About Your Herbal Hair Tea Rinse:
- 1 bag contains over 1.5 cups of tea, enough for at least 4-5 hair rinses
- Reusable cotton muslin bag and wooden mini scoop included!
- For external use only
HOW TO USE:
- Fill muslin bag with 2 heaping tablespoons or up to 1/4 cup of herbs.
- Pour 1 to 2 cups of boiling water over herbal bag and steep for at least 30 minutes covered. For a more potent infusion, allow herbal water to steep overnight. To yield a thicker mucilage for detangling, place 1/4 cup loose herbs in a pot with 3-3.5 cups water and boil, uncovered for 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally. If water is not cloudy with thick mucilage, continue boiling for another 5 minutes. This will not produce a super thick mucilage, but definitely enough for a medium detangle. The next go round, you could add more herbs or less water for desired consistency.
- Strain herbal tea when cool. For mucilage, strain and massage the bag to get more mucilage extracted from the herbs. Add mucilage to a squeeze bottle or bowl. Tip: Reuse this same bag to make a tea that can now be poured into spray bottle for daily refresher.
- Entire Head Rinse:
- Slowly pour tea over wet head and massage the infusion into your scalp and hair
- Catch the liquid in a large reapply several times
- Gently rinse out with cool water or for extra conditioning, leave it in and T-shirt dry hair
- Finger detangle or use a detangling hair brush from ends to roots
- Spray Bottle:
- To use as a conditioner, pour tea into spray bottle and spray on freshly washed and sectioned hair, then proceed to detangle
- Do not rinse out, just style as usual
- For a quick refresh, spray tea on hair to rehydrate, condition and refresh curls throughout the week
Add a few drops of essential oil to elevate your tea even more (Rosemary, Tea Tree, Lavender, or Peppermint to name a few). Refrigerate any leftover hair tea for 7-10 days in a nonreactive container and discard after that.
