Hair Care Tips for Every Hair Type: Expert Advice

By Dean Laming on February 28th, 2024

Clients often feel confused navigating the overwhelming hair care aisle trying to combat concerns like dryness, damage and thinning for their specific texture. As trusted stylists who intimately understand varied locks, hairdressers bear valuable opportunities to guide customers towards solutions restoring health and shine after services.


Here are product recommendations and regimens advised to clients struggling with their hair beyond the salon chair.


Curly Hair Care Essentials

Beautiful curls thrive with moisture and minimal disruption to the delicate wave pattern.

Use cleansing conditioners

These gentle, low-lather formulas cleanse hair without stripping beneficial oils that keep strands supple, preventing parched frizz.

Deep condition religiously

Argan oil or shea butter-enriched masks satisfyingly penetrate coarse strands, improving elasticity and minimising knots that lead to breakage when detangling.

Let curls set naturally

Avoid heat tools, tight elastics or rough handling that stretches delicate ringlets out of shape permanently. Let strands dry fully before scrunching to encourage bouncy structure.


Colour-Treated Hair Care Tips

Frequent chemical processing and heat styling dehydrate coloured strands, causing dullness and damage. Address these concerns by:

Using sulphate-free shampoos

Harsh sulphates strip colour rapidly. Gentler formulas retain vivid tone longer while nourishing sufficiently.

Weekly reparative masks

Salon-grade hair masks seal split ends and rebuild bonds within weakened hair. This prolongs colour longevity and shine too.

Limiting heat tools

Allow hair to air dry often to prevent excessive dryness. When heat-styling, always apply protective serums beforehand to shield strands.


Thinning Hair Care Recommendations

Genetics, hormones and stress contribute to wispy thinning prone to tangling. Alleviate problems by:

Volumising shampoos

Look for body-boosting shampoos containing proteins that thicken wispy strands over time for the appearance of fuller hair.

Nightly scalp massages

Gently rubbing nutrient oils like rosemary, eucalyptus or tea tree improves circulation around follicles, stimulating growth. Their antimicrobial properties also balance scalps.

Hiding visible scalp patches

Use soft-hold hairstyles like textured waves that provide coverage across bald spots. Similarly, switch parts often so areas grow evenly. Treat thinning proactively before excessive loss.

Mature Hair Care Suggestions

Natural ageing and shifting hormones logically impact hair quality over 50. Adjust routines suitably:

Weekly deep conditioning

Dry, thinning mature hair desperately requires rich emollient treatments drenching strands in moisture to protect and reinforce them.

Anti-breakage accessories

Replace regular brush bristles with soft, rounded tips protecting fragile grey hair. At night, avoid constricting elastics, opting instead for loose braids or buff snoods minimising friction and breakage.

Daily scalp massages

Gentle scalp stimulation increases blood flow to follicles for fuller strands. Mix a few drops of rosemary or peppermint oil into nutrient-rich oils to boost efficacy.


Of course, expert in-salon conditioning and protective styling help further across all hair types.
