i know this will sound weird but i rinse my hair with vinegar(then wash it) once every week or two. it's something my mom taught me. i hair a ton of hair, not thick but lots of it, so i have to use conditioner or there's no way i'm oing to be able to get a brush through it! the problem for me is using conditioner really makes my hair look greasy, but rinsing with vinegar gets all of the crap off my hair and it looks super shiny but not greasy. my mom uses vinegar for everything! it keeps your skin soft too if you use a little in your bathwater, and it also takes the sting out of a sunburn(a big problem for me i'm a super fair skinned irish girl).

so i'm feeling pretty proud of myself because i invented my own do it yourself face mask
using multiple ingredients that i know work well on your face

Oats- Have softening properties
Honey-Antiseptic; good for acne
Milk- moisture, especially if you use a higher percent fat milk
Nutmeg-I'm not sure, but a common treatment is milk and honey paste on acne. When I've used that, it gave me a tingly cooling feeling, so we'll say it increases circulation!

1. Grind up a batch of whole oats in the food processor, and store it in a little container for this purpose.  You could use whole oats, but I worry that it will clog up drains =/
2. Get a little tray and put a bit of milk in there (the smallest amount you can get out of a milk jug without spilling is about right)
3. Add enough oats to soak up the milk and make a paste
4. Add a dollop of honey (teaspoon or so)
5. Add a bit of ground nutmeg.  Enough so the brown shows up
6. Slap that goop on your face. Kinda looks.... like vomit. (sorry).  A thin layer is fine.  If it's not sticking that great, add more oats and honey next time.

Honestly, it doesn't really matter how much you have of each. Or what order or anything.  I just was experimenting the other day and my face was the softest it has ever been in my entire life after I rinsed this off. Not even kidding. So I thought I'd share.  I have it on again right now =)
Basically it has a tight, somewhat tingly feeling.  And i leave it on for however long i feel like

please let me know what your experiences are with it

I tried this today,and my face is so soft now, thanks!  Smiley I have one tip though, if it looks too wet, add some oatmeal, but not too much. If you let it sit, the mixture thickens up really quickly.

Ok! So, does anyone know what happens when you put lemon juice andchamomile teaandcoffee in average light brown hair? ^_^ I ask because I've got slightly mixed hair (English/Irish/American Indian apparently). It's an even shade of light brown, but it has scattered auburn/blond/black strands and I would like to bring out ALL of them. >.> And I'm a scaredy-cat when it comes to trying new stuff with my hair. I like to know what it's going to do first! I just read on this page about hot oil treatments for hair, I'd never heard of that before, and I'm going to try olive oil/honey together - I'll let you all know how it turns out.
Note! To People Who Are New To Regular Brushing
If you are just starting with regular nighttime brushing (or whenever you do it) make sure to de-tangle your hair first by running your fingers through it until all the knots are gone. Then take a natural bristle brush and brush from scalp to tips until your hair starts to feel more sleek (or non poofy for you curly-mops). Make sure you do this all while standing, preferably in the bathroom. If you don't regularly brush your hair, de-tangleing it will free a lot of loose hair that had gotten tangled...In other words, you shed. Don't do this in your bed like I did the first time! ^_^; It looked like a me-coloured cat had rolled on my pillow, and I had to wash my pillow case to get the tiny hair lengths out (from split ends).
Question! I read a lot of good ways to help get rid of back acne, soaps and moisturizer ectera, but how am I supposed to reach my back to put them on? >.> *Not that bendy* Thanks!
