Why do quality shampoo's & conditioner's matter?

Okay I need to admit that I frequently forget to educate you guys while I'm in the groove at the salon. There are a lot of things to focus on and I end up spacing out when it comes educating you on what products you should be using at home. Sometimes the reason why I find myself not doing it enough is simply because I'm afraid of repeating myself, or the assumption that you already know, and worst of all; I'm afraid I'm boring you to death. Well, I'm putting that silliness aside because I realize that you really do want and need me to tell you more. I decided that it would be best that I document this information in my blog so that they will always be handy in case you ever need the information. :)

For some of you, you already know exactly why a quality shampoo and conditioner matters. For others it may seem like soap is soap so why pay more? I completely understand this and in the past I, myself used to not put it high on my priority list either (trust me, my hair suffered for it). The easiest way to think of it is; Would you wash your cashmere sweater (or your nicest outfit) with dish soap? No freaking way! Well, why would you treat your hair with the same attitude that you do with your old t-shirts? It's not just the hair itself that needs the quality ingredients, your scalp really needs the love most of all. If your scalp isn't in tip top shape, chances are that your gorgeous locks will suffer the consequences if it goes untreated.

Scalp issues entail: flakiness, dandruff, itchiness, redness, soreness, scabs, clogged pores, random bald spots, scalp being too dry, or too oily. This is why we should take great care in what we're using and realize that one size does NOT fit all. I will break down a short guide on how to find the best shampoo and conditioner for yourself and where you can purchase them. Also, the suggestions I make below cover both men and women.

*Note to clients* I can order practically any product line available, so please don't hesitate to ask me to order something for you. I'd be more than happy to do so! Also if you still aren't sure what you need, please mention it at your next appointment with me or contact me by email or text. ( / (919) 334-8454 )

***I tried cataloging each product with a direct link to where you can buy it and my website/blog gave me a ton of errors. Please copy the product name you think is for you, click on the tab Product Recommendations - Shop with me and paste it into the search bar on Loxa Beauty's website.***

For dry scalps &/or dry locks: Moisture, moisture, moisture. That hair is very thirsty so your shampoo should be as moisturizing as your conditioner is. Which I have noticed that most people don't look into using deeper conditioners or masques and they are super important for anyone with dry scalp or dry hair. The deep conditioners and masques are more heavily concentrated and are usually (but not always!) sold in tubs. The bigger the tub the longer it will last you. *Tip*: Always make sure that lid is screwed back on correctly as to not let any air get into the conditioner or it will lose it's potency and will dry up.
