Does your hair get oily quickly, literally within a day? Does it generally lack volume and bounce? Is everyday a shampoo day for you? Then there’s good news and there’s some bad news.

How To Know If You Have Curly Hair?

Frizzy hair might be an indication that your hair is secretly curly or wavy. And the strand test will give you your curly confirmation. Take a small section of your hair and dampen it just a little. Wrap it around your finger. If it forms a coil or spiral, then you most likely have curly hair. Although, if it remains relatively straighter, you have wavy hair. Another way to find out is to let your hair air dry post washing. If you notice S-shaped patterns, you’ve got wavy hair. If there are ringlets or coils towards the ends, you’ve got ‘em curls.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What ingredients should I look for when choosing a shampoo?

A. The answer depends on your hair type. For example, if you have dry hair, you need a shampoo which has nourishing oils in it. Those with curly hair need to steer clear from sulfates and parabens and people who have oily hair can pick a shampoo with clarifying ingredients like tea tree or aloe.

Q2. Can the same shampoo work differently on different hair types?

A. Yes! It’s essential to pick a shampoo that suits your hair type. A person who has dry hair will not benefit from a volumizing shampoo, whereas it can be a game-changer for those with fine hair type. Same is the case for people with curly, oily or dry hair.

Q3. What effects can the wrong shampoo have on my hair?

A. Not choosing the right shampoo can steal your hair’s luster, softness and its overall health. You might also experience dryness leading to frizz and flyaways. While choosing a shampoo, always keep your hair and scalp type in mind and select a shampoo that caters to it.
