How To Choose the Right Shampoo for Your Hair and Scalp

What is the right Shampoo for my Scalp?

How To Choose the Right Shampoo for Your Hair and Scalp The first step into choosing the right shampoo is to know your scalp type. Remember that shampoos used to clean your hair also clean your scalp to remove dirt, hair products and excess oil. Therefore it’s as important to consider your scalp when choosing a daily shampoo.

The general rule of the thumb is to choose a shampoo based on your current scalp condition. The main job of a shampoo is to act as a cleansing agent and so taking your scalp into consideration is important. After this you can then use conditioner to treat your hair. Below are some basic tips on choosing the right shampoo for your scalp type.

The Right Shampoo for Oily Scalp

If you notice that your scalp is often oily or greasy even though you’ve tried different shampoos and have even tried washing daily to putting it in between days without any luck, then you definitely have an oily scalp. Here are some helpful tips on how you can choose the right shampoo for your scalp:

  • Avoid hydrating, moisturising, smoothing shampoos. These shampoos add too much moisture to your oily scalp.
  • It is best to look for shampoos that have labels that say balancing, strengthening, volumising. These products usually have less moisturising effects which can effectively remove excess oil.
  • If your scalp is really oily then try a super clarifying treatment shampoo.
  • Try to spend extra time working your shampoo into your scalp to help break up the oil. Make sure that you also rinse very well.
  • After you shampoo, make sure that you work your conditioner just within the mid-shaft and ends of your hair. Avoid working it into your scalp. Rinse well.

The Right Shampoo for Dry Scalp

When the scalp is often dry, flaky or itchy at times, this can be a sign that you have dry scalp. Having dry scalp can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing at times, that is why it’s important to know what type of shampoo to use. Check out the tips below to help you find the right shampoo for dry scalp:

  • Fortifying, strengthening and volumising shampoos are not your best friend. These types of shampoos strip your scalp of necessary moisture. Try to avoid them.
  • If your scalp is extremely dry, itchy and flaky you might want to try formulated shampoos with ingredients like tea tree and menthol which usually helps moisturise the scalp. For scalps that are only slightly dry, that has minimal itching and does not flake, you can try shampoos that are hydrating, moisturising and smoothing.
  • Properly shampoo and rinse your hair even if you have dry scalp. This will help your hair have the best result.

These are just some of the many helpful tips that can help you identify the right shampoo for your hair and scalp type. And if you have sensitive scalp or skin or any other scalp conditions like Scalp Psoriasis or Seborrheic Dermatitis make sure to use a shampoo that is made for sensitive scalp and skin.

If you are still unsure on what product you should try then it will be best if you can consult with a specialist to help identify your scalp type, which will then give you an idea on the right shampoo to use.
