Eughhhh! Disturbing results!

Today I am feeling gross!  Horrible!  Really disgusting!

My hair was washed again this morning with bicarbs and vinegar and although it feels OK, it is full of static and looks oily.  My skin washed with the olive and castor oils is nice and clean, and the moisturising bee-wax product, feels good on my skin, however my skin is quite red (not sunburn red - more like paraffin imbiber red) and it feels really thick and rough (again, paraffin imbiber thick and rough).  I am trying to go make-up free for a while, especially during this transition time, but to be honest with you, I look like a serious alcoholic street-dweller, and although I have nothing against such people, life can be hard on us all, well, it is just not a good look for me at this point in my life!

I am determined to make this transition though and so I am trying to decide whether or not keep up with the products for at least a week to see if my body starts settling down - I don't want to just switch products (or should I say ingredients) too quickly, I have to give it a good going  .... don't I!

I have not had the luxury of hiding at home either.  I have had to go out.  I am just swallowing my pride, putting on a bright smile and trying not to sweat it too much.

Oh dear!  This is disturbing!


  1. I once tried to switch to only baking soda and vinegar rinses for my hair care. I did not like the results with that protocol. I ended up making a shampoo with a castiile soap, herbal tea as its base, and I liked that much better. I stopped using it during my recent transition since I really had no time to make such products myself. Thanks for the reminder to get started on that again! Bright blessings!

  2. Hi Tammy,

    Thanks for stopping by, I have seen that many people use Castile soap - unfortunately, we can't get it here ... blah!

    So, I keep experimenting!
