Picking the right shampoo for your hair is really picking the right shampoo for your scalp; your conditioner should be chosen based on hair type. Here is a guide on how you should select the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type:
If your hair gets greasy easily, try using lighter formulas which don’t leave a residue. It is likely that your scalp is what’s getting greasy while your ends aren’t quite as hydrated. Shampoos with salicylic acid as an active ingredient can help get rid of excess oil on your scalp. Meanwhile, your conditioner can be more moisturizing than the shampoo. The conditioner should still be lighter than it is thick.
When you want more volume, you can choose a shampoo and conditioner that is a bit waxier to get some lift at the roots. Conditioners should have polymers that make hair feel thicker. For both shampoo and conditioners, stay away from silicones that are too heavy for fine thin hair.
Hair that’s frizzy is usually the result of undefined curls and waves. Moisturizing cleansing conditioners can actually replace shampoo in order to help your hair. If you can’t find one and would like to use a shampoo, base your choice on how oily or dry your scalp is. Pair it with a conditioner made for frizzy hair.
