In 1986, the term “morning shampoo” was introduced, and the term has since taken root in our lives. At that time, morning shampooing was something that young people did, but these days it seems that not only young people, but everyone, men and women of all ages, are doing it. This is probably because people today are more concerned than necessary about cleanliness and are overly sensitive to dandruff and hair odor.
The scalp breathes, too.
It is true that unclean scalp makes it easier for bacteria to grow. The scalp, like the skin, breathes through the pores, so if sebum and dandruff accumulate in the pores and cause bacteria to grow, it becomes difficult for the scalp to breathe, which can lead to hair loss. In this sense, it is good to keep the scalp clean.
Be careful not to rinse out!
Shampooing cleans the hair and scalp, so shampooing in the morning or at night is a good thing in itself. However, this is based on the premise that rinsing is sufficient. Many shampoo ingredients contain synthetic petroleum surfactants, which, if left on the scalp, can penetrate the skin and damage hair follicles, increasing the risk of inducing hair loss.
Be careful when shampooing in the morning.
The reason why people say “morning shampooing is bad for hair” is because many people generally do not have time in the morning and may not rinse their hair enough. This is especially true for those who shampoo with clothes on at the washstand and for those who have long hair and need to rinse their hair carefully.
In the olden days, ordinary households washed their hair with soap. If you went to a public bathhouse, many people rubbed soap on their heads. Soap, which is made primarily from natural ingredients such as animal or vegetable fats and oils, is less harsh on the scalp, which I imagine is one reason why hair loss at a young age was not as common as it is today. However, they are inferior to shampoo products in terms of fashionability, because they are dry and do not feel good after washing with soap…
