It’s so easy to help your hair to shine without using nasty chemicals.
Try these easy rinses next time you shampoo your hair.
Catnip: For a quick dandruff cure, brew a strong tea of dried catnip leaves and boiling water and massage into your scalp after shampooing. Rinse well with cool water.
Calendula petals: To brighten blonde hair, pour 1 cup boiling water over 1⁄4 cup of calendula petals; let cool. Use as a final rinse post-shampoo.
Lemon juice: The juice of 1 lemon and 1 cup water mixed together brings back life and shine to dull hair. Use as a final rinse after shampooing, following with a cold-water rinse to remove all of the lemon water.
Baking soda: 1 tablespoon baking soda and 1 cup water mixed together gets your hair really clean and removes all traces of styling gels and hair spray. Massage well into hair and scalp and rinse with warm followed by cool water.
Apple cider vinegar: 2 tablespoons of vinegar to 1 cup of water gives your hair shine and bounce. Use as a final rinse after shampooing and then rinse well with cool water.
Flat beer: 1 cup of flat beet will give your hair body. The beer scent will not remain once your hair is dry. For extra body, use beer as your final rinse (do not rinse out).
Tomato juice: 1 cup of tomato juice will remove any odour, such as smoke, from your hair. Massage into hair and rinse with warm, then cool water.
