Shampooing How To's And Natural Shampoo Benefits

Updated on February 5, 2016

Sample of Print AD for Shampoo


Use Natural Shampoo Today

You will see on TV and in print that shampooing daily is a must. And then, the advertiser will put a very large picture of a commercialized shampoo that does nothing important for your hair, but just for lather (say it, DETERGENT) and make it smell good. That is how it is.

How about using natural shampoo for a change? A shampoo that will do something for the health of your hair and scalp? I really believe that it is time for us to make wise decisions, spend our money on the right products and gain from it. What do you think?

A Commercial about Shampoo

The marketing strategy is spot on, excellent. These two models are the famous ALDUB duo (they beat Twitter record on most tweets in 24 hours) and of course, those who like them will buy the "not" natural shampoo they are endorsing. Just so they will feel beautiful like Maine Mendoza (the woman in the ad) and they are hoping that their crush will notice them. An escape from reality?

Do I Forego Shampooing?

Many hair experts say that even if you have super dry or unruly hair, you still need to shampoo, but less frequently. It is advisable to clean your hair every 3-4 days, if you have dry hair, and use natural shampoo. The commercialized brand has harmful sulfates that can strip off the hair and scalp’s oil or the sebum. We do not want that. But why?

How to Properly Shampoo your Hair

First Off, How does Shampoo Work?

Focusing on the positive, shampoo can literally clean your hair. Your crowning glory may feel oily and sticky at times, right? The “detergent” or "surfactant" in the shampoo (same content in bath gels and bath washes) binds with the sebum on the hair and scalp and when washed off, the sticky/oiliness goes with it.

But commercialized shampoo, as is with natural shampoo, has a conditioning component. The sebum is stripped off, leaving the hair vulnerable, correct? The conditioning component protects the hair coating from drying elements. Depending upon what type of shampoo , it also has other ingredients to combat hair problems – protection against damage, making it look shinier and of course, the softness factor.


How Many Times do I have to Shampoo in a Week?

Here are some general guidelines:

Dry Hair – Every 3 or 4 days or as needed – when scalp begins to itch, if it smells bad or if there is build up (natural shampoo is advisable)

Oily Hair – Is it super oily? If it is, then, daily shampooing is recommended. If not super oily but with a bit of oiliness, then, 2 to 3 days will suffice.

Are you sweating due to work out and sports? If yes, you need to shampoo daily too. If you are in a dusty or humid environment, shampooing every day is required.

People with thick hair are less likely to have too much oil. If you are one of them, then, you can wash your hair 2 to 3 times a week. If you have thin hair, you can wash daily. If you have dandruff, wash more frequently as well.

Shampoo Hair Gently


Why Go for Natural Shampoo?

Natural shampoo does not contain parabens and sulfates. More beauty companies today are promoting this because of its effect on the hair. The natural ingredients will blend well into your hair follicle and the vitamins/minerals of the organic shampoo will have positive results on your hair.

It will not irritate your hair and scalp. If you have dandruff, the occurrence will be less likely if you are using sulfate free shampoo. Organic shampoo like Argan oil shampoo will moisturize your hair thanks to the oil extracts – it will protect your hair from further damage and aid in repairing your hair too.

Organic Shampoo Here

Here are some of the natural shampoo that I found on the internet. Some are branded and some are not. Some are expensive, some are cheap. The important thing here is that all of these shampoos are organic and safe to use.

You might also consider using a conditioner after shampooing your hair. These two - shampoo and conditioner - go side by side and together. One cannot be without the other. If you want your hair to be healthy, I really believe that these two hair products, organic and natural only, will truly help.
