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.

My daughters and I enjoyed using this inexpensive hair treatment, we used rooibos tea, since that's what we drink, and afterwards we put the used tealeaves on the roses, since they seem to benefit from tealeaves in the soil (or so my dad always told me, and he grew wonderful roses). We'll go on using this for long-term benefit!

I used regular orange pekoe tea. This left my hair feeling so clean it could be my imagination but it feels like it helped to get rid of product build up. I did add a touch of conditioner to the ends ( i have longish hair) since I was afraid if I didn't it would be hard to comb out LOL I don't think I needed it LOL I think I will have a bottle of this in the bathroom to use every few hair washes.

I liked this easy, inexpensive addition to my haircare routine. I used green tea -- it's what I usually have in the house -- and didn't even bother to let the water fully cool, and my hair still feels great. Thanks!
