What is shampoo and conditioner?

A good hair day starts with a good shampoo and conditioner! This dynamic duo forms the basis of any hair care routine and gets your locks in fabulous condition before you even think about prepping and styling.

Shampoo is a hair care product made to cleanse your hair. It contains special ingredients, such as detergents and surfactants, which remove oil, dirt, sweat, product build-up and other pollutants from your hair and leave it squeaky clean.

Conditioners are made to restore softness and manageability to your hair. They're loaded with nourishing ingredients, such as oils, botanical extracts, and proteins, which help repair, detangle, moisturise, and protect your hair shafts from damage.

You can find shampoos and conditioners to target every hair type and tackle every hair concern, from dry and damaged to curly, straight, fine, frizzy, and thinning hair. Most people will use them as a 2-step process, starting with a shampoo to clean and following up with a conditioner to smooth and lock in the nutrients.

How do you use shampoo and conditioner?

To get started using shampoo and conditioner, you should understand the different types and their role in your hair care routine. Aside from the regular shampoo and conditioner you use in the shower, you can find dry shampoo for cleaning hair in between washes, leave-in conditioners for extra hydration and manageability, and sulphate-free shampoo and sulphate-free conditioner for gentle cleansing without stripping natural oils.

For extra care, use a moisturising shampoo and a hydrating conditioner that offer intense hydration, repair, and protection. A shampoo bar can be a convenient and eco-friendly alternative as well. These hair care products can help with various hair concerns, from reducing split ends and hair loss to controlling oily hair and frizzy hair.

Here's a quick guide on how to use each product:

  1. Shampoo: Shampoo is typically the first step in any hair care routine. Squeeze a small amount of product into your palm and apply it to your hair. Massage all over to create a rich lather, paying special attention to the scalp. Rinse thoroughly.
  2. Conditioner: Next, squeeze a small amount of conditioner onto your palm and massage it into the lengths of your hair, avoiding the scalp. Leave it to work its magic for about 3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
  3. Dry shampoo: To extend the amount of time between using shampoo, you can use a dry shampoo. These products help soak up oil and odours, leaving hair scented and feeling fresh for longer. Most dry shampoos will be in a spray form. Shake the can well, hold it 15-20cm away from your head and spray hair and scalp in sections until lightly coated. Massage it in and style as usual.
  4. Leave-in conditioner: A leave-in conditioner is great for dry, damaged and normal hair. To use a spray product, simply wash your hair and towel-dry it until damp. Mist the conditioner over your hair, from mid-length to ends. You can use a comb to distribute it evenly and detangle knots before using a blow dryer. Don't rinse it out! For the best results, always check your product for specific instructions.

Which shampoo and conditioner is best for dry hair?

The best shampoo and conditioner for dry hair is one that is rich with nourishing oils, butters, and other conditioning agents that can restore moisture to your hair.

Moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner are ideal for dry and damaged hair as they're infused with argan oil, a powerful botanical oil that's loaded with antioxidants and fatty acids for hydrating, repairing, and protecting fragile hair. Choose from Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner, Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner, or Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. For extreme dryness, try adding the Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask to your routine. It's formulated with argan oil and shea butter to strengthen brittle hair and enhance elasticity. Massage all over after shampooing, leave 5-7 minutes, then rinse off and follow up with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Conditioner.

Curly-haired girls and guys can benefit from shampoo and conditioner that combats dryness, as curly hair is prone to frizziness if not properly cared for. One of the best shampoos and conditioners for curly hair is Redken All Soft Mega Curl Shampoo. This sulphate-free shampoo is formulated with exclusive Nourish Complex and aloe vera to clean and hydrate curly hair and enhance natural curl pattern and bounce.

Do you need both shampoo and conditioner?

Generally, yes. Every hair type will need both shampoo and conditioner to maintain long-term hair health. This is because shampoo cleanses the hair by opening the hair cuticles, which can sometimes leave it feeling dry and frazzled. Following it up with a conditioner is needed to close the cuticles and seal in all of the nutrients and moisture.
