Enjoy making your own homemade natural hair rinse

Want a natural alternative to damaging chemical color treatments? Use lemon juice to bring out blond highlights in your hair.

Air pollutants, heat, ultraviolet radiation, dry indoor air, cold winter air, permanents, hair dyes and strong shampoos all wreck havoc on the hair and scalp. Hair rinses can help, and the most effective are those that act directly on the scalp rather than the hair shaft, thus supporting the health of the scalp which provides the hair with protein and other nutrients through a network of blood vessels. There are basically two types of rinses (chemical and natural), the natural being the preferred. Natural hair rinses, which you can make yourself, act to stimulate circulation in the scalp and thereby strengthening the hair, giving it a fresh appearance, nourishing the hair follicle and promoting healthy growth.

Tip: To help prevent split ends, rub olive oil into the ends of your hair 2-3 times per week. For best results, leave the oil on overnight and wash it out in the morning.

Hair Rinse Recipes:

Sage Rinse

1 cup boiling water
1 tsp. dried sage

Pour the water over the sage; steep until it cools a bit. Strain.
Sage helps reduce the buildup of oil on the scalp and promotes healthier hair. Use this herbal rinse after shampooing for 3 weeks.

Birch-Leaf Rinse

1 cup boiling water
1 tsp. dried birch leaves

Pour the water over the birch leaves; steep until it cools a bit. Strain. Effect: When used regularly, this hair rinse will help to maintain the health of the scalp and may even be a good choice for preventing hair loss. It also keeps the hair soft and gives a silky sheen. Contraindications: Do not use this rinse on blond or grey hair, as it may darken the color.

Chamomile Rinse

1 cup boiling water
1 tsp. chamomile flowers

Pour the water over the chamomile flowers; steep until it cools a bit. Strain out the flowers. Effect: This rinse soothes and heals the scalp and gives hair a silky sheen. You can also use the rinse to lighten blond hair.

Linden Flower Rinse

1 cup boiling water
1 tsp. linden flowers

Pour the water over the linden flowers; steep until it cools a bit. Strain out the flowers.
Effect: This rinse is helpful for over-stressed, dried out hair. It is ideal, for example, if permanent or repeated dyeing has made your hair brittle. It also promotes circulation in the scalp and makes the hair grow in healthier. You can use the rinse after shampooing for up to 6 weeks.

For Healthy Blond Highlights

Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup water

Combine the juice of 1 lemon with 1/4 cup water in a glass jar; shake well and use as a rinse after shampooing. Rinse with cool water after 5 minutes. Lemon juice will also help treat an oily scalp.


Prepare a herbal hair rinse the same way you make a herbal tea: Pour a cup of boiling water over a teaspoon of herbs. Steep for 10 minutes, then strain. Message the rinse into the scalp gently and evenly; leave it on the hair without rinsing. Dry your hair with a soft towel. Heat can damage your hair; so try to avoid using a blow-dryer and allow your hair to dry naturally.

Ingredient Benefits:

Rinse with beer to add shine and body: If you want to do something nice for your hair, rinse it once a month with flat beer. After applying the beer, you can rinse the hair with warm water or not, as you choose. The beer acts as a natural setting lotion, giving blow-dried hair increased vitality, resilience and hold. The B vitamins and natural sugar add body and shine. Don't worry: The stale-beer smell will disappear very quickly.

Apply sesame oil to reduce sun damage: The rays of the sun are extremely damaging to your hair, bleaching and drying it until it becomes brittle. Indeed, hair damage caused by to much ultraviolet radiation is irreparable. However, sesame oil can provide excellent sun protection. Message a few tablespoons of the oil into your hair and scalp before going out into the sun for prolonged periods. Sesame oil includes natural SPF (sun protection factor) of about 2,5. For added protection you can blend the sesame oil with 10 drops of carrot-seed essential oil, which is high in antioxidants.

Apple-cider vinegar for silkiness: Adding a little bit of raw apple-cider vinegar to the deep-conditioning hair treatment provides an astringent effect; it works by tightening the cuticle, giving tresses shine and silkiness. In addition, it helps to ensure that the ingredients blend well. Raw apple-cider vinegar which has a cloudy appearance can be found in many grocery stores and is good for all hair types.

Brush the scalp to improve circulation: Give your hair 100 strokes with a natural bristle brush every day to stimulate circulation in the scalp and give the hair a silkier appearance. Regular brushing will also help to remove the pollutants and dust that settle on your hair every day and potentially cause damage.
