Restless by nature, on a whim I blew off city living and my career, to try my hand at a simpler-slower life in rural Tasmania. It's going to be one heck of a learning curve..join me as I find my feet, fingers crossed!

Home grown hair care..

In my quest for self reliance, I am trialling a few herby concoctions for silky smooth hair. Anyway, why buy it when you can make it!!

I’ve popped a few spare stinging nettles into a pot, added cold water & simmered for 10 minutes. Then poured thru a fine strainer, jar & fridge. After shampooing my hair, I rinse with the stinging nettle liquid & leave it in. Shelf life for my stinging nettle rinse, was around 1 week. (in the fridge)
And the end result: Bouncy, unfrizzy & soft hair..yippie!!!
