Most people don’t really understand what the words on shampoo and conditioner labels really mean.

Finding the right hair product with no proper documentation is not as easy as you think and sometimes it can seem as an endless search,Guest Posting especially when bumping into words like smoothing, straightening, volumizing or moisturizing while reading the product’s label. The key to finding the best shampoo and conditioner for your hair is learning the meaning of the terms that were mentioned earlier and understanding what kind of scalp and hair type you have.

The amount of oil that your scalp produces may vary from one season to another but you have to keep in mind that if your scalp feels oily, you have to look for words like volumizing, balancing or strengthening on the shampoo labels, while people with a dry scalp need to look for words like moisturizing, hydrating or smoothing. If you are among the lucky people that have a normal scalp – which is in between oily and dry – you can use different shampoos in different seasons, depending on how your scalp feels like.

Knowing what type of scalp you have is not enough when you want to take good care of your hair because another important factor that need to keep in mind when buying a hair products is your hair texture which can be curly, kinky, straight or wavy. Now you probably know what kind of hair you have so next time you’re browsing for a shampoo look for your hair type on the label. If you can’t find any product for your type of hair, you can just buy the one that’s labeled with “For all types of hair”.

Does your hair feel good? If so, the next logical step is to try and make it look better as well, by giving it more volume and smoothness. Many people try to do this by washing their hair harder and more often than before. Stop right there! This is not a solution and it will only make your hair look worse than before. To give your hair more volume, you need to pick a volumizing shampoo that will not only give your hair more volume, but it will also add more strength to it.

For shine and smoothness you just need to look for a clarifying shampoo that will take care of these two problems for you. If you are using conditioner, be aware not to buy a conditioner and also a two-in-one shampoo plus conditioner. Try to choose a light conditioner that rinses away thoroughly because if you do not do so, your hair might feel to smooth and slippery because of the conditioner getting “stuck” on your hair, and that’s the last thing you want.
