Tea Rinse Challenge
We are on the #ghanaianemprezz12monthschallenges number 4 which is tea rinse.
Now, haven gone through the Scalp Massage, no Comb and hot oil treatments, we want to ensure that our hair is strengthened as well as minimize shedding as we enter the rain season. The tea rinse helps to stop shedding and keep it under control.
If you've not done a tea rinse before, you can start off with the usual black tea we drink to see how your hair responses to it. If you experience hardness, then, follow up with a moisturizing deep conditioner. The black tea acts a sort of protein treatment as I mentioned in one of the posts which causes the hardness.
If you don't wish to go through this route, you can use green tea or any other tea. Green tea and other teas are equally very effective in combating shedding.
You can do the tea rinse at least once a week. You can also pour it our your cornrows or weaves too.
You can brew all the teas together and keep it down throughout the month to reduce time in preparation. All you need to do is bring water to a boil, add the tea bag and allow it to brew for some time. Let it cool down and use it after shampoo or after deep conditioning.
For black tea, I'll advise it's used after shampoo and followed by the deep conditioner.
Some also use a tea based leave in which is acceptable. You can also spray the tea on as a prepoo treatment.
Use the tea in different ways and figure out your preferred method.
