    Default Clarifying herbal hair tea or rinse

    I am looking for herbs that can help me clarify my hair when it becomes too greasy or yucky from using hair butters and oils.

    I do an Apple vinegar rinse after each shampoo, but I need something stonger. I have search high and low for natural/organic shampoos that could do this job but in vain.

    If anyone knows of recipes or any herbs that could be useful, please feel free to suggest.

    Thank you

    Have you tried a baking soda rinse? Dissolve 1 to 2 tablespoons baking soda in 1 cup warm water. Hope this helps

    Lavender is a good clarifying herb to try. Its used in skin care products to cut oil, and I remember Lorraine Massey suggesting its use for herbal rinses in her curly girl book.

    Have you tried bentonite clay? I love it as it removes all the residue from my hair and scalp without stripping my hair.

    Why are you trying so hard to blend in when you were born to stand out
