we just use our bar soap. I make it. i would go to the MMS site www.thesage.com/recipes/recipes.php I dont really care for coconut oil too much. its too drying on the scalp. You have to use some for a light fluffy lather, but there are so many oils out there. If you dont like a bar, shred it and put in water. it works great also. I find that REAL soap, strips alot of the oils and CRAP out of our hair and can change the natural PH of your hair. a good way to avoid this is to use a nice infused apple cider vinegar rinse after the shampoos. dilute it down with water. this will help to bring the hair back to normal PH preventing drying. do not use for 2-3 weeks after color treatment. this site has recipes, as well as descriptions of the ingredients. Then when you think you have what you want. go to the MMS Lye Calculator. add in the number of OUNCES of each ingredient. When done, you will receive a total amount of water, or milk as well as fragrance, and most importantly LYE. I have used it for years to make my own custom soaps. just have fun.

If you use just baking soda water, you are in essence making soap on your head. The BS saponifies the oil in your hair...just soak your head and let it sit for a minute. Then rinse with diluted vinegar. -Jenn

Our family has been without shampoo for many months now. At first we were using coconut oil mixed with baking soda. Now we see, all our hair really needs is a nice hot water massage and rinse. I've quit putting anything in my hair and it looks and feels just fine.
