Try one of these homemade hair rinses if your hair hasn’t been itself lately.

For Thin, Weak Hair:

Are you shedding a little more than usual? Try a black tea hair rinse to thicken your hair and tighten your pores. The tannins found in caffeinated black tea are known to thicken the hair strands, giving you a fuller mane. Black tea also works to rid the pores of excess oils, which in turn makes your pores tighter and blocks dirt from entering. Cleaner hair equals stronger hair. For a black tea hair rinse, you will need:

  • 4 bags of Black Tea leaves
  • 5 cups of water

Bring the water to a boil. Take the water off the stove and pour it into a bowl. Steep the four bags of tea for about an hour. When the water is lukewarm, pour the tea over your hair, then tie your hair up and cover with a shower cap. After another hour, rinse out the tea with cool water.
