3. Is it true that the more lather produced when shampooing the more effective the shampoo is and the cleaner the hair?

No, the amount of lather produced has nothing to do with the effectiveness of a shampoo lathering agents are generally added to shampoos because people believe that more lather means cleaner hair and it tells the user where and when to rinse.

4. Is it true that the more shampoo you use the cleaner the hair will be?

No, a small amount of shampoo slightly larger than the size of a small coin and slightly diluted is usually sufficient for all hair at shoulder length that is washed frequently. The amount of shampoo will vary according to the length of the hair and how frequently it is washed.

I never had dandruff until I was 18 years old and got an attack of measles. Now I am 54 and I still suffer from this condition. It has also made my hair a little sparse. My wife thinks I will soon get bald. Sometimes I want to shave off all my hair for a few months and apply oil. Will this prevent my hair fall and prevent me getting bald, anyone has any suggestions for my problem. I have tried number of things only to get temparory relief from the condition.Thanks for help
