Short Description : Dove Intense Repair Shampoo
Shampoo in simple terms is a hair care product designed to clean the scalp skin along with its hairs. Incidentally, the term shampoo entered the English language through India where the Hindi word “champoo” was used meaning to press or massage; it was used to denote cleaning through massage of the hair and skin.
Cleaning the hair has always been a tough task especially for women. An average western woman has 4-8 square meters of hair.
This will probably be more for the average Indian women due to culture of keeping long hair. Traditional soaps which were used earlier for both skin and scalp are not recommended anymore for hair cleaning as they don’t have good lathering capability and leave behind “soap scum” when mixed with hard water which is difficult to rinse off. Modern shampoo as it is known today was first introduced in the 1930s with Drene, the first shampoo using synthetic surfactants instead of soap. Used initially for laundry and for cleaning carpets and cars, they later evolved as hair shampoo.
Although conventional shampoos undeniably clean the hair, they are known to cleanse sometimes to the point of eliminating the hair’s and the scalp’s vital natural oils, causing them to dry out, leading to itchiness. Also, those with skin sensitivities or easily irritated skin may find that synthetic shampoos aggravate these conditions. When hair is introduced to the chemical-free ingredients in natural shampoos, although it may feel unlike the way conventional shampoos cause it to feel as the hair continues to hold onto its natural oils, with regular use natural shampoos can help the hair to feel softer and smoother while enhancing its natural luster
