“The Great Scientific Leaps” Changes How We Use Shampoos Today

Primary Use:

Since its conception in the early 18th. Century shampoos serve one primary role and that was to cleanse the scalp and hair from accumulated sebum (natural oil secretion from the sebaceous glands of the skin), environmental pollution and chemical particles.

Secondary Use:

The “great scientific leaps” at the turn of the 20th. Century, saw innovative ideas to further enhance the formulation. This created a spectrum of shampoo ranges that now not only served to cleanse the scalp but also to condition, moisturize and protect it. So what are the secondary uses of the shampoo? These secondary functions are very much dependent on the formulation and the active ingredients used to create them.

1) Conditioning the hair so as to retain its softness while strengthening the hair root and shaft.

2) Moisturizing to prevent drying of both scalp and hair.

3) Providing essential vitamins and minerals for proper hair maintenance and growth

4) Providing antibacterial coverage

5) Retaining hair color. Some shampoos have dyes added to them is low concentrations so as to dye the hair while cleansing it. These colors are generally not “locked in” and are temporary.

6) Hair fillers to reinforce and strengthen damaged hair shaft.

7) Fragrance for the “during shower” and “post shower” relaxation feel.

These revolutionary innovations in shampoo formulation are ever evolving and each progressive step forward takes us closer to that one perfect shampoo that companies and customers dream about.

Ways to Maintain Healthy Hair

Having a balanced diet at least once daily so as to provide your body, scalp and hair with all the nutrients required.

Shampooing your hair regularly to ensure your scalp is free from sweat and grit that causes both bacterial and fungal infections.

Invest in quality shampoos. Read and familiarize yourself with the ingredient list. Cheap shampoos are plentiful in both pharmacies and hypermarkets and always remember, they are cheap for the simple reason that the quality of the active ingredients are compromised. High priced branded shampoos are generally better since not only have these products been diligently researched, the active ingredients used are of a higher quality. Then again, not every expensive brand is good. So once again take time to read and research the brand before committing yourself towards a purchase. Shampoos are “long-term use” products so make sure you are comfortable with the brand.

Brand loyalty is important when it comes to the use of shampoos. Regularly changing shampoo brands will result in your scalp being forced to adapt to varying pH and chemical levels which can result in long term scalp and hair damage.

Making sure your hair remains moist every hour, every day, every year.

Comb your hair using hair brushes with well spaced bristles. If the bristles are too narrow, it can result in dislodging of tangled hair. Combing your hair should be done gently and methodically. No tugging No forcing No fighting.

Only look for certified hair stylists with a good sense of hair care to manage your hair.

Seek the help of your family doctor in the event you notice sudden excessive hair loss.

Hair loss can be a mirror of other systemic problems.
