Light Hair Rinse

It is important for everyone to use a weekly hair rinse to keep your scalp clean and there are plenty of options for this. Herbal rinses are a great way to keep your scalp clean and your hair looking its best without expensive salon treatments. If you have light hair, consider making the following:

  • 1 tbsp calendula petals
  • 1 tbsp chamomile flower (tea bags can be substituted)
  • 1 lemon rind
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
  • Optional: 1 drop lemongrass essential oil, 1 drop grapefruit eo, 1 drop lime eo
To Make:
  • Steep herbs and rind in water for 1-3 hrs.
  • Let cool and add vinegar and essential oils (if desired)
To Use:
  • Hold head over bowl and pour warm (because cold is miserable) mixture over hair, catching the runoff in the bowl.
  • Massage rinse into scalp and repeat several times. Be sure your scalp and hair is soaked.
  • Rinse with warm water. You don't have to shampoo after, the vinegar smell fades when your hair is dry.
