    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Bar soap is not very strong. Try washing your hands with bar soap after working on a car and you'll see what i mean.

    Sebaceous glands are located all over your body, not just on hair.

    The proteins and vitamins in shampoo are pretty much useless. They don't penetrate into the hair or past the layers of dead cells on your scalp. Even if they did somehow penetrate into hair, you have to remember that hair is dead, so there is no way that they could be useful.

    Hair is made beneath the dead layers of skin. I've never heard of a product proven to increase the health of the hair.

    Having said that, from time to time i do enjoy the luxury of nice shampoo and conditioner, if only for the smell, and the cosmetic feel that the conditioner leaves.


    You've got some problems with your argument.

    But it seems like you've been doing research, and I have my own research to do (that actually matters) so I'll just say 1 word and you can get back to me with a rebuttal if you choose:

    surfactants

    haven't really been doing any research. know it from basic chemistry and biology.

    but yeah, i'm pretty sure they are both surfactants.

    Isnt that considered washing it?

    I shampoo with Kiehls herbal shampoo and condition with Kiehls amino acid conditioner. My hair the best its every been, switched from Grocery store 'expensive' brands and couldnt be happier.


    Washing it? Well, according to some people, if you aren't using soap every day, your hair isn't clean, and you aren't washing it, so I'm not so sure [​IMG]

    Once per day minimum. Any less and it gets disgustingly oily.
