Where did shampoo come from?

Where did shampoo come from?

The word shampoo entered the English language from the Indian subcontinent during the colonial era. It dated to 1762 and was derived from Hindi chāmpo (चाँपो [tʃãːpoː]), itself derived from the Sanskrit root chapati (चपति), which meant to press, knead, or soothe.


Shampoo or various forms of hair cleaning products have been used since the 1800s and at that time you were recommended to wash your hair once a month.

In 1927 a German inventor Hans Schwarzkopf created the world’s first-ever liquid soap.

Then in the 1930s, a company based in Ohio called Procter & Gamble launched the first synthetic shampoo.

Since then the market for shampoo has only continued to grow.
