      You will find that your hair is very straight and silky.

        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.

      Re: improve a cake mix ?

      One of my favorite things to add to cake mix is: instead of water and oil add applesauce. This can make it moist and if doing a spice cake add nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon.
