One Trick to Glossy, Shiny Hair

You can use tea for a variety reasons-mainly to drink it-but did you know that tea can actually balance the pH in your hair create a glossier look? This recipe from Fitness Magazine shares with you just how to accomplish that! My great grandmother said that her mother used to do this. When she died she didn't have a gray hair.



  • 2 tea bags (chamomile, a golden mix for blondes; rooibos, a rich orange for redheads; or black tea, dark for brunettes)
  • 2 cups water
  1. Once a week — or whenever you feel you could use a shine boost — steep tea bags in boiling water for 10 minutes. Let the liquid cool to room temperature. (In a rush? Refrigerate it.)
  2. Pour the mixture over wet, just-washed hair, rubbing it through the way you would shampoo.
  3. Leave the rinse on for 10 minutes; wash and condition to seal in the silky, glossy results.
Beauty Benefit "Tea lowers the pH of hair, closing the cuticle for extra shine, softness, and manageability," says Philip Pelusi, owner of Tela Design Studio in New York City. Tea's natural pigments can also neutralize brassiness for more flattering color. Original Recipe Source: Fitness Mag For more beauty hacks, click the image below! URLSmall
