11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Jewish Swap on: April 11, 2008 09:53:47 PM
OK, so I feel really bad.  I offered to organize this swap a couple of times last year, but I never actually got off my butt and started it up.  <hangs head in shame>  Embarrassed

Consensus seems to be, sign-ups late May / early June.  Any thoughts on how much to swap?  Personally I'm inclined to make this swap nice and easy... maybe a minimum of 1 large item, or the equivalent in medium/small items, and partners can mutually agree to send more than that.  And a nice long crafting time.  Sound good?

Shabbat Shalom, all. Wink

I agree- I really like small-ish swaps  Smiley

Looking at the ingredients: Corn (Zea Mays) Starch, Montmorillonite, Tapioca Starch, Oat Starch, Oat Flour, Silica, Fragrance (Parfum).  It does note that it may contain Iron Oxides (C177491)...this would be simple to make yourself.

If I were to make this, I'd start with corn starch, some arrowroot powder or one of the other starches, some fragrance, and clay (that montmorillonite is a type of clay, so green bentonite, fuller's earth, white kaolin, or washed blue organic clay would be good choices). Then I'd throw in a titch brown oxide to match my hair colour (I've tried straight corn starch and it gives my brown hair an ashy hue...). Get yourself a shaker bottle and try it out. You may have to tinker with percentages, but if you start with mostly corn starch, and throw in dibs and dabs of the other things (fragrance at 1% of your mixture), I think you'd be off to a great start.

As a secondary note, for shampoos and conditioners that I make, I use 2% essential oil for oily hair blend -- equal parts rosemary, sage, lemon, and cedarwood. I find this gets me an extra day between washings (and considering I have very thick, coarse, waist length hair that isn't dry by the end of the day, this is huge for me!) Perhaps adding something like that to this mix would be a good thing? Or adding it to your regular shampoo or conditioner?

Finally, check out this link for a comparison between this product and corn starch: http://www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip543.htm

Wow, thanks so much- that is really helpful!!! one question though, where do I find the clay and brown oxide??

Today did straight cornstarch, and it's ok, but i think it could definitely be improved upon!!
