"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

New No-Poo Recipe!

Now Playing: Asleep in the Sea by As Tall As Lions ft. Kimbra

Haha new invention cause I...ran out of apple sauce...


equiv. of 4 teabags. This can be green, black, whatever...tea leaves, fresh or used, tea bags, the tea bags used to make the vinegar rinse, fresh or dried herbs...anything goes.

2 tablespoons each of:
ACV or rosemary acid
White vinegar or lemon juice
Witch hazel or vodka

1 tbsp epsom salts or sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3 drops tea tree oil
3 drops argan oil

Vinegar is seriously your hair's best friend. The acidity and the alcohol replaces the harsh detergents in shampoo. The oil is needed to balance overdrying from the salt and argan oil is, I find, the best oil for slightly oily hair; it is very light and non greasy, but moisturizing. Replace with whatever vegetable oil (and in whatever quantities) that suit your hair. Epsom salt is an old housewives remedy for...pretty much anything; medical complaints, skin disorders, fertilizing the garden...fabric softener...it strips product from hair and helps volumize, and, ya'know, it's a fabric softener (sorry if my unscientific thought processes bug you)

Combine and use as normal. Rinse out thoroughly (use a comb! little bits of tea are a nightmare) and use vinegar rinse.

Super messy, but silky soft hair! Happy ;P
