Choosing the Right Shampoo
Walgreens offers many options in shampoo for every hair type including, fine hair, thick and coarse hair. Fine hair is made up of very small, thin strands that often look limp and lifeless on their own. Volumizing shampoos help to add bounce to fine tresses to make them look thicker and fuller. These products work by depositing small amounts of ingredients onto the hair strands, making each one appear slightly thicker for an all-over boost in volume. Sometimes, volumizing shampoos are referred to as thickening shampoos because they give the illusion of having thicker hair.
If your hair begins to look dirty soon after you wash it, your hair is likely prone to oiliness. Everyone's scalps produce natural oils to keep the hair soft and lubricated, but some people simply produce more oil than is necessary. Clarifying shampoos feature ingredients that dissolve excess oil from the scalp and the hair and can leave it much cleaner. Sometimes, hair care products can build up on the tresses and weigh them down. If your hair is plagued by styling residue, periodically using a clarifying shampoo can help to remove the build-up and help your hair look its best.
Just as some people are prone to having oily hair, others have naturally drier tresses due to a shortage of scalp oils. The hair can also become dry due to chemical treatments like hair dye, exposure to the sun or damage caused by the blow dryer and other styling tools that use heat. Moisturizing shampoos are made to replenish moisture levels in dry hair. They contain ingredients that add hydration to the strands with oils and butters or that pull moisture in from the air to add hydration to the strands.
Frizz happens when the hair absorbs moisture from humid air, causing it to swell and take on a twisted or kinky shape. Smoothing shampoos seal the hair strands, making it more difficult for them to absorb moisture. As a result, less frizz is able to form, and the hair appears smoother and sleeker. Because dry hair is more susceptible to frizz, many smoothing shampoos also contain moisturizers.
Some shampoos are made specifically for individuals with hair care and scalp problems. Dandruff shampoos contain ingredients that help to fight flakes that form due to dryness and yeast on the scalp. Hair loss shampoos provide essential nutrients to stimulate the hair follicles and encourage growth. Shampoos for irritated and sensitive scalps contain gentle ingredients that help to calm skin that is itchy, red and otherwise showing signs of stress.
There is a variety of specialty shampoos available at Walgreens made for specific hair types. Shampoo plus conditioner products are perfect for people who have busy schedules and need to simplify their hair care routines. Color safe shampoos are made to preserve chemically-treated hair color to help results last longer. You can also find shampoos for curly hair, straight hair and other hair types. BACK TO TOP ›
