How do you choose the right shampoo?

Well, to help you choose the right shampoo for your hair, of course we recommend you seek the advice of a Root Salon team member who knows your specific needs. But, there is still a wide variety to choose from and it can be confusing so we’ll shed a little light on it now.

One thing is for certain, you should avoid formulas with sulfates, parabens, and phthalates, which can be ultra-drying. The industry has come a long way with the development of fine shampoos that fit this need that still manage to cleanse the hair gently. We tend to look for shampoos that contain ingredients like glycerin and panthenol that are proven to help retain moisture and boost shine. We are not a fan of the new trend in “oil based” shampoos. Usually they just contain a small amount of the oil they are touting as sort of a window dressing and they tend to cut down on the lathering ability of the formula.

Some of our favorite shampoos right now are Aveda’s Dry Remedy and Alfaparf’s Semi Di Lino Frizz Control. Both are both are sulfate and paraben free and both will cleanse your hair gently and leave your hair softer and stronger. Both shampoos are safe for color treated hair as well. Book a complimentary consultation and we will be happy to steer you in the right direction.
