9 Things About Shampoo No One Told You Before

Almost every girl dreams to have "A good hair day." And to make it work, shampoo plays a very important role. When it comes to washing your hair, simply lathering, rinsing and repeating, the process doesn't work. In order to get the luxurious locks of hair, you need to follow every information that will guide you the correct way to wash your hair. Most of you probably think that your shampoo is the foundation product that will give you long, shiny and silky hair. There are many facts that you didn't know about your shampoo and I'm gonna reveal it right now!Come on!

1. Using shampoo

You may use the herbal shampoo or the salon brand; it won't show you the results if you don't use them as they are supposed to be used. After applying the shampoo, gently massage your scalp with fingers so that impurities like oil and wax, which makes the scalp unhealthy, can be removed. Also, ensure that you rinse your shampoo completely. 

2. Not all the ingredients are necessarily better. 

Not all the natural ingredients work on hair, for example, lemon which is claimed to be a good ingredient for hair can irritate scalp and hair follicles. Also, mint and menthol which gives a soothing effect can cause allergies. These elements are balanced by experts in shampoo, don't use them as a natural home remedy. 

3. Don't expect the claimed results. 

Don't just go on the results claimed by the shampoo commercials. A good foundation product and a lot of patience is required to get luxurious locks of hair. 

4. Less is more.

Using too much shampoo creates a lot of foam, which prevents massaging scalp properly. Using the right amount of quantity will help the shampoo work effectively. 

5. Even the fussy sounding ingredients may not work for you. 

Many of the shampoos you use may show good results after the first wash, but it creates the build up after fourth or fifth wash. The commercials claim that they contain ingredients like olive oil, milk or any other such elements, but the fact is that one to five percent of that ingredient makes the difference. 

6. Your fancy salon brand shampoos are easily available at the nearest drugstore. 

Gone are the days when people used to believe that the salon brand shampoos available at the drugstore is adulterated or of low quality. The time has changed and the companies have extended the places where they can sell their products. 

7. Use clarifying shampoo for blondes. 

Your hair tends to become porous if you've dyed or bleached them and they are more prone to absorb unwanted impurities from the outside environment. Use clarifying shampoo more often so that they can neutralize unwanted tones. 

8. Your hair never gets used to shampoo over time. 

Tossing the bottle if shampoo isn't working is not a good idea. As the seasons change, so does the texture of hair. Also, not rinsing off hair thoroughly can create a build up of shampoo on the scalp. It has nothing to do with shampoo not showing it's results anymore. 

9. Not all ingredients are created equally.  

Many shampoos contain foaming agents which are harsh and can dry scalp. Stay away from such shampoos that use ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate as foaming agents.
