How to Make Homemade Shampoo?


Shampoo basics

SHAMPOO IS LIME SOAP FOR YOUR HAIR - In fact, until recently, soap was what most people used to clean their tresses. Its primary purpose is to clean dirt and excess oil from your strands. That's it.

Shampoo can contain any number of the following ingredients:

  • Water is usually first or second ingredient listed on a bottle of shampoo. It dilutes the detergent and gives shampoo bulk.
  • Surfactants are detergents that cleanse and create lather. Because it is cheap to produce, sodium   lauryl sulphate is the most popular detergent and is usually the only detergent used in supermarket and chemist shampoos. Unfortunately, it is incredibly harsh-and, if you believe the rumours moving through the beauty industry -it may also pose a cancer risk. Other surfactants include sodium laureth sulphate, sodium cocoyl isetheoinate, methyl cocoyl taurate, cocamidopropyl betaine, cocamidopropylamine oxide, ammonium lauryl sulphate, ammonium laureth sulphate, and alpha olefin sulphonate.
  • Detanglers and anti-static agents are found is some shampoos. Quaternary ammonium compounds are common.
  • Humectants attract and retain water. Found most often in shampoos for dry, damaged, or chemically treated hair, the most common of these include glycerin, sorbitol, and hyaluronic acid.
  • Conditioning agents soften hair and retain moisture. Examples include amino acids, collagen, panthenol, proteins, and elastin.
  • Thickening agents give shampoos viscosity and make them easy to handle. A commonly used thickening agent is hydroxyethyl cellulose.

Preservatives prevent contamination from mould or bacteria. Search the label for methylparaben, quaternium-15, or propylparaben.

Cosmetic ingredients-and this includes hair-care products-are listed in descending order. This means a product contains most of whatever ingredient is listed first, and least of whatever ingredient is listed last.
