I think the effect of the true, the blushful Hippocrene takes a while to go away.
My niece called up and mentioned that her dad has recommended that she use vinegar to clean her hair – apparently this is a much better thing to do than shampoo and other such manufactured goo.
Since her dad is a scientist, with President’s Gold Medals, and endless pics of him being shaken by the hand by PMs, Presidents, etc to show for his eminence, I couldn’t ask her to laugh in his face and jazz off to the beauty parlour. So, I did a bit of scientific research myself. This is what I came up with: Tutorial site wikiHow says you can get rid of nastry, goopy build-up on your showerhead without using chemicals — instead, simply simmer it in white vinegar and wipe off any mineral deposits.
- lifehacker says you can run a white vinegar-water mixture in your automatic coffee maker as a cleaning cycle
- a reader on lifehacker had this to say – “And for a second I thought it involved cleaning my own head with vinegar”
- Angelfire gives some 130 uses of vinegar, and it has this to say re vinegar and hair – “Take 1 cup of vinegar and warm water into a large glass and use to rinse your hair after you shampoo. Vinegar adds highlights to brunette hair, restores the acid mantel, and removes soap film and sebum oil.”
- Angelfire also says this – “Dampen your appetite. Sprinkle a little vinegar on prepared food to take the edge off your appetite.”
And that’s where Angelfire loses me. Why should I wish to take the edge of my healthy appetite? Let Angelfire burn in hell fire instead.
My niece’s dad’s head looks like this – so what will he know about hair anyway?! I told my niece to git her butt to the salon instead.
