    Shampoo Alternative

    I read some threads on the subject, but nothing quite as conclusive. What alternatives to shampoo do you use? Do you think a coconut soap / organic olive oil would be a good alternative (especially to prevent hair loss)? Lately I have been using baby shampoo and rinsing with vinegar and salt.

    Estrogen, Not Androgens, May Be The Cause Of Baldness

    A quick post about a study calling into question yet another dogma in medicine - i.e. that the "evil" androgens (especially DHT) are the causes of men losing their hair and getting prostate cancer.
