help retain moisture as well as protein and smoothing agents to improve manageability, shine and softness. It helps styles last longer and imparts elasticity and vibrancy to dry, lifeless hair.
While I love Design Essential products, they are notorious for changing their formulas on a regular basis. Although I know they do this to keep up with the ever changing industry, I still hate it. This product has been discontinued and replaced with the Oat Protein & Henna Deep Cleansing Shampoo! All and All this is basically a clarifying shampoo. Because of it’s clarifying properties , one lather, results in clean, healthy hair with increased volume and manageability. As all the other product made by Design Essentials I am sure this is an amazing new product as well!
This also has been upgraded to Honey Creme Moisture Retention Shampoo! This is another amazing moisturizing shampoo! It gently cleanses and restores needed moisture to dry or damaged hair. As with all the other product made by Design Essentials, I am confident these are amazing products as well!
