Shampoo

If you buy the travel size shampoo try to get one that the cap comes off easily. That way you can refill it as needed from your favorite big bottle. Wife and daughter like the Gotoob refillable bottles/tubes for their shampoo and body wash liquids. Amazon and Target have the Gotoob products.

im going to look in the travel sizes for Pantone and Dove. Duh, why didn't I think of that!? Thanks everyone.
Forget all that stuff! Just get this (We won one at Goshen this year and it is AWESOME!)

Also get yourself the oxygenics showerhead. It gives more pressure and uses less water.

I use the same shampoo and conditioner 2in1 as a body wash. Shampoo hair and them when rinsing am also washing body. Makes for quick work and less water

Get a water softner. You will be amazed at the difference in your shower experience.

I practiced getting quicker in the shower at home. It has helped my morning routine before woek when I oversleep. I can be showered, dressed, 9 yr old Fed and dressed, dog fed and out and be out the door in under 30 min.

herbal essences naked dry shampoo

I just wanted to respond to this and other emails and ended up in the wrong area sorry.

Red face sponge baths

When we dry camp and on limited water usages we sponge bath using an ice cream bucket or dish pan. first the hair then in that warm water the rest of us. Used to work when we were kids and had no tub of shower. Then we hit a park in 4-5 days and have a great shower etc.
