You will need:


Tea bags

(I’ve used combos of black/white/green teas with peppermint & chamomileteas)

Spray bottle




I started using tea rinses as part of my regimen when my hair was in recovery from a period of excessive dryness and breakage (See: Seanna-Kaye’s length retention regimen). I’ve experimented with and refined my process over time, to use a less concentrated amount of tea with the same results. You can get the store brand of caffeinated tea bags, 100 count box for $3, it doesn’t have to be expensive.


Step one cup of boiled water to 2-4 tea bags. When you’re ready to do your rinse, let the tea come to room temp and pour into a spray bottle. Spray your hair after you shampoo and before you deep condition. Spray your hair thoroughly with the tea, working it in good. Don’t rinse it out but add your deep conditioner on top of your hair. Let the conditioner on top of the tea, sit at least half an hour. Rinse out tea and deep conditioner and you’re done! Now, as with anything DIY remember that what works for one person may not work for another. Tea rinses are only one part of what I do to keep my hair in optimal health. If you try it a few times and it doesn’t work for you, no worries, hopefully something else will and you can share it with us!
