Brighten Locks with a Tea Treatment

Soak your strands for high-wattage shine and rich color, whatever your hue.

What You Need
2 tea bags (chamomile, a golden mix for blondes; rooibos, a rich orange for redheads; or black tea, dark for brunettes)
2 cups water

1. Once a week -- or whenever you feel you could use a shine boost -- steep tea bags in boiling water for 10 minutes. Let the liquid cool to room temperature. (In a rush? Refrigerate it.)

2. Pour the mixture over wet, just-washed hair, rubbing it through the way you would shampoo.

3. Leave the rinse on for 10 minutes; wash and condition to seal in the silky, glossy results.

Beauty Benefit
"Tea lowers the pH of hair, closing the cuticle for extra shine, softness, and manageability," says Philip Pelusi, owner of Tela Design Studio in New York City. Tea's natural pigments can also neutralize brassiness for more flattering color.

Wow- I have never heard of this before! I wonder if it actually works. It always amazes me how versatile tea is though and how awesome it is for pretty much EVERYTHING.

I found this a little while back- 7 Uses for Tea, and I just realised it includes the same tip!

I've been using a lightening shampoo that contains Chamomile,so it makes sense the teas would work because Chamomile tea is just that ...straight Chamomile...

I also seen a article not to long ago for a natural chemical free tan is to steep and cool tea and put that into a spray bottle and spray yourself for a natural tanned look.

I knew its good for fertilizer I've been watering my plants with tea for a really long time now...

Some of the others you posted I did not know!

The power of natural products always amazes me :)

Great tips!! on Aug 09, 2012 @ 02:29 pm

I'm going to give this tea hair shine a try just as soon as I can pick up some black tea. I wonder what would happen if you were to use say the chamomile on dark hair. If any one tries this let me know what happened, I'm to chicken to try it myself.LOL
