Is Shampoo Made Out of Chemicals?

Author: Monica C.

Using chemicals to treat your hair is not bad. However, overusing chemicals, or misusing them might cause some undue problems. Always remember that shampoos and conditioners are rarely inert mixtures of chemicals. They're actually hodgepodges of active chemicals that systematically cleanse and repair your hair.

Not everything is positive about shampoos and conditioners. For one, many shampoos claim that they can remove the oil that's causing the itching in some scalps. They're very efficient in removing the sebum, to the point that the hair would look awful if not shampooed regularly.

Things to Remember

No matter what hair chemical you're using make sure that you take note of the following:

1. Viscosity - chemical viscosity implies the dose that you would be using on your hair. Always use an ample amount on your hair, and never, ever overdo it. There's a reason why manufacturers inform people of the proper amount because it's the safe amount to use.

2. Acidity - You can control the acidity of a hair preparation if it seems too much for your hair. You can easily alter the acidity of a new shampoo or conditioner by adding soap to it or plain water. Also, reducing the amount of the chemical would buffer the acid-reduction process.

What Makes a Good Shampoo?

Aside from cleaning your hair after application, shampoo is actually quite unique because its formulation keeps out bacterial growth and it makes hair more attractive to the eyes.

Why do shampoos have fragrances? First, people like feeling and smelling nice when they use shampoos. That's why all shampoos (save perhaps the medicated ones) make use of strong fragrances that can mask or hide the natural smell of a person's scalp.

What is Dimethicone and Panthenol?

Why do shampoos contain these two chemicals? No need to worry, these two chemicals are actually derived from one of the most common vitamins known to modern man: vitamin B. These are included in shampoos to aid in moisturizing dry hair shafts. These chemicals penetrate deep into hair shaft, cleansing, moisturizing and carrying away the day's load of dirt.

Aside from nurturing already existent terminal hair, these chemicals also help in cleansing and moisturizing areas in the scalp that have yet to be colonized by new hair. In a way, good, organic shampoos help speed up the 'maintenance' work of the scalp. Since modern individuals are exposed to more dirt and grime, this is indeed a welcome help.

Some shampoos also claim to treat dandruff. Basically, these shampoos control sebum and production on the scalp and help carry away some of the bacteria that might be contributing to the flakiness of the scalp. Other than that, we should remember that the Food and Drug Administration should be omnipresent on the labels of the shampoos that we do use.

As for shampoos that offer to add volume to your hair, these are actually quite necessary if you want to maintain shiny hair when the winter months come in. These also add volume to your hair by re-introducing lots of moisture to your drying hair shafts.
