    used to use doctor bronners but it has glycerin and that may block the sun. Would like to use nothing but that gets GREASY

    I use Ghassoul mud since many many years for my hair and also you can use it as soap, for washing your face etc.. It is awesome :) :)

    I’m also in the process of transitioning back to no-poo. I was just about there a few years ago but fell off the wagon during a period of scalp issues where I had to treat with oils and then “needed” shampoo to get it out. For some stupid reason I’ve never tried the mud method but I think I’m up for it this time! Haven’t searched the best supplier yet.

    OMG my Hair!

    Hmmm—Just three ingredients. I’ve seen this before but never tried it so might test it for the transition. Thanks!

    Ingredients: Saponified olive oil, water and sodium chloride.

    (Wonder if the saponification process does something we are trying to avoid here? Or is the thin film of residue that remains an issue? I’m only cold showering every other day before bed at the moment. I admit I still need to watch Vermont 2018 about the skin—perhaps the answer is there... all these awesome webinars to get through... :glasses:)

    Why do you need it?

    The thought came to me not so long ago to give up shampoo. Something popped into my head, and I decided to try it. I read that it is harmful, that just water will cope and the like. However, the water didn't work. I tried to make the transition for about a month, but my dandruff became very aggravated. I could not comb my hair. It was a real nightmare. I hope that the transition will happen and that everything will go well. This, of course, did not happen, and I had to urgently save my hair. On the advice of a friend, I bought GOLD LUST SHAMPOO and washed my hair with it all week. My hair quickly returned to normal. I won't do any more experiments like this. It's horrible.

    Water only is amazing! However, I do still occasionally need a wash if I let things go too long with water only, but that's like once every month or two. There's a great no poo group on FB that has fantastic information in their files. I will say, water only didn't work before we got a whole house filtration and (potassium based) softener system.

    I've also had success with baking soda and apple cider vinegar rinses and using soap nuts. It's quite the experimental process, but well worth it!

    soap nuts?

    so you just wash with water and then rinse with A/C vinegar?

    In my case;
    not the vinegar straight from the bottle.
    Instead, just add little vinegar to the container with the last rinsing water.

    Yes, you can cook soap nuts to make a solution to use to wash your hair. You can even use them for laundry. I would highly recommend reading the files in that group to learn more. It's fascinating!

    Right now, I just manually rub my hair and scalp with my fingertips for a few minutes under running water to physically remove the excess oil without stripping.
