Hair Care

Whether you're looking to overhaul and upgrade your hair routine or just want to experiment with something, there are many amazing hair care products out there. You just need to know what to look for and how each works.

Shampoo & Conditioner
Since their invention in the early 1900s, shampoo and conditioners have been among the most universally recognized hair care products. There are several types of shampoo:

Shampoo: Traditional shampoo cleanses the hair only and works well with a conditioner. Some shampoos achieve a specific goal, such as reducing dander or healing damaged hair.

Other types of shampoo include:
  • Dry Shampoo: Dry shampoo cleans your hair without water. While dry shampoo doesn't completely replace hair washing, it's an excellent option for extending the time between hair washes.
  • Two in One Shampoo: This type of shampoo serves as either shampoo and conditioner or shampoo and body wash in one bottle. These are helpful for caregivers and elderly users to have a one-and-done approach and eliminates the need to use multiple products.
  • Shampoo Caps: These are caps filled with dry shampoo and conditioner that can be used to clean, condition, and detangle without the need for rinsing with water or a long application process; simply apply the cap for an extended period and brush out the hair afterward. The cap is easy to use and convenient for individuals who struggle with mobility as well as caregivers who bathe patients.
  • Conditioner: Conditioner is another haircare staple. The goal of a conditioner is to protect hair from harsh chemicals and make it easier to manage. Assuming you're using a shampoo that doesn't have conditioner built-in, you will want to use a separate bottle of conditioner to make your hair softer and more manageable.

Brushes & Combs
There is a variety of brushes and combs available to help style your hair. The best type of brush or comb for you will depend on a variety of factors, including hair type, hair length, and desired style. For example, choosing a wide-tooth comb is considered more beneficial for thick hair.

Shaving Needs
Hair removal is another aspect of hair care. While deciding whether or not to remove your body hair from certain areas is a personal choice, there is a variety of great products available.

  • having Creams and Lotions: Shaving creams and lotions give your skin extra protection from the razor while shaving and usually provide a pleasant scent.
  • Shaving Razors: There are several types of shaving razors made for both men and women. The razors may be manual, handheld, or electronic. Disposable razors are convenient to buy in bulk and have on hand for single use in nursing homes, guest bedrooms, or in a caregiver's toolkit.
  • After Shave: Works as a skin conditioner that soothes skin after shaving. They are meant to help guard the shaved area against dryness and keep it feeling clean and refreshed.
  • Tweezers: A pair of tweezers is great for precise hair removal in limited areas like the eyebrows. You can also use tweezers to pluck stray hairs missed during your usual hair removal routine.
