The history of shampoo lasts almost as long as the history of humanity. After all, even ancient people tried to invent some means for head washing. Of course, it wasn't easy to call such products shampoos, but they were the modern solution progenitors, which we all used to call shampoo.
Officially, the first shampoo was invented by the German chemist Hans Schwarzkopf in the early twentieth century. His shampoo had a powdery structure and became the first patented formally product in the field of cosmetology for the head. After 16 years, this type of product became known as Schaumpoon. And a few years later, Schwarzkopf invented an entirely new kind of product – a liquid one.
What are shampoos?
The main functions of a quality shampoo are scalp care and cleansing of any hair type. A beauty product should be able to get rid of the remains of styling elements, silicone and dust. Even budget options should have the following feature set:
guardianship of the cuticle;
minimizing static stress;
moisturizing the skin surface.
Professional products are able to cleanse, degrease, and add extra shine for a long time after washing.
What types of shampoos are there?
Leading cosmetologists identify several of the most common types of cleansers, depending on the type of hair:
for normal – acid-balanced, technical (salon) and neutral shampoos. Alkaline solutions (pH) are never part of high-quality cosmetics of this type. The main task of the products is considered to be simply washing and maintaining a healthy look;
for coloured – special cleansing agents that preserve the decorative colour. The composition includes only mild chemical compounds that wash off the minimum amount of caring substances and paints;
for the injured – beauty products with an artificial regenerative function. They help create the appearance of vibrant hair by smoothing the surface by filling voids in damaged areas. These agents also help to cleanse the skin gently;
for dry and frizzy – conditioner-effect cleaners. Moisturizes the surface of the skin and hair for a long time. It is formulated with conditioning ingredients that ensure freshness at any time of the year. This category also includes a summer series of shampoos;
for thin – temporary beauty products, giving additional volume. The composition contains film-forming components and silicones, which are fixed on the chevelure and create the effect of increasing volume.
Today the beauty market has a huge range of cleansers. Everyone can find suitable treatment in the MAKEUP online store. And remember, do not save too much on the scalp's health because the attractiveness of the hair directly depends on its condition.
