“Jacobs’s dioramas provide peeks into a world in which reality is presented in such exquisite detail it begins to look surreal.
The artist draws from art history and garden pest control brochures alike to create miniature 3D works of art, viewed through a circular glass lens. Viewers get the impression that they are looking into another realm, simultaneously natural and constructed, familiar and unknown. In a way, we get a taste for a fish’s life from inside the bowl.”
And let me know if you have any questions. Or if I spelled anything wrong.
I should add something about the egg wash though. Egg whites are good for greasy hair, and egg yolks are good for dry hair. When I have enough eggs to spare, I like to wash mine with a mixture of eggs and honey. Trust me, it makes it feel more clean than regular shampoo does.
I need to try the beer + egg combo, damn.
real talk: my boyfriend washes his hair with baking soda instead of shampoo, and he has the most ridiculously soft, touchable, healthy-looking hair I have ever seen on a dude. a++ would recommend, particularly if you don’t like how expensive shampoo is
for the first recipe, i would like to stress that you use Apple Cider Vinegar if you have curly hair. it made a big difference for me!!
i’ve been using the backing soda / acv plan for over a year. i use that about once a week and just massage my scalp under the water during the showers between washes. my hair has never looked better.
I just use conditioner. I have very curly hair and extremely dry skin. The combination makes my hair horrible when I use shampoo. Straight-up conditioner with lots of rinsing makes my hair clean and manageable. Works well with no need to head for the kitchen first.
