Chagrin Valley Herbal Hair Tea Rinse

If you have been following me for a while, you know I love Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve! Their shampoo bars are just amazing and I can not speak enough about them! So let me tell you all about their Herbal Hair Tea Rinses.

This one is the Body and Luster blend and I love it! It makes my hair super shiny! I have tried it just steeped in water and steeped in vinegar. I think I like it better with vinegar, it’s like a one-two punch for your hair! All the awesomeness you already know ACV provides for your hair plus the added power of the tea!

There is horsetail, oat straw, rosemary, parsley, dandelion, nettle, and rose petals in this tea, all organic too! The herbs help restore shine, repair damage, and strengthen your hair. Teas restore the pH of your hair after you shampoo so they are a great alternative for those of you who just hate the apple cider vinegar smell. These teas do not smell strong to me, the smell rinses right out. 

You can steep 2-3 tablespoons in  2 cups of water. Allow the tea to cool before you go rinsing with it! You may use it like you already do the apple cider vinegar rinse (in a bottle and just dump it on) or you can place a bowl in the sink, pour the rinse on and allow the excess to collect in the bowl and repeat. Just keep rinse your hair with the tea for a few minutes. Massage into your scalp and rinse out with cool water. 

You can steep it in vinegar too! Put the tea in a muslin bag (Chagrin Valley provides these with your tea order) and place in a cup of apple cider vinegar. Keep it covered in a cool dry place or in your fridge for 2 weeks. Shake the jar everyday to make sure it really gets infused with the tea! Then when it is ready, strain the mixture for any lose tea and use as you like! The tea steeped in vinegar can stay refrigerated for 6 months. The tea steeped in water lasts about a week or so refrigerated as well.

They have teas formulated for red, blonde, and brunette hair. They also have teas for dandruff, dry hair, oily hair, growth stimulating, and a detangler tea ( I will do a seperate review on this one).

You can get a trial size bag for $4.85 or a 2 cup bag for $15 at Chagrin Valley.com. The trial sizes last for 2-3 rinses and the big bag lasts 10-12 depending on hair length!

Have you tried tea rinses? Will you be trying any tea rinses?
