Cosmetic hair care products

Cosmetic hair care products for grooming and styling can help improve one's image and life style. They can change your look, reshape your face and thereby make you look younger. There are many shampoos and conditioners in the market that claim to make the hair look fuller and younger. Most of these products claim to make the hair shaft look healthier and improve the overall appearance of the hair.

Characteristics of the hair shaft

The major characteristics of the hair shaft that effects its function and and appearance are elasticity, texture, and porosity. Hair shaft has three major chemical bonds, disulfide bonds, hydrogen bonds and salt bonds. These characteristics will effect the permeability of the hair to the hair care products such as shampoos and conditioners.

Shampoos and conditioners

There are many shampoos and conditioners that are in the market and claim to help with hair loss. Some of these shampoos are intended to remove the excess oil from the hair and scalp, reduce the number of bacteria and other microorganisms that live on the hair and scalp, and cleanse the hair from dirt and dead skin cells. Conditioners should be used after shampooing to facilitate more vibrant, more manageable hair ready for styling. Some of the leave in conditioners cover the hair shaft with a thin coating of a polymer, which temporarily repairs hair shafts and eliminates static electricity as a styling problem. They may contain hydrolyzed protein which thickens and strengthens the hair shaft, repairs split ends and damaged hair.

Right hair care products

Finding the right hair care products is only one factor of proper hair care. If one suffers from genetic hair loss, hair care products can be used to minimize damage to the hair shafts and scalp but do not have any effect on the follicles. A more comprehensive medical hair loss regiment should include treatment for both the scalp, hair shaft and hair follicle.
