It also occurred to me later that you probably have your electricity from
waterfalls or melting ice or some other clean & renewable resource up

moisturizer after shampoo is totally soluble. Just like the shampoo, it
washes out entirely -- and does make the brushes nice. I haven't had the

occasional moisturizing gives them a big thrill.
