Hydrating Shampoo as a healthy haircare practice

Did you know that your hair needs water just as much as your body does?

The human body has a high water content, roughly about 60%, and the average hair shaft is made up of at least 25% water. Statistics show that proper hydration is the best way to keep a healthy scalp and ensure even healthier hair growth.

Water hydrates our hair, for sure! But water alone won’t be enough. Some external factors like the weather and hair styling practices, can dry out and eventually damage our hair. So, what is the best way to support growth and prevent hair damage? A hydrating shampoo!

What is a hydrating shampoo?

It is a hair care product that cleanses both scalp and hair without removing natural oils and moisture. They do not have the same action as regular shampoos do, since they contain protective nutrients which maintain the natural moisture balance.

Why should you use a hydrating shampoo?

If you have a dry scalp and hair, then you need a hydrating shampoo to nourish and provide moisture to your hair. Regular shampoos may not work for every hair type, for instance dry or already damaged hair. Using regular clarifying shampoos on a dry scalp or hair can cause further damage.

Why are hydrating shampoos great for your hair?

  • They gently cleanse your hair by removing dirt, grease, and product build-up, while maintaining the protective barrier of the scalp.
  • They add natural bounce/volume to your hair and improve its natural appearance.
  • They revive and add moisture to damaged or dry scalp and hair.
  • They are formulated with organic materials, designed to combat dryness and add moisture to the scalp and hair shaft.

Are hydrating shampoos good for dry hair?

Hydrating shampoos are specifically formulated for dry hair. They are made to provide hydration and improve the general health of the hair.

Hydrating shampoos are not just great for dry hair, they serve as revitalizers because they help to repair dry and damaged hair.

How does it work?

Hydrating shampoos, like Damanci’s, are great for dry hair because they contain humectants, hygroscopic substances used to keep things moist. Key ingredients in hydrating shampoos help to draw and then lock water into the hair which increases the overall moisture levels.

Always invest in a hair product that caters directly to your hair’s needs. If you have dry hair, hydrating haircare products like shampoos and conditioners, should be top picks for you.

What is the best shampoo for dry damaged hair?

If you are already experiencing hair dryness, then you should always look for products that add moisture.

Shampoos are great for cleansing hair, but the one that cleanses and hydrates, is best for dry hair. Regardless the cause of dryness, eg. heat styling, color treatment or bad products, it is important to keep your hair healthy by using the right products. We recommend using Damanci Hydrating Shampoo, with built in keratin proteins and naturally sourced organic oils.
