Regina Said:Can I substitute safflower oil for sunflower oil?
We Answered:You can use whatever oil you want, so long as the fat content is more or less the same. All oils will have a slightly different taste though.
Marjorie Said:How can I moisturize and get shiny brunette highlights naturally?
We Answered:You should try coloring your hair with 100% natural henna powders. Henna is used for decorating the skin and tinting the hair in many Middle-eastern and south asian countries. Because of their super-dry desert climate, they apply henna to their skin not only for decoration but as a moisturizer. They sell henna specifically for tinting the hair and it's super moisturizing, allowing you to achieve deep brown and red highlights. They come in a variety of shades now I think. Try looking for it at your local healthfood store. You can mix the henna with a binder like the olive oil, and a little water and then apply it to your hair, cover with plastic wrap and apply heat. It works fabulously. Try a brand like "Rainbow Henna" hair color.
Mitchell Said:Anyone have any great homemade Chapstick recipes?
We Answered:Basic Recipe
* 2 - 2 1/2 teaspoons of your oil
* 1/2 teaspoon beeswax
* 1/2 teaspoon flavoring (optional)
* 1/2 teaspoon extra moisturizers (optional)
* 1/8 teaspoon preservative
* 1/4 teaspoon color (optional)
With any recipe, begin by melting your oils and beeswax in a heat-resistant container. Pyrex measuring cups work especially well for this, as they can be put in the microwave and have pour spouts to prevent spilling. Alternately, you can use a small pot to heat the ingredients. Once they have all melted, allow three to five minutes for the mixture to cool. The purpose of this is to preserve later ingredients, which may be damaged by high temperatures. Use the cooling period to clean and sterilize your lip balm containers. Stir in any flavorings, colorants, and other optional ingredients. While the mixture is still a liquid, pour it into your prepared containers. You can either purchase these in the cosmetics department of your local store or reuse old chapstick jars. Once the lip balm has cooled and solidified, it is ready for use. Remember to keep the finished product in a cool place or it will melt.
