Herbal after shampoo hair rinses

washing hairYou can make your own terrific hair rinses with some of the herbs and ingredients from your kitchen. All you have to do is make a basic infusion by boiling 4 tbsp of these herbs with 900 ml of water. After the water has boiled let it simmer for around 15 minutes. Remove from heat, keep it covered for around 3-4 hours. The herbs will settle down at the bottom. Strain and store it in a bottle. While washing your hair, after you are done with shampooing and rinsing, just put 2 tsp of any of these herbal rinses in a tumbler of water and pour this water on your head as the final rinse. All types of hair benefit with the usage of these hair rinses.

    I can only shampoo once or twice a week at the maximum and never ever with hot water (which I love but is horrible for my skin and hair).
