It’s spring! Pick a small bundle of newly emerged perennial herbs and try this easy, refreshing recipe for a clean, healthy shine to freshly washed hair.
2 cups of boiling water
A large handful of fresh-cut herbs
Rosemary- good for brunettes, adds shine and enhances hair color
Mint- tingly to the scalp and refreshing and cleansing
Sage- enhances color of dark hair and adds shine and softness
Place herbs in a glass jar. Pour hot water over the herbs until they are completely submersed in the water. Cover and allow to steep for at least 15 minutes. After steeping and the water smells strongly of herbs, filter the water through cheesecloth or a strainer to remove all the plant material. Toss the herbs in a compost bin and use the fresh herb water to rinse just-washed hair. No need to rinse the herb water out.
