3 Tips for Choosing the Right Hair Care Products, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

Walking the aisles of a beauty store to find the perfect shampoo and conditioner can be intimidating. There are so many hair care products on the market, it’s hard to know which ones are right for you. Here, American Hair International Salon in Lexington, KY, offers three tips for choosing new products. These experienced hairstylists are familiar with every color and texture, so you can trust their advice.

Consider Your Hair Thickness

People with thick, luxurious locks have a lot of hair to tame, so they need a product that offers penetrating moisture without excess oils that can make strands feel greasy. If you have thin hair, choose lightweight products like serums and creams that won’t weigh you down. While pomades and gels give curls shine and bounce, they can make fine, straight hair look limp.

Factor in the Moisture Level

If you’re active and sweat a lot, this may happen after just a few hours. Consider using dry shampoo between washes to reduce the greasiness and separate your strands. Avoid thick gels and conditioners, as these hair care products can make oiliness worse if they’re used too often.

Those with dry hair can shampoo every few days with little maintenance in between. Add some serum to reduce frizz and increase shine. Creamy products nourish hair by adding moisture, so look for conditioners and shampoos that offer hydration. 

Keep Texture in Mind

Is your hair straight, curly, or wavy? When shopping for products, keep both your natural texture and styling habits in mind. If you have curls, a cleansing conditioner will remove dirt and smooth frizz. People with thin or fragile locks should use heat protectants like argan oil when styling to prevent damage and create the appearance of thickness. If you have natural waves, you’re in luck—you can play up curls with some pomade and a curling iron or use a straightener and serum to create a sleek look.

Now that you know which hair care products are right for you, it’s time to get a stylish new cut. To get the latest style, visit the team at American Hair International Salon. Call (859)223-4400 or visit their website to learn about their favorite haircuts and coloring and styling services.
