Vegan Pan Asian Mushroom Soup

This soup is all about the broth. Layers of flavor come together to create a complex broth in a relatively short amount of time.

It has a strong chinese influence, but it draws from various cultures.

It's great on its own and delicious over rice too. All the flavor is in that deep, dark, unctuous broth.

Love Your Hair with Vinegar

So I've been off traditional hair conditioner for about a week now. Have still been using regular shampoo. The same kind I always use. Baby shampoo. I get it for $1 at my local supermarket.

After I shower and shampoo I spray my hair with white vinegar. I also spray some on my hairbruch. And then I comb it all through. Making sure to remove the loose hairs in the brush often.

After my hair has had a chance to dry for a few hours I come back again with the brush dry and comb it all out again.

Making it a point to brush my hair through at least once a day.

It was totally rainy and humid today. And yet my hair is quite nice. Not frizzy at all. And I definitely have the kind of hair that loves to frizz during humid weather.

Unlike when I used regular conditioner it has bounce and movement and  body. Regular conditioner made my slightly curly hair limp and flat.

I highly reccomend switching from classic hair conditioners to a simple white vinegar sprtiz. It's way cheaper. It works better. It's vegan. It's better for the enviroment. Better for you. And it doesn't harm any animals.
