I happened to mention to my sister that I had okra in my freezer. Why? Because I boiled it and put the boiling liquid on my head. She says I shouldn't be allowed to read this website without adult supervision.

Plunky, is that shampoo based on Shel Silverstein's poem Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout (would not take the garbage out)?

Pull hair out at an angle (like it's pointing to your shoulder) then cut it at an angle towards whatever your shortest layer is. If I pull it out at a 40 angle, then I cut it at about a 60 angle (from vertical). For my hair, as I trim, the waves and curls jump right into place when I let go.
yep tutorial please the sooner the better LOL is that at all like the new CG book cut?

I'm gonna stick to my ACV rinses though, I just can't stomach the beer thing P.U. glad it's working for ya though..

I thought that Cynthia Sylvia... sounded vaguely familiar.

Okay, I'll get DH to take some pics of the "can't remember what book I learned it from" haircut technique for "shaped layers."

Don't quite know how to get pics embedded in the post - the little icon never works for me. I want "drag n drop" (I use a Mac).

Will have it by Friday.

Pedaheh, your sister is as funny as you are!

Hey when you started talking about boiling okra I started thinking about boiling oatmeal with lots of extra water for some oat protein. It's all your fault.

Solid! So glad to see you're still around. And yes - it's gotten long, mostly out of laziness on my part. I don't have to diffuse when it's longer!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is. They like plays on words. One of my favourite holiday bubble bars is Marzibain...a play on marzipan and "bain" (french for bath).

I tried the beer rinse this morning. There was half a can of pbr left from last night. Washed with Queen Helene mint julep, poured on a bit of beer after rinsing, rinsed out, put on my potion 9 as leave in, poured on the rest of the beer and left it in. I scrunched, combed through, rearranged, dried under the hardhat. My hair dried as if I had used gel. It had good hold, no frizz, and a little crunch. An excellent substitute for gel or setting lotion.

I might add that using beer on your hair is not cost effective unless it is left over beer. At $1 per can for pbr, even using half a can at a time, the cost is many times more than using a tablespoon of, say, ecostyler argan oil gel which comes in a huge tub that costs only $3 to $4 and lasts for months even if you use it daily.

My family asks, "Why is this (whatever) in the fridge?", or "Who bought the (something strange)?"

Of course, they only ask so that they can laugh at me when I say it's for my hair

Yes, I'm reviving an old thread because I was doing a search for beer

Dark. Beer. And let it go flat first, if you can. You could probably hide a bottle somewhere. Unless you have ants in your house.

I love beer. To drink and to pour over my head. Though I prefer to pour the not-as-tasty beers on my head and the others directly into my face.

I also love the Cynthia Sylvia Stout shampoo from Lush. But it does tend to make me thirsty....

How about beer and water half and half in a spray bottle. Could refrigerate it too! I just might have to give it a shot!
