thanks for taking the time to make this really easy tute with all the great pictures. i guess ist takes some time to get it as neat as yours but hey, looking at your makeup it's worth it. oh and i love the colors (eyeshadow and hair)
those are stunning! i love the lavenderbuds on top and your labels look so professional too!
i coulnt help but notice the names were german: i used to live in austria and my friend from there has a hard time sourcing lye. now i suppose you're from germany, but maybe you still have a hint as where to start looking? where do you get your from?
i already got mine... it suckkkssss. i got it sept 12 and it's already faded. not only that, but it doesn't look as good as ANY of his other work so i'm suspicious. i already plan to get it covered with another tat. but at least you're right; it didn't hurt much (only when he was near the crease where the ear connects to the head hah)
if it's already visibly faded, you should deinately go to the artist and talk about it. as far as i know most artists will do a free touchup within 2-4 weeks (mine actually asks people to come back, so he can check up). mine all looked sooo much better after the touchup! especially if you have a really small or detailed design this might be the case. i see this must be very frustrating for you, but seriously, professionals will want you to be happy with their work. even if there's nothing to be done about it, you should go back and talk to them, just so they know what went wrong (or that something want wrong, for that matter).
well, since you said you got like the darkest shade of brown possible, the hair that hasn't lightend from you experimental treatments won't turn any darker, i suppose. so you're fine to just dye over it. if you just cover the 'lighter stains' with color, it will probably turn out uneven as well... so probably apply color to the ligher parts first, and then cover the riest of your hair evenly as well... or you just wait and see if it evens out after somet time?
-porridge bar i dont remember the smell of that one, but it shouldn't be hard to make something similar. isn't it a sweet citrus-y smell? probably orange juice to substitute water in cp, and orange blossom smell, and of course porride.
-honey i washed the kids i know there is aloe vera in it, also a lot of honey, also beeswax. the smell is sweet orange and bergamot (go light on the latter).
I'm still trying to find a good way to cut my hair. It's longer (past my bra strap), slightly wavy, but not very thick. I layered the front, but instead of curling and being fluffy, it just kinda looked stringy and fell in all different directions. I do like her hair cut, though, it's very nice. I just know I'll never cut it short in front again, I've tried bangs, I've tried framing my face and it all just annoys me. :p
a little mousse and wrapping layers in the front around your fingers for a few seconds in the last minutes of blowdrying would probably make a differnce? don't know much about your hair, but probably helps, and is hassle free.
not sure about lotion, i guess it would be fine when you shake it before every use...
i do a simple spray when i'm out for a day, that i keep in a small bottle that will use up quickly. i take 1 cup water, 2 drops citronella eo, 2 drops cinnamon eo, 1 drop peppermint eo, 1 drop tea trea eo. fill in a spray bottle, shake well before every use. if you lack any of those oils, just leave them out or substitute for lemongrass, clove, cedar, geranium...
as for the dog, you should be able to use the spray in small amounts on it as well, if he doesn't hysterically try to get it off/lick it away. be careful around the head.
i do a similar thing for horses as well, but as a base i take 2 parts water and one part apple cider vinegar. also i feed them a lot of garlic. both vinegar and garlic work very well, not sure if you want either smell on you, or your dog. the vinegar cools a little as well, and the smell doesn't last very long. (if your dog is white, be careful, if you use the vinegar on him a lot it makes the fur yellowish).
