BILB, YOU BRUGHT BACK MEMORIES OF THIS GIRL IN HIGH SCHOOL. SHE WANTED RED HAIR SO SHE PUT 3 BOTTLES OF IODINE IN A HALF QUART OF WATER & POURED IT OVER HER HEAD & LEFT IT FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS BEFORE SHE RINSED IT OUT. SHE GOT HER WISH. IT WAS BRIGHT RED & LASTED ALMOST THE WHOLE SCHOOL YEAR. HER MOTHER WASN'T HAPPY!

We don't eat out much at all and we use the dried beans, too ! Since, I'm loosing weight, my clothes are getting too big, so I'm going to start looking at consignment stores and garage sales for some smaller clothes (and take a tape measure with me).
yard sales=new clothes in my size! Coupons to buy hair color that I cover the gray myself! I usually pay around $2 to $3. These things help! Then when I go shopping, I can buy things I still need. Have a great shopping day!

When I lived in Italy I tried dying my hair with elderberry juice. There were plenty of elders growing wild, lots of fruit in the middle of summer. Italians didn't seem very interested in it. I just crushed the berries until I had some juice and put it through my hair. Left it an hour or so. Note: this is the kind of thing best done naked or in clothes that will look better with splodges of slaughterhouse purple. After an hour I rinsed hair with plain water. Initial colour is kind of very dark purple. Goes blackish brown (or brownish black, let's be fair) as it oxidises. Gradually washes out. Ta-da! Natural and cheap, and fun; probably not something I'll do again though you never know. But I was writing a poem about elder at the time and something that turned up in the research was that Romans had used elderberry juice as a hair blackener.
Mmmmm, beans! Happy shopping day.
