Herbs can be prepared in a hair rinse to add shine and life to lack-luster hair, to enhance highlights, add balance to an excessively oily or dry scalp and improve scalp circulation thereby assisting with hair loss.
Healthy Shine Hair Rinse
- 1/2 cup Chamomile Flowers
- 1/2 cup Rosemary Leaves
- 1 cup Nettle Leaves
- 5 cups Water
- 3 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
Place water and herbs in a saucepan. Bring water to a boil then immediately reduce the heat to low.
Simmer, covered for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, cool and strain. Mix in 3 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar. Store, covered, in fridge.
Use 1 cup as a final hair rinse after shampoo and conditioning. Massage into scalp and work evenly through hair. Avoid contact with eyes. Blot up excess moisture with a towel and leave in (or leave in 2-3 minutes before a quick rinse). Style hair as usual.
For added benefit, leave herbal rinse on hair overnight and rinse out in the morning.
