    Dang! I was hoping ya'll had em by now and that the reason I had not heard anything about them was because you all had slipped into comas due to the luxurioiusness of the shampoo bar and the overwhelming yummy fragrance. :-)

    I'll be picking mine up from the company as soon as I get back to GA. I don't want to risk any shipping problems.

    Pookeylou,
    It has only been a week for me, so I am okay with the wait. I WILL let you know how it turns out. Jennifer called me last night after a couple of emails. I was pleasantly surprised. She is kind of nervous after all of the hype. She told me that she hopes that no one HATES them, and she also shared a few of the variations that other people ordered, and they all sounded so YUMMY. I decided against changing your recipe. She also mentioned that the soap still needed to be left out to finish curing. She said that if I do that, then the bar will harden a LOT more. OOOOHHHHH......I CAN'T WAIT!!

    Whoooohooo! I just got an email from her too. She will be donating the leftovers of the PSB to my organization. I will be paying for her to ship it to me, so I wanted to go ahead and order her "Soap Making Kit" in the process. She said she was just thinking of me while "packing up the soap for all my sisters"!

    :-) Yeeeeeee! I could just squeal with delight.

    You know I didn't want to be the 1st one to post anything but I was the 1st to place my order of the Pookielou soap and I haven't received it yet. Tomorrow would be 3 weeks so I'm trying to be as patient as possible.

    Please share some of the variations with me too. I may have to reorder minus the rosemary cuz I'm prego. We'll see.

    You know I didn't want to be the 1st...

    Make sure you call her and ask what the status is! Document all conversations and emails! Did you place your order before or after her site "Closed Down" for a while. That's important to know...cause her site said that even if you placed orders during her "down" time, they would not be filled until she opened back up.

    Her site says that she has the bars in stock, but if you added something to them, then she had to make them special. Either way, make sure you call her!

    Gurrrrllll...were you sleeping!?!? Under a rock!?!?!?

    You missed the "Homemade Hair Products" Soap ( :-) ) Opera!!!!

    Here it is in 100 words or less:

    Pookey orders poo bars.
    Poo bars never come.
    Pookey complains about poo bars.
    Poo bar maker sends them.
    Pookey vows never to use poo bars.
    Pookey runs out of other members natural hair product goodies.
    Pookey forced against her will kicking and screaming ...to use poo bars.
    Pookey loves poo bars.
    Pookey looks for another source to make poo bars.
    Pookey opens her big mouth about how much she loves poo bars.
    Fellow nappies order poo bars with same recipe.
    A meeting is held between Pookey and poo bar maker.
    Poo bar maker ask to name poo bar after Pookey.
    Pookey feels honored and ask for donations of left over poo bar material to non profit organization.
    Poo bar maker agrees and continues to make Pookey's poo bars for other customers.

    Thus Pookeylou's Shampoo Bar is born!

    Now if every one gets theres and hates it...you never knew me. :-)

    oh, i stayed with the aforementioned thread as long as possible! guess i left just when the going got really good. i was (along with everyone else) entranced with the thought of your YUMMY poo bar (ok, why am i using "yummy" and "poo" in the same sentence??). do you know if there's a way to order 1 bar at a time? the smallest amount i see available is 10! i'll be washing my hair until i'm 40 going that route...not that that's a bad thing, of course.

    PookeyLou have you used the bar on your skin or just on your hair? I plan on keeping my hair in small twist(there just 2days old now) for the remainder of the summer so I won't be washing my hair alot.

    Thanx

    Ugh! I haven't gotten any emails from her. I order the Pookeylou bar original formula the day she opened back up (after vacation) for business. I was on the phone with her ordering the product and talking about Pookielou the same day.

    I've received no emails, no totals, no nothing, no estimated ship date or anything. I'm gonna email her this morning to see if I get a response. By mid-day if I don't hear from her I'm gonna hunt her down via the phone.

    I talked with her last night and she posted info in another thread also:

    She said she pulled all the orders for the Pookeylou Poo Bar and packed all of those up that day. All of them were sent out the same day.

    48 ORDERS

    She said the soap was shipped from as far as California to New Mexico to South Carolina to New York.

    She said she was cursing the name "Pookeylou" by the end of the day! :-)

    So Snuckles...give her till the end of the week. She said the orders went out yesterday. Not sure how they were delivered. But a week from yesterday is plenty of time I think.

