Is the water from the dryer clean enough as far as distiller water goes for this? Or would you buy some?

Hi. I'm not quite sure what you mean by water from the dryer, but it is the same water as one buys to use in a steam iron. I've seen it called both demineralized and distilled water. I think it may also be referred to as purified water by some. Hope this helps!

Hi there Felicia!
Thank so much for your kind words. I've been to check your YouTube (how I knew your name) and am so pleased you like my blog.
I have actually had several people ask me about doing a YouTube channel, and I really wouldn't mind putting one together with tutorials on some of my DIY recipes, but for now it is going to have to remain on the to-do list. With all of the prompting I have been getting, it may happen sooner than later though..

The link to your leave-in conditioner for this 'wash your hair backwards' tutorial is broken. I'd love to see your recipe for leave in conditioner.
Also, the comment anonymous posted about water from the dryer ... this is a really interesting question, particularly for UK users who find it almost impossible to buy distilled water at a reasonable price. If you have a condensing tumble dryer, the water from the clothes is technically distilled water in that it's evaporated and then condensed (in the way distilled water is made). It has occurred to me too that you could use it. But... I guess it would have washing powder and fabric conditioner in the mix? You certainly wouldn't drink it!!!!
Thanks for all the info. Really helpful stuff!

Hi GillyCreamy - Thanks for your kind words! The broken link in the post is not to a recipe but to a product on my website. I restructured ithe site a while back and regrouped a lot of things, so that product isn't pictured any more. (thanks for bringing it to my attention!)
As for the question of the water, I'm not sure I'd be willing to try this on my own hair, and therefore can't bring myself to recommend it to you...
