Hey Ya’ll! Everyone knows what shampoo and conditioner is right? There are so many shampoos and conditioners out there to meet your specific hair needs….Finding out which one ca be tricky.

Shampoo is a form of soap made to cleanse your scalp of all products and debris. Depending on your hair and the state that it is in (dry, dyed, etc.) there is a shampoo that can be used. Not all shampoos are created equal. Here are a few…

Clarifying Shampoo- helps to remove everything from the hair and scalp.

Sulfate Free Shampoo- does nor contain the detergent foaming agent Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. While it still cleanses it does not lather as much.

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is found in soaps, toothpaste, etc.Β It has leaning and emulsifying properties and acts like soap.Β It has the ability to strip the hair of nutrients, but it is and irritant for those who have sensitive skin. Those who can benefit from sodium lauryl sulfate shampoo are those who suffer from dandruff and excessive sebum (oily scalp).

Moisturizing Shampoo- maintains moisture as it cleanses

Color-Safe Shampoo- cleanses while maintaining the color. Also it keeps the color from fading.

Conditioners are designed to replenish the hair with moisture and also provide treatment for the hair.

Deep Conditioning- use when moisture and protein is needed for the hair. It has a base of a heavy cream moisturizer.

Leave-In Conditioner- thinner in consistency and leaves a light layer on the hair

~Quick Tip~ For best results for your hair, use the shampoo and conditioner from the same brand. They are formulated to work together.

Much Love,
