I didn't consider how I would get all that oil out if my hair without soap! I tried baking soda (and apple cider vinegar to condition) which seemed to have helped some, but it's still pretty oily. Any ideas? Also, any great poo-less ideas for shaving legs and armpits? Tried the olive oil for that too and it worked fairly well but I'm wondering what other people do for this. Thanks!

I haven't used them, but apparently they can be used completely unprocessed. Just put them in water and swish them around a few times. They are marketed for laundry, but I think you can use them as an all purpose home and body cleaner.

Now, what I'm finding is that I love how my hair looks in the morning the day after I've washed it, full of body and lovely waves (I have long hair). However, it does look a little unkept. Once I brush it, the body is weighed down, the waves homogenize, etc. I keep thinking, what did Great Gramma do? Do I need to braid it at night? Tie it up with little swatches of rags like Nellie Olsen in Little House on the Prairie? Wear a night cap? I feel like dropping the poo is only part of it.

I have been Poo-less for quite a while now. This includes deodorant. I found a great recipe for a quick mix that makes just over 2 sticks of deodorant. It works as well or better than the store bought brand and for safety, you can just about eat it. I am looking for a good shampoo recipe made from anything other than castile soap. Has anyone got one to share or other things they do for themselves? I'll give you the website for my stuff if you want to try!
