bluing rinse

The other day, my mother gave me a full 1963 bottle of Mrs. Stewart's Liquid Bluing.  As I was reading the label, it occurred to me that this bluing liquid is the same stuff mentioned in some of the 1930s-1950s hair product recipes.  And on the bottle, confirming this ingredient, is the sentence, "For White or Gray Hair -- Add few drops to rinse water."  

I'm very eager to try this sometime.  :)

Today, I received from a wonderful guy, a bottle of Osage Rub.  He said that this stuff is the best stuff to put on after a head or face shave.  It leaves your skin feeling tingly all over.  I'm excited about trying that too.  

 For the hair blog:

July 17th - July 20th:  soft and firm, especially when rubbing with the hair growth.  It's still rough and a bit prickly when rubbing against the hair growth.  Washed hair the past couple of nights with TRESemme Conditioner, which contains vitamin h & silk proteins.  I love this stuff.  I leave it on for at least five minutes, and it always makes my hair so soft and silky.  :)  Just like it claims.

Oh, about my eyebrows since I've been asked about that.  They are growing in slowly, and are very prickly.  When leaving the house, I do a thin arch with brown eyebrow pencil.  Depending on my mood, I will do a high arch or a simple swipe across, with little height.  At home, I forgo the pencil, as I'm not really a make-up kind a girl.  If I was stranded on a desert island, and could only bring one makeup piece, I'd bring the mascara.  :)
