    When are micelles formed in Shampoo or other cleaning products? 

    a) during making of Shampoo when we mix surfactants with other ingredients.

    b) when we are washing our hair and Shampoo is in contact with soils.

    Micelles are formed when the concentration of the surfactant exceeds the Critical Micelle Concentration
