Place 2-3 tea bags (you can also use loose herbs) in 2-3 cups of boiling water.

Steep herbs in boiling water until water has cooled to room temperature.

Wash and condition your hair as normal then apply your tea rinse last. Don’t wash it out.

Allow the rinse to sit on your hair for a bit, its up to you however long you would like to leave the rinse on, it can be 5-30 minutes or I like to apply the rinse and then dry my hair. I don’t rinse it out.

Voilà, beautiful shiny hair!

  • I am addicted to my nettle/chamomile tea rinse. It leaves my hair so bright and shiny! I was just wondering if you need to rinse it out, or if it can be a final rinse at the very end of the shower. Is there any harm in leaving it in until the next wash?

    • Nettles and chamomile sound like an excellent combination for a hair tea. The hair tea can be left in the hair. There are many options. Hair tea can also be added to your conditioner as part of the final conditioning and rinse.
