Selecting the best shampoo for your hair type

Choosing the best shampoo for your hair type can be stressful especially if you are looking for a natural shampoo. To sport a glorious head of hair, it’s important to use hair care products that are adapted to your hair type as well as the condition it’s in. There are plenty of natural ingredients that work for your hair type. To name a few: soya, quinoa, pomegranate… let nature come to your rescue in the shampoo and conditioner aisle!

Best shampoo for fine hair

Fine hair tend to lack volume and texture. Is your hair flat, fragile and difficult to style? Your secret weapon: shampoo and conditioner that contains soy protein to thicken fine hair. Since hair strands are mostly keratin, protein-rich soya does them a world of good.

You prefer solid shampoos? Soy proteins are also part of the formula of this shampoo bar. Use it with this volumizing conditioner bar that contains nourishing oils like coconut oil and argan oil to bring shine and flexibility to your hair.

Quinoa protein contains a large amount of lysine, known to stimulate hair growth and repair, while the jojoba protein hydrates naturally. Be sure to use a good conditioner for maximum hydration and shine!

5 hair care tips to improve your routine

In addition to using products adapted to your hair type, follow these five tips to improve your hair care routine:

  1. Pay attention to your scalp.

    When washing your hair, first gently rub the scalp (you don’t want to encourage excess sebum production), then attack the strands. Use lukewarm water, not hot.
  2. Rinse your hair thoroughly.

    Always rinse liberally to remove any shampoo and conditioner residues. Badly rinsed hair will be duller.
  3. Only brush dry hair.

    Avoid brushing your hair when it’s wet. Wet hair is more fragile and likely to break. For the same reason, do not dry your hair by rubbing it with a towel. Instead, blot it gently. Finally, do not wrap your hair in a towel.
  4. Brush your hair everyday.

    Daily brushing is important. It helps spread natural oils through the hair, clears the scalp of impurities and removes strands that are ready to fall. Do it morning and evening, but be gentle!
  5. Use your heating accessories sparingly.

    Avoid blow-drying or straightening your hair every day. When blow-drying, keep the hair dryer moving and not too close to the head (about 15 cm away). Let your hair air-dry from time to time.
