I fell in love with micelles. Not just me because the potential of these tiny particles is also appreciated by cosmetic companies. That’s what micellar shampoos are like – universal, delicate and suitable for every hair type.
Do you want to know how they work? Read today’s post and you will find the answer to every question regarding micellar shampoos!
For many years, it’s been known that a shampoo is just as important as a conditioner or hair oil. For this reason, today we have a really large selection of hair shampoos – anti-dandruff, volumizing, inhibiting hair greasiness, etc.
A micellar shampoo is a newbie on the cosmetic market. Yet, it is interesting enough that I decided to devote a whole post to it.
Micellar shampoo – what is it?
Like any other hair shampoo, micellar shampoo is to be used primarily for hair and scalp cleansing. However, it works much stronger and deeper, at the same time not irritating even very sensitive skin. Thousands of women around the world have fallen in love with the product, all due to its key properties.
- Micellar shampoos are much more delicate, so that people with very sensitive scalp may use them without any problems.
- They work for almost every type of hair, including delicate, easy to overload, thin, problematic.
- Thanks to the use of micelles, these shampoos are much more effective in removing impurities from the hair and scalp.
Micelles – small yet very effective!
What are micelles exactly? We could meet micelles when micellar make-up removers came to the cosmetic market.
Let’s brush up on how micelles work.
They are microscopic balls that are made of water and fat particles. Both of them absorb pollutants by enclosing them inside. After applying the micellar shampoo to the head, the fat particles collect sebum and cosmetics remnants, and water molecules pick up dust and other impurities. This is how micellar water works, and today this property is also used in everyday hair care, where efficiency is of great importance.
How does a micellar shampoo work?
At first glance, if it weren’t for the information placed on the label, a micellar shampoo does not differ from a regular one. It has the same consistency, scent, it lathers well and is easy to rinse out.
The difference can be observed by its action!
A micellar shampoo is a cosmetic worth-recommending because:
- it thoroughly cleanses the hair from dirt (even difficult);
- it leaves the hair weightless, loose and refreshed;
- it does not affect the natural hydro-lipid layer of the scalp;
- it restores the natural pH of the scalp;
- it provides the necessary level of hydration;
- it reduces the risk of irritation after washing;
- it conditions the hair while washing.
Micellar shampoo. These people will fall in love with it!
Who will benefit from it the most? I’d recommend it to everyone because a good shampoo can replace every other hair wash cosmetic. However, there is a group of people who should get a little more interested in it. Who will it be?
- People with thin, delicate and fragile hair.
- The owners of sensitive scalp prone to irritation.
- Those who have allergies to typical washing agents (SLS, SLES).
- Men and women suffering from various scalp diseases, for instance, psoriasis.
How to choose a good micellar shampoo?
Every micellar shampoo is decent, but I’ve found that the extra substances added to the micellar formula really make a difference.
If you decide to purchase a micellar shampoo, take a look at the composition. Check what ingredients it contains because it is vitamins, oils and other ingredients that provide sufficient care. Here’s what you can find in the composition of micellar shampoo.
- Panthenol – moisturizes and brings relief to irritation.
- Allantoin – reduces the scalp’s sensitivity to external factors.
- Aloe extract – moisturizes, regenerates, conditions and refreshes.
- Flax extract – reduces the occurrence of irritation after washing.
- Argan oil – supports hair regeneration and protects it from damage.
- Jojoba oil – ensures proper pH of the scalp.
I am a fan of micellar shampoos which are already a part of my hair care regimen. Let me know if you ever used such a product and whether you were satisfied with it or not!
