2. Define your hair type
FINE HAIR : look for volumising shampoos that can boost your hair without weighing it down.
THICK HAIR : Hydrating or moisturizing shampoos are great for adding moisture , shine and smoothness to thick hair that lacks moisture .
STRAIGH HAIR : Smoothing or straight hair shampoo are typically rich in extra moisturizers and smoothing agents that are meant to help seal the cuticles and provide a great start for straight and smooth styles .
CURLY HAIR : Those with curly hair should look for very moisturizing shampoos for curly hair that contains ingredients that reduce frizz without weighing down the curls .
DAMAGED / COLORED / BRITTLE HAIR
Look for a protein based shampoo with Keratin and moisture.
If your hair has colour always choose a colour save product.
The extra protein or keratin will strengthen hair shaft and strengthening the highlighted or brittle hair.
When choosing a hair care product choose a salon professional hair care brand , The reason for salon products being more expensive is that it's a acid base on 3.5 - 4.5 on the PH spectrum which is closer to your skin and Hair PH which helps that hair stays healthier.
Many chemical ridden products and harsh treatments can push hair towards the Alkaline end of the PH spectrum which disrupts the delicate balance and causes damage to the hair structure.
