2. Rosemary And Thyme Rinse
Now, you can give your hair reinforcement with this rosemary* and thyme tea rinse. These two herbs have been used for hundreds of years as a way to darken hair and make it silky soft. It’s a natural antiseptic, which means it’ll keep your hair and scalp nice and clean, and overall healthy.
You should begin seeing results within the first couple of rinses, so be patient. If you’re looking for the darkening effects, you’ll see that it’ll start to do so naturally and subtly.
So here is what you’re going to need:
2 tb fresh rosemary leaves or 1 tb of dried rosemary* leaves
2 tb fresh thyme or 1 tb of dried thyme leaves
4 cups of boiling water
Boil the four cups of water, then place the herbs inside of a bowl and pour the water into it. Allow it to set there until it becomes cool, then strain it. Again, use this after shampooing as a final rinse (you do not need to rinse the tea out of your hair).
3. Ginger Root And Moringa Rinse
If you’re dealing with hair loss or thinning, ginger root is an excellent ingredient to use as a treatment. It helps to strengthen your hair, making it ideal for brittle hair.
It promotes circulation to your scalp, which allows your hair follicles to receive much-needed vitamins* and nutrients to become stronger and grow longer.
Moringa* is another powerful herb that promotes healthy long hair. It provides lots of nutrients and oxygen so that your hair can maintain shine, thickness and strength. It’s great for preventing hair loss as well.
Here’s what you will need:
2 tb ground ginger or chop up about 3 inches of fresh ginger root
2 tb moringa* leaf powder
4 cups of water
As with the blackberry leaf rinse, you want to place your herbs inside of a saucepan with water and bring to a boil on medium heat, then allow it to simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
You should notice a strong gingery aroma when it’s done. Strain the contents and use as a final rinse after shampooing.
4. Hibiscus Tea Rinse
This is another natural ingredient that you likely have seen in some of your favorite natural hair care products. It’s frequently used for hair care because of all the great benefits it provides, such as stimulation of hair growth and getting rid of dry, dandruff-ridden scalps. It also helps to prevent hair fall.
Here’s what you will need:
4-6 cups of water
2 cups of hibiscus flowers or 1 cup of dried hibiscus*
Boil the water and pour it into a bowl with the hibiscus flowers and let cool. Or if you’re using dried hibiscus*, bring the water to boil on medium heat, then allow it to simmer for 20 minutes. Strain it and store it in a clean container. Rinse your hair with it as a final rinse after shampooing.
This summer doesn’t have to result to your hair becoming dry and damaged. If you take the time to care for it, you won’t have to worry about it looking a hot mess.
These tea rinses are easy on the pockets and don’t take too much time at all. Try one or all of these rinses to see how your hair responds and how healthy it will be!
