This is just wonderful! I found it in the book "Ooh la la Perfect Hair" by Susie Galvez. Enjoy!

At first I was going to give this 5 stars but after my hair dried I felt it had made my hair a slight amount drier than with the conditioner I use. (I do have a problem with dry hair and find almost all shampoos and conditioners leave my hair frizzy dry) I used orange pekoe tea bags which happened to have leaves that were very fine that left some bits in my brew after using a regular sieve. (Not so much of an issue). I used the brew warm we are mid winter here. I do find my hair looks shiny using this and maybe even partially hides the occasional grey hair so I recommend a trial. But I won't make this again because of the slight drying effect it seems to have had on me. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Round 01/10.
hmmm, I'm giving it 5 stars even though I do variations on this...I tried it as stated and was like- ok-but preferred making a tea solution with loose tea and using a tea ball...lazy girl I guess;) but works better for me and I can play with blends...hey extra hints here for those w/ any interest camomile work well with light hair to brighten...rooibos for red tones , black for dark ...also herbs can be added for scent, or holistic therapy bennies ;)...I have been doing tea rinses a lot of late...I do not use shampoo or product on my hair and usually do the tea rinse about once a week right now after a good water wash and sometimes a coconut oil treatment...I never "comb" it through my hair unless you mean finger comb...that's how I "style" my hair as well (fingers)-no heat no sharp objects :) it is working well for me...liking the results just fine...I L-O-V-E bringing a pot of tea into the tubby with me ...some for sipping some for rinsing :) ;) :)
Didn't really notice anything special about this - other than it stripped some of the residue off my hair, so that was a plus. Definitely make sure the tea is a little warm or you'll be in for a cold surprise. lol. Thanks for posting! Made for I Recommend Tag Game.
