Hair is the greatest asset of many women. We try to take care of them and care for them properly, so that they always look healthy and attractive. When buying cosmetics, we wonder which of them will be good for our hair. Does it make sense to use two-in-one products? You will find out in this article!
Owners of naturally thick hair usually don’t have to go as deep into their hair care as owners of thin hair. This doesn’t mean, of course, that they don’t have to take care of them at all, but they can simply skip a few steps of care without worrying that it will significantly affect the condition of their hair. The thin ones are much more demanding. In their case, more attention should be paid to the choice of cosmetics. Let’s remind ourselves of the most important elements in hair care.
Cleansing the hair, that is, washing with shampoo or other cleanser. This is an indispensable part of hair care as well as all our personal hygiene. There are two types of shampoos: those with strong detergents and those with mild ones. Cleansing with a strong shampoo should be done once every 4-5 washes. The remaining washes should be done with a mild product.
Conditioning is otherwise known as using a conditioner or hair mask after washing. This is also a very important element. There are protein, emollient and humectant conditioners. Use them interchangeably depending on what type of hair you have and what it needs at the time.
Not many people remember this, but the scalp also needs scrubbing. Perform it once a week. There are two basic types of scalp scrubs available in drugstores: trichological (enzymatic) and mechanical (with particles). The former are much easier to use.
After blow-drying, an oil or serum should be applied to the hair to protect the ends. This is the part of the hair that has been with us the longest and needs the most care, as it is most exposed to the elements. Never forget this step.
The answer to this question will not be clear-cut. Whether it is worth investing in two-in-one cosmetics depends on what kind of cosmetics they are. The individual needs of your hair and scalp are also important. If you are considering buying a conditioner combined with a shampoo – it is not worth it. This is the kind of cosmetics that should not be combined with each other under any circumstances. Shampoo is supposed to cleanse the scalp, and it is to its needs that it should be chosen. Conditioner, on the other hand, is supposed to nurture the hair. Using shampoo and conditioner in one does not make sense. Another thing is to combine several types of conditioner into one. A humectant-emollient conditioner, for example, is an excellent choice. There are also protein-emollient-humectant masks.
In this case, buying such a cosmetic will be a good idea.
