DIY Herbal Tea Rinses for Hair

tea rinsesWhat do you think about a herbal remedy that strengthens hair and promotes healthy hair growth? What if I told you that you probably already have this herbal remedy in your kitchen cabinet?

The three step process:

Tea rinses are a simple way of supplementing your natural hair care routine. Start by brewing two cups of strong tea in a bowl or pitcher. Then, after shampooing, slowly rinse your hair with the tea (you can even use a spray bottle, if you prefer). Follow with a deep conditioner as tea can often have drying properties.

How do tea rinses work?

Most teas contain trace amounts of caffeine that penetrate hair strands and promote hair growth by increasing blood flow. Teas are also rich in antioxidants and amino acids that naturally soften hair, increase manageability and restore luster and shine. Certain teas also contain vitamins and cleansing properties that protect against chemical damage, repair split ends and exfoliate the scalp.
