How to choose a shampoo according to your hair type?

Dry, oily, mixed, curly or coloured hair? Choosing a shampoo can transform the result of your daily routine. Each shampoo fulfils a function and meets a need.

Depending on their nature, some are more suitable and promote a good balance. Are you lost among all the existing products? Here’s a little guide to know which shampoo to choose according to your hair type.

comment choisir Shampoing

Shampoo for “normal” hair.

What is normal hair? The definition on which the Au 2e coiffeurs-visagistes team bases itself corresponds to a hair that does not require extra nutrition and does not tend to be greasy at the base.

Several factors come into play in order to know your hair well and to provide it with what it needs, since even hair that is said to be “normal” requires nourishment. Hair can be fine, thick and the scalp can be sensitive, to name just a few examples. A shampoo adapted to these realities is then still necessary.


A rich shampoo for dry hair

shampoing riche pour cheveux secsDry hair tends to be dull, rough and brittle. That’s why it needs to be washed with a nutritious and moisturizing product. Wash it with a moisturizing shampoo that nourishes from the inside out and enhances it with a nutrient-rich shampoo that provides softness and shine. Choose products based on vegetable oil such as avocado oil, argan oil, macadamia nut oil, or shea butter.

For very dry, brittle and damaged hair, I recommend Moisturizing shampoo from Keune’s So Pure range,” explains Léo, master hairdresser and owner of Au 2e coiffeurs-visagistes salon. A rich shampoo that repairs and regulates the natural moisture of hair and scalp. The emollients, olive oil and shea butter, restore the natural hydration and shine of hair and scalp. »

An invigorating and gentle shampoo for oily hair

shampoing tonifiant et doux pour cheveux grasOily hair often lacks volume and has a shiny appearance due to a high level of sebum secretion. In addition to spacing out washes, prefer a gentle, purifying and invigorating shampoo that will refresh your roots. Shampoos with a base of lemon, mint, green tea, grape or clay are ideal for this.

I recommend using a shampoo like Keune’s Derma Regulate that makes life hard for oily hair while keeping your hair soft and being kind to your scalp,” says Leo. Another suggestion is So Pure Energizing Shampoo which not only takes care of the oily side of the hair, but also helps to enrich it and promote blood circulation which stimulates hair growth and promotes oxygenation. »


Shampoos for mixed hair

Mixed hair has the particularity of being oily at the roots and dry at the ends. If this is your case, you need a cleansing shampoo that will purify your roots.

This should be followed by a conditioner for combination hair to nourish and moisturize your ends. A shampoo for oily hair is preferred, while moisturizing and conditioning the lengths for dry hair.

It’s not easy to care for mixed hair, but fortunately, there are solutions that take good care of the hair’s well-being,” says Leo.

For hair washing, use the Derma Regulate from Keune’s Care range, which balances the hair, or the Energizing Shampoo from Keune’s So Pure range, for a result that lives up to expectations.

It is essential to follow it up with a conditioner such as Vital Nutrition Mask or So Pure Recover Treatment, which takes care of the hair from the inside out. »

Specialized shampoos for colored hair

Coloured hair needs a shampoo that takes care of its pigmentation so that the colour lasts as long as possible.

“I have several recommendations for coloured hair. So Pure Color Care Shampoo, which contains sunflower seed extract, prevents color from fading.

The essential oils of jasmine and sandalwood provide a soft, creamy aromatherapy with a subtle woody scent.

The ingredients are organically grown. I also like Tinta Color shampoo with its triple UVA, UVB protection, a color stabilizer and its silk protein that protects the hair fiber. »


Shampoos for curly or frizzy hair

Curly or frizzy hair needs nourishment, protection and discipline. To do this, choose shampoos based on avocado vegetable oil, macadamia nut, argan, or shea butter. Formulas supplemented with sheathing active ingredients help eliminate frizz. The smoothing shampoo is also suitable for disciplining hair.

“I have three suggestions,” says Léo: Recover shampoo from So Pure, Satin Oil from Keune’s Care line and Curl Control, also from the Care line, three must-haves.

Tannin straightening for all hair types

Tannin smoothing is a fortifying treatment, enriched with keratin and vitamins, suitable for all hair types. It guarantees smooth hair for several months. A soft, nourishing and moisturizing shampoo will suit you perfectly after this type of straightening, preferably without sulphates or parabens.

“All the shampoos in Keune’s So Pure range are perfectly suited to straightened hair,” says Léo.

Shampoos for sensitive hair

shampoings pour cheveux sensibilisés

Sensitized hair often looks dull and is difficult to untangle. They need a nourishing and moisturizing shampoo, enriched with keratin to deeply nourish them.

For sensitized hair, I recommend Keune’s So Pure Recover shampoo,” says Leo. Nourishing and moisturizing, it is paraben- and sulfate-free, enriched with avocado and coconut oil, argan oil rich in vitamins A and E and ylang-ylang and palmorosa essential oils. »

Permanent waves or temporary curls, how to choose?


Keratin perm

Permanents or temporary curls, how to choose?

Are you hesitating between a permanent perm or just for a definite period of time? Let’s start with a small point to help you make this choice. Doing a perm deserves a little thought before you start.

Above all, several elements such as the length of the hair, its volume, or its colouring are to be taken into account. A perm is by definition a method that allows you to curl your hair in a long-lasting way. It is therefore necessary to integrate this notion of duration in your choice even if several variations exist. Let’s take a closer look at this question !

A perm for life? Why not!

First, if you opt for a perm that lasts, keep in mind that you will have the same hairstyle for several months. Your stylist will use products that will permanently solidify your hair with curlers that are adapted to create curls.


To maintain your hair, the choice of products offered to you is of paramount importance. Favour those that will naturally moisturize your hair in the hands of a professional to make it more supple and guarantee its vitality.

