I went on an ingredients shopping binge over the weekend. Not that I needed anything per se, but the new press and seal (with heated iron) tea bags I ordered had finally arrived. All week long I had been stoked about the herbal goodies I would but to stuff inside the bags. My plan was to create an herbal blend that could be used as a final hair rinse after cleansing and conditioning. This blend could also be used to make an oil infusion to be used for a pre-wash (pre-poo) treatment.
Well, I blended some herbs already in my beauty pantry, plus some that I picked up while shopping and made a nice hair tea. My scalp felt awesome, curls were springy and The Mister loved the subtle peachy smell of my tresses. But the more I thought about the ingredients, I came to the conclusion that some of them were better served in a pre-wash treatment, in which the focus is usally the strands (not so much the scalp) and the treatment is left on for an extended period of time.
So I’ve moved away from the idea of one herbal blend for pre-pooing and final rinse. I’m now in the lab tweaking my perfect herbal blend to used in pre-wash oil infusions, and a blend to create a final rinse. Stay tuned for take 2.
Are final rinses a part of your hair care regimen? What do you use?
