All about shampoo & conditioner
Shampoo No matter how little or how much hair you have, you need to take care of it. Even though your hair is dead, your scalp is alive and needs to be well. The hair that gives you a good or bad hair day is actually the hair shaft. The hair follicle is at the root of the shaft and the follicle is the living part of your hair. So, good scalp health is essential to healthy hair.
Keeping a healthy blood flow to the scalp stimulates hair growth. Keeping your hair (scalp) clean will increase the circulation which will increase the growth of thicker, healthier hair.
Grooming your hair with the right conditioner is very important. Conditioners moisturize, detangle, and reconstruct your hair.
Basically, when you wash your hair you are stripping away your natural oils (sebum). Not good. Well, if you didn't you would have dirty, greasy hair. Unfortunately, our natural oils like to attract natural dirt.
After shampooing, a good conditioner can restore the oil back to your hair. Humectants attract and hold moisture in your hair. Many conditioners also contain hydrolized keratin which is a protein that will penetrate your hair to strengthen it. Acidifiers in conditioners restore balance and give your hair elasticity and shine. They keep hair from being "weighed down".
I recommend Redken for Men there are different types of shampoo & conditioner in the range to suit your hair type.
