:-) I did my first black tea rinse this past wash. I am in LOVE!! Definitely a keeper!
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))
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
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?
Two tea bags as well
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!
Not too much, I've done it!
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.
How long do you keep the tea on your hair before you rinse it out?
A few minutes. Applying deep conditioner over it is also an option.
what a timely and helpful post especially after i had a not so positive black tea rinse! I linked your blog to this post >>> http://crowningglorymine.blogspot.com/2013/01/black-tea-rinse.html
Your beauty sets are high quality. I enjoy them a lot. Very informative.
I didn't know black and green tea had so many benefits !!! I'm going to try it out !!!
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
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.
Thanks, and happy new year! :)
You're welcome happy new year!
Do you reuse your green/black tea?
No I don't. I use new tea bags each time I do a rinse.
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 . . .
Thank you! I've been doing them since July 2010.
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
Yours does not!! Designing websites is a lot more fun than pouring over my casebooks though haha.
Do you make the rinse like you are making tea and then let it cool off before you rinse your hair?
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?
Yes, I've done it without any issues. It's convenient.
i def prefer the green tea to the black tea...the black tea my hair wasnt feeling too much...i had a itchy scalp lately maybe due to the cold weather i suppose but it stopped it drastically after the green tea rinse...i think i may incorporate it once a month or so and see how it goes..thanks for this tho jen:-) happy new year! im tryna get on ur level this year with my hair lolkim
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?
I rinse the shampoo out first, then rinse with tea.
I wonder if green tea will make a good hair spritz if conditioner is added to it
I was wondering the same thing!
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!
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.
Do you use a application bottle?
No I use a pitcher
Hi... How often do you wash your hair with green tea and black tea ?
I do a tea rinse weekly (every wash day).
Say what now?
