Scarborough Fair

If you pass by me today and get an uncontrollable urge to joust, devour roasted turkey legs, or weave daisies into a chain, I take no responsibility.  Paco handed me a pint Mason jar while I was showering and asked me to rinse my hair in its brown contents.  THAT is why I will smell aromatic, and THAT is why you may suddenly imagine yourself at a renaissance fair!

"Rosemary and thyme have been used for centuries to darken hair and keep it soft and silky.  They also have natural antiseptic properties, which give this rinse the added bonus of keeping your scalp healthy and clean.  After several uses, you will notice the results.  Herbal rinses need to build up over time, but the advantage is that your hair will darken subtly and naturally."

I'm not sure I need to darken my hair. Black to blacker?  But one should never look down one's nose at soft and silky.  He got this recipe from a Mother Earth News source and steeped it overnight on the kitchen counter.  I'm a willing guinea pig, but I'm all but certain the next rinse he's contemplating will be infused in vinegar.  Croutons, anyone?  But then it promises "shine"...

In the meantime, I'm going to lace up my bodice, plait my hair with pansies, and grab my mandolin.  See you at the fair!

Were you around the summer I splashed apple cider vinegar on myself to promote a tan after sunbathing? I will admit it worked, the first and only tan my fair skin ever had, but I hated smelling like salad!

I love the smell of rosemary. Maybe I'll steep me a rinse.
