~ About Shampoo ~
Shampoo is a hair care product that is used for cleaning hair. The goal of using shampoo is to remove the unwanted build-up without stripping out so much sebum as to make hair unmanageable. Originally, soap and shampoo were very similar products; both containing the same naturally derived surfactants, a type of detergent. Modern shampoo as it is known today was first introduced in the 1930s with Drene, the first shampoo using synthetic surfactants instead of soap. [From Wikipedia]
PLEASE NOTE: Whidbey Island Natural's Organic Shampoo for Healthy Hair is not a detergent, it is a soap; it contains no synthetic surfactants!
