So you are looking for the best shampoo? There are so many hair shampoos on the market, how do you know what's good and what's not? Let´s take a look at the best hair shampoos and generally good shampoos for your needs.
First thing you have to decide is what do you need from your shampoo? What I mean by that is are you looking for a general shampoo?
Are you looking to get a thickening shampoo as you have fine hair.
Do you require a moisturizing shampoo as you suffer from dry hair?
These are factors you need to consider...
A good quality shampoo will usually cost a bit more than a super market shampoo as they contain certain ingredients.
All ranges have different functions like for dry hair or oily hair and for colored hair. Another popular one is for thinning hair.
Redken have a full range of special shampoos which all serve a different purpose for your hair.
Let's take a look at some of the better Shampoos:
1) Dry and Damaged Hair
Damaged hair caused by coloring and perms for instance, break down the natural keratin in the hair. This causes the hair to look dull and dry. So when looking for a shampoo, look for one that contains keratin to replenish your hair.
Option - Keratin Complex Keratin Care Shampoo
2) Oil & Greasy Hair - Best Shampoo
This can be caused by an over active oil-making gland. You want to be using a shampoo that is going to remove the oil but at the same time hydrate your hair and scalp.
Options - Redken Hair Cleansing Cream or Tisserand Tea Tree + Deep Cleansing Shampoo
Remember to really wash your scalp as this is where the oil is produced.
3) Fine Hair- Best Shampoo
Thinning hair can be a problem for many woman and men. By using a good hair thickening shampoo you can have healthy hair in no time. You want to use a shampoo that will give your hair volume. These shampoos are formulated to open the hair cuticle and treat the hair.
Option - Operation Glam Larger-than-life-shampoo
4) Color Safe Shampoo
You need a shampoo that is not going to strip your beautiful new color but rather enhance it and make it last longer. Always check the PH level of the shampoo, make sure it is not very acidic or alkaline.
Good shampoos for color treated hair will contain an oil color or algae to protect the color of the hair.
Options: Pureology serious color care or Creme of Nature Argan Oil Shampoo.

Best Hair Shampoo - What to Buy
Okay, so you go to the supermarket and you see all the different kinds of shampoos and you really don’t know what is the best to use. It can be so confusing with all these different ranges of shampoos and conditioners.
There are shampoos for:
You even get a cleansing cream shampoo which is designed to strip the hair of any oils. Even that stubborn oil, the thick black oil from a motor car.
I once had a client who was in a bad car accident and her hair landed flat bang into the thickest of thickest black car oil.
She tried everything to remove this from her hair and nothing took it out. she even tried dish washing liquid...
I put the Redken cleansing cream shampoo in hair and emulsified it for 5 minutes. It broke down the oil particles in her hair and he oil came out. Needless to say she was so happy.
Another client had her last day at school where all the kids go mad and for some reason they decided to put oil and garlic in their hair. The crazy things people do.
Anyways we used the special cleansing cream shampoo once again, for some reason the garlic oil was much more difficult to remove than the thick black car oil. Even still she left the salon her hair was beautiful clean hair.
So what you really have to do is decide what you are personally looking for in a shampoo??? Say to yourself what type of hair do I have and what do I need to fix?
There are two ways your hair can be damaged, either it will be chemically damaged or machanical.
Chemical damage is from having too many tints or hair coloring treatments. I once went to a hair seminar and the hairstylist said sometimes he will get a client who comes in and their hair looks fried. Hair that is chemically damaged needs alot of tender loving care.
Mechanical damage comes from using hot irons or using the hair dryer too much. This is not as severe as chemical damage but it still needs good treatment.
Salon shampoos are more expensive than a supermarket shampoos but are better quality. You can get very good advice from your hairstylist, they will advise you on what’s the best shampoo for you to use.
