Clients often ask me, “Does my hair stop reacting well to the shampoo I’ve been using for a long time? Should I change to another brand?” The short answer is: No. The need to change shampoos is a myth.
Your shampoo will work the same – even if you’ve been using the same brand for a long time. However, there is one shampoo-switching caveat: Change your shampoo if your hair changes. For example, if you get a new chemical service, you will probably need to change your shampoo. As you age, your hair may require a new shampoo to address your changing body. As the seasons change from hot (hair becomes oilier) to cold (hair becomes drier), it may be time to adjust your shampoo.
When you notice changes in your hair, consult with your hair stylist to make sure the shampoo you’re using fits your hair’s current needs.
If you changed shampoo recently, what prompted you to make the change?
