The word shampoo entered the English language from India during the colonial era. It dates to 1762, and is derived from Hindi chāmpo (चाँपो [tʃãːpoː]), itself derived from the Sanskrit root chapayati (चपयति, which means to press, knead, soothe). Sake Dean Mahomed is identified as an early promoter of the practice in Britain.
