As with all personal care products there are tons of different types of men's shampoo and conditioner out there for today's men to choose from. To help narrow down your choices we have decoded what all of those “hair type” shampoos and conditioners are all about.
Men's Shampoo Guide
This type of shampoo is specially formulated to help people with dry, itchy scalps that flake of in dandruff. If you do not have dandruff do not use this type of shampoo. Because it can cause excessive dryness and create a problem. If you’re not sure try alternating a moisturizing shampoo in with a dandruff shampoo. Do this every other day to see if you can see a difference.
Thickening Shampoo –
These are great for guys with thinning hair. Thickening men's shampoo or voluminous as it is sometimes called generally has glycerine as its main ingredient. Glycerine aids the hair in retaining water and in turn swells the hair follicle to make the hair stand up giving your hair a fuller appearance.
Oily/ Dry/ Normal Shampoo –
The scalp type shampoos are individually formulated to remove excess oil, moisturize dry scalps or give you an overall clean without stripping too many natural oils. If you don’t know what category you fall under chances are you have a normal hair type.
You will also notice for every men's shampoo type there is a matching conditioner. Whichever shampoo you choose pick out a conditioner to match. Use them right after washing for best results.
Shampoo & Conditioner 2 in 1 –
These are the choice of most men. If you don’t want to be like your girlfriend and have 10 bottles of product in the shower stick to the 2 in 1 varieties. Head & Shoulders makes a great 2 in 1 dandruff shampoo and you can find 2 in 1’s for every hair type out there.
