Over the weekend I got a chance to host a DIY hair care class with some ladies from theCityMoms. During this class, I taught the ladies two DIY hair care recipes and I want to share one of them with you all.
One of my favorite ways to keep my hair healthy is by utilizing hair rinses. These rinses can combine a handful of herbs, teas or other healthy ingredients for your hair. I even have an entire ebook on healthy hair rinses! That’s how awesome they are. Get the ebook by signing up for our email list here.
I want to share with you one of the recipes for my herbal hair rinse (yes, I have many versions lol).
Here’s what it’s made of:
- Dried herbs
- Essential oils
Here’s my specific recipe:
- 1 teaspoon of dried Tulsi (aka Holy Basil)
- 8 ounces of distilled water
- 1 squeeze of a lemon wedge
- 5 drops peppermint oil
This recipe is great for those who suffer from an itchy/irritated scalp. In general, Tulsi – the main ingredient – is great for helping with scalp irritations, hair loss, dandruff and premature graying.
- Boil 8 ounces of distilled water
- Add the dried herb to a mason or ball jar
- Add the water to the jar
- Screw on the top and let brew for 24 hours
- Add juice from fresh lemon and peppermint oil
- Transfer to bottle with a nozzle tip
- Apply generously to scalp and hair after conditioner has been rinsed
- Allow the herbal hair rinse to sit on hair for 5 minutes
- Rinse with cool water
- Style as usual
Watch me apply this rinse below:
This recipe will leave your hair super soft and your scalp extra tingly! If you get a chance to try out this recipe, let me know how you like it!
