Types Of Shampoo For Black Hair

The main purpose of using shampoo is to get your hair clean by washing away the dirt, oils and scalp flakes that build up over time.

Shampoo Types

For black hair, just getting it clean is simply not enough. Our highly textured hair types are prone to dryness, so the shampoo it needs has to clean and moisturize at the same time.

That means staying far away from shampoos that strip moisture from the hair and staying with formulations that give your strands a much needed hydration boost!

The best types of shampoo for black hair are moisturizing and conditioning. They pre-treat your hair even before you reach the conditioning stage of your hair washing process.

Shampoo Bottle Wording To Look For

These shampoos generally have a creamy look vs. the clear look that lost of non-moisturizing shampoos have.
