Everything You Need To Know About Body Washes, Shampoos And Conditioners

Introduction: What is the difference between these body wash products and how can they be used?

Body wash is a solution of water, surfactants, and other ingredients that can be used to cleanse the skin and hair. They can be generally based on a variety of products including shampoo, bath gel or soap depending on their composition. Closely related to soap, they are often dispensed in a large volume via an aerosol pump-style dispenser. However, they are derived from soap and differ primarily in the proportion of surfactant (also called detergents) to water. Soap is an emulsifier and it is used to create an emulsion with oil. The mixture of surfactants, water, fragrances and other additives in body wash allows a significant portion of the product to remain on the skin surface to provide a smooth feel and clean smell.
Body wash products typically use one or more of three types of surfactants (soap substitutes): anionic, cationic or non-ionic. These help remove water-insoluble particles from the skin or hair, and are frequently used in combination.

Body Washes

Body wash can also be a product category, as in the case of The Body Shop, which sells products that are either body washes or shower gels.
But can body wash be used as shampoo?
Body washes are designed to clean your body. Shampoos, on the other hand, are designed for cleaning your hair.
If you want to use a body wash as a shampoo, it will not work very well because the molecules in a body wash are too big and will not be able to penetrate your scalp sufficiently. You should instead use a baby shampoo or milder dish soap if you want to use one of those as an alternative personal care product.
Cut hair, on the other hand, is designed to clean your hair. So a shower gel or shampoo will be fine for this purpose.

Shampoos

Body washes and shampoos are usually not interchangeable for cleaning hair, but if body wash is used as a shampoo it can leave the hair feeling greasy and may cause dandruff. Soaps and detergents, which are found in both kinds of products, can be irritating to the skin.
I am starting this article with the assumption that you do not know much about shampoo. Shampoo is used in washing hair to cleanse the scalp of oil and dirt, strengthens the hair shaft, provides shine and add body. And in some cases it helps remove dandruff or styling products build-up (glue).
Types of Shampoos
There are several types of shampoos available:
1. Conditioning shampoo: This type of product cleanses and moisturizes dry hair and scalp.
2. Clarifying shampoo: This type of shampoo helps remove oils, dirt and styling products that build-up on the scalp and hair.
3. Anti-dandruff shampoo: This type of product reduces dandruff and exfoliates the scalp to treat clogged pores which can cause dandruff. It also contains ingredients that kill fungus which is the cause of dandruff.
4. No-Poo/Sulfate free shampoo: This type of shampoo does not contain sulfates, which are an ingredient that strips the hair and scalp of natural oils. This product is also used to create a soothing lather.
5. Alternative shampoo: There are many alternative shampoos on the market today, with products made from coconut oil, castor oil and olive oil being some of the most popular.

Conditioners

Body washes do not have the same conditioning properties as real shampoo, which contains ingredients to strengthen hair. Some shampoos have been designed to be used on the body instead of the hair, particularly for people who are bald or who shave their heads. A common ingredient in these shampoos is menthol, which is an odorless, pale yellow crystalline compound. Shampoo labeled “dandruff” or “anti-dandruff” will also probably make your hair look shiny and beautiful.

Conclusion: A body wash can be used as a shampoo. It can make your scalp itchy and dandruff will develop. Body wash does not really make hair healthy but just does the job of cleaning the scalp and making it shiny. Some body washes are specially made for the scalp but needs to be used in small quantities. If the scalp is washed with a lot of body washes, it can be damaging.

Body wash or shampoo is a very effective means of removing dirt and grime from the hair and scalp. However, it also strips away the natural oils and moisture from the hair, leaving it dry and brittle. To avoid this, use a shampoo and conditioner which is specifically formulated for hair.
Waterless shower gels are more effective at removing dirt than a traditional shower gel. They contain tiny beads that soak up grease and grime, so you can use them everyday without washing your hair.
