    Guys,

    I know this sounds strange but can you tell me which shampoo would nourish the hair better? One with Egg protein or herbal ones?

    Y'see I dont have an all-in-one shampoo here, I have to apply one for dandruff removal, one for nourishing, and one for conditioning...three in total!

    And I put in shampoo weekly (while bathing of course)...

    I pay a lot off attention to my err...outlook. So on weekdays I take half-hour to bathe and weekends I take about two or three hours (don't laugh please)... :oops:

    Yes, I bathe everyday...and put perfumes...

    <Now y'see I'm somewhat fair and I dont want to lose my complexion so sometimes I also use facial creams--->dont laugh please :oops: )

    And all this is true, no kidding.

    Anyone?

    Best Regards,
    Firecat

    I take a try here Firecat,

    The egg protein typically functions as a additive to improve hair sheen and, depending on formulation details, will sometimes have a volumizing effect. The herbal shampoos contain natural extracts which often function as moisturizers and can also increase hair sheen. Generally, as I recall, no volumizing effect - but this can be accomplished with a styling gel whenever desired.

    If you can't get a multifunction shampoo, I'd go with a herbal variant myself with a conditioning wash somewhere in there.

    For skin care, one of the mild microbead cleaning formulations with added AHA or BHA (alpha or beta hydroxy acid) to clean and exfoliate is usually a good add-on and typically neglected by younger folks. There's lots of these now on the market.

    Thanks Blue. Maybe I'll stick to the Egg protein for now - It gives volumiser effect and I have a separate one for conditioner.

    Others? Hehe..Wonder how long normal people take for such baths?

    As for this,

    Take a shower, it's much quicker. ;)

    I'm in and out in 10 minutes, twice a day. Much more time efficient . :D ;) :D

    I would think just using 1 shampoo would be better than 3. Everyone you use after the first, is just going to wash away the effects of the others. I'm no expert, but I would think it would work that way.

    After all that washing, I wouldn't think there would be enough left to do any good.

    Hi Firecat!!

    First of all, I commend you for caring about your grooming! It's a good thing to start young, it a compliment not only to yourself, but to others.

    You can actually use tooo much product on your hair,it will actually weigh your hair down and make it feel greasy.

    You are so young, I doubt you need all that! Your diet has as much to do with your hair and complexion as all the 'outer' products. More fruits or vegetables, fish or poultry - are you a vegetarian, you might need more protein, like soy.

    Here are some links for young men, they should help!

    (A word to the wise, one thing I notice about young men is they seem to go overboard on the 'perfume' as you call it, just a little goes a long way!! Remember most hair care products also have a perfume, whew!! You don't want a whole bunch of conflicting smells - you don't want to have people smell you coming dozens of feet away!! Good Luck!!)

    Well, with my head spinning around, it makes it extremely easy to apply shampoo. All the spinning motion really makes a good lather too. I don't need a hair dryer either. Just "spin dry". :D

    :) The wildman, having worn a crew cut since the age of five, does not worry to much about the shampoo. I would think that any good mens shampoo would do the job. I use the after shave, an in a small amount, a little goes a long way, you don't need the most expensive brand either. For me neat appearance is the key. The military also taught me to bathe rather quickly.

    Thanks

    Hi Firecat, ;)

    The easiest method for maintaining your hair and scalp, rather than go thru the rigamarole solution you utilize, would be to employ the "military" haircut. :) It will eliminate any need for any of the products you mentioned. You will effortlessly look groomed all the time. The only maintenance required is to keep it trimmed weekly. ;) ..::It looks pretty Sexy as well::.. (maybe the ladies can comment on this) :)

    I also favour Snowbound suggestion for "showers", not only are they quicker, but you don't end up sitting in soiled water, so they are a cleaner solution as well. I'm a ~two a day~ guy as well. ;)

    Now that you saved all this time on this end of grooming, you can utilize the saved time to groom other aspects ... ie. nails, cuticles, nose/ear hair, trim eyebrows, dental hygiene ... etc. etc. ;)

    Steve

    AND.......rolling in the dirt half soaped up and drenched!! :D

    Hey Kaushick,

    A bit of wax here and there every couple of days helps retain healthy hair.

    Also your diet is important to your hair.

    Drinking is out ( when your old enough my friend )

    and smoking is not good for your hair......
    http://www.funny-pet-pictures.com/pictures/squirrels_moles/5.jpg

    Don't forget to twirl your moe ( if you have one )

    If problems persist.......See your doctor.

    Hey kaushik,

    Instead of wasting all that time w/the above suggestion you could just go and get a commercial size potato peeler. Put in a couple scoops of bubble bath, fill it up, jump in, let er rip. It will take care of hair trims (and all other body hair) except for nose and ears (see big bucks post for that). Nails and cuticles will cease to be of concern. See Cochise's post for fleas and ticks or ask Dog for advice.

    Play on, big ed

    If you're really into this sort of thing (trying to figure out the best shampoo for your scalp, not hair), try the following link:

    http://www.aubrey-organics.com/about/articles/healthy11.cfm

    If your hair is damaged by abuse, chemicals, etc., it may be best to cut it short and let it grow back out. One thing you can do for future hair growth is to get your scalp in shape. This is what a good shampoo will do. If done with natural herbs and oils, you'll have the best head of hair on earth (I'm assuming you have hair to grow).
