Does Shampoo Cause Hair Loss

No, washing your hair with shampoo does not cause hair loss. It should be known that what keeps your hair moist is not oil but water. This makes your hair supple and healthy.

But in most hair situations, that is not the case. We all know shampoo is good but when you go to wash your hair there is always this risk of your hair being dry. A dry hair is painful because it is hard to dry a hair.

Wash your hair everyday

A daily moisturising rinse should be done in the morning and done every morning, if you have very dry hair. If you have normal hair that is not very wet, then you should not have to do any moisturising rinse before you go to shower.

  • Wash your hair before you use shampoo.
  • Use good quality shampoo after washing your hair.
  • Wash your hair after using shampoo and conditioner
  • Soap is a good conditioner for your hair. So the best advice to keep on skin is: wash your hair after shampooing.

Keep away from alcohol

Alcohol has many negative health affects, in particular it may increase your body’s sensitivity to other elements of the environment. Alcohol also acts as an irritant to the skin that helps to trigger the release of other harmful chemicals to your skin. It can also cause the skin to become dry.

Avoid products containing petrolatum

You cannot see the effect of petrolatum on your skin. However, it is also a very effective conditioning agent. In fact the reason petrolatum is often used in lotions is because of it’s cooling effect. This cooling effect causes the skin to feel so silky smooth.


If you do not wash your hair at least every day, it will gradually become dryer, or more likely than not, it will get really dry and brittle because of lack of moisture. So take this seriously.

If you are in a period, don’t use shampoo and conditioner.

Shampooing your hair will not increase the amount of moisture that is lost during the day and it’s best to keep it dry for a longer period. You do have the option of wearing loose fitting clothing. If the situation becomes dire enough and you feel like you won’t be able to take the heat anymore, then you can wear a wind breaker to minimize the risks of your skin heating up.

Washing your hair with an alternative hair product

Washing your hair with an alternative hair product

There are many hair products available out there. If you are looking for a particular product, you can look for a product that does not contain the additives found in harsh conditioners that have the opposite effect on the skin.

For example, most scalp moisturisers or shampoos, conditioners and shampoos will not actually increase the moisture in the hair, rather they will help to reduce the moisture loss caused by your scalp being exposed to harsh chemicals.

The reason why you have to use shampoos and conditioners in place of shampoo and conditioners is that shampoos and conditioners do not actually do any of the things that shampooing does. They do not actually make your hair healthier and this leads to a worse condition on your hair, which makes your hair more susceptible to dryness.

Another example of this is the sun block. If you use a sun block, you won’t actually reduce the amount of damaging effects that it has on your hair. You just mask the UV radiation, which is harmful to the skin.

Washing your hair with alternative products will make your hair healthier and better protected from dryness.

Don’t use the same products everyday

The good thing about using different hair products is that you can create an ever-growing list of hair products that work on your hair that are all different, and effective.

I know that at the moment, I use hair products and conditioners on most of my hair because I believe in them.

There are many products that work well on many types of hair types and it is best to experiment by trying different products.

Here is an infographic that will help you to find hair products that can help your hair (and skin) for different hair types:

Soak a hair wash before use

Wash your hair in a shampoo or conditioner before washing your hair with the same hair wash. Soaking a hair wash before use can significantly reduce the risk of irritation and dryness on your hair and your scalp.

Soak your shampoo first

If your shampoo has not already been washed for several days, use a regular shampoo for about ten minutes. After ten minutes you can then rinse it out with warm water.
