Full Answer

Body on Tap was introduced in 1978 by Bristol Meyers and had the unique angle of including beer (denatured Budweiser) in its formula. It is debatable whether the beer actually had any effect on hair, but the shampoo developed a following as it left hair full and feeling very soft. It also had a unique fragrance that smelled nothing like beer. Enthusiasts have created their own DIY recipes, which can be found all over the Internet.

    What is shampoo made of?

    A:

    Shampoos are made of a class of chemicals called surfactants, which have the ability to lower the surface tension of a liquid. These surface-active substances surround oily substances and dirt, which then makes it easier for water to wash them off the surface that needs to be cleaned.
