      For fermentation to take place the lid should be ON! Preferably ferments faster in a warm dark place or dark-colored jar or bottle.

  2. I am so afraid to try this. My hair is low porosity and does not react to products like most people’s hair. And super fine hair as well. So, I am quite sceptical
