My Mint Tea Hair Rinse Experience


Hello Beauties,

Hope this post finds you well. This post is about how my experience with mint leaves went some weekends ago. 

A few weeks ago, I decided to try another herbal hair rinse because to me, herbal hair rinses do 'the job', I mean herbs like chamomile, green tea, hibiscus and so on will 'add' to the hair after conditioning. 

Hair rinses are usually the last rinses we add to our hair when we are done with conditioning. There are different types of hair rinses; protein, herbal, sealing, moisturising etc.

I use herbs because of the natural handmade products I make so please do not stress yourself too much looking for herbs to buy. Herbal tea bags are fine!!

Back to my mint leaves experience. Lol.
So I tried the mint leaves and after I fell deeply in love with it because not only did my hair get the minty smell but it felt so good and soft. Oh men!!!


Procedure:
*I used pre packed fresh mint leaves.

* After boiling some water (about 500ml -750ml)  I drop some leaves into it and let it stand for about 5-10 mins.

* I left it to cool and strained the infusion when I was ready to pour it on my hair after conditioning.

* After rinsing my hair with the mint tea, I wrapped my hair with an old cotton t-shirt to soak the water in my hair. My hair became soft and smelled really nice.

So Go On, Try The Mint Tea Hair Rinse and Share Your Experience With Us.

Hope this helped!!

DIY: Homemade Deep Conditioner Updated!



Hello Beauties, 

Hope this post finds you well. 

So, I decided to try out my DIY homemade deep treatment again after over a year of leaving it out of my regimen. The reason why I stopped using the natural yogurt was because whenever I used it my hair broke a bit.
During my last wash, I decided to use Greek yogurt and this time around I experienced the same reaction on my hair. I believe the proteins in the Greek yogurt are too strong for my hair that's why my hair was breaking so I am not going to try it again. I prefer to use my mild amino acids for my protein treatments.

As I always say to fellow beauties, everyone's hair is different so don't be afraid to try out new products or homemade recipes, if you try it and it doesn't work for you then at least you know you tried it.

'Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained'

The Recipe:
Natural Fat Free Yogurt- I used the Total brand which is enriched with the yogurt cultures and tons of protein.

 2Tbs of Apple Cider Vinegar which helps to remove build-up.


Few Drops of an essential oil (EO) of your choice.

Procedure:
* The 'Total' brand of natural yogurt is very thick and creamy so about 3-4 scoops of it is fine.
* Add the apple cider vinegar(ACV)
* Add your essential oil

Mix all the ingredients and apply to the hair.
After the application,cover your hair with a shower cap for 30 mins.
I used my conditioning heat cap instead of using my body heat and that takes 30mins MAX.

Some Natural Remedies For Dandruff



Hello beauties,

Hope this post finds you well. 

Well, this post has been long overdue so I decided to post it tonight come what may.

These are simple steps to take to overcome those itchy scalps and flakes.

1. Take 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar and 1/4 cup Water. Mix in a spray bottle and apply on the scalp. Cover head with a plastic cap for 2 hours or with an old t-shirt overnight. Condition hair in the morning. Do this continuously for few days.


2. Melt 5tbsp of coconut oil in a bowl and add 5 drops pure tea tree oil to it. Massage into the scalp and leave it in overnight. Condition hair in the morning. This should be done continuously for few days as well.


3. Massage 2 tbsp of lemon juice into your scalp. Rinse your hair with water. Do this repeatedly until the dandruff is put at bay.


Please Note: Avoid harsh shampoos that contain sulphates, use an all natural type instead. Shampoo your hair once a month.

Doing this repeatedly gets rid of the fungus causing this condition.

For all natural hair care products please visit our online store: www.sheabeutimia.co.uk 

I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU IF YOU HAVE TRIED ONE OF THESE REMEDIES BEFORE.

Hope this helped!
