Herbal Hair Rinse for Natural Beauty

In order to keep my hair shiny and healthy, I like to make an herbal hair rinse. My basic recipe includes:
  • apple cider vinegar
  • herbal tea
I put essential oils, too - but that's optional.

The basic formula is 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and two cups of herbal tea or infusion. If I choose to put essential oil, I add 5 drops or so.

Why do I do this? It keeps my hair shiny, healthy, and strong. I also use it to problem solve. If my scalp is flaky I choose an herb like parsley. If I want to enhance my dark highlights, I use rosemary. If I want light highlights, I use chamomile.

I wrote an article at Ehow about this on How to Make Herbal Hair Rinses. Check it out for more detailed information.
