The Truth About Hair

Whenever I take on a project of creating shampoo and conditioner for a hairdresser, they always start by saying they want different products for different hair types. I tell them they don't need different shampoos and conditioners for different hair types; they only need one shampoo and one conditioner for ALL hair types. Then they think I'm crazy because they're taught in school that they should use shampoos with loads of oils for dry hair, clarifying shampoo for oily hair, and different conditioners for different hair types. Just as the American Medical Association holds a monopoly over so-called 'health care' by having Doctors write medical textbooks that train AMA doctors on what drugs to prescribe for each set of symptoms, the corporations that sell hair care products have jurisdiction over what hairdressers learn. So, it behooves those corporations to teach hairdressers this false information that allows them to sell TONS more shampoo and conditioner.

Here's The Truth...

Hair is hair, period! All hair is made of the same things: protein, vitamins, and minerals. A protein called Keratin makes up 95% of the hair strand. Healthy hair also requires vitamins A, B complex, C, D, E, and the trace minerals: zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, iron sulfate, and selenomethionine.

No one has a different type of hair requiring a different shampoo and conditioner. Having said that, there are differences in people's hair 'strands'. Some are different colors, some are straight, some are differing degrees of curly and dryness, some are oval in shape, and some are round.

Washing your hair has one purpose: to remove scalp oil, sweat, dirt, and styling products from the hair strand and prepare it for the conditioner. That's it! You want the strands to be utterly devoid of all those things.

Another false piece of information out there is that you need a shampoo that "doesn't strip the oil off your hair." News flash: Hair does not secrete ANY oil—the scalp does, and it also sweats. When you brush or comb your hair, you distribute that oil and sweat down the hair shaft, and then the dirt in the air sticks to that scalp oil and sweat. That's how your hair gets 'dirty'.

Most shampoos on the market contain oils and conditioning ingredients that stick to your hair and don't allow the shampoo to clean it properly. So after a while, you have a build-up and need to use a 'clarifying' shampoo to do the job that the shampoo you regularly use should have done. The hair care industry is such a scam, just like the medical/pharmaceutical industry. If the corporations didn't poison us via the air, water, food, household, and personal care products, the medical/pharmaceutical industry would go bankrupt! Their motto should be, if we make them sick, we make money by selling them drugs that make them sicker, so they need more drugs, and we make more money!

Sooo, back to 'one shampoo and one conditioner for ALL hair'. One conditioner to nourish the strands and make them soft, shiny, manageable, and frizz-free. You need to use a product that WILL strip the oil, sweat, dirt, and styling products from your hair...I mean, actually CLEAN it, EVERY time you wash it. You should use a clarifying shampoo ALL the time. When your hair is completely clean, it will squeak. That's how you know it's ready for the conditioner.

The different types of strands—dry, oily, straight, and curly—all need to be cleaned and conditioned. What kind of strands you have determines how much conditioner to leave in your hair after you apply it. For instance, I have oily hair, so I only leave about 10% of the conditioner in my hair. Someone with dry hair could leave in about 25%, and someone with really dry, very curly hair could leave in as much as 50%. People with very dry hair could also dilute the conditioner and spray it on after it's completely dry for extra conditioning.

So that's all everyone needs. I make fantastic shampoo (that actually cleans your hair every time you wash it) and conditioner that you will LOVE!
