    Cool Unscented Soap/Shampoo options to prevent your frag from getting drowned out.

    We fragheads spend far too much on high end fragrances to have them competing with cheap synthetic shower gel or shampoo scents, so question, what are some good mild or unscented options for soap, hygiene products. I currently use:

    Dove Men Care unscented bodywash
    Mitchum Unscented Deodourant
    Johnson's Baby Shampoo

    Cheers

    Mitchum Unscented is most people's favourite, because it is the cheapest and does the job very well, and other antiperspirants can indeed be very strong scent wise (arguably, Brut antiperspirant is stronger than half the EDTs that came out last decade).

    But Johnson's baby shampoo gives me a flaky scalp - so I avoid it.

    Most cheap body washes don't leave much of a scent to worry about clashing with EDT. I use a big bottle of Batman shower gel at the moment, without any problems.

    Dove Sensitive Skin Unscented Bar Soap never causes any problems for me with any fragrance.

    +1 Dove Sensitive is awesome. More moisturizing than Lever 2000, Dial, Zest, Irish Springs, etc.
    It doesn't interfere with my cologne or aftershave.
    Also helps prevent pimples

    My hair is so short, it doesn't matter what shampoo I use because I will not smell it after about 20 minutes.
    BTW I like Axe shampoo

    Dr. Bronners for hair is a no go for me. It's just adding more oils, and in turn, makes my hair look weird and just feels dirty a lot quicker.

    I use Dove Men Care soap, the scent is very light and does not seem to linger. Shampoo? My hair is so short I don't use shampoo that often, when I do I use baby shampoo.

    Check out Desert Essence products, they have an organic unscented shampoo and conditioner that are great. I also have short hair and have no problems with most natural products, scented or not. The scent from natural body care products goes away quickly enough.

    Believe it or not but Wal-Mart sells the Equate version of Dove unscented for < 3 bucks. It's a large 24oz. size, unscented. very moisturizing, and for sensitive skin. It is nearly void of scent especially after toweling off. Pretty good stuff actually.

    Yeah this is great. I prefer the soap bar more than the concentrated liquid. My go to is the peppermint one.

    Very true. The other day I forgot to bring shampoo to the gym and had the Bronner's liquid soap with me, so I had to use that. My hair was so oily looking the whole day. It was terrible.

    I love this as well, but I can't do it in winter. It's just not moisturizing enough for the dry winter months in Indiana (though this winter was pretty much like Spring).

    +1! The Desert Essence Organics shampoo and conditioner products are some of the best I've ever used. I also really like the Juice Beauty line (though not unscented), the Broo line (made with Beer which has lots of silicon), and the Giovanni 2 Chic line (not too strongly scented). As for soap, I really like the Whole Foods Market Moisturizing Soap line. These are all all-natural products. Try them and you won't be sorry!

    unscented Tom's of Maine or Kiss My Face soap. and Tom's also makes an unscented deodorant/antiperspirant which is very hard to apply, but does the trick.

    Dove soap. Doesn't irritate my skin and it's fragrance is non-existant or neutral.

    Shampoo wise I use whatever's at hand. Most shampoo's that I've got around the house don't really have a fragrance.

    For Deoderant I use the fragrance free Mitchum one because it's the only one I can find in shops near me and it's not too expensive.

    Dove sensitive skin unscented (widely available, got mine at Walmart)...noticed an sig increase in longevity, and have been picking up notes never noticed before (ie Jasmine in Acqua Di Gio).
