There’s a lot of choice on the market when it comes to shampoo! For this reason alone, it can be tempting to stick with an old, favourite product, but having a clear idea of what your hair type is, and which shampoos can work with that to give you lustrous locks is certainly worth it. Read on to find out more about your hair type, and what shampoos could leave your hair feeling healthy, silky and gorgeous.

Dry hair

One of the most common hair problems is dry hair. Caused by a whole range of factors, including genetics, lifestyle, and environment, many of us suffer from dull, moisturise-starved locks at one time or another. A good nourishing product, like American Crew’s Moisturising Shampoo, and Matrix’s Total Results Moisture Me Rich Shampoo will give you deep-down conditioning, without adding weight.



Greasy hair

One of the trickier hair types to manage is greasy hair. Often, the oily roots are more of a problem, and the wrong shampoo could leave you with a double whammy of dry ends and greasy roots. Products like L’Oreal Elvive Clay Oily Roots Shampoo will help you stay on top of both issues, by gently nourishing your hair from top to tip.



Fine hair

Because fine hair gets weighed down much easier than other hair types, it’s important to get the right product to give your locks all the nourishment it needs, without looking flat. Volumising shampoos work wonders, by coating individual strands in a weightless formula. Examples include Giovanni’s Root 66 Max Volume Shampoo, and Sexy Hair’s Big Extra Volume Shampoo.



Thick hair

The envy of most, those with thick hair can declare that having it isn’t always a walk in the park. Left to its own devices, thicker tresses can become unruly and coarse. A moisturising, smoothing product like Daily Defense’s Shampoo Argan Oil, and Schwarzkopf’s Gloss Liquid Silk Shampoo can do the trick when you need to tame thicker hair types.

Curly hair

Treated right, curly hair can look thick, bouncy and amazing! But this temperamental hair type is also prone to frizz and dryness, so you’ll need a good shampoo to keep it looking in top shape. Check out shampoos like Kerastase’s Discipline Smooth In Motion Shampoo, and L’Oreal’s Elvive Curl Nourishment Shampoo.



Coloured and grey hair

Taking care of coloured and greying hair takes a whole different approach. If you want dyed hair to look shiny and vibrant for longer, look to products like Revlon’s ProYou Colour Shampoo. Similarly, if you have grey hair you’ll need a shampoo that smooths coarser greys and prevents brassiness, just like Trevor Sorbie’s Silver Shampoo.

Thinning hair

If you have thinning hair, you may want to try and few new products to encourage hair growth, or to make your hair look thicker and more vibrant. Caffeine shampoos are a popular choice for some, as they aim to stimulate hair growth at the scalp.
