Brighten Hair with a Tea Treatment

Soak your strands for high-wattage shine and rich colour, whatever your hue.

What You’ll Need

Treatment 1

  1. 2 tea bags (chamomile for lighter colours, rooibos, for redheads; black tea for dark hair or brunettes)
  2. x2 cups water

Treatment 2

  1. Once a week — or whenever you feel you could use a shine boost — steep tea bags in boiling water for 10 minutes. Let the liquid cool to room temperature. (In a rush? Refrigerate it.)
  2. Pour the mixture over wet, just-washed hair, rubbing it through the way you would shampoo.
  3. Leave the rinse on for 10 minutes; wash and condition to seal in the silky, glossy results.

Beauty Benefit

Tea lowers the pH of hair, closing the cuticle for extra shine, softness, and manageability.
