Humans were cleansing with soapwort back in the stone age, so likely were in ancient Greece too. I suspect most of the oils listed in the OP were not used until relatively recently, have you tried extracting the oil from grapeseeds without modern machinery? If you want to be authentic use oils and butters that can be extracted using traditional 'cottage industry' type methods and contain fatty acids that can 'nourish' the scalp or hair - olive, palm fruit, shea butter and coconut oil for example. Mineral oil and petroleum jelly will just build up, not penetrate.
