Get Gorgeous Summer Hair with Herbs!

Herbs should form part of your healthy organic hair care regime because they are so good for your locks! Stock up on a variety of herbs that you can use for various hair issues or for some hair TLC.

  • Fight Dryness

Dry hair is no fun because it can make your locks look dull and feel rough. Herbs that make hair much more moisturized include rosemary. Simply boil some rosemary leaves in water to make a hair rinse.

  • Beat Oily Hair

On the other side of the spectrum is oily hair that can leave you looking greasy. Lemon peel, peppermint, calendula and bay leaf all help to tackle oiliness naturally. Pick one and boil it in water to make a rinse.

  • Treat Thinning Hair

You want lustrous locks that don’t have to be nourished with chemicals, right? Some herbs that help you deal with thinning hair include sage, basil and nettle. You could add these to your daily shampoo for a fast fix. 

Herbs can also be used for natural hair color!

  • Go a Shade Lighter

Sometimes you want a bit of a summery glow to your hair, such as golden highlights. Half a cup of chamomile tea herbs brewed with two cups of water will do the trick. Simply pour it on your hair and let it work for a couple of hours. You can also get some sun during this time to speed up the golden tones.

  • Boost Red Hair

If you’re in need of a color revival for your red hair, consider trying herbs to infuse your locks with beautiful autumn colors. These herbs include calendula and hibiscus petals. Boil two cups of water and then add in the herbs. Let it simmer for about twenty or thirty minutes. Use this as a hair rinse every time you wash your hair. You should try to get some sun after a hair wash to intensify the colors.

  • Get Gorgeous Darker Hair

If you feel like darker hair, get the look with nettle, rosemary and sage. In two cups of water, let the herbs boil and simmer for about forty minutes. Strain out the herbs and place their water into a spray bottle so that you can spritz the mixture over your hair an hour before you take your daily shower.
