First, before choosing a shampoo, you need to determine what type your hair is.

There are three main types:

  • Dry - this type gets dirty after 5-7 days, the hair is inclined to section, hard to the touch, often tangled. The action of shampoo for this type of hair should include moisturizing and gentle care. The presence of oil, calendula, chamomile is desirable in it.
  • Normal - this type of hair requires washing after 2-3 days and does not require any special care, only general maintenance ingredients.

These representatives of surfactants can accumulate in the body, especially in the liver, and lead to unpleasant consequences.

It is worth giving preference to brands that include such safe surfactants: Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, Decyl Glucoside or Decyl Polyglucose, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate. The site presents shampoos with such components.

  2. Brush frequently to massage the scalp. With blood circulation in the hair follicles, the hair will become thicker and grow faster;
  3. Wash your hair with cool water, around 40 degrees. Under the influence of not high temperatures, the hair scales will be sealed, and therefore they will become more obedient and less chopped.
