Ph is everything

Ph level is everything. Your Ph level should be 5 or lower. And to the reason why? Ph over 6 will cause a bacteria growth and cause the hair to slip. Have any other questions give me a call be glad to help @ (918) 989-5465. BG


I'd Go Lower

I think you ought to shoot for around 2.5 with bacteriacide, or under 2 with out it. I think you'll lose a lot of hair at 5


I'd go lower yet

try around 1.8 to start with and let it go up with about 60% salt level. after 2.5 and 2.6 it doesn't pickle as good as it should or hold the pickle as good to shave.
