That's true with some detergents - they rinse completely away after they strip the skin of all natural oils. Other detergents that don't strip the skin quite so badly also don't rinse away as cleanly leaving their residue behind to cause dry itchy skin. Funny thing is my husband thought he had horrible dandruff, he'd beg me to buy this dandruff shampoo or that dandruff shampoo. I'd try and try and try to get him to use hair soap and he wouldn't. But he started getting curious when we started having huge amounts of repeat customers for our hair soaps and so many people commenting on how much the hair soap helped their itch or dandruff, or dryness or flakiness or whatever.

Since he makes soap right along with me he's learned a great deal about detergents and real soap etc so he also learned what detergents are better etc. We went to his parents for a few days for Christmas and he forgot his shampoo and didn't want to use his mom's Suave, so he grabbed my hair soap. He was first amazed at how soft his hair was, then realized after 3 days of washing with only hair soap his itchies were more at bay, and after a week realized his flakes were much less, now 2 months later he's thrilled with no flakes and will not go back to "shampoo".

hahaha he's almost like a little kid with a new toy - he thinks it's sooooo cool! But we are both very amazed at how nice the hair soap makes our hair and scalp - before I started using them on my hair I had no clue just how bad the detergents were for our scalp. Granted we saw a marked improvement in our skin since we switched totally to real soap versus detergent, but had no idea it would be so different on the scalp.

Now I just need to be brave and try my hand at liquid soap. My MIL likes our soap but much prefers liquid soap, she's waiting impatiently for us to start making liquid.

spidermom, I knew that about detergents....from the mid 70s Zest soap ads.
(no shower scum)
they way over clean my hair, so bars were an option I had to explore.

what seems to be helping:
scritching like moves with my fingertips as I rinse.
Only rinsing under the shower nozzle (tub rinsing with the pitcher is a thing of the past)
letting it dry a bit before bunning. (working out the why of this still)
a lighter vinegar ratio. (that seems opposite, but less is more)

so, I'm seeing improvement.
I guess I'm a tweaker....

I don't remember having scalp problems even back when I used full-strength SLS or ALS shampoos, although my hair dried out terribly. Now I use Nature's Gate shampoos diluted, so both scalp and hair are happy.

As stated in another thread, I have a problem with even touching a bar of soap. As soon as they're wet, they feel all slippery and slimey, and the goop that forms around them in the soap dish -- ICK!

ETA -- The point to saying that being: thumbs up for liquid soap.
