Scottish nobleman Basil Cochrane set up a vapour bath providing therapy to his clients, and this is where Dean Mahomet worked. Soon Dean Mahomet added the “shampooing” or the therapeutic massage to Cochrane’s bath a unique practice that would become wildly popular in England. The word “shampoo” came from the Hindi word champo, which meant “to smear, or massage”. Champo itself is said to come from the champa flower used to make fragrant hair oil.
