Hair Washing Tips and What Drugstore Products You Should Look Into

It’s a new year, and we all want to start 2024 with new hair goals. Whether it’s finding the perfect hairstyle to fit your face, refreshing it with new color, or letting it grow strong and healthy, you will always need one thing: the perfect hair care products for you. 

There’s a myth that in order to get healthy hair, you need to spend a lot of money. In reality, you can get celebrity-level hair with products from your local drugstore or grocery hair care aisle! While there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution for hair care, Utopia Salon is here to help you figure out what works best for your hair without breaking the bank. 

Keep in mind that some products may work amazingly for one person while doing nothing for another. It’s all about testing to find the best product for you, and our stylists are here to help guide you in the right direction on your hair journey. 

If you have oily hair, you may benefit from washing it more frequently. If you have drier hair, we recommend going a few days without washing to let your natural oils build up. When washing your hair, focus the shampoo on your scalp to avoid drying out your ends, and focus the conditioner on your ends to add moisture. 

Try researching products tailored to your hair. There are a myriad of products available with a wide range of focuses, from dry hair to curly hair to fine hair and more. We recommend investigating your hair type before making any purchase. 

Products with heavy chemicals and harmful ingredients should be avoided. The cleaner the product, the better it is for your hair. Looking at the complex names listed under ingredients can feel overwhelming, so we are here to recommend affordable, healthy shampoos and conditioners that can be found in most hair care aisles. 

  1. The brand Nexxus is known for offering great shampoo and conditioners at drugstore prices. 
  2. Another great brand is Shea Moisture. They proudly represent their name and ensure their users retain the best moisture.
  3. A relatively newer, sleeker-looking brand called Kristin Ess has also worked beautifully for people – especially those with colored hair. It is super hydrating and tries to cater to all hair types. 

If you have any questions or would like to set up a consultation to speak with one of our experienced stylists to try and understand your hair type and what products you should be using, call our team!
