My Tea and My Hair

I never thought in my wildest dreams that there is a relationship between my cup of tea and my hair! I mean, why would my thoughts even go there.. This I discovered when I was checking other things in the internet.  It was a good discovery but, then I wasn't  keen on giving it much thoughts or even trying it out. It wasn't my focus then.

So when it became my focus, I decided to embark on this journey of treating  my hair with tea. Well, its actually rinsing...rinsing my hair with tea! I actually tried out Assam tea as I have many types of tea at home -Green, Assam  regular Lipton  and others.

I tried it and guess what? I loved it! I loved the outcome of my hair and I would do it again and again!

I soaked about 6-8 bags of tea with 1.5litres of boiled water over night. I got ready and headed to my stylist. He was skeptical about trying out this treatment, this rinse. He told me, he had never heard about the rinse but if I am willing to use it then, he is willing to apply it.

Here I was, with my tea waiting to try out my discovery. I gave him the instructions on how to apply the tea. I went through my styling routine and behold when I was done, my hair was AMAZING!!  :)  Dark, shiny and very smooth. It even looked better than what you see on most hair products adverts. I was so excited and I was just proud of myself for taking that step!

That has been over 8 months ago and I have continually rinsed my hair with tea. It has remained, dark,with some highlights, shiny, strong, no breakage, dandrruff and itch- free.

It worked for me, that is why I decided to talk about it. I waited all this while to be sure of the effect on my hair. And I would say, I am very satisfied.

This is what you do..

Bring your water to a boil and add 6-8 bags of any tea. I use assam tea and it worked for me but, you can actually use any tea. The number of bags depend on your hair length  I have a long mane so I used about 6-8 bags but, if your hair is short, you can reduce the number of tea bags

You can go to your stylist or even try it out at home. Just  shampoo hair and rinse. Pour the tea  into hair and massage thoroughly to the tips. Wait for 30minutes before applying conditioner. After 30minutes, apply your conditioner and wait for another 30mins or you can even use the steamer if your conditioner is for deep conditioning. Then rinse and style as desired.

Let me know the type of tea you used and  if it worked for you.
