a quickie update on my state of cleanliness. I'm using soap, but not on my face. I use a warm wash clothe and no moisturizer. I've noticed that my skin no longer has oily or dry patches. I used moisturizer one night and woke up super greasy.
Also, my hair...looks great! According to close sources, it also smells good, just not perfumed. No itching. No dandruff.
