HAIR HISTORY - History Of Shampoo

The word "shampoo" comes from the Hindu word champo which means "to massage" or "to knead". The first successful retail shampoo was developed by John Breck in the 1930s. He was the first manufacturer to present the public with a shampoo line for dry and oily hair. His advertisements featuring the "Breck Girl" became very popular, and many famous Hollywood starlets posed for his ads. It wasn't until the 1970s that much gentler PH-balanced shampoos entered the market. Today, the consumer has literally hundreds of shampoos, mousses, gels and conditioners from which to choose.
