Are You Using The Right Shampoo For Your Hair Texture?

What Are The 12 Different Shampoos


We all have different hair types causing different problems. We even have different scalp types. Therefore, understanding the different kinds of shampoos available is essential.

People with dry hair issues should not use shampoos for oily hair, and vice versa. Likewise, if you have curly or coily hair, a shampoo designed for straight hair wouldn’t be appropriate. To resolve your hair issues and achieve healthy, glossy hair, you need a complete understanding of all the shampoo classifications available. Read to discover which shampoo is right for you.

Regular Shampoo

Regular hair shampoo is designed for people who don't have any specific hair needs or treatments. Regular shampoos are gentle cleansers with simple ingredients formulated to clean normal sebum production without stripping your scalp's natural oil, hydration, and shine from your strands.


Clarifying Shampoo
Clarifying shampoo is formulated specifically to trap those impurities and wash them away. It is an excellent addition to your hair care routine if you are an infrequent washer, swimmer, have problems with oily hair, or simply need a scalp refresh.


Moisturizing Shampoo
A moisturizing shampoo is all about having extra moisture content to lubricate the cleansing process to keep the hair supple and protected and stop natural moisture from washing away.  Moisturizing shampoo can also minimize tangles, which will lead to less breakage when your hair is dry. You can use 
Yes! Moisture Collection, it's a complete set to hydrate your hair, and keep it soft and tangle-free!


Volumizing Shampoo
Rather than bulking the width of your hair, volumizing shampoos produce lift. Your tapered locks tend to lay flat, so fullness is attained by adding a three-dimensional body and boosting your hair from the roots.


Protein Shampoo
Protein shampoo is a type of shampoo designed to cleanse, strengthen and increase the elasticity of the hair. These types of hair products typically contain several different proteins, including keratin, collagen, and silk. Many also contain amino acids, which are essential in the production of protein. 

You can use Yes! Moisture Shampoo is a powerfully cleansing formula that adds moisture and keratin protein to every strand while it refreshes, so you get the clean, soft, healthy hair you want, not the fragile, damaged hair caused by other shampoos.


Dry Shampoo
Otherwise known as hybrid shampoo is a type of shampoo that reduces hair greasiness without the need for water. It is in powder form and is typically administered from an aerosol can. Dry shampoo is often based on corn starch or rice starch.


Color-Safe Shampoo
For most products, a “color-safe” label means it's free of any harsh chemicals that can cause your hair color to fade. The most prevalent chemicals you'll see in shampoos are sulfates, which are strong detergents meant to cut through grease and enhance that bubbly lather most of us are used to. You can use Yes! Moisture Shampoo, t’s safe for color-treated hair, and will make your hair smoother than ever.


Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
Anti-dandruff shampoos contain one of the following active ingredients that act on the various causes of dandruff: Salicylic acid, which helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of the scalp. Coal tar or selenium sulfide, are two ingredients that slow the growth of skin cells on the scalp. 

You can use Nora's Restoring Shampoo, clean and revitalize your hair with this ultra-beneficial, Black girl magical, moisturizing shampoo. Specially formulated with a unique blend of natural herbs and oils.


Chlorine Removal Shampoo or Swimmers Shampoo
Chlorine removal shampoo acts as a clarifying agent to remove chlorine deposits in the hair, eliminate any green tint, and help prevent further damage. These shampoos also aid in alleviating itchy skin caused by chlorine and moisturize hair that is often dry after swimming. Some chlorine shampoos also remove salt and styling products, like hair gels. Many users also believe the shampoo helps to prevent sun damage.


Shampoo Bar
A shampoo bar is a solid form of the traditional hair cleanser. The main difference is that shampoo bars often don't contain the same detergents found in many liquid shampoos, which can sometimes strip hair of its natural oils.

Natural or Organic Shampoo

Think of it as natural vs. synthetic. Organic shampoo brands gently infuse your hair follicles and skin cells with herbal extracts, natural minerals, and oils that can help address skin conditions.

Natural shampoo is a hair cleansing product that utilizes only ingredients found in nature as part of the formula. This is in contrast to most commercial shampoos that use all synthetic ingredients in the product, or shampoos that are a combination of natural and synthetic ingredients.

Nora Hair Products
are 100% naturally organic and professionally made to keep your hair healthy and strong, less from breakage and damage while promoting hair growth.



  • The type of shampoo you use depends on your hair type and problem.
  • A regular shampoo contains mild cleansing agents appropriate for all hair types.
  • People with dry hair should choose a shampoo that has hydrating ingredients.
  • People with oily hair should definitely use volumizing shampoo to give fuller and bouncier hair.
  • Please avoid shampoos that contain sulfates, silicones, and other harmful chemicals as they cause dryness and may irritate the skin and cause health problems in the long run.
