Tea Rinses for Natural Hair Growth and Strength


by Sabrina of SeriouslyNatural

Yes, tea isn't JUST for drinking!

This natural hair journey is ever changing as we learn more about what aids in happy, healthy hair. Despite being a natural for over seven years, I am still learning about the plentiful ways of treating and loving our tresses.

Tea rinses are new to me. I've never really heard of them until recently and since I'm not completely clueless I figured I wasn't alone. I felt I needed to dig a little deeper into what they are and how many are using them.

Hair Tea / Hair Tea Rinse


A hair tea/hair tea rinse is simply brewing a type of tea, allowing it to steep and cool prior to pouring it over your hair and scalp. Massaging your scalp with the hair tea is next and this all happens after hair has been washed. There are MANY uses for the tea rinses and there are many types to choose from:

* Turn gray hairs darker - Rosemary and Sage

* Brightening the hair - chamomile for blondes; rooibos for redheads; or black tea for dark hair

* Reduces shedding hair - Green tea, black tea

* Stimulate hair growth - Green tea

* Strengthens and thickens the hair - Black tea

* Helps with dandruff and psorasis - Green tea, Nettle

* Promote hair growth - Hibiscus (This was found through a scientific study on rats - (Journal of Ethnopharmacology, pp 235-239, 2003).
