        Just regular whole milk.

        Would it change the effect if I used 2%?

        So, you wash it out of your hair after 20 minutes, correct?

        I don't know if it works with 2% milk, you'll have to try it to see.

        Yes, you wash it out of your hair, otherwise, by the end of the day you would smell like spoiled milk.

        Can you use powdered milk, mixed as instructions say to reconstitute?

        Hi Liss,
        Over the weekend I tried your no poo shampoo and vinegar rinse. I have been using the no poo for about a week and decided to try the rinse over the weekend without any mousse in my hair. I love how soft and clean it is but my hair is natually curly and so it was very frizzy. I am going to try this milk rinse next weekend ( and not use mousse) to see how it works. Thanks.

        I tried this tonight, following the directions exactly. I was skeptical but tried it anyway. My hair is not even semi straight, it's as curly as normal and I keep smelling milk faintly.

      There are so many different things we repurpose around here. The one that I like the most is I turned my old changing table into a recycling station. I took it--it has 2 shelves and then the top. I...
