Choosing the Right Conditioner For Your Hair

If you choose your conditioner based on what smells the nicest, then you’ve probably got a bottle of bad hair waiting for you in the shower. Here are some simple tips to choose the shampoo that’s most beneficial for your hair.

Curly Hair

Curly hair tends to be dry, and when it is dry, the curls turn to frizz. In order to keep your curls smooth and glossy, you need moisture, and it needs to be lightweight moisture in order to give your curls that coveted bounce. Choose a clear, light moisturizing shampoo for the bounciest results. Use a curl-defining product when you want to bring your curls out; use a regular formulation if you want to let them relax slightly. You won’t be able to relax your hair fully with products alone, but you can get pretty close.

Long or Dry Hair

Hair that’s very long dries out a lot at the ends. Hair that’s naturally dry is just that. If you have dry hair that doesn’t need curls, choose an intense moisturizing formula. Rich, creamy shampoos with natural oils like almond are good for hair like this; they nourish it and seal in moisture. If you need an intensive treatment, apply your moisturizing product, wrap your hair in a warm towel, and remove when the towel is cool. It will help set the moisturizers in your hair.

Short Hair

For style-sensitive short hair, choose a shampoo that makes your hair manageable and obedient. It’s best if your shampoo can add gloss and body to your hair; these are important elements in making a short hairstyle look lively and healthy. A shampoo that you can use every time you wash your hair should be gentle and lack overly intense chemicals, since any kind of scalp irritation you suffer will be easily visible through your hair.

Thick, Stiff Hair

Choose products that soften and moisturize your hair so you can control it better. It may be necessary to style only when your hair is wet, if your hair is thick enough to be hard to restyle when dry. If this is the case, you can use a leave-in conditioner on wet hair to help keep your hair moist and styleable for a little longer, instead of having to rewet your hair if it takes you a while to get to styling your hair after you step out of the shower.
