5/27/2010 - Shampoo

Anyone else tried this stuff:

Our friend Charlie who's rebuilding a beautiful 38' Alajuela gave us a sample bar a week or so ago. He drives truck for a living and so, spends a lot of time living out of an overnight bag. He said that this "shampoo" is also good as a general soap. It definitely limits the amount of crap you have to haul back and forth to the shower. This matters when you use public facilities and you can't just leave your stuff on the shelf until your next shower.

We gave it a try both as a shampoo and as soap and we like it on both counts. One of the nice things is that it's unscented. Just smells like soap. Kind of like Ivory.

Thank goodness for the internet. When we opened the bar Charlie gave us, I carefully peeled off the label so we could order more if we liked it. However, a mere week later do you think I can find the label? Hell no! But, remembering a few key things like "bar shampoo", "tea tree oil", and "hemp oil", good ol' Google led me right to where I needed to go (Amazon, of course).

I'm partial to Peppermint Castille soap as an all-over when needed. It is scented with peppermint oil so it is fragrant but not in a chemical-gross kind of way.

But Dad! Shampoo comes in so many yummy scents and such. That's why I use it... well and also to keep clean. This stuff does look pretty cool though.

Hmmmm..... I wonder if the hemp in it would trigger a response from a drug sniffing dog? Just a thought but it would be interesting to know. Down south of the border they do board and use dogs. Ken

Livia, I too am partial to Dr. Bronner's peppermint castille soap. But I don't like it for shampoo although I have used it that way. Leaves my hair way too dry.

Ken, I hope the drug dogs don't react to the hemp oil. because if they do and they search the boat and find all those unlabeled bricks of coconut fiber that we use for the composting head, I might have some 'splainin' to do.

Cody, maybe we're just rebelling against all those fruity girly scents we came to know so well.
