TEXTURE TIP- OFF
WE BREAK DOWN THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TEXTURE SHAMPOOS COME IN AND WHAT THEY’RE GOOD FOR.
CREAM The most commonly used, usually its main ingredient is water. Should you go for pharmacy or salon brands? Most hair experts will tell you that either is fine so long as it’s suitable for your hair. GEL A slightly thicker consistency, gel shampoos are usually colourless and used for dry and sensitive scalp. It doesn’t contain glycol distearate (this gives cream shampoo its opaque look), an ingredient that skincare developer AnneMarie Gianni says isn’t necessary as this won’t affect its efficacy. DRY Usually in powder or spray form, massage all over to absorb excess oil and brush out to remove residue. No water is needed so it’s perfect when you don’t have time to shampoo or if you’re concerned about over-washing. It’s also great for keeping volume in fine hair.
