There was an incident on one of the other hair boards where I lurk. Some young punk kid(s) kept suggesting all of these outrageous homemade hair treatments like spray deodorant and floor wax saying it made their hair shinier, thicker or longer in a short amount of time. Some things were obviously bogus but there were a few fake treatments that some of the members tried. One woman said she got bad breakage from one of the treatments recommended for dandruff. That is when the person(s) confessed that all of the claims were fake. I don't know why someone would do such a thing but I just wanted to warn people that there is another kind of troll out there. They were lucky that at least this person confessed (even if only to make fun of us). Some people will drop their bogus claim and walk away leaving you to try it and not know what went wrong. Remember the lysol and mouthwash thing from BHC? There are devious people out there who have nothing better to do than to make fun of others. I know we are all intelligent enough to not be duped into anything obviously bogus but sometimes the bogus claims are not so obvious. I have seen some here that I don't think are too kosher but sometimes it is hard to tell. I just want everyone to be wary of advice and do their homework. If it sounds too good to be true and there is no scientific evidence supporting whatever claim, then leave it alone. It's not worth it. There are no quick fixes. Okay I am climbing off of my soapbox now.
