Yeah nothing there is really news to me really. The fact is normal soaps (Castile) are high in pH and they leave a lot of mineral deposits behind. The lower pH rinses strip all of that away. So whether it is the high pH creating the cuticle to open up, or it is just mineral deposits being present, I couldn't say, but I will say hair texture makes a huge difference depending on the products pH that you use.
Yes their pump soap. PH of 9. You just contradicted your self though. pH has a pretty big influence.
Forgot this gem:
That can make a huge difference in shoes.
