But If you want to use shampoo as soap regularly, then your decision is wrong.

Although shampoo & body soap has almost the same materials and their goal is also nearly the same & that is remove dirt from the skin.

But then again, shampoo has some ingredients like Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) or sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) that body soap or body wash gel hasn’t.

The shampoo is created for a different reason because hair care is more complicated than skincare.

So you’re wrong if you are considering shampoo as soap. Because you may find your skin weirdly.

So don’t try to use shampoo as soap.

So what should you do ( if you want to save extra money)?

Don’t be pathetic, dear.

You may use a natural liquid body gel and use it for both your hair and body but make sure that body gel has not Sodium Laureth sulfate (SLES) or sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
