Rosemary Hair Rinse

Most of you girls (and boys) probably look at your hair and wish that is was shinier and less frizzy. Rosemary is a sweet-smelling herb which has been traditionally used for medicine. It has also been used for cleaning hair. When chemicals didn't exist, people had to make their own shampoo and conditioner.

Rosemary Hair Rinse

1. Collect some rosemary - a few handfuls will do.
2. Place the rosemary in a pan, and fill with water until it just covers the rosemary - you can add more later.
3. Boil the rosemary until the water colour has changed a little, and it is scented slightly. You can boil it for longer if you want a stonger scent.
4. Strain the liquid into a bowl and throw away the rosemary sprigs.
5. Pour the liquid into a bottle.

The way that you use this is optional, but I prefer to wash my hair with my shampoo and conditioner, rinse it all off, then finish with the rosemary hair rinse. I don't wash it off - it has a stronger smell. If you have any left over, use it within a week.

You should, hopefully, see the results right away! I think that it's always good to try to use less chemicals, and this hair rinse not only smells great, but makes my hair look good, too! To change the scent, you can add in lavender flower heads or rose petals - or whatever sweet-smelling herb or flower you have in your garden!
