Can I change my handle to batshitcrazygroomer? I love it and haven't stopped laughing about it since I read it give minutes ago. My client I'd going to think I'm bonkers when he gets here!!! I hope the castor / grapeseed works as well for you as it has for me.

My hair doesn't smell like vinegar. It does while wet, but not when dry. I do ACV, oil, light shampoo, then conditioner on ends.

My shampoo is Aveeno Naturals, I think. Whatever their sulfate-free one is. Conditioner is John Freida.

Yeah, I don't use ACV on my hair but I spray the dogs with it, and once they're dry you don't smell it. I add essential oils to it so that's the scent they linger with when they dry

I rubbed some of Juno's skin spray on my face last night LOL I figured hey, it's natural and if it helps with her rashes, surely it can help with my face... and sure enough my face did look better this morning Maybe I should add some tea tree oil to my oil mixture.

Got a sulfate free shampoo (dang they are expensive!) some women's multivitamins, and ACV. Does it matter if the ACV is organic/raw? They didn't have any. So I just got regular. It's like diluted to 5% acidity or something. Is there something different I should do like use more vinegar to water since its diluted? Or can I not use it at all?

I went to HEB a while back (our local store here ... Don't know if it's nation wide or not like Walmart) they didn't have the raw either, but I bought their brand of ACV (I looked at the ingredients to make sure they were at least natural even tho it was diluted.) & I use it & my hair always comes out soft, shiny & pretty even though its not the "mother" ACV.

I know truly sulfate "poos" are pricy ... Even at places like Walmart (loreal makes a good one for around $7 here which to me is like ... O_o) but I know when I go back to the race track in a few weeks I will need a good natural shampoo because doing the baking soda/vinegar thing there with a shared bathroom is too hard

Okay thanks! I got target brand. I'll try it! What vinegar to water ratio did you use??

Yeah I got the loreal, it was the cheapest I could find. :/ But then again the vinegar was only like $3 for a big jug so it evens out! It's like buying shampoo and conditioner for $5 each. But unfortunately there really isn't much shampoo, it's a small tube for $7....

I'm just doing it at the end of my morning shower. I don't rinse my face off in the water stream, I steam with a washcloth and the pat the extra off, but it just adds a few minutes to the end. (I don't usually wear makeup, though, so no reason particularly to do it at night.)

I would only use it on the days I'm at the track lol. Make one wonder why sulfate free is so darn expensive o_O.

The first time I use 2-3 tbs for every 16 oz but now I have a large mug which if I had to guess is around 32 oz. I don't measure it anymore I just pour a little in lol. For the baking soda I use three or four handfuls in the same mug. The darn stylist that trimmed my hair yesterday put hairspray in my hair so I took a little in my hands, made it into a paste & then rubbed it through before jumping into the shower to wash it out.

What I like about the soda is that it (At least it doesn't me) burn my eyes I also like this method because it helps with dandruff, itching & dryness ... It's also a gentle exfoliate

Who'da thunk things would be cheaper at a natural foods store. I originally bought my castor oil at Walgreens. 4 oz for like $6. Yesterday I was browsing the beauty section at the natural store and what do I see... 16 oz of castor oil for $9. SOLD! lol I thought I was done with OCM but I can't resist a good price

Of course, then I saw the slew of other oils they had, so I had to grab a bottle of sweet almond oil as well. Because it was the cheapest.

AND THEN I had to buy some tea tree oil.

So my new OCM mixture is castor oil + almond oil + some drops of tea tree oil. I have to say I can already tell the almond oil is working wayyy better for me than olive oil was. That stuff was just too heavy maybe? My skin feels as soft as a baby's bottom today

I'm also pretty pumped that my brain kicked on and thought to add the tea tree oil.

I definitely didn't like the olive oil, I don't think many people have success with it. Right now I'm trying grapeseed oil + castor oil just for shiggles, it's not doing a darn thing and I don't expect it to haha.

Careful with tea tree oil, definitely only a few drops! It can be super drying. I used a tea tree oil face wash years ago and it broke me out something horrible. But I think it was just way too much and way too intense because I was using both a TTO cleanser AND TTO toner and I'm almost positive I had a TTO moisturizer too. Curse the lady at The Body Shop who gleefully told me it would be the BEST THING EVER. I got my money back on that stuff. >=|
