Jun. 10, 2021

The hotel shampoo expires just before it is used up. There is no need to waste expired shampoo, and I am afraid of problems if I use it. Can I still use expired shampoo? 

Whether you can use shampoo after the shelf life has expired depends mainly on its type. Some shampoos that contain sulfur or preservatives can be used for a period of time after the shelf life. If the shampoo has expired for more than three months, it is not recommended to use it.

One ingredient commonly used in shampoos is water, and another is surfactants. There are also some acidic ingredients, and some hair care and shampooing ingredients. After a long time, its active ingredients will become worse and its cleaning ability is poorer.
