Innocent search for shampoo info turns up possible debilitating ingredient


So the wife (who knows me as her internet sleuth, of sorts) asks me to google up a scientific study on the Web. She was hoping to end the office disagreement over whether the drug store brand of hair care products we use is better than the salon products favored by her co-worker.

I warned her ahead of time “there will probably be a bunch of anecdotal testimonials and not much more”. I was right but, I was also not thrilled by the health alert on one ingredient (methylchloroisothiazolinone) that is in a lot more than our Suave® shampoo and Gojo® soap.

Looks like we should squabble less over the brand than some of the ingredients.
I’d be real interested in any further studies.
