Sulfur MN Mix

I couldn't help myself. :) I know I said I would do no more challenges or jump on any bandwagons in an effort to keep it simple, but I'm getting greedy.

Doing a sulfur-MN mix has been on my mind for awhile after I read something about it on some of the boards. I finally researched it and went out to Wal-Mart and Sally's, here's the mix I came up with it.


What you need:
1/2 can of regular Sulfur 8
1 tube of MN
2 oz of your moisturizer of choice
2 tsp of coconut oil, optional
2 tsp of castor oil, optional
1 tsp of olive oil, optional
1 empty container
1 comb/ applicator brush
Few drops of peppermint oil, optional
Few cap-fulls of vanilla flavoring, optional

1. Take a can of Sulfur 8 and microwave it for 30 seconds or until the grease has turned into a liquid.
2. Pour half of the melted Sulfur 8 into your empty container. It will harden a bit but don't worry.
3. Cut the square end of the MN tube. Peel back the tube to expose and the MN and squeeze half of the MN into your container. DO NOT HEAT
4. Melt your choice of oils in the microwave for 30 seconds until melted.
5. Add the oils and moisturizer into your container.
6. Blend all of the above ingredients; the texture should remind you of pudding.
7. Smell the mix and determine how much flavoring/peppermint oil should be used.
(I add a half cap of vanilla flavoring, blend, and then sniff again to see if I need to add more).
8. Once you've reached a good scent, apply to scalp in 6 sections.

My mix comes out really creamy like pudding
. It looks so yummy, but don't eat it! LOL

Based on my research, I can use 10% sulfur safely 1x - 3x times daily. Since Sulfur 8 has only 2% Sulfur, I'm safe. According to this website, sulfur has no side effects that would affect me personally. However, if you're using acne medication, breast feeding or curious, you should take a look.

I've used MN in the past with no bad experiences or side effects.

So, of course, I had to come up with a new regimen. A lot of girls on the hair board noticed that sulfur is a little drying on the hair. So I'm officially increasing my co-washes and I'm baggying for 2 hours after the Sulfur-MN mix is applied. For right now, I'm just applying it 1x day and we'll see how it goes from here. This regimen will also show the recent Protein Challenge I've joined.
