Have you been toying with the idea of changing up your hair for the summer, but haven't quite figured out what to do? Try this stunning hibiscus tea hair rinse! First and foremost, hibiscus tea reduces dandruff and scalp irritation, moisturizes and rejuvenates dry hair, and reduces tangles and breakage - yes, please! But making your hair healthier isn't the only thing this rinse can do. Since this tea has such a potent and vibrant red color, it can add beautiful reddish-purple highlights to dark hair. If you have fair hair, it can tint your locks pink! If you don't want any added color, don't fear - this rinse will NOT stain your hair unless you intend for it to!
HIBISCUS TEA HAIR RINSE
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- hibiscus tea bags/hibiscus florets
WHAT TO DO
To enjoy all of the benefits of hibiscus for your hair without any reddish highlights, pour a cupful of normally brewed hibiscus tea on/through your hair after washing and conditioning. Be sure to wash it out to prevent any pigment transfer!
If you do want reddish highlights, make an extra strong cup of tea by tripling or quadrupling the number of tea bags/florets you would usually use to brew 1 cup of tea. Pour the stronger brew on/through your hair after washing and conditioning. Leave the tea in your hair (don't rinse it out) and style as usual. It may take a week or two of consistent use for the highlights to become visible, depending on how dark your hair is. Good luck!
This rinse is comprised only of hibiscus tea, but you could add hair-healthy ingredients like yogurt, egg, honey, coconut oil, or avocado to the tea to make a hair mask. Experiment and see what works for you!
