So it’s been a while since I posted. I took a brief hiatus from my compilations of random thoughts. The reason? I was busy celebrating with those who were celebrating. A dear friend of mine recently married the man she loves. She found the man to whom’s rib she belongs. July 19, 2014 - I had…

Simple Guide to Tea Rinses
I’ve been reading a lot about tea rinses and their benefits are pretty amazing. I thought I would share through this straightforward infographic above.
Why do a tea rinse? Benefits?
Tea rinses can help reduce shedding, promote circulation of the scalp, combat various scalp conditions (ex. dandruff) and also stimulate hair growth because of the caffeine—a stimulant known to block the hormone DHT, which is known to be responsible for hair shedding and hair loss. Black Tea, specifically, is very high in caffeine content. When to tea rinse? 
It is best to do a tea rinse after cleansing hair and before deep conditioning (as tea rinses can be drying for some). 
How to do a tea rinse? And for how long?
Option one: Wash and rinse your hair, pour the cooled tea on your hair and scalp. Leave the tea in your hair for 10 or more minutes, rinse out the tea and then proceed to deep conditioning.
Option two: wash and rinse your hair, pour the cooled tea on your hair and scalp. Leave the tea in your hair for a few minutes, do not rinse out the tea, simply apply your conditioner to your hair and deep condition. 
Option three: wash and rinse your hair, apply your deep conditioner, put the tea in a spray bottle and spray the tea on your scalp. Proceed with deep conditioning. (options via here).
Directions?Add 2 bags of your choice tea* to 2 cups of boiling water* (amount of water & tea bags used will vary on length of hair—use at your own discretion). Then, steep until cool. And finally, strain the mixture before using. 
You can pour mixture directly to your hair and scalp, or you can use a spray bottle filled with your choice tea.
