Beauty Day: Featuring Homemade Herbal Black Tea

My Collection of Leaves and Roots
My Collection of Leaves and Roots

This summer, I have been experimenting with hair tea rinses! I’ve been using a variety of loose herbs to create teas, which traditionally I’ve done as a final rinse on clean hair. Recently,  I’ve been experimenting with different uses for the tea. So far, I’ve successfully used it as a remoisturizing spray, a final rinse, a pre-deep conditioning rinse, clay facial and finally, it’s one half of the liquid I use for my bentonite clay mix (I’ve listed my recipe below :)).

Happy Fierce Friday!

Have you checked out my video, “Natural Hair Tutorial: The LOC Method“?

I discuss how changing up my product yielded a different result. Lastly, check out how I untwist my hair for my twist out.

If you have tips to share, spill the tea 🙂

Rethinking Moisturizing Methods

Untwisted Hair After Loc Method

Lately, I’ve been talking a lot about having to switch up my old method to moisturize my fully natural hair. My old method leaves my hair feeling dry; as we all know dry hair can lead to breakage, and I’m too early in the natural game to let that happen!

I began researching other methods to retain moisture.

My old method included using a liquid leave in, a creamy leave in, followed by a butter to seal. Worked like a charm while I was transitioning!
