Did you know that shampoo is an Indian invention? Shampoo has been commonly used since ancient times.
Back then, the Indians used soapberries and dried Indian gooseberry and would use the extract as shampoo to make their hair shiny, smooth and easier to comb. The actual word shampoo is derived from the Hindi chāmpo. Shampoo was introduced to Europe via travelers and businessmen from India and the term officially became a part of the English language in the early 1700s.
