Tea Rinse | For Naturals....


Tea Rinses 


Hair rinses are usually the last rinses we add to our hair when we are done with conditioning. There are different types of hair rinses; protein, herbal, sealing, & moisturising.



The Current JBCO Challenge has only one downside. Build Up! I'm seeing many other benefits such as softness, shine, & the moisture from wash day is long lasting.  Before I Cowash (According to the challenge rules), I will try  incorporating peppermint leaves into a tea rinse to combat build up. I fell deeply in love with the smell, and cooling tingle from the peppermint oil in my refreshing mist. The Results: Its a refreshing smell and my hair felt so soft. No JBCO residue!

What To Do
*I used pre packed fresh mint leaves from Tesco, you can use any company in a mint flavor.

* After boiling some water (about 500ml -750ml)  I drop some leaves into it and let it stand for about 5-10 mins. If you don't have any fresh leaves, use an extra tea bag for a more concentrated rinse

* I left it to cool in the fridge while I deep conditioned my hair. I Rinsed the Deep conditioner with cool water, then followed with a cold tea pot full of this mix.  I strained the infusion before I  poured it on my hair.

* After rinsing my hair with the mint tea, I wrapped my hair with an old cotton t-shirt to absorb the water from my hair. My hair became soft and smelled really nice!

*After the rinse I follow my Sealing regimen according to the JBCO Challenge. Here are the results of my Bantu Knot Out after the rinse on damp sealed hair.
