What Are The Benefits Of Using Micellar Shampoo?

If there's one thing you can rely on the beauty industry for, it's that just when you begin to hop onto a trend, a new one will go viral. You'll constantly be told that this new powerhouse ingredient is something you need, or that the last ingredient they said you need is actually now over. It can be pretty overwhelming, and often confusing. Sometimes, however, trends manage to stick around over the years.

While everyone spent years scrubbing away at their skin with makeup remover wipes, micellar water suddenly dropped and changed the makeup removal game. This simple water somehow worked miracles and would clear out any ounce of makeup. What started as a viral product by Garnier has now escalated into countless brands creating their own take on the product at varying price ranges (via Allure). It is indeed a gentler and easier method and to this day, people swear by their micellar water. Well, what if you found out that micellar isn't only for your face? Enter, micellar shampoos.

Micellar shampoo is a savior for product buildup

It isn't the first time that a buzzworthy ingredient has made its way over to other beauty areas. Micellar water has made its way into the haircare market, and if you have oily hair or struggle with product buildup, it may just be your new holy grail.

When it comes to shampoo, micellar water actually works in a similar way. Senior Stylist at Neville Hair & Beauty, Cristina Pignatta, explained to Glamour that, "Micellar is a combination of surfactant molecules. They love the oil and water, which means when it is rinsed out, they are washed away leaving the hair cleaner than it has ever been."

Micellar shampoos work to deeply cleanse your hair in a way regular shampoos can't. Their lightweight formula feels gentle on your hair, but the gentle formula works to remove any build-up without stripping your hair of its natural moisture. The same way it does for your face, micellar water in shampoo gently removes any dirt and oil from your roots and leaves it feeling refreshed while still hydrated (via Coveteur).
