Everyday Cheapskate: The Costly Mistakes You Make with Your Choice of Shampoo

Mary Hunt on

Come on ... 'fess up. You feel guilty using 99-cent shampoo because it's really bad for your hair. And anybody knows the $24 salon variety is so much better, especially for chemically treated hair, right? Wrong!

I've got the facts to prove it and the truth to counteract lots of myths out there -- plus some great tips to get you on the right path.



Fact: When it comes to selecting the best shampoo, the price has nothing to do with it. Some of the best are super cheap.



Fact: All shampoos are 80 to 90 percent water. The rest is detergent with a few drops of fragrance, additives and preservatives. By the way, "agua" and "eau" mean "water" in Spanish and French, respectively.


Fact: There are basically two kinds of detergent found in shampoo: anionic (harsh) and cationic (gentle).
