Herbal Hair Rinses ( One for EVERY hair Problem! )

Hey Ladies!

Today's post is all about Hair! I'm going to be sharing a recipe for a hair rinse and different variations to it that you can do according to your specific hair needs.

So you might be wondering what exactly is a hair rinse?
 It's something that you pour on your hair after it has been washed and is still wet, you leave it on for 5 minutes and wash it out to reveal soft, silky hair. Also it's ALL NATURAL...and that's always a great bonus!

What You Need:

* Measuring Cup (microwave safe)
* Spoon
* Herb Sachet with your Herb of choice ( read below for this)
* 1 Cup of Water
* Plastic Container (for storing)

How To Make It:

1. Place your herbal tea bag or sachet in the measuring cup and add the cup of water.
2. Microwave for two minutes and let it sit until it cools.
3. Stir the mixture and then remove the sachet or bag.
4. Now just pour it into your container and it's ready to use.

How to Use it:

Pour the rinse into wet hair and let it sit anywhere from 5-10 minutes. Lightly rinse it out with water.
If you have any leftover product be sure to store it in the fridge.

Now on to the good stuff...the herbs!

 To make your herb sachet all you have to do get either a small circle of cheesecloth or a coffee filter and place dried herbs in the middle. Then just tie it off with some string or a rubber band and you're good to go.

* You could also use a store bought tea bag in you find it in your desired herb.

So what kind of herbs should you use?

Well, it really all depends on what you are looking for your hair...here is a list of a great selection of herbs and what each will do for you!
