Because shampoo cleans the hair, it lathers like a body wash, washing away excess buildup and oil, while also smelling so good that some people wonder, “Can I use shampoo as a body wash?”
There are different opinions on this topic, some people think it can be done temporarily, some people are against it, Cantik cosmetic will make guidelines for everyone.
Is shampoo the same as a body wash?
In terms of where they are used, shampoo and body wash are completely different, because shampoo washes the hair and body wash washes the skin other than the face. While it’s true that shampoo body wash has many similarities, such as their cleansing action, there’s a reason shampoo and body wash appear as two different products: Body wash is gentler than shampoo because human skin is more gentle than shampoo. Hair is more sensitive.
If the shampoo is used as a body wash, it’s fine if you use it once because you’ve run out of body wash, but if you stick to it, it can dry out your skin.
Some people think they feel cleaner after using shampoo as a body wash because the shampoo creates more lather on the body, and Cantik can tell you that lather doesn’t mean a more thorough cleanse.
But it is undeniable that shampoo and shower gel has similar ingredients and similar functions.
