Different Types of Shampoo

June 14, 2017

Have you ever found yourself wondering what all these different types of shampoos are and what they consist of? How do you know which shampoo is best for your curly, straight, dry, oily or shiny hair? Finding the perfect shampoo for your hair can seem daunting, which is why we are here to help you find the perfect shampoo that is best for you.

Tip: If you have hard water you may be using too much shampoo. Hard water creates build up and minerals in your hair, which causes you to use more shampoo. With a water softener, you will use less shampoo because the water helps cleanse and makes your hair soft and shiny. The water softener strips out all the hard water minerals that make your hair dry and dull.

Types of Shampoo

Volumizing Shampoo

This type of shampoo is geared toward people who have limp and lifeless hair. If you suffer from stress or poor nutrition, you may notice this affects your hair. Volumizing shampoo works to restore hair to be fuller, healthier and thicker, giving you the look you dreamed about.

Clarifying Shampoo

For those of you who have dull, heavy, greasy build-up, you may want to get a clarifying shampoo. This type of shampoo is not meant to use daily – but more for those dire emergencies to get a fresh and restored shine. If you have hard water, you may want to use a clarifying shampoo once a week to get out old build-up, especially if you are regularly in a chlorinated swimming pool.

Color-Treated Hair Shampoo

If you have ever had your hair colored or dyed, using a specialized color-treated hair shampoo is best to make sure your color looks the best and lasts. Using a normal shampoo won’t work as well for color-treated hair since it doesn’t have the right ph levels of 4.5-5.5, which is recommended in color-treated shampoos.

Dry Shampoo

For people who don’t have time to wet their hair, dry shampoo is a powdered substance that helps absorb oil in the hair.  People tend to use dry shampoo if they’re on the go and need a quick and easy way to make sure their hair looks healthy and manageable for a few hours.

Don’t forget – if you want to invest in your hair for the long run, investing in a San Antonio water softener will ensure your hair is soft, healthy and clean to give you that radiant look you’ve always wanted.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
