Find the Right For­mu­las

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR LOOK -

Star­ing at the rows of sham­poos and con­di­tion­ers in the hair­care aisle can make you feel like the Bach­e­lorette. How do you choose the one? ‘Vo­lu­mis­ing for­mu­las are good for fine hair and mois­tur­is­ing for­mu­las are ideal on dry hair, and for dyed hair, pick a colour­pro­tect­ing sham­poo and con­di­tioner,’ says Garnier celebrity stylist Tommy Buck­ett. (We like L’Oréal El­vive Colour Pro­tect Pro­tect­ing Sham­poo, R74,95.) But if you have more than one is­sue you want to ad­dress, go with a sul­phate-free for­mula. ‘It’s gen­tle on all hair types,’ he says. ‘If your ends tend to break or if your hair is bleached, you need a pro­tein-in­fused strength­en­ing sham­poo.’ Switch be­tween that and a mois­tur­is­ing sham­poo with­out pro­tein. ‘Too much pro­tein can make hair brit­tle, so don’t use one ev­ery time you wash,’ Buck­ett ex­plains.
