Whether you’re browsing a beauty aisle or scrolling through the internet, it’s likely that you’re faced with an overwhelming number of shampoos, each with different purposes, benefits, and ingredients. Clarifying, anti-breakage, purifying, colour-safe, thickening, the list goes on and on… but which one is right for you? With so many readily available on the market, it’s no surprise that some individuals can take a wrong turn when choosing their shampoo. However, over time this can lead to various hair and scalp issues including dryness, breakage, and colour fade. So, if you have doubts in the shampoo that you’re currently using, we’re here to help determine the right product for your hair type.
Hair damage is more than just dullness and split ends. When the hair is exceptionally damaged, the outer layer, commonly known as the cuticle, develops cracks. Once the cuticle is open, the hair is at further risk to breakage, with typical signs of damage including frizziness and a lack of manageability. If what we’re writing is calling out to you, for damaged hair we’d recommend trying an anti-breakage shampoo that restores the hair’s pH balance, as products with a high pH level have been proven to break down the strands.
Our award-winning Harmony Intensive Care Shampoo has been specifically designed to repair damage using a unique blend of Camelia Seed Oil, Argan Oil and Silk Protein Complex, proven to provide moisture from within. Developed to instantly transform texture and appearance, Harmony leaves hair shiny, healthy looking and manageable and can also help to provide colour protection.
DRY & FRIZZY HAIR
Dryness develops when the hair does not retain moisture, causing the outer layers to break down. There are many factors associated with dry hair, such as diet changes, age, water, and heat styling. Dry hair tends to be brittle to touch, with an increasing amount of flyaways and split ends that can easily tangle and result in further breakage. Individuals with dry hair can also experience an itchy scalp and dandruff.
For those who are reading and relating, why not try our Ritual Daily Cleansing Shampoo? Products from our Ritual range are infused with hydrolysed silk and milk proteins to boost vital moisture and reduce flyaway hair by preventing the bonds from breaking down. The added liquid shea extract is an extra touch for delivering shine and glossiness.
If you have blonde, lightened or grey hair, you may find it useful to invest in a high-quality purple shampoo. Why? Blonde hair is extremely porous, which means it essentially soaks up everything, including air pollution and shower minerals. Secondly, when you lighten your hair, your natural colour is lifted to make room for the new tones. However, as all hair has an element of underlying warm hues, the removal of these can make the red, yellow or orange tones more obvious. To prevent warmer tones appearing and help your hair stay lighter and brighter for longer, purple shampoos are an affordable way to keep the brass at bay between salon visits.
Our blonde customers swear by our best-selling Blonde Purple Brightening Shampoo, specially designed by experts in the field to protect and enhance lightened hair. Blonde has a unique blend of wheat proteins and glycerine for long-lasting colour protection while safely neutralising brassy tones to ensure a brighter finish. Oh, did we mention it’s vegan-friendly?
Fine hair relates to the texture, which is classified in terms of the width of the hair strands, as opposed to the density. A common misconception with fine hair is that it does not require as much hydration as other hair types, as naturally it feels softer and silkier. However, it’s important to note that fine hair does still need a balance of moisture, lipids and proteins, and without proper conditioning, it can quickly become dry, brittle and prone to breakage.
When it comes to fine hair it’s important to get it right, as heavy products can make the hair look greasy and weigh down the strands. Volumising shampoos are designed to open the hair cuticles, ultimately encouraging growth and volume in finer hair. If you’re looking for an award-winning Volumising Shampoo that significantly enhances volume without creating build-up, our Amplify range could be the shampoo of your every hair dream. Amplify Volumising Shampoo is formulated to effectively cleanse and enhance hair by using a unique blend of panthenol, silk, milk and wheat proteins.
