Rinse Away A Bad Hair Day: Three Home Remedy Rinses

Rinse Away A Bad Hair Day: Three Home Remedy Rinses

Most of us are content with our bi-weekly shampoo. However, in order to get that strong and shiny hair we’ve always wanted, there is one missing ingredient: a natural hair rinse.

How does this help? A regular hair rinse with these natural remedies helps retain the amount of sebum in your hair, restores the PH balance of your hair and scalp and improves blood circulation to give you stronger hair. It also adds volume and nourishment and in some cases can even prevent grey hair.

But first, how do you do a rinse? Essentially, a hair rinse is what you do after you have shampooed and conditioned your hair and before the final wash of your hair with water. The process it simple: pour the rinse so it covers the length of your hair, leave it to rest for 3-5 minutes and then wash it off with water. It’s quick, economic and nourishing for your hair.

3 Best home remedies for a hair rinse:

1. Apple Cider Vinegar:  

Apple Cider Vinegar is something that is commonly found in most kitchens. It’s time now, to stock your bathroom with it. This apple cider vinegar rinse is great for creating soft, silk and detangled hair. This vinegar hair rinse also helps remove the build-up of oil and clumps of dirt in your hair that increase between each wash. To create this rinse, mix one part of apple cider vinegar with one part of water. Let the rinse soak into your hair and scalp. Let it rest for a few minutes before washing it out with cold water. You’ll notice the difference soon!

2. Tea:

We’re sure you weren’t expecting this, but tea has proven to be a highly effective ingredient in hair rinsing – green, white, black or herbal. Tea is renowned for preventing hair breakage, eliminating grey hair and can also give you natural curls.  For this remedy you can use either the tea bags or loose tea leaves available in the market. Boil the leaves or drop the tea bag into boiling water. When the water has been suffused with the tea, set it aside to cool. Use this rinse and leave it to rest on your scalp and your hair before washing it off.

3. Coffee:

We usually use coffee for that early morning kick to start the day. But did you know that a coffee rinse can also reenergise your hair. This remedy is great for those with dark hair – it boosts the rich colour of your hair, increases shine and naturally conditions it. On top of all of these benefits, it also leaves your hair smelling like heaven. All you have to do is brew a simple cup of black coffee, set it aside to cool and then rinse your hair with it. The downside with this remedy is that those with lighter hair should be careful – coffee lends its rich brown colour freely to your hair and can often stain blonde or light hair.

You can complement these hair rinses with the Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner range for fully protected, strong and beautiful hair. So get your hands on these simple ingredients and get rinsing!
