Choosing your shampoo
Choosing the right shampoo for your hair really depends on what you're looking for from a product - there are numerous ingredients to suit individual hair types. For instance, shampoo for oily hair and scalp would primarily contain sebum-controlling ingredients such as tea tree, mint and so on to maintain fresh, healthy scalp and hair throughout the day.
On the other hand, shampoo formulated for those with dry, frizzy, brittle hair and dry scalp would contain natural emollients such as shea butter, quinoa protein, coconut milk, argan oil and other deeply moisturising ingredients that will deliver deep, long-lasting moisture to each hair strand. Whereas those with chemically treated hair such as permed ad coloured hair have special types of shampoos that work by enhancing and retaining your curls and hair colour for a longer period of time. It is important to be able to correctly identify your hair type to select the best shampoo online.
What about Korean conditioner?
Korean conditioner refers to a moisturising hair care product that is used to improve the texture of your hair, restore moisture levels, and make it appear softer and shiny after washing. Finding the right Korean hair conditioner will help to reduce friction between your hair strands to make them easier to brush, detangle and style. Typically, Korean conditioner has slippery, creamy textures that apply smoothly to your hair.
Like shampoos and any other hair treatment products, it is important to identify your hair type before selecting the best conditioner for your hair type. Conditioners designed for oily hair tend to be clarifying and refreshing in nature with less emollients those designed for dry hair types. For those with dry, brittle hair, the conditioner suited for that particular hair type would contain a higher concentration of natural oils and emollients to replenish moisture levels and keep it smooth, flowing and luscious!
How to use Korean shampoo & conditioner
Generally, shampoos are used as the first step of hair washing. To use Korean shampoo, start by rinsing your hair until it is wet. Depending on your hair length, dispense an adequate amount of shampoo and lather evenly over your entire head of hair and scalp. A good measure would be the size of a coin, but feel free to add more if you have longer, thicker hair. Gently massage your scalp using your fingertips and rinse the shampoo away before continuing with your conditioner.
To use a Korean conditioner, dispense an adequate amount and apply it onto your hair strands. It is recommended to avoid applying conditioner onto your scalp especially if you have oily hair because it can make your hair appear greasy or ‘flat’. After applying conditioner onto your hair strands, leave it on for at least a couple of minutes before rinsing it away, as this will allow the nutrients to be fully absorbed into your hair strands to leave it silky smooth and soft to the touch. After rinsing your conditioner, you can choose to apply hair essence to give your hair added nutrients which will help it grow healthier and stronger.
In addition to using your choice of best shampoo online and best conditioner, adding other hair care products such as Hair treatment like leave on hair mask packs delivers deep conditioning and moisture, which can be left on your hair for longer durations than your regular conditioner.
Are Korean hair products better?
Similarly to Korean skincare products, Korean hair products are known to provide treatments to concerns, rather than adding products to weigh down the hair. Korean shampoo and conditioner is known to provide formulas to treat problems and leave the hair thick, healthy and luscious.
