The Soap Tribune, Issue #196--apple cider vinegar for hair

Apple cider Vinegar for Hair

When you make the switch from SLS shampoo products to a natural shampoo bar, it is critical to do an apple cider vinegar hair detox.

What this means, is you are simply removing the artificial greases in hair conditioners that stay on your hair.

Apple cider vinegar also helps with dandruff issues, split ends, and gives you a little bit more shine.

I like to do an apple cider vinegar detox 2-3 times a year. Andy does one every 1-2 months.

Eggs and news

The Ithaca Farmers Market Spring selection is growing. We are developing a nice egg following.

I have to boast a bit after the coop issues we struggled with this past Winter. Now our eggs are clean right from the coop, with good hard shells, strong egg whites and brilliant yokes. This suburban girl has learned how to keep chickens!

The local selection is growing as we move closer to strawberry and rhubarb season. My rhubarb has poked through the mulch, the stems are getting longer and more juicy every day.

Sourdough Bread

Over the last 18 months, I have been teaching myself to make sourdough bread. It's all about the starter and your flour.

If you are a baker and want to perfect your skills, join me on this journey. I have updated the technique and recipe to get great bread!


Water Conservation efforts

Many liquid soaps, natural or synthetic are thickened with a liquid vinyl gel, known as a poly acrylic acid. It is designed to expand many times its size when it absorbed water and swells.

Instant Liquid Soap is an easy way to pitch in in the world wide water conservation efforts.

How to exfoliate your skin

What does exfoliation mean? Exfoliation is the action of removing dead skin cells and dirt build up on the skin's surface, thereby promoting new skin cell growth. New skin cell growth deep cleans the skin.
