Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Memphis Style BBQ Sauce

    Barbeque sauce is delicious.  We really can't get enough.  Our fridge always packed with at least five different varieties at any given moment.  This Memphis Style BBQ sauce is about as watery as I can put up with, yet it's still thicker than your typical Memphis style BBQ.  Memphis style is usually a spicier sauce, but not 'hot wings' type hot sauce, but rather the heat that sticks to the back of your throat after you've scarfed down the sauce paired with an initial biting vinegar kick.  It's good stuff.

    1 cup apple cider vinegar
    1 cup ketchup
    1 tbsp onion powder
    2 tbsp minced garlic
    1 tbsp Earth Balance margarine
    2 tbsp molasses
    3 tbsp yellow mustard
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    2 tsp paprika
    1 tbsp chili powder
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp dried basil
    2 tsp dried oregano
    2 tsp dried marjoram
    dash of cumin
    1/2 tsp liquid smoke
    salt to taste

    Mix all ingredients over low-medium heat in a saucepan.  Allow to simmer for 1 hour, or until desired consistency.
