What's the real difference between cheap and expensive salon shampoo?

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Laura Waters comments on how shampoos work, and what the difference is between cheaper and more expensive brands:

"It's the same way that soap or washing-up liquid works, simply stripping the hair of unwanted oils and dirt, ... Other ingredients are there to add colour to the shampoo, provide fragrance, keep the ingredients stable to increase shelf life, help the ingredients stay uniformly mixed and maintain a suitable pH."
