How to Choose a Shampoo Bar in the Philippines – Buying Guide

Depending on what you’re looking for in a shampoo you’ll need to choose a type and formulation that’s right for your hair.

Choose Type of Shampoo Bar Based on How its Made

Choose Type of Shampoo Bar Based on How its Made
Shampoo bars are categorized into three types: cold-pressed, glycerin-based, and solid surfactant shampoo bars.
Cold-pressed shampoo bars are usually home-made, all-natural, and chock-full of essential oils, which help nourish and condition your hair and scalp. Glycerin-based shampoo bars are more gentle and pH balanced, but since they don’t lather well, so they’re not as clarifying. Both cold-pressed and glycerin-based shampoo bars are usually free of SLS, a known irritant.
Solid surfactant shampoo bars lather the best, so they can be a bit too clarifying for some people. They’re also more pH balanced, but they do contain sulfates. A well-known example of this is Lush’s shampoo bars.

Choose a Shampoo Bar Formulation Based on Your Hair Concerns

Our hair, just like our skin, is unique to everyone; therefore, choosing the right shampoo bar with the right formula and ingredients is important.

Oily Hair and Scalp – Look for Volumizing and Balancing Ingredients

Oily Hair and Scalp – Look for Volumizing and Balancing Ingredients
If you have an oily scalp, it’s important not to go for ultra-moisturizing shampoos are this might aggravate its condition. Of course, it’s also bad to use overly clarifying shampoo as it might dry out your scalp, which in turn may cause an overproduction of sebum.
If the label doesn’t already indicate a shampoo is formulated for oily hair, then look for ingredients like tea tree oil, juniper berry oil, rose geranium. Tea tree oil helps remove excess oil, juniper berry oil clarifies a congested scalp, and rose geranium balances sebum production.

Dry Hair and Scalp – Look for Moisturizing and Nourishing Ingredients

Dry Hair and Scalp – Look for Moisturizing and Nourishing Ingredients
This goes without saying but if you have dry, frizzy hair, then you’ll need to give your hair a boost of moisture. Avoid over-clarifying and volumizing shampoos because these will dry out your hair and scalp even more. Some of the ingredients to look out for are aloe vera, rosemary oil, rosehip oil, and honey.
Aloe vera contains enzymes that help repair dead skin cells on the scalp. Rosemary oil can help improve a dry and itchy scalp while promoting microcirculation of the scalp for healthy hair growth. Rosehip oil is a lightweight oil that can attract and seal moisture into the hair, making it perfect for dry, flaky scalps. Honey brings back life to dull, dry hair by giving it a lustrous shine.

Split Ends, Breakage, Hair Fall – Look for Strengthening and Hydrating Ingredients

Split Ends, Breakage, Hair Fall – Look for Strengthening and Hydrating Ingredients
Dealing with damaged hair can be difficult, but there are ways to help improve its condition. One way is to choose the right shampoo with the right ingredients to help your hair grow healthy. We recommend looking for ingredients like calendula extract, oatmeal, vitamin C, and avocado oil.
Calendula extract helps promote the growth of stronger hair by promoting collagen production and circulation in the scalp. Oatmeal increases the hair’s elasticity to prevent further breakage or damage.
Ingredients like amla oil, lemon, and calamansi, which are rich in vitamin C, help strengthen hair to fight against breakage and boost collagen production. Avocado oil restores your hairs luster and hydrates dry and damaged ends.

Dandruff – Look for Detoxifying and Deep Cleansing Ingredients

Dandruff – Look for Detoxifying and Deep Cleansing Ingredients
Depending on the root cause of your dandruff, the best ingredients for you will differ.
Tea tree oil has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which makes it suitable for treating dandruff caused by Malassezia. Apple cider vinegar can remove scaly build-up and clarify the hair and scalp without being too harsh. It also has a low pH which creates an acidic environment that helps eliminate seborrheic dermatitis causing fungus.
Activated charcoal gives your scalp a much-needed detox by sucking out dead cells, stale oils, and toxins. Another commonly used natural ingredient is rosemary oil. It contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that restore balance to your scalp.

How to Use a Shampoo Bar

How to Use a Shampoo Bar
Start by thoroughly wetting your hair, then rub the shampoo bar in between your hands or directly onto your hair to create a lather. Massage the product into your hair and scalp and add more water until you get a good lather.
Start from the top to the bottom and refrain from bunching up your hair to prevent tangles. Once you’ve successfully gotten the product all over your hair and scalp, rinse it thoroughly until you get rid of all the residue.
Once you’re done, make sure to keep it away from water and use a soap dish with a drain. Never leave it inside a shampoo bar tin for long periods of time.

Summary

Transitioning from regular shampoos to shampoo bars might be quite a challenge, but with the right shampoo bar, we’re sure to have no regrets. Once you understand what your hair needs and what ingredients to look out for, finding the perfect shampoo bar is just a click away.
