Healthy Tea and Vinegar Hair Rinse

I’ve mentioned before how much I really like tea hair rinses, and how great they make my scalp feel.  I’ve also used an apple cider vinegar hair rinse to close up the hair cuticle, and help prevent split ends. So recently, I had the brilliant idea to combine both into one healthy hair rinse!

Here’s what I did….

Let the tea steep for an hour so that it’s both strong and cool. I drop a green tea bag in a large mug when I get in the shower on washing day. That way, by the time I’m done with my hair routine, it’s ready to go.

Pour the cooled tea and ACV into a spray bottle and shake. While hair is still wet from detangling, spray the mixture into  the hair section by section, massaging the scalp and pulling your fingers through your strands as you go. Let sit in the hair for another 5-10 minutes and then rinse out thoroughly.

I styled my hair into two-strand twists as usual and the next day when I took them out, my hair was nice and soft and stayed that way for days!

The best part about this hair treatment is that it’s CHEAP!

This simple green Tea and Vinegar Hair Rinse is a great clarifier for hair.

    Whenever I make a cup of bush tea, I always brew up a bit extra, let it steep for ages and then use this as a rinse after shampooing and before the ACV. It also makes a great facial toner.

    @Zuri, just rinse the hair well after you’ve sprayed the ACV. Once it’s dry, you won’t smell it.

    I did quite a few experiments on this and worked out that a combination of apple cider vinegar, fresh mint and green tea are the best and simplest combination for my oily type hair. I put it in my tea tree shampoo and let it mix so I get the full benefit of these ingredients
