    I haven’t washed or moisturized my hair since I’ve done the treatment :look: and the moisture is just now wearing off. So it lasted almost two weeks.

    @IDareT'sHair
    I make mine strong like a tonic so about a handful to a 1/3 cup water. But as a rinse it doesn't need to be that strong, about a handful to a cup of water should do.

    I used all the skin from one medium sized onion and used enough hot water to cover them.

    Used my Onion Rinse as a Final Rinse (left it in and proceeded with my L-I's)

    Will use it again next wash day:up:

    Anyone tried the garlic skins yet?

    I have some saved in a jar for later. I want to try them separate from the onion skins so I can see what they do on their own.
