"If you want to gather honey, don't kick over the beehive."~ Dale Carnegie We all have hair -- some more, some less. (Some of us even have it where we don't want it!) Fine, medium, coarse, light blonde, copper-brown, honey-red, ginger-twist, sun-kissed, winter wheat or ash -- no matter, it's all hair. I actually have a lot of nerve writing anything about hair. What I can write about with authority, though, is that daily care with wholesome products can help keep your hair -- if you've got it -- strong and strikingly beautiful. Now once you've made your selection and finally commence the act of shampooing, remember to always massage your scalp slowly but thoroughly with your fingertips, to vigorously stimulate the circulation of blood on the skin wrapping around your skull. I know, I know, you're automatically saying to yourself, "rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat" because every commercially produced shampoo bottle has brainwashed us to do this.

How To Use Baking Soda On Scalp Scabs Sodium bicarbonate, commonly referred to as baking soda, is commonly used to treat wounds at all stages of healing because of its disinfectant properties. Baking soda can help remove hardened scabs, prevent scars from forming and lower the risk of developing an infection at the site of a wound. Before treating any serious wound with baking soda, consult a physician. When combined with water, an endothermic reaction turns baking soda into a mild antiseptic, according to the textbook "Biology: Life on Earth with Physiology." It is not toxic in small doses and unlikely to cause an allergic reaction because its only ingredients are sodium, hydrogen carbon and oxygen.

I had plenty of options here since I tend to stockpile lots of cardboard and paper for this very purpose. My favourite type of cardboard for worm bins is the kind used for egg cartons and drink holders (from fast food restaurants and coffee shops), but I also like to mix things up a little and add a variety of different cardboard/paper types.
