    I'm almost 2 weeks poo-less, and my hair is lovely. Never dreamed I could not use shampoo! Like Shiggles, my hair is just so easy to do stuff with. Looking back, it really is all rather absurd, isn't it? Use detergent to strip everything away, replace it (sort of) with conditioner and styling products. Nuts!!

    We make our own shampoo

    check out www.inuksuk.be

    STINGING NETTLES , NATURAL SHAMPOO WITHOUT HARSH CHEMICALS
    Nettle shoots, help to clean the body of toxins. They are used to treat inflammation of the urinary tract and kidney gravel.
    Lectins present in stinging nettle appear to stimulate the immune system.
    They also have an important cosmetic value! Used externally, the stinging nettle is a great hear tonic and growth stimulant and may even bring back the natural color of the hair.
    Inspired by our “Call of the Wild”, we now make our own Stinging Nettle shampoo! It’s fun, healthy, inexpensive, and …. without all the harsh chemicals!

    I use the Dr. Bronners soap for everything - hair, body, shaving. I can't imagine shaving w/o anything...no way! My legs don't get quite as smooth with soap as they do with commercial shaving cream, but they're good enough. DH isn't complaining...

    Me too. Love Dr. Bronners and the peppermint version was very refreshing during the summer. Also like the TACT Olive Oil soap too. I sometimes use Kiss My Face or Burt's Bees shampoos.

    I've been following these threads on no shampoo or soap and still don't think it would work for me. My skin is naturally oily (which is a good thing esp. in the no wrinkles department) and just rinsing my hair out with water just isn't going to work. And my skin feels better after using the olive oil or coconut oil/castile soaps than with plain water (and we have soft water here too).

    Have you tried going without? Anybody who uses soap and shampoo is going to build up excess oil if they don't wash with it for a couple days. I was the same way; my hair was waxy and clumped when I first started skipping shampoo. It evens out when your scalp and skin realize they don't have to produce so much extra oil.

    This whole concept, more than any other part of primal living, scares me the most. I can work up a STINK (I went 45 days with no shower at all in Iraq in '03) and I'd be worried that I'd have a 30 foot radius to myself based on the smell alone.

    I tried no-poo for a few months. At first I felt scuzzy, then my scalp adjusted and my hair looked and felt fantastic. After that I got a HORRIBLE outbreak of seborrhea dermatitis - which I had as a teenager, but hadn't had any in years. Six months later, it is still not completely under control - although it is getting better.

    I wasn't primal at the time, so maybe that would have helped.
