Hair Fall
November 6, 2018

Traffic, pollution, and dust! If you manage to step out of home one day and not encounter these, you feel blessed. Don't you? But such a day has never come in most of our lives and so our first instinct is to come back home and hit the shower. We feel relaxed after washing our hair and lying in front of our TV's!

But, are you facing a hair loss problem and losing a lot of hair every day? Have you considered the fact that this might be because you are using the wrong shampoo! Picking the right shampoo plays an important role in hair fall control.

How Do we Choose the Best Hair Fall Treatment Shampoo?

We walk into any cosmetic products shop and see a huge section allotted for shampoos. Different hair types and needs require various shampoos designed for them. These include shampoos for dry, normal oily hair, or for volumizing, glossy, anti-dandruff, and colour-protecting purposes.

With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide which one to choose. It can be overwhelming to choose. Every product tries to be the best, competing for a spot in your shopping cart and eventually in your bathroom.

How do you choose which one is the best for hairfall solution? Is it the expensive one, or the one that claims to be natural, or is it the one that is mild and 'suits' even a baby's hair? That is what this blog article is about, helping you with the tips to choose the right shampoo for hair fall control.

Top 10 Tips To Choose The Right Shampoo For Hair Fall Control

  1. Your Beloved Hair Love Nature Too

    As much as you love nature, your hair loves nature too. It hates the chemicals mixed in the shampoos you often use to treat it. Make a smart choice for your hair and deal with hair loss conditions effectively. Choose a shampoo that has natural active ingredients.

    Try to avoid shampoos containing Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Myreth Sulfate, Siloxanes, Derivatives of Lauryl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol and Olefin Sulfonate. Best recommended is to use shampoos containing Thuja Occidentalis.

  2. Know Your Hair Type

    Choose a shampoo designed for your hair type based on whether you have dry hair, oily hair, or a combination. Without this no matter how many shampoos you try, they will never work right. It's like asking your car to run on water instead of petrol. Just think, how can shampoo for dry hair clean oily hair?

  3. Right PH Level for the Right Shampoo

    Ideally, your shampoo should have a pH close to 6.5, because this is the optimum pH of the scalp. Not allowing your scalp and hair to become dry, it will retain the moisture required to keep your hair healthy and shiny.

  4. To Lather or Not to Lather

    Keep in mind that the amount of lather does not determine whether the shampoo is working or not. Actually, the less lather, the better, because it means that the molecules of the shampoo are grasping more dirt and oils

  5. Coloured Hair Demands Extra Care

    Thinking about making a change? Most people look to celebrities for inspiration when choosing a new hair colour. Top shades like deep brown, vibrant blonde and red have been a hit for 2016.

    But, colouring hair brings in a lot of trouble as well. Hair becomes dry, brittle, messy and dead. All you need to do is give them special attention and care. Protect them from UV rays; use special shampoos available in the market for coloured locks!

  6. Use Anti Dandruff Shampoos

    For itchy, greasy and scaly scalp, use anti-dandruff shampoos:

    Dandruff symptoms include white flakes of dead skin on hair and shoulders, along with an itchy, scaly scalp. Choose an anti-dandruff shampoo, if you spot any of these symptoms.

    It helps in hair fall control and keeps hair clean, lustrous, free from flakes, and itching. If symptoms persist, visit a trichologist to get the treatment for seborrhoeic dermatitis (a severe form of dandruff).

    For curly, coarse, frizzy hair, choose a creamy shampoo that tames the frizz it helps to retain moisture in your hair.

    Choose a clear shampoo that is mild and can be used daily for fine hair that is limp or oily.

    For damaged or dry hair, use moisturising shampoos they help to smoothen the hair and detangle easily.

    Use creamy shampoos for chemically-treated hair like permed or straightened hair. It needs extra care and nourishment to prevent damage.

    Even if you are using the best hair fall shampoo, also following the hair care routine and still suffering excessive hair loss then it might be a matter of concern. Consider seeking professional advice. When looking for hair treatment make sure you take treatment that treats your hair loss from the root.
