X-posted nearly everywhere...help needed. (off topic)

Okay, so my High School Senior Project idea is due this thursday, and i'm really having trouble completely figuring out what i want to do. It needs to be fullfilled in ten weeks.

What i need to do is propose a question, and then how i will go about answering that question, and write a research paper/do a presentation on whatever I choose.

Ideas the teacher has told us about have been: Someone's going to be in a wheelchair for a week, other people moved out to see how hard it was to make it on their own, people are going vegan, etc etc etc.

I was thinking about doing something with hair/makeup...but i'm not sure....

Oh yea, and it has to be soemthing I have very little to no real experience in.....


thank you....

You will need
4 oz extra virgin olive oil
3 oz cocoa butter
1 ox beeswax
1/2 vitamin E capsule (optional, but if you want the full effect it's required)


Melt the beeswax and oil in microwave* or double boiler, add other ingredients and pour into containers. Allow 48 hours to cool before use.

* - Microwave. Not recommended. Keep an eye on it, use wisely and at your own risk. Make sure you use a plastic container to melt the beeswax in.

Banana-Banana Conditioner [Nov. 26th, 2004|09:26 pm]

Banana-Banana Conditioner

A healthy smoothie to nourish dry or overstyled hair. I use this one myself when I have the time or when my hair is overly-abused by hair products.

You will need:
2 oz. purified water (water from a tap is fine, but it always helps to have purified water)
1/2 banana
1 tbsp. plain yogurt
1 tsp. honey
1 tbsp. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. wheat germ oil

In blender combine all ingredients and pulse on medium 10 to 20 seconds. Using fingers, apply mixture to hair in downward motion, smoothing as you go. Leave on at least 45 minutes and whilst this is happening, eat the other half of banana(it's good for you). Rinse with warm water, and shampoo. You can skip your regular conditioner, but do a final rinse with cold water.
