On first glance you might think, Bruce Mikells has lost his freaking mind, you might be right, but this story is based on the latest scientific findings. Did you ever consider that what you put on your body could have as much of an effect on your health as what you put in your body? That fancy shampoo you are using could be causing you to gain weight.

 Here is what we discovered. The scents and chemicals used in many shampoos may block or retard normal chemical and hormonal responses in the body. In other words your body might think that wonderful fragrance means it’s time to eat. Or maybe the chemical in your conditioner when absorbed through the scalp might tell your brain a famine is looming. So the next time someone comments on your weight tell them it’s not the gravy, it’s the shampoo!
