DIY wallpapering shelves

When you are a renter and also kinda lazy, your humble abode can feel like it’s not really your home.  That’s how I feel, at least.

Beauty Test Drive: Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo Vs. Apple Cider Vinegar

At the risk of giving you way too much information about the intimate workings of my scalp, let’s just say that something about the water (or humidity? or sweet tea?) in Nashville does not agree with my hair. Ever since moving here, my scalp has been super dry and itchy while my hair seems constantly greasy. Whatever I do, my hair never feels truly clean. It’s gross. In my quest for a solution, I’ve scoured blogs, haircare forums, and DIY Pinterest boards. Two options quickly caught my eye, because they came highly recommended, used similar methods, and promised similar results: one was Neutrogena’s Anti-Residue Shampoo, the other was apple cider vinegar. I tried both. Here’s how they stacked up: Keep reading »
