Somewhat related: Did you know Sodium Hydroxide---as in, drain-cleaner---is one of the main ingredients for balancing medications to the perfect-PH of acidity, to prevent burning when applied? Lots of shampoos, as well.Figured it out yet? Ironic that the very-same ingredient has been used---still is---for generations past as "Grandmas' LYE-Soap".But then, even Grandma would tell you NOT to wash your FACE with it. Well, that is, unless you used a sack-cloth rag.☺
I had two uncles who swore by my grandma's homemade lye soap for 'shampoo'. both as bald as the day is long....
Hmm. Grandma went a bit-heavy on the "lye-side", eh?☺But, BOY I'll bet those haids were tough as tanned-leather...!!!
