About Shampoo


Shampoos are the cleaning formulations that are used for different uses like personal care, pet use, and carpets. Shampoos clean your scalp of dirt, oil, and styling products. If your scalp is oily & the ends are dry then you should choose a shampoo that is best for the scalp & make the tips moisturizing.


What does it mean when shampoo bases are “natural?”


Our definition of natural means that the cleansing agents used in the formulation of our bases are gentle on the hair, scalp, and skin. Synthetic shampoos expose the hair & the skin to harsh chemical ingredients that can potentially have harmful long-term effects, including skin irritation, dryness, and a reduction in the size or deterioration of the hair follicles, premature graying, and even hair loss. Natural shampoos don’t have any side effects. Our products have gentle ingredients only.

Shampoos are the cleaning formulations that are used for different uses like personal care, pet use, and carpets. They are composed primarily of chemicals called surfactants that have the special ability to surround oily materials on surfaces and allow them to be rinsed away by water. Most commonly, shampoos are used for personal care, especially for washing the hair.


History:


Before the arrival of shampoos, people typically used soap for personal care. However, soap has the disadvantages of being irritating to the eyes and incompatible with hard water, which made it leave a dull-looking film on the hair. The 1960s brought the detergent technology we use today.

Define Your Scalp Type


Before choosing the shampoo it is important to know what shampoo does, how to use it & how it relates to your hair and scalp type. Shampoos clean your scalp of dirt, oil, and styling products. If your scalp is oily & the ends are dry then you should choose a shampoo that is best for the scalp & make the tips moisturizing.


Shampoo Choices for Oily Scalps


Before choosing the shampoo it is important to know what shampoo does, how to use it & how it relates to your hair and scalp type. Shampoos clean your scalp of dirt, oil, and styling products. If your scalp is oily & the ends are dry then you should choose a shampoo that is best for the scalp & make the tips moisturizing.

  • Avoid shampoos that are hydrating, moisturizing, smoothing, or good for curly hair. These tend to add too much moisture to your already oily scalp.
  • Check the labels that mention volumizing, strengthening, or balancing. These products are non-moisturizing and more effective at removing excess oil.
  • A clarifying shampoo can be a big help for oily scalp conditions, but be careful to not overuse the product and dry out your scalp. 
  • Spend extra time working the shampoo into your scalp to break up oil, and rinse your scalp very well.
  • After shampooing, avoid working your conditioner into your scalp. 

Shampoo Choices for Dry Scalps


When your scalp is dry, itchy, or flaky then choosing the right shampoo can be the first line of defense from the uncomfortable, sometimes embarrassing conditions that can occur. If your scalp is very dry, itchy, or flaky, consider shampoos that are specifically formulated for dry scalps. Ingredients such as menthol and tea tree can help moisturize. Try these tips for a dry scalp:

  • Avoid strengthening, fortifying, and volumizing shampoos. These can strip your scalp of necessary moisture.
  • For scalps that are only slightly dry with little to no itching or flaking, look for shampoo labels that promote moisture, hydration, smoothing, or curls. These products promote moisture retention and can be beneficial to your dry scalp.

Shampoo Choice Based on Hair Type


When the scalp is not dry neither oily you can choose whatever shampoo fits according to your desired needs:

  • Hydrating/moisturizing shampoo: great for adding moisture, shine, and smoothness to hair. Good for thick, curly, or coarse hair that lacks moisture.
  • Volumizing shampoo: excellent choice if your hair is fine or limp for an extra boost without weighing the hair down.
  • Strengthening/fortifying shampoo: good for damaged, over-processed, highlighted, weakened, or brittle hair. 
  • Balancing shampoo: typically a nice middle-of-the-road option. 
  • Smoothing/straight hair shampoo: helps seal the cuticle and provide a great start for straight and smooth styles.
  • Curly hair shampoo: very moisturizing and contains ingredients that reduce frizz without weighing down the curls.

Contraindications:
