🧴🚿 Your perfect shampoo routine is just a click away

🧴🚿 Your perfect shampoo routine is just a click away

Our stylists at Xylem Salon often get asked about shampoos and cleansing, so today let’s take a deep dive into the suds…

Shampoo & Natural oils

Shampooing removes excess buildup, allowing your scalp to maintain a healthy oil balance while your sebaceous glands continuously produce oils that coat your hair

If you use the right products, daily washing can nourish your hair, irrespective of your washing frequency.

Listen to your hair’s needs, choose the right shampoo and wash away. Whether it’s every day or every few days, it’s your call.

Lather, rinse… repeat

We’ve all heard the classic ‘lather, rinse, repeat’ mantra. If you’re dealing with product build-up or if your scalp is on the oily side, a second lather may be needed. But for many a single, thorough wash is enough. Save some water, save your time.

And talking of lather…

The lather lowdown

Don’t worry about creating lots of suds and bubbles for effective cleansing. In fact, if you’re using a sulphate-free shampoo it won’t foam up like traditional shampoos, but it is still high on performance.

Remember, it’s the rinsing that sweeps away the dirt, not the lather.

Does a shampoo become less effective?

If you feel your shampoo is less effective, it’s likely not the shampoo but a change in your hair’s condition. Have a chat with our stylists who can examine your hair’s condition and recommend the right product for its needs.

That said…

Seasonal swaps? Absolutely!

Just as we adapt our skincare with the changing seasons, our hair care routine should follow suit.

In the dryer, colder months, consider switching to a more nourishing shampoo, such as Aveda’s Nutriplenish, to combat the low humidity and harsh environment.

Shampooing and hair loss

Losing a few strands in the shower? We lose up to 100 hairs a day. It’s natural to lose some hair during washing, which doesn’t cause hair loss but removes hairs that are already loose and ready to shed.

Be gentle

Did you know hair is remarkably delicate when wet? Treat it carefully.

There is no need for a vigorous lather. Instead, use gentle, circular motions on the scalp to invigorate and cleanse. It’s not just good for your hair – it’s a mini spa-moment for you too.

And dab, don’t rub, with your towel when you have finished.

Finding your perfect match

As you can see, choosing the right shampoo for your hair type is crucial. It’s not just about cleansing, it’s about nurturing your hair’s needs. Whether your locks are curly, straight, color treated or dry, there’s a shampoo soulmate waiting for you. Ask our Xylem stylists for their expert advice at your next appointment – we love to help!
