Gor. geous. Total hair envy!

Question: how do you use epsom salt water? Like, how much salt to how much water?

Thanks! (Wow...someone likes my hair! )

Not a lot-maybe...a 1/4 cup to a quart? I dunked, then poured.

I just grabbed a handful and threw it in my son's bathtub toy bowl .

I was impressed with how much clumpage it gave me-I've been really REALLY stringy here lately.


I think I'm going to scrounge up some Amla-if it really tightens curls, I'll be one happy girl.

Amazing, I'm going to have to get some epsom salts. I've been stringy this winter too. Absolutely beautiful!

Fabulous. I bought some epsom salt, but haven't poured it on my head yet. Think if I do it my hair will magically look like yours? Hope so.

So do you really feel the epsom salt help to make it curlier?

Yeah, I think the epsom salt really did make a difference. I tried it again with epsom salt and a squirt of agave nectar, and that worked really well too.

I'm lucky to have moderate dewpoints these days-even our lowest is still pretty good (25ish).

Beautiful! Do you find the magnesium sulfate to be drying at all?

Holy WOW! Gorgeous! I would totally think that epson salts would be downright drying, but you're working it! Really, really nice.

I haven't used it enough to know if it's drying or not, I am expecting that it is, so I save it for special occasions. I should just pony up and buy some re:coil-I used that years ago, but didn't really 'get' how to use it. Wish I would have done it today as it's raining, but my AVG+aphogee goo seems to be doing pretty well.

I can't wait to see what color Nolan is going to put on my head this Friday-I just give him free rein with color because it always looks good, no matter what.

I love that man

I noticed that my hair was slightly drier after one use. My hair starts out on the dry side, so I the effects showed up sooner then they would for most people.

Eklecktika- What fun to have a surprise hair color. I think you could pull off a whole range of hair colors.

I love having a hair dresser that will do surprise color!!

Here's a color that I would have never picked, but it was fun while it lasted --- Mermaid was the name

I don't know-I don't let him stray much beyond brown-I need dark hair to avoid being washed out.

I am very much a winter with yellow undertones (makes no sense, I know, but I need a yellowish foundation) and wash out very easily.

Streaks, now, bring it on baby! I just may copyGoobernuts mermaid look!
