Shampoo must remove all dirt, oils, cosmetics, and skin debris from the scalp and hair shaft while causing no harm to the scalp or hair. Shampoos with a high alkalinity level should be avoided since they cause the hair to become dry and brittle.
Shampoo hair as needed, depending on how soon the scalp and hair become filthy. Oily hair requires more frequent shampooing than regular or dry hair. Additionally, you should be aware of whether you use soft water or hard water to wash your scalp.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHAMPOO
There are many various types of shampoos available on the market, so it is important to understand the composition and action of the shampoo chosen, as well as whether it will perform an effective job or not. Understand your hair type as well.

Carefully read the label and all the accompanying literature on the bottle before dropping it in the shopping basket. Select a shampoo according to the hair condition.
If your hair has been bleached by the sun, chemically relaxed, permanently waved, used harsh shampoos, improperly neglected improperly, or exposed to the elements, it is not considered normal.
MATERIALS TO USE
Shampoo, a towel, a cape, a set of combs, and a hairbrush
For brushing hair, natural bristle hairbrushes are advised. While nylon bristles are shiny and smooth and are usually advised for hairstyling, natural bristles have numerous microscopic imbrications that clean and add luster to the hair.
You should be able to easily wash your hair with both hands.
Wet the hair thoroughly with warm water, allowing the water to reach the scalp.
Up until the entire head is lathered, apply little amounts of shampoo to the hair and massage each application into a lather. Starting at the front hairline and sweeping across, use the cushions of both hands’ fingers to spread shampoo around the nape region. Working from the front to the rear, massage the shampoo into a lather all over the head.
Utilizing the cushions of your fingers on both hands, begin at the hairline in front of your ears and go back and forth until you reach the top of your head. Continue until you reach the rear of your head.
Repeat until the entire head is coated.
Rotate your thumbs around the hairline.
Repeat the motions until the scalp has been thoroughly massaged.
Squeeze the hair to remove any extra shampoo and froth. Rinse well. Shampoo once more if necessary. Loosen the hair before applying the second shampoo application. You will need less shampoo since it will lather more easily. Rinse well after applying the first shampoo.
- Do not allow the shampoo to enter your eyes.
- If you are susceptible to water in the ears, safeguard your ears.
- Before using the water on your head, check the temperature.
- Do not allow your scalp to be scratched by fingernails.
- Utilize clean or sterile combs and brushes.
CLASSIFICATION OF SHAMPOOS
These shampoos typically have a natural amber color or a greenish or yellow tint and are clear and transparent. They might have a product with a detergent or simply a liquid soap base in them. This sort of shampoo seldom ever contains lanolin or other specialized ingredients that might be utilized to leave the hair glossy.
On virgin hair in good condition, plain shampoo can be used. Never use it to lighten, toned, colored, or damage hair since it will remove the color.
SOAPLESS OIL SHAMPOO
These are manufactured from synthetic detergents containing sulphuric acid-treated oils. The key benefit of such a shampoo is its ability to work in both soft and hard water. They also rinse away readily and do not leave soap scum on the hair.
LIQUID CREAM SHAMPOO
They are often semi-heavy white solutions that are mostly used on dry hair. They have oily ingredients that make hair smooth and silky.
CREAM OR PASTE SHAMPOO
Almost the same as the liquid cream shampoo. With the exception that more detergent or soap is used with less water.
ACID-BALANCED (NON-STRIP) SHAMPOO
These are designed to keep tints and toners from being stripped from the hair. They have a gentle action, conditioners, and a low alkaline content. They are also prescribed for hair that is brittle, dry or damaged.
They are applied to the scalp to treat dandruff. They are created by combining a germicide with regular shampoo. Anti-dandruff shampoo should be chosen based on whether your scalp is dry or oily.
The primary color of henna is reddish or auburn. The shade obtained is determined by the natural colour of the hair, the strength of the henna combination, and the amount of time the mixture is kept in the hair. Henna shampoo brightens darker hair colors rather than changing them.
NOTE: Do not use henna shampoo on blonde, white, or grey hair since it will turn the hair orange.
LIQUID DRY SHAMPOO
Liquid dry shampoos are cosmetic treatments used to cleanse the scalp and hair when sickness prevents the use of a regular wet shampoo. These shampoos contain benzene or gasoline.
POWDER DRY SHAMPOO
When one’s health does not allow for wet shampoo, a powder dry shampoo is prescribed.
