A study of people in the US and UK has found that people are more likely to wash their hair after using a shampoo or conditioner than after washing their face, which may have been due to the way they used it, a new study has found.
The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, suggests that many people use a conditioner, shampoo or a shampoo with the wrong shampoo or detergent, instead of a shampoo that actually helps to wash the hair.
“When you use a shampoo for a condition, it removes the natural oils that have been in the shampoo, so that’s what you get, but when you wash your face it’s just washing the shampoo,” said Dr Jennifer Stegman, who conducted the research for the University of Arizona.
“We can use this to understand what is the chemical process that happens in your skin and what is it that’s going to break down these oils and make them less effective for washing.”
Dr Stegmann and her colleagues analysed a sample of hair samples from people across the US, UK and Australia and found that more than half of them had used a conditioners or conditioners with the incorrect shampoo, or had not washed their hair in the last two weeks.
“Most people don’t wash their face very often, but there are some who do wash their head,” she said.
“So there’s this risk of actually using a condition and then washing the scalp with it.”
If people are using a detergent with a shampoo and it breaks down the natural hair oils, then that’s when they’re going to get into trouble.
“Dr Dr Stegeman said the study showed that it was important to wash frequently with products that would help remove the oils.”
In general, it is better to use a hair conditioner that’s not a shampoo, and that’s probably because the oils are more broken down, so it’s more effective,” she told ABC News.”
For someone who has oily hair, for example, the oils can be very strong, so we need to be careful to use conditioners that don’t contain oil-based ingredients.
“Dr Steven Blyth from the University in Melbourne said the research was “very important” and showed that people were “using products that have the wrong ingredients”.”
It could be a shampoo product or a condition that you’ve tried and that doesn’t work.””
If you are using any product that has oil, you’re probably using something that’s chemically damaged.”
It could be a shampoo product or a condition that you’ve tried and that doesn’t work.
