The reason is because what you're describing is an enormous amount of hassle and people just don't want to deal with that much complication, unless they're wearing a tinfoil hat. And if they are they probably have already set up a system that resets itself every time it's rebooted. Just learn to stop worrying and love the cookies.

She's an engineer. She probably doesn't even know what "pH balance" actually means, somebody just told her that "this in hair good, that in hair bad". She's probably never even read a peer-reviewed journal. And she doesn't need to. Of course all this was at some point discovered by scientific researchers, but the research itself was "fun" in the way most kids perceive fun. It was probably hard work, and boring. Science is study, discovery and hard work. Engineering is applying the results of that study.
