I’m a big fan of shampoo, but there’s a problem.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m in a shampoo tub, I get a little bit uncomfortable.
If you’ve been shampooing your face for years, you’ve probably heard that shampoo is a “hard water” shampoo.
The hard water comes out in the shower, but is only thickening the hair.
What’s the deal with hard water?
Hard water is a product that has been treated with a chemical called hydrogen peroxide, which has a strong tendency to make the water feel greasy and can also cause irritation.
So, when it comes to shampoo, you have to pay extra attention.
If it’s a thickening shampoo like Amika or Ultra Soft Shampoo, you’re in for a bad day.
How thick is it?
When shampoo is thickening, it can feel like it’s being applied too hard.
That’s because the chemicals in a thickener make the shampoo stick to the skin, which is why thickening hair products are a good idea.
Is it bad for the skin?
It may help if you’re trying to moisturize your skin, but if you’ve got sensitive skin, a thickened shampoo can make your skin feel dry and irritated.
Do you need a thick shampoo?
Yes, but you shouldn’t be trying to apply a thickner like Amikas Ultra Soft when it’s too thick.
Thickness is a good way to avoid clogging pores and making your skin look greasy.
If your hair isn’t thick enough to be treated with the chemical, you may want to add a thicker product like Amiko or Ultra Shampoo to the mix.
Does a thick product make my hair greasy?
I know, right?
Thickening hair is often touted as a great way to get your hair to stay in place.
But if you find it’s getting in the way of your natural hair movement, you should talk to your doctor.
