Google “1960s men’s hairstyles.” Now Google “1970s men’s hairstyles.” That change? Shampoo was invented.
In the 1960s you’ve acquired guys trying like Don Draper from “Mad Men”—slicked-again kinds, clear elements, dapper, hair underneath management. In the ’70s it will get larger, fluffier. Everyone begins trying just like the Bee Gees.
The change was due to the rise of an entire trade of at-dwelling styling. “Getting a shampoo” was one thing that required a woman to go to a salon. Even the primary at-dwelling purposes took effort and time. It was a as soon as-a-week factor, rollers within the hair, with girls saying, “I can’t go out, I’m washing my hair that night.”
Suddenly there have been all these merchandise that have been straightforward at dwelling, and males began, too. But no man washed his hair pre-1967, I would guess.
Today virtually all guys wash their hair. And the primary ingredient in shampoo is ammonium laureth sulphate. It’s ground cleaner. That’s why your hair is thick.
Soap is cleaning soap is cleaning soap is cleaning soap. Your ground cleaner is principally the identical as your shampoo. We put ammonia and sulphates on stuff to offer it that “squeaky clean” feeling. And these elements burn your hair.
Sure, this isn’t each shampoo to a T, however most are equal. The first three belongings you see in most bottles are ammonium laureth sulphate, sodium laureth sulfate, and glycerin. The solely distinction in physique wash and so-known as “conditioner” is that glycerin is first. And your hair doesn’t acknowledge glycerin as a moisturizer. It simply feels slippery in your fingers.
