    Here's the recipe I use and it's from the "Curly Girl Handbook" :

    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    3 tablespoons conditioner

    1. mix together to create a thick paste
    2. wet hair in the shower, then rub the paste on your fingertips. Apply to scalp and massage gently in a circular motion, starting at the nape of the neck and moving upward. Linger on any spots that seem tense or tingly.
    3. Rinse thoroughly, then condition

    HTH!

    I've never tried that, but I agree that the brown sugar does dissolve rather quickly. While I still get a good scrub with this recipe, I'll try the turbinado sugar next time. Thanks!

    turbinado is too exfoliating for me. feels like all my skin is being removed. i use white sugar and get the best of both worlds.

    I don't measure anything but I use:

    brown sugar
    honey
    EVOO (or jojoba, I think I'll try castor oil next time)

    My skin feels soooo buttery soft when I get out of the shower. And my lotions just sink into my skin!
