So I went in the post office a couple of weeks ago, and the guy behind the counter (who I've never met or seen before) says, "Two questions: How can I help you? And what is that scent you're wearing?"
I started to say I'm not wearing a scent, but then remembered, "Uh...rosemary and grapefruit."
He looked puzzled for a minute, and replied, "Is that your perfume, or you had it for breakfast?"
I laughed. "It's in my hair."
Another slightly confused look. "So, you really do use juices and berries in your hair?"
More laughing. "Something like that."
He seemed pretty happy with that answer.
These are the interesting conversations homemade hair potions can stir up. I have once again been wearing my wash/rinse and go fro for a few months. When it's wet, I spritz on my latest concoction: tap water, castor oil, vegetable glycerin, and a few drops each of grapefruit and rosemary essential oils. Then I shape it a bit with my fingers. It works wonders for my hair, which can be on the dry side if left to its own devices. Try it, let me know how it works for you.
