If you look for hair care products online or stroll through the hair care section of any supermarket, you would be bombarded with an array of products. There are so many products that promise good hair! You are bound to be confused about what to buy and what to avoid. Here we look at some of the best products for curly hair and straight hair to guide your hair care routine.
Hair Oil: Hair oil is synonymous to hair care in most Indian households. A good champi is considered to be an elixir for hair by our mothers and grandmothers. Whatever might be your hair issue, be it dry and damaged hair, hair loss, or even premature greying, it is believed that there is nothing a regular massage with a good hair oil cannot fix. Apart from the most commonly used coconut oil, there are several types of hair oils that not only strengthens hair but also boosts hair growth. Castor oil, bhringraj oil, onion oil, argan oil, and almond oil are considered as some of the best natural hair care products for healthy hair.
Shampoo: Shampoo is a hair care product that helps to keep your hair and scalp clean. While sebum is necessary for hair health and shine, sebum buildup can make your hair too oily and can cause issues like dandruff. Moreover, external factors like dirt and pollution can make your hair dirty. Hence, regular shampooing becomes crucial. It is important to choose a shampoo as per your hair type. Brands like L’Oreal and Revlon also offer shampoos for specific hair conditions like hair fall, damaged hair, etc. You would also find several shampoos that contain natural ingredients like onion, apple cider vinegar, neem, lavender, gooseberry, etc.
Conditioner: A hair conditioner moisturizes your hair and adds a protective layer to the hair cuticles. Apart from this, conditioners also remove tangles easily, prevent split ends, and make the hair soft and smooth. A conditioner should be applied to the entire length of the hair after shampooing. To get the maximum benefit from the conditioner, it should be kept on the hair for 2-3 minutes before rinsing. Apart from regular conditioners, there are also deep conditioners or hair masks that should be used at least once a month to moisturize your hair deeply. You would find a range of L’Oreal, Biotique, and Revlon conditioners on Zivame hair care products’ stores.
Hair Serum: Hair serum is a hair care product that can help to lock some extra moisturizer on well shampooed and conditioned hair. Applying a small amount of serum on damp hair can help to tame frizz and at the same time add shine to your hair. Hair serums become your best friend in hot and humid climates. Moreover, it aids in nourishing dry hair and also in softening the strands. Biotique, Professional O3+, L’Oreal, and Biotique are some of the popular brands that offer the best hair serums for all hair types.
Hair Gel: for most people, hair gel is the last step of their hair care routine. Hair gels are commonly used to style hair. Be it curls, spikes, or waves, hair gel can help you to achieve the look you want. Moreover, using a hair gel would ensure that the look is maintained for several hours. Other than this, some gels (those made with organic ingredients) can help to provide your hair the necessary nutrients to make it healthy. Certain hair gels also make your hair look thicker and fuller.
Long or short, straight or curly, whatever be your hair type- the hair product that suits your hair best will keep it strong and healthy. Check out Zivame’s premium range of hair care products for women online and choose the one that will make your hair shine!
Generally, hair care products are safe to use. However, this would also depend on the type of hair product you use. If you are looking for a hair care product for daily use, it would be best to go for a product that has organic or natural ingredients. Hair care products developed for particular issues like dry hair and dandruff, which contain chemicals and parabens, should be used occasionally.
Curly hair is naturally dry and hence not all hair care products may be suitable for this type of hair. To ensure that the hair care products do not dry out your hair and scalp, it would be best to use hair care products that are free of silicones and parabens. Apart from shampoo and conditioner, some hair care products for curly hair include curling creams and gels to enhance the shape and texture of their curls.
While it is natural to feel overwhelmed by so many hair care products, it is important to have some essential products for a hair care routine. These include a nourishing hair oil and a good quality shampoo and conditioner. If you do not like the idea of using too many hair products on a daily basis, buy a hair gel, hair wax, or hair mousse only for special occasions. You can also buy a hair care kit that includes a hair oil, shampoo, conditioner, and serum as per your hair type.
