I use J.R. Liggett's simply because it's an old fashion bar shampoo and it was easy to travel with, and highly recommend it.

Thanks for the information. Fortunately, I don't use any of these products either, but will certainly check the ingredients on products I do use.

Well, I have skin cancer on my head and scalp.....

I believe it. I don't really know if mine is from shampoos but I know all have agravated my condition .Even organic ones . But it's so bad that anything aggravates it.

I would not doubt this and the same with deoderants causing issues.

TY for the post. Someone else posted either the same one or it was very close. But get the news out there.

In a pinch, baking soda is your friend! Just mix about a tablespoon with a half cup of water. No harsh chemicals, and your hair comes out sooooo clean!

I got out of my way to really know what's in products for true organics vs. the fake ones. I am always surprised by people that grow their own garden then toxify their bods with this crap and are blase, blase about buying GMOs. Crazy!
