Non-silicone shampoos are popular for being gentle on the hair and scalp. Many people are actively using non-silicone shampoos to reduce hair loss. Here we will discuss in detail how to choose the best non-silicone shampoo for preventing hair loss and the correct way to shampoo to prevent hair loss.
What is non-silicone shampoo?
Non-silicone shampoos are shampoos that do not contain silicone ingredients (dimethicone, cyclomethicone, siloki, etc.). Because silicone has a coating effect, shampoos with silicone make the hair easier to run your fingers through, but it is said that it creates a film on the hair, making it difficult for perms and coloring agents to penetrate. In addition, there is concern that silicone ingredients may get on the scalp, blocking pores and causing hair loss, so recently more people are using non-silicone shampoos.
When choosing a non-silicone shampoo, use a shampoo with amino acid-based cleansing ingredients.
So, what should we keep in mind when choosing a non-silicone shampoo to prevent hair loss? There are various causes of hair loss in women, including changes in female hormones due to aging, stress, unbalanced diet and weight loss, and improper hair care. The effect of silicone on hair loss cannot be denied, but it does not mean that any non-silicone shampoo will do, and at the same time, the cleaning ingredients must be checked.
There are three main types of cleaning ingredients: higher alcohol-based shampoos, soap-based shampoos, and amino acid-based shampoos. Of these, higher alcohol shampoos containing petroleum-based synthetic surfactants are not suitable for preventing hair loss because of their strong degreasing power and the strong irritation to the scalp caused by the cleaning ingredients, no matter how many non-silicone shampoos are used. If you choose a non-silicone shampoo to prevent hair loss, choose one that contains amino acid-based cleansing ingredients with mild cleansing power.
Correct shampooing method prevents hair loss
When using a non-silicone shampoo with amino acid-based cleansing ingredients as a hair loss prevention, it is important to practice the correct shampooing method. The following is an explanation of the correct shampooing method.
- Before shampooing, massage your scalp with your fingers to stimulate blood circulation.
- Pre-wash with lukewarm water to remove dirt and dust from hair.
- Put about a 500-yen coin of shampoo in the palm of your hand and work up a lather.
- Massage with the palms of your fingers from the collar to the crown of the head.
- Rinse thoroughly, taking time to avoid leaving any residue.
When the correct shampooing method is practiced, excess dirt and sebum are removed from the pores, and the scalp is kept healthy.
