Many people, including clients at our hair replacement salon, believe all hair care products in Greensboro, NC are the same. This is not true. You not only want to choose products based on their quality, but also on your hair type and specific styling needs. There are shampoos that can be too harsh for your hair type, which can start hair loss, or at the very least reduce the condition of your hair. Here are some suggestions based on what will make your hair look its best:
- Adding volume: Fine, straight hair often looks lifeless and flat. Using harsh and heavy products will enhance this situation. Thickening shampoos and conditioners will add volume without weighing hair down. Avoid using conditioner anywhere except at the ends, as that will also help with fullness. Use lighter styling products, too, like mousse over gel. Dry shampoos are a bonus for fine and straight hair, as they add texture but rinse out in the next few showers so they will not flatten hair.
- Maintaining condition: The easiest and most flexible hair type is thick and straight. There are many style options and most products work on it very well. You still need to proceed with caution to maintain its condition. Styling oil works best for thick hair over gel or mousse. It supports volume and controls frizz without a flattening effect. Shine spray also boosts styles, since thick hair can sometimes appear dull.
- Caring for curly or kinky hair: This hair type is most in need of specialized style products. Using the wrong product with curly or kinky hair will compromise condition and make it look unkempt. The most effective products for curly hair list water as the first ingredient. If you use conditioner, choose a deep conditioning variety, but only rinse it out halfway. Work in a leave-in condition when you are finished so your curls look healthier. Sulfite-free shampoos are the best for cleaning, and be sure to look for conditioners with panthenol. If your curls present a finer texture, use light conditioners so you do not weigh them down.
- Controlling frizz: Thick hair and wavy hair are vulnerable to frizz. Many clients react with rich shampoos and thick conditioners, thinking that will calm it down. However, this has the opposite effect. If you face frizz, look for shampoos and conditioners labeled as frizz-fighting. These products contain silicone, which is effective for this issue. Oil-based styling products are also helpful and will reduce the appearance of split ends.
Once you find hair products that work for you, stick with them. Changing constantly will compromise hair condition, and you will no longer see good results. If you seek products for hairpieces or hair replacement treatments, you will need to follow a different care regimen. Ask your stylist about this so you do not compromise the quality of your hairpiece or hair treatments.
