I'm thinking of adding 1 heaped tsp of sublimed sulphur into a 2oz applicator bottle full of megatek, i might add some jojoba oil to that.

I just edited my question :grin:. That's a hair board for ya. I meant how many parts in the scalp.
I'm trying to get an idea of exactly how much oil folks are applying to the scalp.

Not sure about the amount of sulfur.. I remember Claudie telling me to every 8oz of mixture how much sulfur to add.. I have to check my infomation when I get home.. Just don't want you to mix too much sulfur and cause any problems to your scalp..

The ratio is 2 tsp of sulfur to 8 ounces of whatever ingredients you choose to mix. Hope this helps if someone was unsure of how much sulfur to mix

Regimen: EVOO prepoo, shampoo (sulfate free), steam DC, twist/plait. Wear half wigs. Flat iron at salon about every 4 months or so.
