Wow really? I wonder why green tea would have that effect... perhaps I will look this idea.I really don't know the benefit lol All I know is it felt nice I also add green tea to my henna dyes, and it seems to make a significant difference in the feel of my hair afterward (makes it 5x softer than my henna mix alone). I actually think I used a recipe for a face wash, where the chamomile tea was supposed to be anti-inflammatory. There was a thread posted just the other day about tea rinses, someone found something about it on Pinterest.Fooouund it! pH Balanced Shampoo Recipe AmI missing something (like small print?) or would this not just turn one into a grease ball?Hmm.. interesting though about the freezing, I kind of like that idea.
Oh, trust me, I like natural products as well. Totally know where you are coming from. I just don't want to see your hair suffer using something that could possibly be damaging. I used to use Dr. Bronner's with chamomile tea and something else, can't remember the recipe. I really liked it when I had soft water. Gosh I miss my good water.
I used to do ACV rinses, mainly do them in the summer. I don't measure, but I filled a regular sized water bottle just so it covers the bottom of the bottle with ACV and filled the rest with water. Seemed a good ratio.
I really appreciate your concern for my hair It is so good to have experienced people to consult!
What is the benefit of mixing liquid soap with tea instead of plain water? I am thinking that if I massage something like coconut oil in before washing... then that makes the soap less harsh (in my experience) so maybe a good routine would be... oil, wash with homemade low-poo, then acv.
Is there a filter of some kind that could change your water to make it softer?
You and Curly In The Fog use a much weaker acv dilution than I have tried and that is recommended... I will experiment.
Hmm.. I think I would add a cleanser of some sort to the frozen shampoo. Or maybe use it for more of a treatment, not a shampoo. But I really like that idea of it being frozen, I can imagine it may be a bit easier to apply.
Yes I thought that about the frozen shampoo too... it would need some cleanser! or be like a pre-wash condition.
It is so nice to hear of people using things that are natural as possible... I like the sense of self-sufficiency, simplicity and grounding connection to nature that comes from using things in a more natural form.
