The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

~Dr Bronners revisited~

remember i mentioned i had bought some Dr Bronners to use to wash my hair with?

well to update you...i have lost the horrid transition hair that you get when you stop using chemicals on your hair...whoop!

for some months my hair has be feeling weird, sludgy almost and feeling not very clean (even though it was) while it shed the chemical build up...i nearly gave up...nearly, but said to myself whats the point of starting it if i just give up?

then suddenly...overnight it seems...i washed my hair and hey presto...the sludgy feeling has gone and with a rinse of dilute apple cider vinegar my hair is super soft and shiny and the wild, dragged through a hedge frizzy has gone as well.
admittedly i do need a trim...i am growing it again...but it needs a little tidy up...but it feels lovely.

so i highly recommend you try Dr Bronners...i use it for washing my face and in the bath as well, it really is a bit of miracle use all potion and the dilute apple cider vinegar is great.

go for it!

That's the weirdest thing, I was wondering how you were getting on with that. Good to know it works. I decanted my 99% alo vera into a small plastic bottle with a nozzle and have been applying it along the partings of my hair, leaving it in over night before washing out next morning.

May be along the line of just what's needed here as I've stopped colouring completely now and frizz seems so much worse with grey!

I wash my hair every day as it gets really greasy, I wonder if Dr Bronners would work for me? x
