What's the craziest thing you've ever put in your hair?

baby lotion

my Fotki hair journey/experiment diary PW is brio (and I really need to update it!)

3A hair; coloring with henna/indigo since July 2009; normally follow the CG method. Still searching for my HG products!

I tried baby powder to get rid of root oiliness & ended up looking like I was wearing a British Parliament or royalty wig!

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
Monistat 2% for hair growth. I couldn't make myself do it long enough to see if it really works, however.
What's working this week:
Shower: Garnier 3x Nutrition shampoo 1x per week, cowash with Tres Semme Naturals, condition with
GF Sleek and Shine deep conditioner
Styling: Tres Semme Naturals as leave in, L'Oreal Melting gel and HE SMU raked in, LOOB and AG Re:Coil scrunched in, Jojoba Oil scrunched in when totally dry
3B
I'm thinking about (just thinking at this point) using monistat 2% cream on my scalp as a hair growth aid. Other than that -- sulfur-infused oil, honey, acv, coconut milk, aloe vera (not all together).

Guinness beer swiped from my BF at the time. If you try it just make sure it is at room temp and not fresh out of the fridge!

I use honey, but I don't consider that crazy. Wait... does that mean I'm crazy...?

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
Just before logging on today I tried using the "warming" KY jelly -- I was heading for the KY thread to post and saw this one first. Other than that, just the usual NC stuff -- honey, ACV, salts, coconut milk, banana, avocado . . . When i was a kid my mom used to give me beer rinses now & then (I think it was supposed to make it shiny, like lemon or ACV), and once she tried to give me a raw egg treatment -- unfortunately, she used hot water to rinse with and I had scrambled egg in my hair for days.
2-something? Coarse, medium underneath. Mid-back. On CG since 5/9/07.
Washing COs: VO5 Blackberry, Suave Cherry
Detangle and leave-in: Sally's GVP Conditioning Balm -- I found my HG CO!
Seal with camellia oil
Leave-in: Aura cherry almond
Gels: Homemade FSG, Eco-styler
Plus: SOTC or smooth with camellia oil, JC Nourish & Shine
Homemade food-based DTs
RC color

I think it did make my hair shiny, but it was hard to work with, it was so runny. I maybe once put it in a glass and soaked my ends in it. Smelly beer smell in the shower also...I've sinced moved on to Ouidad's DT.

And on that note, before putting avocado in your hair, make sure it is fully pureed I was picking chunks out for days.

Yesterday I thought KY jelly was as far as we could take this, but I guess I was wrong!

I tried beer a long time ago, can't remember how it turned out...can't have been very spectacular. I've used baby lotion, hand cream, and once I discovered a dirt-cheap suncream in a Pound shop that made my hair look awesome! This was many years ago, I've never found it since, but it probably had a pile of 'cones in anyhow!
Here are my curly pics, password is fuzz

But then again, too few to mention...
nothing too crazy just the usual - avocado -tried to make a mask and was picking chunks of it out of my hair for a couple days despite washing my hair for about 25 minutes the day i tried it and again the following day.

Banana mixed with coconut milk and some oil, worked really well actually but people did look at me like i was nuts when they said "isn't it about time you threw out those bananas" and i jump up stopping them replying "no! they're for my hair"

Maple syrup - figured since honey works well i'd try maple syrup, only reason is that it smells good.

to all those who tried Kool aid , was that like a rinse/ tint and did it work??
Long thick curls, mix of 3b/3c
Mine aren't so weird either. I think. Anyone else tried smoothing some Lubriderm lotion on their hair? I heard somewhere it helped with static in a pinch. Now I'm allergic/sensitive to it. It doesn't seem like such a great idea.

I also heard rubbing a fabric softener sheet on your head was supposed to help. Not sure if I ever tried that one, but again, I would never do it now (what the heck is in those things?) I use the fragrance free ones to avoid static in clothes and ward off any weird scents in the dryer (since it's a shared one with lots of other renters). They still have weird chemicals in them.

I also heard the thing about putting baby powder to help with oiliness. I think I tried a bit and on my dark hair, it looked awful! Looked like I my hair was turning white as a teenager. It did not disappear, either.

one day I was desperate and was in an experimental phase and I put fabric softener in my hair I immediately washed it out, though. I dunno what I was thinking.
