Why should we use shampoo and what are its benefits?

Have you ever asked yourself why you use shampoo? In my mind, the answer was always clear: we use shampoo to clean our scalp and hair from products built-up and dirt. But using shampoo is not a simple task, mainly because finding out the best product for your hair type and need can be a stressful process, it takes time and sometimes it costs lots of money.


So, let's talk about shampoo! I promise this blogpost will be informative and fun.

The history of shampoo


Shampoo is a hair care product recently developed - the first synthetic shampoos were introduced in USA in 1930's. Can you believe that bar soap made of animal fat and lye was used (and still is used) to remove unwanted oil and dirt from hair? I can only imagine how this product can leave the hair dry and rough. The development of shampoo, a product that acts in the same way as bar soap with the addition to leave the hair soft, smooth and manageable, was a huge advance for our hair care!!!


Today, you can find an infinite number of shampoos made for all hair types and need in the market. The main ingredient of these products is surfactants, which is responsible for cleansing the hair and the scalp. Unfortunately, surfactants are also responsible for removing the natural oil from hair.
