What is Shampoo & Condition?

A shampoo is a liquid substance that is used to wash your scalp and hair follicles. Conditioner is a thick creamy substance applied on your hair shaft after you are finished washing it. Shampoo cleanses the dirt, dust, bacteria that resides on your scalp. It also removes the dead skin cells and extra sebum oil.


While shampoo is formulated specifically to clean off sweat, dead skin cells, and hair products, conditioner makes hair softer and easier to manage. It also protects hair shafts from damage. Most shampoos use chemicals that are rough on hair follicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need shampoo and conditioner?

For most people, there is no medical need to shampoo at all, as rinsing with water can remove dirt and dandruff. However, some health conditions can benefit from regular shampooing. People with parasitic infections of the scalp, particularly lice, may need to use special shampoos to get rid of the bugs.

When should we use hair conditioner?

You can use conditioner immediately after shampooing or on its own. The general recommendation is a few times per week, but you can use it daily.

What’s the difference between shampoo and conditioner?

Shampoo is a cleansing agent. It contains ingredients called surfactants and detergents that help remove oil, sweat, dirt, product buildup, and environmental pollutants from your hair. Conditioners, on the other hand, contain natural oils, proteins, and botanical extracts that help keep hair soft, shiny, and smooth.

Is it better to use shampoo or conditioner?

The rules surrounding when to use shampoos and conditioners are refreshingly straightforward: Always use shampoo, condition if your hair is dry, rarely use both. “Shampooing cleans by removing dirt and oil and is formulated to be gentler than regular soap,” says Dr.

Can I wash my hair with conditioner only?

Co-washing (aka conditioner-only washing, aka no-poo) is when you—yup—use only conditioner to rinse your hair and cleanse your scalp. Unless you’re already slathering oils and butters on your hair every day, the idea of massaging conditioner through your roots can sound positively insane.

What does a conditioner do?

Conditioner works to restore moisture to your hair, and not restoring any of that moisture back into your hair can be harmful in the long run. Conditioner softens and detangles hair after the shampooing cleans it. Conditioning your hair somewhat regularly will also make your hair easier to brush through and style.

Does conditioner cause hair loss?

According to dermatologist Dr Aanchal Panth, “hair conditioner does not cause hair fall. It should be applied only on the lower two-third of hair. Make sure you rinse off the conditioner completely.”

Can I use conditioner everyday?

Unlike shampoo, conditioner can be used everyday, as it re-hydrates hair and replenishes nutrients. You might also want to consider conditioning on the days you don’t shampoo (remember, keep that to two or three days a week). It’ll help rinse away grime on the non-shampoo days, and re-hydrate following a shampoo.

What happens if you don’t use conditioner?

“If you stop using conditioner, your hair will likely be more difficult to comb,” warns Romanowski. “It will also be more likely to have flyaways and frizz and be prone to splitting and breaking during your styling routine.” Your hair may look duller and less shiny, he had, so there’s that.

Which is first shampoo or conditioner?

They’ve been taught that you always shampoo and THEN condition. Shampoo comes first – no question asked. But this isn’t always the case. While shampoo often comes before conditioner, it can depend on what type of hair you have.

Should you shampoo and condition everyday?

You may be doing more damage to your hair by washing and conditioning it every day. So, the rule of thumb I suggest is to only shampoo and condition your hair as you feel it needs it. No one else knows your hair as well as you do. On a good hair day, it’s your best friend.

Is all shampoo the same?

This is because all shampoos contain similar ingredients to clean your hair. Known as surfactants, they are the same compounds used in many other cleaning products such as washing-up liquid. These compounds are excellent at removing dirt and grease through their unusual multi-functional nature.

What happens if I only use conditioner?

Co-washing may be gentler on hair, especially hair already prone to breakage. But it will leave a lot of excess product on the hair. Use a clarifying shampoo every 2 weeks to clear the buildup. Co-washing is low risk and worth a try if you’re interested.

Conditioned hair is stronger hair, and stronger hair means less breakage and longer lengths. Put it this way, if you want to encourage healthy hair growth, conditioner should be your best friend, and an unequivocal, never-to-be-missed step in your hair-care regime.
