How I do my Black tea hair rinse to give gorgeous Hair Highlights
I have premature grey hair here and there. If I am in a hurry, I’ll get a root touch-up from a parlor if not I sometimes go for henna-ing( no-idea of this word, excuse me for this :P) my hair. And this leaves a hint of brownish color on my hair.Though i am not a big fan of reddish-brown hair, i kinda like black hair. Because it suits me.
Unless it is dead-urgent, I don’t feel it is always right to color my hair with those nasty chemicals. Instead I prefer natural methods. Coloring your hair with natural herbal teas is good choice in doing so. While chamomile gives a lighter shade for darker color hair, Black tea gives a blackish color to the natural hair.
So I like to rinse my hair with Black tea. It gives natural black tint to my henna-ned hair. Let me tell you that though the color that these teas provide you are not permanent any may only stay up-to max two weeks. But the benefits that these teas give you are everlasting. 🙂
Let me show you how I do my Tea rinse to add shine and color to my hair.
>>I add two cups of water in a sauce pan and boil the water till it reaches its boiling point.
>>Then I add two black tea bags into the water and let it steep for 15 min.
>>See how the color changes 🙂
>>After that, I usually pour it in a big jar and rinse my hair after I shampoo and condition.
>>After rinsing with tea, let it stay for 10 min. Usually there is no need to wash your hair or rinse your hair with normal water after that, but if you feel, you can rinse with a jug of water. Apply your regular hair serum after towel drying your hair.
>>Also, I occasionally apply the tea first and let it stay in my hair for 20 min before taking bath. In that case, i pour the tea in a spray bottle like this, and spray all over my hair and comb it to stimulate the hair follicles. This way it increases the potency of the tea to stay a little longer in my hair.
>>You can also add few drops of essentials oils in the tea for added fragrance and benefits. I generally mix few drops of rosemary in my my tea rinse.
