1. Frizzy hair
You hate the days you have to wash your hair, because it leaves your tresses feeling dry, frizzy and lifeless. We get it, what we don’t get is why you are still using the same old shampoo, when it clearly isn’t doing you any good? It is robbing your hair of its natural oils and leaving it looking grizzly! The Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil And Lavender Aroma Smooth And Serene Shampoo are currently one of the best shampoos for frizzy hair. Free from parabens and dyes, this gentle formula is infused with the goodness of argan oil to tame frizzy hair.
2. Damaged hair
Regular use of heat styling tools, chemical hair treatments and colouring can make your hair look damaged and lifeless. Apart from applying a nourishing hair mask once a week, it is also important to choose the best shampoo for damaged hair. The Dove Intense Repair Shampoo For Damaged Hair is formulated to treat this concern and will repair hair with every wash. Infused with the nourishing goodness of milk, it will leave your hair feeling soft, smooth and shiny. It is also important to use a conditioner from the same range for best results.
3. Hair fall
Hair fall is a common problem and it can be quite disheartening to watch your hair fall off every time you run your fingers through it. However, taking care of your tresses can reverse hair fall and make it stronger. Oil your hair regularly, apply a suitable shampoo for treating hair loss such as the Indulekha Bringha Anti Hairfall Hair Cleanser. Formulated using Ayurvedic ingredients such as Bhringhraj, amla, neem, tulsi, shikakai and other ingredients, it is perfect for anyone suffering from the problem of hair fall. With regular use, it will reduce hair fall and leave you with stronger and healthier hair.
Dandruff is another common hair problem that affects both men and women. If not treated on time, dandruff can get worse, creating an everyday embarrassing situation. The easiest way to control this problem is by using best shampoo formulated to tackle dandruff. The Dove Dandruff Care Shampoo conditions and nourishes the scalp to prevent dryness that causes dandruff. It has the ability to remove dandruff with every wash and leave you with smooth hair and a clean scalp.
5. Oily hair/scalp
If your hair feels oily or greasy the very next day after a hair wash, chances are your current shampoo isn’t removing all the dirt and oil from your scalp effectively. You need to give your scalp a thorough detox, and for this, you can create a scalp scrub by mixing sea salt and olive oil and massaging it into your scalp using your fingertips. Also replace your shampoo with the TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo, formulated with the goodness of neem and ginseng, this is the best shampoo for oily hair and scalps that require deep cleansing from oil and product build up.
6. Fine hair
Fine hair can be quite tricky to style and you can’t use too many products because they can weigh your hair down and make it look even thinner. You need to invest in a shampoo that contains fewer moisturising ingredients and focuses more on adding volume to your hair. The Sunsilk Coconut Water & Aloe Vera Volume Hair Shampoo refreshes and cleanses your hair without weighing it down. Another trick while applying shampoo to fine hair is to focus on the roots where dirt, oil and product residue reside, massaging your roots gently will also add some much-needed volume. Apply conditioner only at the tips to prevent your hair from looking flat.
7. Coloured hair
While coloured hair is not really a hair concern, it can be considered a hair type. After getting your hair chemically treated, it is important to use a shampoo formulated specifically to take care of colour-treated hair. Conventional shampoos contain harsh chemicals that can wash away the colour from your hair and make it look several shades light, not to mention leave your hair feeling dry. The best shampoo for hair that is coloured is one that is formulated to protect and clean hair without washing off the colour. The TRESemmé Color Revitalize Shampoo gently cleanses hair while infusing your tresses with moisture that turns colour-treated hair soft and manageable.