    Remind me to tell you what one of her co-workers said about the soap...who is of the caucasian persuasion. :-)

    I really have only concentrated using it on my hair. It gets on my skin of course. This may be silly but I thought, if this soap has rosemary in it to help your hair grow...I dont want to DELIBERATELY be washing with it. Next thing you know I have hair growing on my chest!

    So far I have had no problems with it when it gets on my neck and back though. I have not showered with it to experiment to see how it feels on my skin.

    I need to do that.

    Where's the jumping up and down emoticons?

    Pookielou tell us, tell us what the caucasian co-worker said! Tell us, tell us op

    I just wanted to really hear from Jennifer because I gave her my debit card and wanted a total $$ from her. I ordered the soap along with a bunch of other stuff and she never emailed me a total. Please don't let my soap arrive with out my other stuff. Hubby will kill me as he's been waiting these 3 weeks for his shea butter. Please don't let it arrive with out my sugar scrub and other stuff. Oh, please.

    Where's the jumping up and down emoticons?Pookielou tell us,...

    Snuckles...defintely go ahead and contact her and make sure your order is complete. Tell you you are a pregnant woman with a cranky husband who needs his SHEA BUTTER! :-)

    Jennifer said that the co-workers were constantly questioning her about the Pookeylou soap. She explained that I picked out the ingredients based on the needs of my AA hair. One of them wanted to see what the hype was all about and went into her house and washed her hair!

    When she came out she said, "OMG...this stuff is wonderful." Now she went ahead and conditioned her hair after Jennifer explained that you shouldnt need to. So her hair looked "wet" still hours later. I am sure it was too much oils and butter for her hair.

    I am not making any promises...but I may be able to get samples to send to ones who want to try it before they buy it.

    Now dont yall start PM'ing me trying to get on some list! :-)

    If....and that is a big IF :-) I can get samples, I will work out a way to get them out and I will make an announcement if that can happen.

    I am hoping you will all get your stuff sooner than expected!

    Ugh! Just got off the phone with her after getting a response to from her to my email basically saying, "Who are you and what did you order?"

    Needless to say I called her right up and reminded her of the almost hour-long conversation we had 3 weeks ago. She said she remembers but not sure what she did with the order or all I ordered. Of course I'm hopping mad knowing that everyone is getting their bars today or tomorrow and she didn't even send my order out!!! I remained disturbingly calm over the phone. Told her to find my order and call me back as I don't remember everything that I ordered.

    # $#$%$%^%%!!!

    Okay, for those who wanted to know the variations...
    One individiaul requested that their bars smell like kiwi, another added hemp oil, others added jojoba oil. That's all that I remember.

    snuckles....I hope you get your order soon. I think that she is getting a LOT more business than she bargained for. Maybe she needs help with organization. I dunno.
    Pookeylou...Girl, see what you done started!! I am anxiously awaiting the bars. In the meantime I have had to dust off the bottles of Daily Defense Tender Aplle, as well as the old Suave Milk and honey. Even the natural soaps that I have used seem to make my hair feel stripped. I remain hopeful....

    Lucrative orders for Jennifer! Those ingredients are great! I have not used conditioner since I started using the soap. I am thinking about ordering my next set from her without the rosemary and add kiwi scent. But I also want the soap kit.

    She lost my order! Pookielou, I can see why you were pissed off with her in the first place!!!

    I asked her to find the order and destroy it cuz it has my credit card information on it. She said that she doesn't remember me giving her credit information; I don't know how she could say that since she didn't even remember what I ordered! I'll never know if she finds it or not. Stupid me, the one time I give out my debit card, the order gets lost with the information on it!!!

    I just placed another order for my stuff with her through the web site. She said that she's not going to accept phone orders anymore because she's so disorganized, duh. If she would've told me that during our hour-long conversation, I would've placed my order through the web. Pookielou, I bet that's what happened originally with your order.

    Ugh! She said that she would expedite the order for me to make sure that I get it by Saturday and that she would throw in some extra bars of soap. Like that would help! I'm already getting 10 bars I don't need no extra bars, I just need my order!

    I'm sorry!!

    I hope that tomorrow I have my soap waiting for me or at LEAST a note from the pstsman saying that I have to go to the pst office to get it. Sometimes they leave stuff here, and sometimes they don't.
