Hey, thanks for posting the news link- there are so many myths around about balding it's hard to tell what's true.

One thing in the article confused me: "No need to forgo the products—they don't cause balding, and neither does shampoo, washing your hair frequently, or dandruff." I had always read that sulfates like sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate were scientifically shown to cause hair loss, and they are in most shampoos. Can anyone clear this up?
