Chamomile Hair Spritz

Well, a Teavana loving relative brought me a bunch of different teas, and with my one track mind, i immediately wondered how i could incorporate it into my hair regimen. And I found this recipe on the internet for a Chamomile Hair Spritz.

The Site says:
Here's a teensy-weensy taster of the benefits.

A great anti-inflammatory perfect for hypersensitive skin, broken veins & puffiness.
Strengthens skin & scalp tissue. Reduces swelling & pain of the skin & mucous membranes. (excellent for eczema, skin rashes, acne, excessive acne, rosacea & allergic reactions).
Brightens highlights in hair when used in a shampoo or as an herbal hair rinse. (see recipe below)
Contains traces of the essential oil called azulene (an analgesic & detoxifier).

Chamomile is a clinically proven anti-allergenic herb that gives off an abundant amount of mucilage, which softens and soothes everything it touches.

Recipe Time:

Chamomile Flower Infusion

Making an infusion is just like making a cup of tea.


Take a heaped teaspoon of Chamomile & put it in a big ol' mug or Pyrex jug.
Boil some water
Pour the hot water over the Chamomile and cover

Let it brew for at least a few minutes
Strain the leaves with a strainer so that you only have the nourishing infused tea
Pour the strained infused tea into a spray bottle or use as a final rinse on freshly washed hair.



Chamomile & Vegetable Glycerin Hair Spritz

Follow the same instructions as above but add

1 teaspoon of Vegetable Glycerin or a teensy-weensy drop of honey (both are great hair & skin humectants)

AND / OR

Add half a teaspoon of flaxseeds to the herbs in the cup and THEN pour the boiling water over top.
Strain the herbs & flaxseeds then place in a spritz bottle.


Chamomile infusions are GREAT for spritzing Locs, soften hair, scalp cleanser and adding a nice soft scent. Herbal rinse infusions provide excellent slip and detangles naturally curly hair instantly.

Be sure to use your infusion within 2 days and store in a dark, cool, dry place.


Well, i made it. I added a glob of honey to it and its working wonders . i really feel a difference! I can see using this spritz as a hair refresher, it smells really nice, and imparts a ot of shine and softness. Has anyone else had success with chamomile? There is a chamomile and honey lemon rinse i want to try as well.

Excellent use of tea. I purchased a tea blend from mountainroseherbs.com called Persephone's Blend. Has to be the nastiest tasting tea ever! It's roots and bark of dandelion, burdock, Oregan grape, Eueuthero,yellow dock, and milk thistle. I decoct it and use it as a mixing liquid in my clay hair mask.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
This is so weird, since I have been eyeing my greyhound's coat spritz since it has shea butter, aloe, and camomile in it! It is all natural and is intended to help her dry skin and coat. I kept telling myself that I was getting WAY too involved in my hair if I was thinking about trying her coat spritz for my hair, but it has very similar ingredients to the spray you are talking about.

I just may see what it does for me.
Growing out my curls. White hair, fine to medium texture but a lot of it. Low to medium porosity. Botticelli curls -- 2c/3a mix. My hair loves protein.

suburbanbushbabe- you know, they said using the tea mixture in a rhassoul clay mask would do wonders, maybe i should try it!

pigreyhound, those ingredients sound lovely, and i am guilty of considering cat shampoo for myself. yes i said it. but hey, many people have had success with horse products so who knows!

I am certainly glad that I am not the only one who would think nothing of putting dog coat spritz in her hair....although I am beginning to wonder where it will all end???! I keep telling myself that this curl obsession is better than an addiction to heroin or Jimmy Choo shoes, but honestly, I am beginning to wonder about my mental health!

What's the name of the dog spritz? Sounds interesting. A whole population of women use Mane and Tail for horses on their hair (not CG).
