DIY: Hair Rinse

12.17.2013
I absolutely love this scalp treatment. It's a nice hair rinse that I mentioned in my Hair Care Share (<--Link) about winter scalp treatments. The ingredients are simple and very cheap.


Ingredients:
2 sprigs of Rosemary
2 tea bags (Chamomile)

Place the ingredients inside a pot filled with water. Depending on how strong you want the tea to be, increase water amounts for tea that is less strong, or decrease water amounts for tea that is more strong. Normally, I just take a bottle of water and use it as the amount needed to put in the pot.  

Once the water comes to a boil, I pour the entire mixture (tea bags, rosemary, and water) into a jar and allow the tea to cool completely.

 I leave my tea in the refrigerator for about a day so the tea will be stronger. In order to use it in the shower, I simply transfer the tea back into a water bottle, and take it to the shower.

After shampooing and rinsing with faucet water, I rinse my hair again, this time, with the tea rinse. What's so great about it is that you can instantly feel the cooling effect of the Rosemary on your scalp (feels like how peppermint feels on the scalp except chamomile is milder). Also, Rosemary is is known to stimulate hair growth and chamomile soothes itchy scalp, which is an added bonus. 

Next, I put my deep conditioner on top of my tea rinsed hair, sit for 30 mins, and continue my wash day as normal.

  1. Good day Shelia! So I tried the above mentioned tea rinse with a couple of variations. I added green tea, as it has decreased my shedding and I also added Aloe Vera juice. This seems to be working grrreat as I have also noticed a decrease in my dry/itchy/flaky scalp. Thanks again for the tip!
