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!
