Categories : Hair Care

Are you having a bad hair day? Well, nothing truly determines the rest of the day than our precious mane. It literally influences our mood and even day! Although we tend to pamper ourselves with a few sessions of hair treatments at our go-to hair salon, what if we need a quick fix? Besides, hair treatments can be pricy, and sometimes all you really need is the best hair care products to resolve all of your hair issues. From hair oil, ampoule to a hair mask, Beauty Insider has gathered the 10 best hair care products in Malaysia so that you can have a lustrous and healthy mane.

How to Choose the Right Hair Care Products for Your Hair Type?

Straight Hair

If you have straight hair you need to opt for the products that volumize the hair and prevent any products that are heavy. Although people with straight hair are blessed with a natural shine, their hair becomes greasy easily. Hence, dry shampoo will be a perfect hair care product to prevent such issues.

Wavy Hair

Wavy hair requires a product to tame the frizz without affecting the natural curl. Therefore, it is recommended that you opt for hair care products that are formulated to moisturize the hair and if you have wavy hair, ditch the dry shampoo. Plus, you need to invest in a good hydrating hair mask to further enhance the benefits. Besides that, avoid using any hair styling products that have alcohol and gels.

Curly Hair

People with curly hair are more prone to frizz and dry hair, thus in order to control the frizz you need to choose hair care products that moisturize your hair. So, choose the suitable shampoo and conditioner to hydrate your mane and layer it with styling oil or even a curl refreshing mist to define it more. However, you need to avoid using any hair spray as it can induce frizz.

Very Curly or Kinky Hair

The key to managing very curly or kinky hair is by using moisturizing hair care products. Use a heavy moisturizing conditioner to hydrates it and opt for a hair mask after you wash your hair to retain the moisturize. The rule of thumb is to use creamy hair care products and you can experiment with hair oils to add more definition to your hair.
