What's the fuss around goat milk shampoo, anyway?

The world of personal care is constantly evolving. Every other day you get to hear about a new ingredient that has a million different benefits and is said to certainly change your life. Remember when onion hair oil and onion shampoo was ‘The Big Thing’? I don’t know about you but I had at least 5 different people in my life telling me how onions are the best thing for your hair and how they swear by it. 

They were not lying. Onion hair oil and shampoo worked really well for most people, including yours truly. What is really fascinating is that onions seem to have lost their popularity. We have a new (well not really ‘new’) bad boy in town.

Move aside onions, goat milk is here. 

Goat milk is generally good for your body. It is lower in lactose and much easier to digest than cow’s milk. According to some studies, goat milk can even increase the chances for your body to absorb nutrients from other foods. Oh and it has a higher presence of “prebiotic” carbohydrates, which basically results in a healthier and happier gut. 

To put it simply, science approves of goat milk. But does it have any effect on hair growth? Let’s discuss.

Is goat milk good for hair growth?

Firstly, it is naturally rich in vitamins that are especially good for hair and skin. Rumour has it that Cleopatra used to bathe in goat milk? (We have not fact-checked this so don’t come after us.) 

The presence of biotins like vitamin b7 may lead to lesser hair fall. The protein-rich goat milk is great for stimulating hair growth. If you covet shiny, commercial ready luscious hair, make goat milk your best friend, ASAP. 

While it really depends on your hair type and it reacts to certain ingredients (there is no single hat that fits all heads), goat milk is one of the safer ingredients you can afford to give a chance. 

While you can directly apply goat milk to your hair, mixing it with shampoo will add to its effectiveness. But let’s be real, who has time to do that every time they have to shampoo your hair?

Enter goat milk shampoo, the next best (and way more convenient) thing. 

Ok but what does a goat milk shampoo do?

Some of the benefits of using goat milk shampoo are :

Say hello to a healthy scalp 

Dealing with dandruff is one of the worst experiences, amirite? Once it makes your scalp its home there is no going back. No matter how much you try it just does not budge. An excellent source of Vitamin A, goat milk is great for anyone suffering from dry, flaky, dandruff-prone scalp. It maintains your ph level and its antibacterial agents fight the dandruff away. Organic goat milk shampoo can be a great way to deal with dry scalp. 

Smooth and shiny hair 

The thick texture of goat milk makes it a natural conditioner for your hair. Organic goat milk shampoo helps you keep your hair moisturized and frizz-free. If you have hair that gets easily tangled then you need to give this a try. 

Mild in nature 

Organic goat milk shampoo is mild in nature, which means that it contains no harmful chemicals and is less likely to damage your hair even if/when you use it daily. It provides a good lather without the help of chemicals and leaves your hair feeling fresh and clean. Oh and it will protect your precious curls.
