Color Your Hair Naturally

Simple Hair Rinse Recipes By Janice Cox

Gorgeous shiny, healthy hair is easy to achieve.  First, the basics:  Eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and get enough sleep, and these will be reflected in the condition of your skin and hair.  Additionally, keep your scalp and hair clean and well-nourished.  You can also enhance the condition of your scalp (and hair) by using easy, homemade, all natural herbal rinses.  Hair rinses will help you achieve a healthy head of hair by booting circulation, cleansing your scalp and conditioning your hair.  They can also be used to subtly add natural highlights or darken your hair.

Natural hair rinses are as simple to create as making your favorite cup of tea.  In fact, several of the ingredients, such as dried herbs and flowers, can be found in the tea aisle of your local grocery store.  You can also use fresh or dried herbs from your garden for year-round healthy tresses.  Here are some simple hair rinse recipes for you to create at home–enjoy!
