OMG if I put anything on my face that ended in the word "oil" it would look like a pepperoni pizza for sure :/ lol.

I like my hair to be "touchable" I only use the braid for work to "protect " my hair for work to keep it "safe" lol

My skin is super oily and it actually seems to have helped even since last night. Usually I wake up with a new blemish or two in the morning, but this morning there was nothing new (whoohoo!).

The premise is that oil dissolves oil. The skin oil that gets dirt and impurities in it and hardens in your pores is what causes acne.

When you take a clean oil full of vitamins and minerals and massage it into your skin, it dissolves the hardened gross dirty plugs of oil in your pores. Then you steam your face under a cloth and wipe off the excess. Voila! clean.

If you've ever used orange or lemon oil to clean a greasy stove, you'll know how well that works. Same principal.

What Romy said. I've got really oily skin and am prone to breakouts and what I think might be undiagnosed cystic acne. Since I started this a month ago I've gotten one pimple and that was right at the start. No new breakouts, much more even skin tone and less oily skin.

We'll see how it works long term and I know everyone's skin is different but so far I'm impressed!

What's the best way to achieve long, healthy, soft, shiny hair? I have been battling damaged/ungrowing hair for a long time now, and it's SO much better than it was (the ends were basically fried off when I had my hair ombréd about 8 months ago), but it isn't in good shape. It has grown slightly but I have had to cut off dead ends a little at a time.

It grows VERY LITTLE, VERY SLOWLY. I have trimmed maybe an inch or two off at most in the last 8 months and it is the exact length it was when I ombréd it. I used to have very long, thick, healthy hair, and now it is nothing like it used to be for whatever reason. My guess is a combination of damage (from bleaching/coloring) and diet (from when I was on a 500 calorie diet with no fats or oils of any kind, even on your hair or skin).

However I have been eating relatively healthy and haven't colored or bleached my hair, have been using expensive "treatment" shampoo and conditioners, applying expensive Aveda brand oils to my ends, and leave in conditioner, trying not to blow dry or straighten, etc, etc. It is definitely in better shape than it was. But nothing like it used to be.

Any tips? This OCM for your face sounds fantastic, like a skin miracle, so maybe one of you also knows a hair miracle?
Try a deep conditioning treatment? I'm guessing your hair is naturally wavy/curly since you mentioned straightening it? If that's the case your hair will probably love some extra moisturizing. It's rare that I do a deep treatment because I get lazy and forget - but this thread had me feeling girly today so I actually have some goop sitting on my head right now. It'll help repair your hair, get some moisture back in it, make it soft and shiny... probably not help it grow, I think that's just an individual thing, but it's beneficial in lots of other ways!

Anyway I make a homemade treatment by raiding my kitchen. Today I made mine with a few squirts of conditioner, a chunk of a banana, tablespoon or so of olive oil, a plop of coconut oil.... mix it all together, apply it to wet hair, and now I just have my hair all up in a clip while it sits for an hour or so. You can add honey, mayonnaise, eggs... I just don't have any of that stuff There's no rhyme or reason to how much of each ingredient I use, and I ended up having A LOT extra since my hair is pretty short.

Otherwise healthy maintenance. My hair started looking a lot healthier just by using more natural products that aren't full of chemicals. I do use a little bit of heat, I blow dry my bangs and sometimes diffuse the rest of my head a little - but that doesn't seem to affect my hair really.

Hair miracle - depends on what you are already doing but generally...

Get down to washing 1-2x a week

Use sulfate free shampoos

Get as basic and natural as you can with your products

Nourish your insides as well

Make masks, packs, etc out of everday items. Egg, vinegar, coconut oil (all ois really), avocado, on and on are all great things to use for conditioning purposes.

I'll have to give the oil thing a shot. I've tried natural face washing products and it does weird things to my skin. My face wants chemicals dammit!

I'm not super impressed with Burts Bees shampoo and conditioner, and I can't bring myself to order shampoo off the web. My hair does well with the sulfate free L'Oreal stuff I think it is. I have read that it's not truly sulfate free, more like low sulfates, but it works better than Burts Bees and regular shampoo. I work in a factory and while it's a pretty clean factory, I feel icky is I don't shampoo daily.

Oh and with all things, when switching to less washing of hair, new products, OCM for the face, washing with honey (which is awesome too), etc etc, sometimes it takes time to adjust to the new routine and it can get worse before better.

And, anyone else here have addiction to nail polish?? With gardening season hitting its peak, my nails will suffer...but I still love my polish

I miss my nail polish so much At work I regularly have to use industrial strength acetone with is obviously not good for the polish. I have some coworkers who swear by these gel nail stuff they get some at a nail place. They can get acetone on their nails and it doesn't remove it. It's their own nails too, not acrylics (which I've had and will never do again).
