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.

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.
