Since I have recently made the decision to really concentrate on my hair again and try to grow it out Ive been doing a lot of research on my hair type and what I can do to grow it long, healthy, and strong. I recently have been dealing with a little postpartum shedding so I started researching what I can do to slow down shedding. There are many different remedies Ive seen including using garlic or black tea rinses. Since Im not a huge fan of using garlic in my hair I decided to give to give the black tea rinses a chance.
WHAT IS A BLACK TEA RINSE??
A black tea rinse is exactly what it sounds like, rinsing your hair with black tea. There is a ton of benefits for doing black tea rinses on hair. One of the benefits it has is that its supposed to drastically reduce shedding. The large amount of caffeine in the tea supposed to block DHT, the hormone that is responsible for hair loss. It also leaves the hair shiny and soft and darkens the hair naturally.
I would definitely love to have all of these benefits and I am huge fan of using natural products in my hair. So I have decided to incorporate these rinses into my hair regimen by doing them after every wash.
TO DO THE RINSE:
I boiled 8oz of water and added 5 black tea bags to the hot water. I let the tea bags stay in the water overnight to steep and allow the tea to fully cool. I then put the tea into a plastic squirt bottle and poured onto my hair, concentrating on my scalp, in between my wash and condition. I then poured it on my hair, put on a plastic conditioning cap and allowed it to sit on my hair for 1 hr. I then applied my conditioner mix on top of it and deep conditioned. I then rinsed the conditioner with cool water. Thats how I used the black tea rinse and although Ive only done one and cant really tell the difference in the shedding just yet, I will say that I liked the effect it had onjy hair. I will definitely do it in another week or so..
Have any of you ladies tried this rinse??
