When you choose a shampoo, do you consider your friends’ recommendations or whether you find the bottle attractive? Well, it’s very important to read the labels! Choosing the right product for your specific needs can entail a major difference for the health of your hair and scalp. Like I always say: “Beautiful hair begins with a healthy scalp.” To know which is the best shampoo to resolve all of your concerns, you must understand the characteristics of your hair and there are some key points you should be familiar with.
The main function of shampoo is to remove all accumulated impurities, particles of contamination, oil, dandruff, styling product residues, etc. Likewise, it helps to prepare your mane for any subsequent treatment. It can even stimulate your scalp’s circulation and oxygenation if you apply it with a massage.
Common problems, like itchiness of the scalp, seborrheic dermatitis, dandruff and oily hair, are difficult to counteract and can worsen if you don’t use the appropriate products. For this very reason, Miriam Quevedo goes a step beyond: our shampoos also serve the purpose of addressing the specific concerns of both our hair and scalp.
The best shampoo for itchiness of the scalp
If your scalp feels itchy, is irritated, flaky or even painful, it’s important to choose a shampoo that provides relief and comfort.
Hormonal changes, UV rays, the use of inadequate products, cold weather, abuse of dyes and blow dryers... can cause sensitivity and inflammaging of the scalp as well as dehydrate your hair.
Our Glacial White Caviar Hydra-Pure Shampoo is the best shampoo for itchy scalp. Containing White Caviar Extract, Encapsulated Swiss Glacier Water, Complex of Organic Edelweiss Flower, Rice & Cotton Extracts, and a Scalp Hydrating and Calming Complex with Xylitol and Lactitol, among other potent ingredients, it provides in-depth hydration and relief and counteracts dryness, flakiness and irritation.
Which is the best shampoo for oily hair
The most recommended shampoo for people with an oily scalp is our Extreme Caviar Purifying Charcoal Shampoo. Formulated with our Multi-Vitamin B Complex and 5 Trace Elements Protein Complex, this shampoo regulates the activity of the sebaceous glands and prevents the rebound effect.
Its gentle, purifying formula prevents flakiness and redness of the scalp and is nonirritating. It also helps to restore the hair’s natural, protective hydrolipidic barrier as a defense against environmental and chemical aggressors.
The best shampoo for dandruff
If you have dandruff, it’s important to choose a shampoo with antifungal and anti-inflammatory ingredients to treat this problem, like our Extreme Caviar Special Dandruff Shampoo. Specifically, at Miriam Quevedo we use a Molecular Anti-Dandruff Phytobioactive extracted using biotechnology. A natural ingredient rich in saponins and highly effective against dandruff, it also relieves and comforts an itchy scalp. Likewise, we use Brewer’s Yeast because it strengthens the hair’s structure, counteracts seborrhea, stimulates healthy hair growth and prevents the formation of dandruff.
Its gentle yet effective formula also includes Caviar, Alpha Hydroxy Acids... to protect the hair and scalp and restore hydration, softness and elasticity.
The best option is a natural shampoo
All of our shampoos are free of toxic ingredients: SLES sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, phthalates, paraffin or petrolatum.
Do you know why you should avoid shampoos with SLES sulfates? These are very aggressive, can irritate and dehydrate your scalp and are harmful for the environment. This is why our treasures are plant-derived and sustainable, using natural surfactants instead of sulfates and are safe and environmentally friendly.
As well, it’s important to remember that to effectively address all of the aforementioned concerns, we must combine the shampoo with other specific haircare products, like masks, mists or shock treatments for the scalp.
