Susan gives a lots of creative, traditional and crazy recipes and remedies to keep your hair strong, healthy, shining and well styling.

If you want to be eco-friendly try formula ‘No-poo’ that is foam free and natural solution for your hair. Susan provides lots of recipes for this king of formula.
I like the idea of henna rinse and apple cider vinegar as a treatment for greasy and coloured dark hair. Also interesting is yarrow shampoo for greasy hair as well as green tea shampoo or rinse. I have lots of herbs to experiment and Susan gives me inspiration to do and try. Funny are myth about hair, how it grows, getting grey or split or how frequently you need to wash them.

‘Ketogenic diet’ by Susan Hollister is a very fresh and new way of dieting. It is great diet for meat lover’s. Susan provides delicious recipes what are healthy and tasty. Especially worth is to practice to prepare lean meat like beef or pork steak, chicken tights, poultry, fish and salad.

I especially love hostas with beautiful, rich leaves but I just hate when slugs eaten them. I don’t try to spread sand around it, but it looks simple and more natural than blue pellets that I really afraid because kids and animals can accidentally taste.
Also I never know that I shouldn’t cut dried steams of tulips as they may never grow again.So I won’t do it anymore.

I love natural medicine so always have herbs in my garden but sometimes they just too poor and have insects on them. I am looking for more audiobooks by Susan Hollister about gardening and how to naturally prevent plants from aphides, slugs and others insects.
