Has your hair ever felt overly greasy?

Do you wash your hair so infrequently that when wash day arrives you have product residue on your scalp and caked butters and oils on your strands?

Have you used multiple products during a styling session in order to make your hair achieve a certain look or feel, and while your style may have been on point, in the end you’re left with white flakes?

Other contributions to build up on your scalp include environmental pollution, hard water, regular use of shampoos and other hair styling gels, sprays, etc.

Beauty Day: Featuring Homemade Herbal Black Tea

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 :)).
