It is not uncommon for shampoo manufacturers to make high claims of reducing hair loss. How believable are they actually? According to independent scientific researches, no shampoo can treat the basic cause of your hair loss—so they should not claim their shampoo as hair loss treatment. Are they totally ineffective? Not actually! Using a good shampoo according to your hair type may help you to control hair loss. Additionally, some scientifically proven solutions can be used as a shampoo to actually treat hair loss. Read the following paragraphs to have a better understanding.
How a Shampoo Can Help to Control Hair Loss?
Shampoo provides us a convenient way to clean our hair. A shampoo cleans sebum, dirt, and pollution from our hair. This cleaning certainly has a positive effect. Additionally, shampoo makes our hair more manageable; this causes less breakage and helps us control hair fall.
Most shampoos contain conditioning agents. Conditioners moisturize and strengthen our hair. All these points give us a helping hand to control our hair loss, though, they cannot be termed as hair loss solutions.
Picking the Right Shampoo for Hair Loss
To have the full benefit of shampoo, you should pick a shampoo according to your hair type. One indication of the right shampoo is the feel of it. If your hair feels great after shampoo, it is probably the right one. However, knowing your hair type and picking a shampoo according to this will certainly have some added advantages. Your hair can be one of the following types, or somewhere in-between.
- It is neither dry nor greasy
- It is not color treated, permed, or straightened
- It is usually easy to style without using lot of products

Picking the right shampoo and conditioner according to your hair type is the best to control hair loss.
