Hibiscus + Rooibos Anti-Itch Tea Rinse
Posted on 06 November 2015
There are tons of hair teas and rinses out there to try. Hibiscus + Rooibos tea are one of my favorite combos. The red color is beautiful and the blend is beneficial.
Hibiscus comes in many different varies. I tend to use the red hibiscus (easily available). It is great for slip because it releases a light amount of mucilage when used in hot infusions. This flower also aids in hair loss prevention, soothes the scalp, nourishing the hair, reduces frizz and leaves the hair with a healthy shine.
Hibiscus - Rooibos Anti-Itch Tea Rinse

3 cups of distilled water
2 tablespoons of rooibos tea
6-8 hibiscus flowers
1 teaspoon rosemary or 1 drop of rosemary essential oil
1 tablespoon of ACV (apple cider vinegar)
1 teaspoon of rose hips fruit
Warm the distilled water and pour it over all of the herbs and florals.
Cover and allow to steep until cool.
Strain and discard the spent plant material.
Add the ACV and *essential oil to the room temp infused water. Blend well.
Pour it over the hair and massage the scalp well with the pads of your fingers. Be sure to have a bowl to catch the run off.
Repeat the above setup several times.
You can rinse it out with cool water or leave in on the hair and proceed to styling.
This is a very concentrated infusion for maximum benefit. If your hair is light in color, such as blonde, avoid using this tea as it may cause staining of your strands.
