Chris took all the girls out the other day so I could try soap making. I bought some ingredients from here and used these books. It is curing now so I'll let you know in 6 weeks what it is like.Hair update: It has been about 3 months since I used shampoo or conditioner and I don't think I'll be going back. I went to the hairdresser yesterday and she didn't mention anything was wrong with it which is kind of unusual. In the past people would always suggest products to stop it from being too oily or too dry. I am a bit worried about summer though - has anyone any suggestions about what to do after swimming - at the beach and in chlorine?
