Most women struggle with an oily scalp and greasy hair, which acts as a magnet for dirt and other impurities. However, shampooing oily hair daily every day will only worsen the condition and contribute to hair damage. You need something strong yet gentle to clean your scalp and leave your hair feeling lightweight and smelling great. Seems like an impossible task, right? It isn’t. This is where micellar steps in.

Believe it or not, micellar water is more than just a humble makeup cleanser. Micellar technology has become quite popular owing to its amazing cleansing properties. And now, this gentle, game-changing cleanser has found its way into shampoos and conditioners as well. So, let us help you understand how it can transform your hair.

What is micellar technology?

Shampoos that use ‘micellar technology’ make use of mild surfactants (cleansing agents). These cleansing agents possess both oil and water-loving properties that help the molecules in micellar hair products to attach to the oil and other impurities in your hair, making it easier to wash them away. So, you can go ahead and experiment with new hairstyles and styling activities because Micellar shampoos are here to clean your hair and keep them healthy and strong.

Benefits of using shampoo with micellar water

  • Gentle cleansing:

    Micellar shampoos are gentle cleansers. They go easy on your scalp and remove all the impurities without stripping your hair of its natural oils.

  • Protects colour-treated hair:

    If you want to protect the vibrancy of your colour-treated hair and make it last longer, micellar shampoos are a great option. They preserve your hair’s natural texture and colour and give you a shiny and healthy mane.

  • Gives you fresh, feather-light, and free-flowing hair:

    Micellar shampoos clean your hair without weighing it down. The lightweight formula works wonders, especially for fine, flat hair.

How is micellar shampoo different from regular shampoo?

Regular shampoos also offer cleansing and moisturising properties. However, hair products that make use of micellar technology are slightly different from the regular shampoos and conditioners. Micellar shampoos use micelles—formed when the molecules of mild surfactants fuse together— that gently remove dirt and oil from your hair, and leave them hydrated and soft.
