Seems the recipe that best works is roughly

1 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
How'd it go? I'm strongly considering trying this!

Those of you who use more natural shampoos....do you do anything to make your hair smell nice? My hair never smells bad, it just doesn't really smell like anything except maybe mild soap. I don't usually miss it smelling like flowery or fruity shampoo, but it'd be nice to have that option. Sometimes I'll spritz some perfume on it, but is there anything that can make it smell all shampoo-y without using harsh shampoo?

IME it's hard to cook sugar wax quite right, and I can never get it to work on my legs.

If you're thinking about it, give it a go! Nothing can go too wrong, unlike regular wax, sugar wax washes out of hair easily. At worst, you waste some sugar (I usually do half recipes because of this). If you mess it up (I always overcook and end up with brittle stuff) you can microwave it to a boil with some more water just so it mixes, and then allow it to set again. For this reason I always pour it into a heatable dish instead of on the counter like Maha.

If you overcook and make it brittle, just break it up and eat it. You've got home made lemon drops.

My hesitation is the pain... lol. And I am worried if it will actually work or not.. then again, hey, if it doesn't, that's cool. Not a lot lost. That said, I have really sensitive skin so I'd love to get using something natural.

So remember earlier in this thread where we were all talking about trying to grow our hair out and overcome the desire to hack it off?

Yeah...
