Shampoo: The word hass English origins called "shampoo" by the British hairdressers, who adapted the verb " champo ", which means to "assemble " in Hindu. It was necessary to wait for 1890 so that the shampoo based on tensio-ingredients makes its appearance, in Germany. Before this cosmetic introduction, the washing of hair was made like in the time of ancient Egypt, c.a.d with some water blended in the lemon juice to withdraw the sebum of the hair.

The business of the modern shampoo returns to the American John Breck who perfected different expressions according to types of hair and of scalp, and hoped to confine his premature baldness! Shampoos for normal hair made a big buzz in the hairdressing salons in the thirties. Later, he supplemented his offer with shampoos for greasy hair and dry. In spite of the huge success met by his products, John Breck was not capable of struggling his baldness...

1. The shampoos which I find in professional salons differ from those of the supermarkets?

Of course, difference is very significant. It is especially at the level of the concentration of ingredients that difference is notable (ex: protein). Not neglectable, the professional ranges are developed from experience and felt by the hairdressers, and not from the inquiries of the marketing services of the producers! The professional shampoos have a pH between 4,5 and 6,5, and their emollient and active cleansing damage the scalp often less while cleaning the hair better.

2. Is there a shampoo so that my hair grows more quickly?

No shampoo can grow hair, but some of them help, on the other hand, to reinforce them, to clean the scalp better and to make it healthy, what will favour the shoot. It was the question which enlivened John Breck during all its career!

3. What is a daily usage shampoo?

Most shampoos can be suitable for a daily usage, but some people specify it more, or use the term of " light expression ". These shampoos have a treatment in general softer, and contain a slightly sour pH which hair appreciates. The most important there still rest to choose a shampoo adapted to its type of hair.

4. Must I wash my hair every day?

The frequency of washing varies according to the individuals, depends intimately on led activities and on the quantity of sebum that secret the scalp. If you wash them every day, prefer a professional shampoo which will attack them less.

5. If I let the shampoo on my hair during 2-3 minutes, these will come out again from it cleaner?

In no way, shampoos are intended to get rid of the hair's particles, they do not absorb dirtiness.

6. Can the regular shampoos grease my hair?

No, washing your hair more often will make your hair look greasier, but massages and frictions of the scalp on the other hand do help. Prefer a shampoo in that case for greasy hair.

7. I have different shampoos  in my bathroom: must I be held to the only one or is he worth to change the product regularly?

If you use the shampoo which is suitable for the needs of your hair, you do not need to change product. From time to time on the other hand, you can use a clarifying shampoo, to clear out your hair of wastes.

8. By changing the shampoo brand, will my hair get less used to the product?

The needs of our hair differ according to seasons, also instead of changing the brand, rather change the type of shampoo.

9. Will it be good for my hair if I wash them every so often with a bread of soap?

No, bad idea. The pH bread of soap is too alkaline, especially if you have the coloured hair: outrage to leave a fatty residue on the hair, he can harm your colour or perms.

10. I use every day of the styling products (frost, foam, lacquer), but I have an impression that my shampoo does not manage to clear the hair out completely from all these residues. What can I do?

One-two times a week, you can have recourse to a deep cleansing shampoo rather soft. The clarifying shampoo contains also more detergent than a so-called "normal" shampoo: to clean the hair slightly, its pH is generally higher. In every cases, use should not exceed 2 shampoos a week.
