Do you always use matchy-matchy shampoos and conditioners when taming your mane? Does the thought of joining a different shampoo with your usual conditioner in holy matrimony send your perfectionist alter ego into a frenzy? Us too, huns. And while it’s super great to use matching hair products, it turns out that mixing them up can actually benefit your hair. Here’s how to make the perfect cocktail of hair prods for your hair type…
Oily scalp with dry ends
If your hair gets greasy at the roots while your ends are dryer than the Sahara desert, a combination of products might be just the ticket. Use a deep-clean shampoo, such as the Roots Double Effect Extreme Clean, to get rid of the grease. If you want to take it to the next level, leave it in for two minutes or so before rinsing out. Then, starting from halfway down your head, rub in a nourishing conditioner like OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk. This will hydrate ends without adding any extra oil to the roots.
Fine, coloured hair
Colouring your mop can really drain the moisture from it. Add fine hair to the equation and your barnet may appear greasy, too. Apply a gentle shampoo that’s designed especially for colour treated hair. The Schwarzkopf Color Expert Shampoo works to repair any damage and protect locks from future breakage. A heavy conditioner will weigh your hair down, so rub in a small amount of light conditioner to the ends and wash out. Try Superdrug Extracts Coconut & Sweet Almond which will help restore moisture and shine.
Flat hair with frizzy ends
No-one needs flat AND frizz in their lives. Try applying Love Beauty And Planet Volume & Bounty Shampoo to your hair for a lil bounce. Then smooth down those ends with some HASK Keratin Protein Smoothing Conditioner. Designed to tame frizzy hair, this stuff will give your hair the makeover it needs.
