Men used to use universal shampoos, as there were simply no separate lines. Later, when they appeared, many people did not pay attention to them, and in general, the choice was not taken seriously, buying the first product on the counter. But it was scientifically proved long ago that hair and skin of men are different from women’s, sebaceous glands they have more active, dandruff occurs more often, and the risk of baldness the strong half is more exposed. That is why the right choice of shampoo is the key to a well-groomed and healthy appearance.
Today, the most famous cosmetic brands develop and produce a wide range of products for men that are aimed at solving specific problems. There are shampoos for dry and oily hair, there are from dandruff and against hair loss. On sale are therapeutic, restorative and preventive products for daily use and for application once a week, all-natural and with chemical additives. Separate products are available for men with gray hair, which take care of thin, weakened hair.
How to choose a shampoo for men
Most men’s sebaceous glands work more intensely than women’s, so it is wrong to wash your hair with the same shampoo in the family. The increased secretion of fat affects the condition of hair, besides the representatives of the stronger half of mankind they tend to be thicker, with a denser structure, and the acidity of the skin is increased at the level of pH 5,4. Shampoos for men are aimed at reducing sebum activity and intensive cleansing of the hair shafts.
For men, the requirements for the composition of shampoo differ from women’s needs. The remedy should not contain:
- sodium lauryl sulfate, which can deeply cleanse the hair, but aggressively on them;
- silicone, which further weighs down the already oily hair, although this component is present in most shampoos for men (and women).
It is recommended to choose the useful active ingredients together with a trichologist or dermatologist. On your own, you should pay attention to the presence of plant extracts, oils, proteins and fatty acids.
Although their set will vary depending on the purpose of shampoo. A statement like “shampoo is 80% herbal infusion” is a marketing ploy. Any shampoo is 80% purified water. In addition, to preserve the organic broth for 12-24 months (shelf life), the manufacturer will have to use preservatives in large quantities, which will reduce the usefulness of the product to a minimum. And there are many such tricks.
As with women, men’s hair type can be different, despite the condition of the sebaceous glands.
- For oily hair shampoo includes drying components;
- For normal – supporting ceramides, oils and extracts;
- For dry – moisturizing ingredients.
If you have dandruff, you need to choose shampoos for the appropriate purpose. They will help reduce the separation of skin cells and prevent possible alopecia. The composition of funds from dandruff must include zinc, ketoconazole, salicylic acid, plant extracts. If the cause of dandruff is fungus, it is important to treat it with special drugs that are prescribed by a doctor.
How to determine the type of hair on your own:
- Oily after washing quickly gets dirty and becomes greasy-shiny, dull, can leave a feeling of greasiness and dampness on the hands. I have to wash my head every day.
- Normal hair styles well, shimmers in the sun, and stays fresh for days after washing. You need to wash them 2-3 times a week.
- Dry hair is split, does not shine, when combing the comb can get stuck in the hair. They come to this state because of improper nutrition, poor care. Wash them a couple of times a week, it is desirable to use a nourishing conditioner or mask.
- Mixed type is characteristic of long hair, when sebum envelopes only the root zone, and the ends remain dry. To care for these strands you need a shampoo for mixed or normal hair, and for the ends – nourishing masks.
