CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION The first Garnier product was made by Alfred Garnier in 1904, a hair tonic.

. The full company name, Laboratories Garnier, originated in the 1920s as a producer of haircare products made with organic ingredients. ingredients. The LOreal Group has owned Garnier since 1965. Garnier is a worldwide company affiliated with 29 other brands owned by LOreal. As of 2009, Garnier has three product line concentrating on helping consumers with personal appearance. Garnier offers skincare, haircare, hair color and styling products, which are distributed in 16 countries. When looking for a suitable shampoo the most important thing you need to know is the concentration and the harshness of the detergent in it. The problem is there is no way for the average consumer to find that out. Shampoos may contain anything between 1 and 25 percent detergent. It may be exactly the Same detergent, sodium lauryl sulfate based detergents are the most common, but the concentration will vary considerably from brand and even within a manufacturers products range. Cost of the shampoo is rarely an indicator of detergent concentration or quality. cheap detergent. Cheap shampoo may contain a high detergent concentration while expensive shampoos may contain very little of a Cost is mostly about branding and the market the manufacturer is trying to sell the product to some indicators that you might think would be a rough guide to detergent power, such as products labeled for oily hair, in fact bear no relation to the amount of the detergent in them. Shampoos for oily hair can have exactly the same concentration as shampoos for dry hair. The difference is more likely to be a reduced amount of oil or conditioning agent in the shampoo for oily hair, or the difference may even just

continues that mission today, as all of its products are made with natural

be the packaging. The thickness of the shampoo is also not an indicator of detergent concentration. There are many thickening agents that can be used that contribute nothing to actual cleaning action of shampoo. Because the detergent concentration is not on the label, your only practical option is to find the right shampoo, with the right detergent concentration for you, through trail and error. Select a few shampoos you like the sound of and do a home comparison test. You may find you need up to three times the amount of one shampoo compared to another to get the same result. Just pick the one you like the feel at the price you are willing to pay. Do not be swayed on buying a shampoo for the additional ingredients like herbal extracts. Frankly these will not do much, usually the amount of extract in the shampoo is quite low and most of it is washed down the drain anyway. It should be simple to apply, although it is worth nothing that the all in one shampoo and conditioners are usually not as good as a separate shampoo and subsequent conditioner. Although it is more hassle, a separate shampoo and conditioner usually gives better results. The shampoo should cleanse the scalp thoroughly with one application unless you have very oily or dirty hair. Even so, you should not need to wash your hair more than twice. The hair should be left soft, shiny and easy to brush and comb. This quality has much to do with conditioning agents. Most modern shampoos contain them, but you may need a separate conditioner too. The shampoo should rinse away easily and not leave any residue. In a hard water area (water that has a lot of minerals dissolved in it is called hard water) there is a greater chance of residue being left on the hair. An

acid rinse can get rid of this. People often use lemon juice but vinegar can work just as well. Use conditioner after an acid rinse. The shampoo should not be irritating to scalp skin. With the popular fad of including herbal extracts in shampoos so dermatologists have seen an increase in scalp dermatitis complaints. If your shampoo irritates your scalp skin, find one without herbs in it. If that doesnt work, the detergent in the shampoo may be the problem. It so, find a shampoo with a different detergent in it. Some common shampoo detergent like sodium laurel sulfate, can be irritation to sensitive skin. Finally, the shampoo must satisfy your tastes in color, perfume, texture and later. None of these are really necessary for thorough cleansing and it is all down to personal preference. Not even lather is necessary, you can clean hair just fine without any bubbles. We have been conditioned to believe a good lather is important for good cleaning, but this is actually not true. Many shampoos contain specific ingredients that make lather, but they do not actually contribute to the cleaning process. SOAP VERSUS DETERGENT SHAMPOOS Detergent based shampoos are by far the most common shampoo in the supermarket today. Detergent shampoos are a relatively recent development only really becoming widely available from the 1950s onwards and it took 20 years for detergent shampoos to become the dominant shampoo product. Before this time soap based shampoos were prevalent. Soap shampoos are made from organic sources, most frequently from coconut oil and less commonly from olive oil or palm oil. Detergents are synthetic cleaning agents made by a chemical reaction. Detergents do a better cleaning job and less likely to react with minerals and salts in the water supply compared to soap based shampoos. However, soap shampoos are making a limited comeback as some
3

people want to go the organic route. There is no real problem with using a soap shampoo except that if you live in a hard water area you may find a scum builds up on the hair making it look dull and dry. An organic acid rinse can get rid of this. WATERLESS SHAMPOOS When an individual is an invalid and bed ridden waterless shampoos can be very useful. The shampoos are usually a combination of an absorbent They usually come packaged as a powdered substance and a mile alkali.

straight powder, but sometimes you can get them in foam or spray formulation. Either way, the principle of application is the same. The powder is applied to the hair and this absorbs oils (sucks the oil inside the powdered particles) and adsorbs dirt (dirt binds to the surface of the powdered particles). The powder is then brushed or toweled away. These waterless shampoos work quite well, but they are not as effective compared to water and detergent shampoos. For really dirty hair, the powder less shampoos may need to be reapplied several times before getting reasonably clean hair. Some people who like to go completely organic prefer to make their own powderless shampoos. You can use powdered corn starch as a dry shampoo with a reasonable level of success. Indigenous people may use chalk powder or camp fire ash as a waterless shampoo. SHAMPOOS AND PH A few television commercials have made claims that their shampoos have an acidic pH and this is superior to other shampoos. comments on pH and shampoos. First just to review what pH means. Water molecules (H 2O) occasionally break apart into H+ and OH- (and H+ and OH- will join back together to form H2O). Things dissolved in water can release to take up either H+ or OH-, thus
4

So here are a few

changing the ratio of H+ and OH- in the water. An acidic solution (pH < 7) has more H+ than OH- and a basic or alkaline solution (pH > 7) has more OH- than H+. A neutral pH is pH 7. Hair is made from keratins. Keratin is a protein, and proteins and chains of amino acids. Different types of protein contain different amino acids, linked together in a different order. Keratin happens to contain lots of the amino acid cysteine, which contains a sulfur atom. The sulfur atoms from two cysteines join together, forming a disulfide bond. These disulfide bonds give hair fiber its strength. However, OH- can split disulfide bonds, thereby removing crosslinks between keratin molecules and weakening the hair. H+ does not disrupt disulfide bonds. As such, alkali solutions can waken hair and strong alkali solutions will actually dissolve it. In contrast, acid solutions do not interact with disulfide bonds. Most shampoos are somewhat acidic. Shampoos typically have a pH of 4-6 some go as low as pH 3. These are usually strong shampoos for heavy duty cleaning. If your water supply contains a lot of lime and other minerals dissolved in it, your pH is most likely to be neutral to slightly alkali. The alkalinity of the water is not enough to significantly weaken the hair but alkali solutions can make the hair cuticle open up. The outer hair cuticle is made up of overlapping, flattened, dead cells like tiles. These tiles can flake up and expose the underlying, softer cortex of the hair fiber which is more prone to damage by environmental chemicals. The shampoo acidity can help with closing the cuticle of the hair. In addition, slight acidity help to break up soap scum and wash it away. So in general, an acid pH shampoo is good for maintaining the hair structure and it can neutralize adverse alkali action on the hair. CHAPTER II GARNIER SHAMPOO
