Organic shampoos lather less and that's normal!
Consumers often raise the fact that an organic shampoo lathers less than a conventional shampoo. Does he really wash? The explanation is simple
The first remark noted during the use of a natural shampoo is a certain disappointment on the fact that it lathers little, see not at all, during the application. We have known shampoo for several generations and we often identify it with the fact that a shampoo should lather. Our habits need to be changed for ecological benefits.
Why the classic foam shampoo?
In the formula of a classic shampoo, we find surfactants. It is he who lathers or does not shampoo: What is a surfactant?
A surfactant is a detergent or "washing base" which lowers the tension of water and facilitates the penetration of a fatty body. With rinsing, the water therefore removes the "grease" from your hair. The best known surfactants are sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium lauryl sulfates, these chemical active ingredients are often criticized.
They have a high detergent potential but tend to remove the scalp from its thin layer of natural oil. Your scalp therefore becomes more sensitive and sometimes irritated.
The solution is therefore organic or natural shampoo but which unlike classic shampoo lathers much less. Indeed, organic shampoos do not use surfactants from the sulphate family but natural derivatives based on coconut oil, babssu or others according to the chosen formulas. These formulas thicken the shampoo but do not have the foaming capacity as high as chemical sulfates. In conclusion, it is not the foam that washes your scalp and makes it more effective. The natural shampoo lathers less but does not detract from the effectiveness. These are just new habits to take for the benefits of your scalp and for a more ecological approach.
