Using Soap for Your Hair Instead of Shampoo.

There was a time when supermarkets or malls didn't exit. People wash their hair with whatever was available. There is the debate about soap versus shampoo. Is it true that soap can be substituted for shampoo?

To answer this question, you need to ask yourself, with what did people use to wash their hairs before the advent of shampoo. Soap has been around for such a long time that people used it to wash virtually everything. Today, it is trendy to use shampoo because we have been made to believe that it is the only way to go. Yes, you can wash your hair with soap instead of shampoo and it is cheaper (frugal living). If you don't have oily hair, you can use a mild soap instead of using shampoo.

Hair conditioner helps to restore hair properties lost through washing or due to other conditions. Whenever you see shampoo, there is a hair conditioner being sold next to it. Should you always use a conditioner after washing my hair?

Most people with oily roots and short hair do not need to use hair conditioner. That is because the body regenerates lost properties destroyed when you wash your hair. If your hair is longer, you can apply hair conditioner about 3cm to 4cm away from the root to the tip of your hair. The best thing to do is, avoid over washing your hair. Instead of always using shampoo, you can wash your hair with plenty of water. This should help keep your hair clean and reduce the need to use hair conditioners (Frugal living: save money as well).

How many people in the world suffer from dry skin? The problem is, there is no single solution to the problem. If you have dry skin, should you wash your body with soap?

No matter what type of skin condition you may have, you still need to wash your body. Using soap is an option but it is not the only thing you can do. Some people have tried just showering using only water. You will have to be in the right frame of mind to keep up with showering using only water. The result will become apparent after a few weeks. If you have dry skin, you can also use soap on strategic parts of your anatomy (feet, genitals and armpits). You can also run a little Vaseline petroleum jelly on your palms before using soap to shower. This will prevent the soap from drying your skin (it does feel weird but it works)
