10 Aug How To Choose The Right Shampoo For Your Scalp
- Not all shampoos are created with excellence. The cheap stuff you buy from the grocery store is not the same as the expensive stuff women use.
- Truth is, all shampoos clean your hair – it’s what they do afterwards to your scalp that can create problems.
- The difference between a high-quality shampoo and a low-quality shampoo is the chemical used as the surfactant. The cheaper the shampoo, the worse the surfactant.
- Sodium Lauryl Sufoacetate is a high-quality surfactant. It creates a rich lather that removes surface oil, dirt and bacteria.
- Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate is a low-quality surfactant. Notice how it’s practically the same wording as the good stuff? That’s how they get you. It’s an inexpensive foaming agent made by mixing sulfuric acid, monododecyl ester, and sodium salt.
- If your hair type is thin or fine, use a volumizing or thickening formula that adds texture.
- If you have curly hair, chances are your hair is frizzy, so you want something that will soften your strands.
- If you have oily hair, look for something with Tea Tree Oil to bring balance to your scalp.
- Make sure you know how to choose the right conditioner for your scalp.
If you have normal hair that’s pretty balanced, don’t think just anything will work for you—you still need to use a quality shampoo. If you have dandruff, you need to use a medicated shampoo specifically for the dandruff removal. The shampoo we recommend that works on every hair type and is 100% natural is Surface Warfare.
