15 Best Hair Shampoo in Pakistan

Washing hair is an important part of hygiene. Nobody likes flakes on their heads dusting their shoulders. It gets even worse in winters and can cause embarrassment as some people consider it a result of poor hygiene. Dandruff is basically scalp flaking due to inflammation which is caused due to our skin reacting to yeast on the scalp. Everyone’s scalp has yeast but not everyone reacts to it which results in itching, inflammation and flaky skin. The best solution to deal with dandruff is using an anti-dandruff shampoo and the right washing techniques. There are several shampoos on the market which makes it a bit challenging to pick the right one. In this article, I will guide you about the best shampoos in Pakistan, how to pick the right shampoo for yourself, what are the key ingredients you need to look out for and from where to pick your shampoo to ensure it is genuine.

How to Pick the Best Shampoo?

Look Out for the Active Ingredients:

The ingredients that can work to reduce dandruff are selenium sulfide, pyrithione zinc, coal tar, ketoconazole and salicylic acid. However, you might have to adopt a try and fail technique before you find one. So keep yourself open to experiment.

Consider Your Hair Type:

Identify if your hair needs extra moisture especially for the dry, kinky, curly, coiled or coarse hair types. In that case, look for the ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil, shea butter, etc that will hydrate your scalp and strands. Some other things to consider to by shampoo for your hair type are:

Thick Hair:

Pick moisturizing or hydrating shampoos as they would add shine, moisture and smoothness to the thick hair that lacks moisture.

Wavy Hair:

Balancing shampoos are generally a great option. They are not too moisturizing but still they will not dry out your hair.

Curly Hair:

Pick very moisturizing shampoos that agents that reduce frizz without weighing your curls down.

Fine Hair:

Volumizing shampoos would work best for boosting your strands without weighing them down.

Straight Hair:

Smoothing shampoos are usually rich in extra moistureizing and smoothing ingredients that seal the cuticle and help in making straight and smooth styles.

Damaged/ Brittle/ Colored Hair:

Pick fortifying or strengthening shampoos are generally good for over-processed, highlighted, brittle, weakened or damaged hair because these shampoos contain extra protein which improves hair’s condition.

Consider Your Scalp Type

While considering your hair type is important while picking your shampoo, it’s equally important to consider your scalp. Different shampoos have different ingredients and cleaning capabilities so it is important to identify your scalp type as well. If the roots of your hair tend to be more oily, it means you need a less moisturizing and deeper cleansing shampoo. On the other hand, for a more tight and dryer scalp, you need something that is more moisturizing. 

For Oily Scalp:

The key signs that you have an oily scalp are that it may appear shinier and dandruff flakes may look clumped together. For oily scalp, you need to keep the following things in your mind when buying a shampoo.

  • Don’t use shampoos that hydrate, moisturize, or that are good for curly hair as they add more moisture to your hair.
  • Look for the words ‘volumizing”, “strengthening” or “balancing” on the labels as they are non-moisturizing shampoos and they effectively remove excess oil.
  • A clarifying shampoo is a good option but overusing it can dry out your scalp.
  • Work the shampoo into your scalp for a little longer to break up oil and rinse your scalp well.

For Dry Scalps

If you have an itchy scalp with or without flakes, it is a sign that you have a dry scalp. There are a few things to keep in mind while picking a shampoo for a dry scalp such as:

  • Don’t use fortifying, strengthening and volumizing shampoos as they can remove the necessary moisture from your scalp.
  • Look for shampoos that are hydrating, moisturizing, smoothing or for curly hair. 
  • Don’t use shampoos that have sulfates because it is very drying for your hair and scalp.
  • Shampoo your hair properly for the best results.

Adopt Good Washing Technique:

To remove dandruff effectively, rub your scalp with your fingertips while applying an anti dandruff shampoo. Also, start using an anti-dandruff conditioner that has anti dandruff ingredients which will continue fighting even after you rinse.

Consider How Often You Wash Your Hair:

Start by washing your hair at least twice a week and notice how your hair and scalp look and feel. If you don’t see any results, start washing up to three to four times a week. It’s quite possible that you will get the best results by washing your hair daily.
