How to Quit Shampoo Without Becoming Disgusting
Are you cheap? Lazy? Vaguely and perhaps unjustifiably paranoid about slathering your body with chemicals on a daily basis? Then perhaps you'd like to join the “no-poo movement”? Why would you want to quit shampoo? So, let’s review: quitting shampoo will clear up your complexion and make your hair look awesome, plus it will save you time and money. Here’s how you do it: Step 1: Switch from shampoo to baking soda and vinegar -To make your new “shampoo,” slowly add water to baking soda until it’s just slightly gooey. -Next, make the “conditioner.” -Now it’s time to implement your new hair-washing routine. -Use the baking soda and vinegar in place of shampoo and conditioner for at least two weeks. Step 2: Switch from baking soda and vinegar to just water At this point, all you need do is massage your scalp under running water in the shower. Your hair will become quite greasy, but only for a little while. After the first week, you'll still have a little more waiting it out to do.

TONE IT DOWN | Pagesdigital How to Make Your Own Beauty Products from Scratch - Health - GOOD - StumbleUpon Let's keep things simple this week. When it comes to personal-care products, we are big believers in streamlining what you use—see "Eight Products You Think You Need But Don't" for a refresher—buying less in general, and getting creative. We have both always loved experimenting in our kitchens and our bathrooms, checking ingredients in products we love, isolating the main ones, and then trying them on their own. Sometimes it works: A favorite hair leave-in contained aloe, for example, so one day we tried aloe alone and found that, lo and behold, it worked just fine on its own. And sometimes it didn't. Over the years we have tried dozens of DIY beauty recipes to find ones we like—and that work.

EXPERT SECRETS | DIY Sugar&Wax - BEAUTY WOO ME - beauty tips, cosmetics... - StumbleUpon {Image from this etsy shop where you can buy sugar wax if you don't want to make it. We are not affiliated. I just like the way they look. Let me know if you buy the wax!} Hello lovely reader. DO YOU ever make your own beauty products? My favorite, though, is homemade sugar wax or DIY sugaring (whatever you cal it). It's so quick and easy, dirt cheap (you have all the ingredients stocked in your pantry already, swear), non-toxic, hurts less than both strip and hard wax, and rinses clean off, so you don't have sticky spots on your skin when finished; it doesn't clog your pores (Hello?! Sugar Wax Ingredients 2 cups sugar 1/4 cup water 1/4 cup lemon juice Seriously. Simmer all ingredients in sauce pan on medium-high heat until amber, but don't scorch. Cool until you can handle the wax without it being too runny or sticky. Clean yer skin where you're planning to wax. Frankly, that sounds like a better night, to me, than a night on the tiles... My age is showing, isn't it?

In Search Of Little Sadie Interesting Trivia?! & Matt's Notes - StumbleUpon When you’re finished reading, check out the new trivial posts: More Interesting Trivia and Even More Interesting Trivia. Mum sent me this so it has to be true – right? Here are some ‘facts’ about the 1500s: They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & sold to the tannery…….if you had to do this to survive you were “Piss Poor” But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot, they “didn’t have a pot to piss in” and were the lowest of the low. Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good byJune. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. The floor was dirt. (Getting quite an education, aren’t you?) Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. Like this:
