Somebody's in Trouble!

And it's not me! Guess what? Misslady was not supposed to have that heater. I guess she had it on high because it blew a fuse and messed up the a/c for everybody. Nobody has come in to say anything to her yet so I'm just waiting to see what will happen. Everybody was talking about how it was all hot up here yesterday and it felt great to me, but now they know it was her fault, glad I kept my mouth shut once again. Moving on from the heater talk.....

Recently I've become a chemist at home. I mix up hair potions and skin potions. I have good news and bad news about my experiments. I'm really good at mixing hair potions, skin things, not so much. I've never had an adverse reaction to any of my mixtures, but while my hair is doing much better, my skin is still the same. I've stepped up my research into the skin stuff because my face gets worse as the day goes on. I wake up with ok skin but by the afternoon my face is red, itchy and bumpy. I don't touch it, keep hair on it, rub my face on the ground or anything. I'm trying to find a way to discreetly wash my face in the middle of the work day because I know it will help (I'm not bold enough to walk around with a big white washcloth).

Now onto my hair. I mix up hair oils that I use on my scalp almost daily. Some of the things in my mix are: coconut oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, tea tree oil, lavender oil, Castor oil.....whatever else I read about that I drop in. The night before/a few hours before I wash my hair I make a mix of olive oil, coconut oil, neem oil (verrrryyyy stinky), Castor oil, tea tree and peppermint oil. I put it on my scalp and saturate my hair and cover it with a shower cap and scarf. It has eliminated my dandruff and dry scalp and my hair has been grooowwwwiinnngggggg!

I got braids last week to help get me through the summer. My scalp was itching so bad I was about to scratch myself bloody. Last night I decided to get my tea tree oil and some qtips and oil my scalp with just the tea tree oil (it's not a heavy oil it's an antiseptic and very light). My sister was looking at me like 'what an idiot' but my head is doing so much better! I'm glad I thought of it.

Aside from my hair mixes I have been using Aubrey Organics shampoo and conditioner and Cantu hair products. Both lines leave out many of the harmful ingredients that major brands still contain.

That's about it for today, tomorrow (now dubbed Wedding Wednesday) I'll have another question as well as respond to my last question I asked about weddings. Thanks guys for all your help! One more question:

What do you use on your face to keep it clear and lovely?

water. lol. my skin is so sensitive that natural products affect me too! im allergic to coconut oil, babassu oil, tea tree oil, those are just the ones i know about. Im tempted to try the aloe line at my job but i dont wanna run the risk of a break out...im too vain.

we have tea tree oil wipes if your skin is oily. they are easy to stick in your purse and alot of people like them...

Hey! I'm catching up on posts, can I get that recipe for the olive oil hair treatment? I just removed my weave and I need a treatment for dry scalp and something to stimulate growth. Oh, I also just started using Cantu products. The daily conditioner was so cool when I put it on my scalp (yesss!), but after that you can't tell I put it in there.

I'm going to start all over tonight with an olive oil treatment, so PLEASE send me the recipe!
