NOPE, not all shampoos are created equal

This Healthy Hair can be yours, the right shampoo does make a difference


I’m almost sure if i peek into many female’s bathroom shelf I would find varying numbers of shampoos & conditioners….not to mention a girl with relaxed hair because everytime a stylist or a friend tells her that something works she goes out & buy it…..even I am a bit guilty, but then its my job to test products out! Well this is much is true a $200 shampoo is not the same as an $800 shampoo & i’m going to go on & explain why. Not all shampoos are created equal so dont for a second feel that shampoos are only to remove dirt.

Technically speaking, your cheap shampoo is cleaning your hair just as well as her more expensive shampoo. However, it’s the secondary impact of shampoo (the things that shampoo does beyond removing dirt and grime) where the difference lies. The quality of the shampoo you use–more specifically, the ingredients in the shampoo—have a significant impact on the look, feel and health of your hair

The difference between a high-quality shampoo and a low-quality shampoo is the chemical used as the surfactant, i.e., the cheaper the shampoo, the worse the surfactant.

Chemically treated hair can never get enough hydration because relaxed hair is very porous, so it’s difficult for moisture to stay trapped in the cuticle so definately use a super-moisturizing shampoo for your relaxed hair. 
If your hair is natural, have a consultation done to determine your hair type & use shampoos specifically designed for that. Clarifying shampoos are also very important. They remove build up left behind by gels, pomades, mousses and other products used to add moisture to the hair. A clarifying shampoo is more acidic than a regular shampoo and as such should only be used once every 4-6 weeks
So i’m gonna help by giving you some shampoo suggestions if you cant always make it to the salon to have regular shampoo services which is something I suggest because hair is very fragile when it is wet & many dont know how to shampoo the hair without tangling, remove tangle without tearing or how to properly dry hair without damaging it.
NOTE: Very foamy shampoos are the most drying for obvious reasons so choose one that does not foam too much. You may have to try a few different products to find one that is both kind to your hair and your pocket!
Here goes….

1. A reasonably priced shampoo line that does not foam too much is the Cream of Nature shampoo line. I STRONGLY recommend this to my clients for home care. Some of them also have great moisturizing benefits hence do not leave the hair dry in spite of the sulphates.

2. Paul Mitchell is a tad pricey but an excellent line for damaged/chemically-treated hair as it very hydrating

3. MIZANI Botanifying is my personal fave, this is a salon brand so instructions should be followed as in match it with the Fulfyl Conditioner. This too is a higher end product.

4. Nexxus Therapee is an intense hydration shampoo that is also great for naturally fine hair. This too is moderately priced

I could go on for days but those are my top 4 SO……..

…….next time you’re shopping shampoo, spend more time than usual reading the label. Get crazy and buy two higher-quality bottles. The extra time and pennies you spend on a shampoo with a high quality surfactant will be worthwhile thanks to the impact you, and the ladies & men, will notice in the look, feel, and health of your hair.

One love,
