Shampoo 101: Choose the right shampoo for your hair


Who’d have thought that choosing a shampoo could be so confusing! Should you go for hydrating, strengthening, smoothing, lengthening, color-protecting, thickening, or clarifying? Seems like the only thing you can be sure of is that you need it to have an “ing” in the product description… dah-ling!

That’s why at Number 4 High Performance Hair Care we’ve deliberately kept it simple.

We offer three high performance, luxurious options ALL designed to lavish hair with an intoxicating blend of natural ingredients and botanicals that work diligently to enhance natural beauty and repair damage. You can shop the range of shampoos HERE.

N4’s focus is on gentle, non-stripping formulations that impart silky shine, marvelous moisture, and voluptuous volume. Oh, and did we mention, all Number 4 shampoos not only cleanse and purify, but they do it without the need for added chemicals or nasty ingredients with names like sulfate and sodium chloride. C’est magnifique.

Know Your Scalp Type

But one thing we do recommend before you go ahead and invest in a high-performance shampoo is that you assess your scalp type. This will help you narrow down your options and address any specific concerns.

Whether you have an oily or dry scalp N4 has the perfect hair care product for you with formulas designed to help soothe scalps and uplift your spirits.

When it comes to oily scalps (typified by hair that tends to look lank and greasy in between washes) you need to avoid anything overly hydrating and instead look for words such as volumizing, balancing and strengthening in the description. These formulations remove excess oil but without stripping the hair. The perfect example being N4’s Volumizing Shampoo which is available in four different options from a whopping professional sized 64oz bottle right down to the perfectly portable and compact mini 1.5 oz travel shampoo.

Another fabulous option if you tend to have an oily scalp condition is what’s known as a clarifying shampoo. Again, N4 offers up the goods in four super convenient sized bottles, ideal for all budgets. What’s excellent about N4’s Clarifying Shampoo is that it deeply cleanses with plant based extracts without stripping away the color or moisture. It works equally as well as a weekly deep cleaning treatment as it does your regular daily shampoo.

For those of you that have a dry, flaky scalp you need to focus on moisture retention so the keywords to be on the lookout for are hydrating, smoothing, soothing, and replenishing. An absolute no-no for itchy scalps is any shampoo containing sulfates. Luckily that’s one thing you’ll never need to worry about with the N4 range. Our top pick is the Hydrating Shampoo. It’s highly concentrated yet delivers weightless moisturization. It’s a veritable miracle worker on hair that’s over-processed, coarse and unruly or just in need of lots of TLC. Like all the N4 range, it also smells divine. If you’ve never stepped foot inside a Parisian boutique, then close your eyes, breathe in the intoxicating fragrance, and get ready to be instantly transported to France, if only in your dreams! Heavenly hair awaits.

In celebration of Labor Day, we’re currently offering 30% off ALL Number 4 shampoos, no matter what size you opt for. It’s our biggest ever shampoo sale so be sure to grab yourself a bargain before it’s too late. You can check out the entire range HERE.
