Have you ever had a patch or area in your scalp that itches like crazy? One moment it feels extremely dry, the next minute it's raw and you think it might actually be bleeding. Next thing you know, it fills as if there are pins and needles jabbing at your scalp. What's going on?
We've been receiving a lot of questions from the naaniFAM about which shampoo variety they should select. Choosing a shampoo is mainly a decision based on personal preference as most of us go for aroma rather than content.
Generally, shampoos are 80-90% water and contain 2-8% detergents and foaming agents and about 1% fragrance and preservatives. Based on these numbers alone it's not easy to choose a good shampoo from a bad one. In the end, it often comes down to personal preferences such as fragrance and foaming ability.
