What’s new in the world of shampoo?
By JOSH HANDLEY, APWASHINGTON — When the water is hot, people use more shampoo than they would if it were cold.
But scientists say the warmest places are also the ones that have the most shampoo.
That makes shampooing a useful tool to combat the rising health risks from pollution, according to a study published Monday in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
Shampooing is used to cool water by filtering it, and when the water’s at the right temperature, a few drops of water can remove 99 percent of bacteria from a body, said researcher Daniela Hildebrand of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
Shower curtains can also be used to keep the air from getting hot, especially in warmer climates.
But in warmer weather, shower curtains are not a good solution because they cool the air, and in a warmer climate, the shower curtains will also cool the water in the shower.
So to prevent that from happening, scientists have created a special shampoo to filter the water that comes in contact with the shower curtain.
“Shower curtains have been used for thousands of years, but it’s the first time that shampoo has been developed that does that, and it’s not even a synthetic one,” said Hildebrands co-author Joanna Jonsson.
In fact, the new shampoo is made from the bark of a shrub called pyriflora and is not made from synthetic chemicals.
“So this is a novel way of working, and we’ve applied it in different climates and it has proven to work.”
The study looked at the shampoo effectiveness in three locations in Sweden.
The first location was in central Stockholm, where the average shower curtain is made of wood, which has a low permeability.
Showers in this area had a much lower amount of bacteria, which means less shampoo.
The second location was a small village in the southern part of Sweden.
People in this village used a special kind of shampoo called raschik, which is made up of bacteria and sugar.
Raspik is made out of the pulp of a tree bark, and this makes it more water-soluble than regular shampoo.
Rascik is the only shampoo in this shampoo that was effective against all the strains of bacteria in the environment, which can affect health.
The third location was the town of Gotthard in northern Sweden, where it is a bit warmer, so the shampoo was tested in colder weather.
It was effective in the warmer areas, but not in colder regions.
The researchers said it may be a good idea to add this shampoo to shower curtains when it’s hot, and that the water will be more efficient in getting rid of the bacteria.