And be aware that the perm solution is available for several levels of hair, although your hairdresser may need to reduce them a little for a better hold of the curls according to their original size. The Au 2e team offers the keratin curl perm (Keratin Curl from Keune), a solution that adapts to your hair type.

A reversible perm, what if it’s possible?

Now that you’ve got your perm done, all you have to do is enjoy your new head. Afterwards, regular maintenance of your hair should be done with suitable shampoos and masks that protect it from any external aggression. And if you wish to give yourself the choice to change along the way to regain your original hair, you should also bear in mind certain information.

The care given to your hair to fix your curls is made to last. So you have two options, either you’re lucky and your curls will fade away by themselves after a while. Either you will have to cut your hair at the root where your hair has been fixed and wait for your natural hair to grow back.

An alternative such as straightening exists. Your hairdresser will make sure that the method used for perming is compatible with the appropriate type of straightening.

A curly brushing (wavy)

Before opting for a change such as a perm, ask a member of our team to try a curly blow-dry. Depending on the volume and length of your hair, your stylist will perform the technique in 45 minutes or less. Ideal for an important event, your hair will regain its natural look after a few hours.

Between permanent or temporary curls, solutions exist. Indulge yourself and your hairdresser will be happy to advise you on how to preserve the health and shine of your hair!

Solutions for the appearance of the first white hair

Des cheveux blancs dissimulés dans un balayage

White hairs hidden by a balayage

One white hair spotted looking at you in the mirror and it’s disaster? Don’t worry, there are many options to feel beautiful and confident despite the appearance of this unwanted hair!

Where did the white hair come from?

According to various studies, the average age of onset of the first gray hair is 35 years, but it can also appear much earlier. It is a natural evolution of hair aging.

Melanin gradually disappears as well as the pigmentation that colours your hair. The appearance of white hair is not due to stress, as is often heard. Triggering factors can be heredity, poor lifestyle, smoking, emotional shock, etc.

Why don’t we just rip them off 

It’s the first reflex that comes to mind, but pulling out your first white hair is a capillary aggression: it may grow back thicker, disrupt the renewal cycle and damage your scalp. Don’t stress! The first thing to do is to ask your hairdresser for advice.

Two tips to avoid hair dying

Hair Mascara

You cheat a little, but mascara is the perfect product to make up the hair. Apply it on the strands of hair to reveal white hair. Choose a color close to your own for a natural result.

Beware, mascara is a temporary solution, it fades with shampoo. An incorrect application can also leave imperfections in the hair.

The colored spray

Fast and efficient. You use it like dry shampoo, just a few centimeters from the desired area. The spray camouflages your white hair in seconds. Practical every day, it can be used anywhere and anytime.

Hair Dying : the miracle solution?

Permanent hair colouring is an effective solution to eliminate your gray hair. But take some time to think about it.

This solution is suitable when you have 50% of your hair gray. Other techniques exist to reduce gray hair and to sublimate your hair.

The balayage

Opt for balayage, a discreet colouring technique that consists of colouring fine strands.

It blends in perfectly with the natural base and boosts the hair’s highlights. For care, the ideal is two to three times a year, to preserve highlights.

Tone on tone (toner) or semi-permanent colouring

Without ammonia, it has a low oxidizing power. Less restrictive than permanent colouring, it gives your hair a radiant and intense look.

Choose a colour close to yours and the natural effect will be there. Tone on tone colouring covers up to 50% of your white hair. However, it fades after six to eight weeks.

Is there a haircut for every age?

coupe cheveux selon age

We all woke up one day and said, “I want to change my mind.” As we move forward in life, we have moments of doubt and the desire to change everything: our interior design, our look; there’s no shortage of haircuts.

You’ve been wearing a beautiful long mane forever? The day will come when you will want to go short. Why such a change? Because life is doing its work, age is growing and the way we see ourselves is changing.

Before you walk through the doors of a hair salon, ask yourself if there is a haircut for your age. This will guide you in your choice and help you avoid disappointments.

20 years, free cutting in all circumstances

Young and crazy, at 20, they have their whole life ahead of them. Their hair is then coloured blue, pink, red, cut in shades, etc… The cuts change several times a year. We go from long to short, from short to long. It is curled, shaved on one side, but not on the other.

In short, we do what we want, we test. This is the age of freedom, of carefree, of the will to express oneself by any means. We enjoy ourselves and whatever the consequences. It doesn’t matter, it grows back!

At the age of 30, the haircut evolves with the person

This is usually the phase of the big upheavals in life. Marriage, children, a busy job. All of which give you just as many reasons to want to change your mind.

You want something that’s easy to do, low-maintenance. Maybe you also need to fit in with your job. But you still want to be noticed, not to let yourself go: you structure, shape and glamourise.

40 years, the cut of maturity

You stay young in your head, but you’re not 20 anymore! The questioning makes itself felt, the desire for change follows in quick succession.

What if we finally do what we really want? What if we could get out of this “metro-work-asleep” straitjacket? Tired of the compulsory blow dry at work? Ponytailing around the clock to avoid knots? Everybody’s got a right to treat themselves. It’s time to regain a little capillary freedom! The watchword: lightness. Simplicity remains a sure thing.

50 years old/60 years old and over, stay beautiful and natural

Usually, the older you get, the more you go for short cuts. Because gray hair is less beautiful long? Because at this age, long hair is not flattering?

In any case, it is better to avoid anything that pulls the hair back, or that hardens the face. Square, straightened or too structured cuts are not the friends of quinquas/sexagenarians. It’s no longer the time to be exuberant.

As you can see, every age has its own haircut. Nevertheless, we must not forget an important point: the shape of the face. It holds a primordial place in the choice of a cut.
