  2. I've tried the black tea rinse.. However my hair did not agree with it.. It made my hair stiff and the texlax hair clump together.. It was a nightmare to detangle.. But I still love the benefits :o))

    1. Black tea stiffens and makes my hair clump together as well. It's absolutely necessary to deep condition after doing a black tea rinse otherwise it would take me forever and a day to the detangle! Just thinking about it gives me a headache lol

  3. I also tried the black tea rinse! But i only used 2 tea bags in 2 cups of water. I did stiffen my hair but it also made it darker. How many tea bags do you use?

  4. I have a weird question. I see that both black tea and green tea have different benefits. You think if I mix the green tea and black tea together I would get the all the benefits or would that be too much. Sorry if that is a dumb question lol!

  5. I am 14 weeks post and have done a few black tea rinses. I have noticed loosing a lot less hair, but I am not sure if it's because I have been wearing my hair in buns a whole bunch.

    I'm still gonna keep trying it though.

    1. Wearing your hair up in tight hair styles such as buns actually makes you loose more hair! They recommend that wearing your hair down puts less stress on the follicle, so the tea must be working.

  6. How long do you keep the tea on your hair before you rinse it out?

    1. A few minutes. Applying deep conditioner over it is also an option.

  10. Just wondering whether you dilute the tea with cold water or wait for it to cool before using it. And around what temperature the tea is before you use it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I generally let it cool to room temperature. If I'm in a rush, I'll add water to it in the shower to cool it down.

    1. No I don't. I use new tea bags each time I do a rinse.

  12. Nice info Jen. I enjoy your infographics. How long have you been using tea rinses? I tried to do them a few years ago when I first started my regimen but it never took unfortunately. The thicker hair claim is enough to make me want to revisit though . . .

  13. On a non hair related note....if you ever want a break from law you can do website templates. Your blog makes mine look like child's play! lol

    1. Yours does not!! Designing websites is a lot more fun than pouring over my casebooks though haha.

  14. Do you make the rinse like you are making tea and then let it cool off before you rinse your hair?

  15. Tried this today (green tea) and I have a quick question. Is it okay to just store it in the fridge until my wash next week?

    1. Yes, I've done it without any issues. It's convenient.

  17. Do you actually rinse the shampoo out with your tea rinse, or do you first rinse the shampoo out and then apply the tea rinse?

    1. I rinse the shampoo out first, then rinse with tea.

  19. Wow. I rinsed with Lifelineherbalstore.co.uk Intense Care Herb treatment and wow was my hair very soft after shampooing with K-Pac's Moisture Shampoo. The downside is that it's pretty steep for a few tea bags but worth trying at least once!

  20. Thanks for the info. I will have to give this a try. I saw that you addressed my question of combining both types of tea, I may try that.

  21. Do you use a application bottle?

  25. Have you ever tried a coffee rinse? Coffee has a lot of caffeine and may not harden the hair. Just wondering if you know of any harmful effects it might have on hair

    1. Hi Miguel, I think daily tea rinses would be a bit much. Certain teas have a stiffening effect on hair.

  31. I experienced a lot of shedding ( i think). I had a flattwist protective style in for 2 weeks. I tried the green tea and nettle combination.( didn't have any black tea). I hope to see a difference in the take down. Thanks for the info.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I used the black tea rinse along with Dr Miracles deep conditioner and it definitely helps with less hair shedding.

    ReplyDelete
  33. OOOOOOHHHHH!!!!! so THAT'S what I was doing wrong lol. I tried it a few times but didn't like it because it make my hair hard, I was using it AFTER I DC'd. I'm going to try it again, before I DC this time. Wish me luck!

  34. Hey sorry if this is a dumb question but i wanted to know how often should i do a tea rinse and can you explain everything in detail please :)

  35. Love the blog! Totally diggin the tea rinses. If you can find it look for horsetail tea. I found it in my local Fiesta.(yea Texas!) Trader Joes has it too. Horsetail tea rinse followed by some aloe vera juice, I don't know why it works but it freaking does. I'm talking next level moisture and makes breakage a distant memory. Keep up the great work

  36. I tried this last week and I love it! I washed my 4c hair with a light shampoo then added my daily spritzer to my hair and deep conditioned for about 45 minutes. I then doused my hair and roots with black tea (i also added some brewed burdock root). After that i kept a cap on my head for ~20 minutes. My hair felt significantly softer afterwards and i shed less hair.
