How often do you buy hair products at the supermarket or drugstore? Do you even check the labels to see how these products impact the environment? The average person rarely does that – usually, the most important thing is for the products to “do the trick,” right?
Well think again. You may not be aware of it but the chemicals in some hair products can be awfully harmful to the environment. Would you really want excellent looking hair at the expense of the environment?
Here’s an alternative – using natural products that work just as well, maybe even better. I found a formula to make your hair look fuller and to get rid of the effects of the sun and wind.
Big Body Hair Rinse
2-4 tablespoons dried nettles
1 cup purified or distilled water
3-5 drops lavender essential oil (optional)
1. Combine herbs and water in a stainless steel or glass pan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, covered, for half an hour. Remove from heat and let cool, then strain out the liquid and discard the spent herbs.
2. After shampooing, gently towel-blot your hair, then wrap a towel around your neck. Leaning over a sink or basin, apply the rinse with a spout bottle. For extra potency, pour over a basin so the rinse won’t drain away, then pour the collected liquid through the hair to use every drop. Do not rinse out. Blot hair dry with a towel.
I think that you can buy nettle tincture from the drugstore to make things easier for you. I mean, who would have the time and means to go walking around looking for nettles?
