So far, I have been doig no shampoo or soap for I think two years (maybe going on three, I don't quite remember), but my results have been similar to as in the podcast. My hair is a little oily, but it's just right. To people who have been around me, and in particular people whom I have been on romantic dates with, I have been described as "the most human smelling person" they have been around. They have not described it as bad or good, but just that I smell "human". I don't smell like I have been modified by anything. Now for people who have extremely sensitive noses, like dogs, I have been told I have a slightly sweet fruity aroma, which these particular people say is the smell f my pheromones.
