DIY Hibiscus Hair Rinse via Anita Grant

You know I am a sucker for natural recipes.  This awesome hair rinse comes courtesy of Anita Grant.  This quick and easy rinse is great for covering greys and will add a deep rich red stain to your hair.  Ideal for those with red, brown or black hair as a natural hair stain that will work on all hair types and textures.  Along with staining the hair Hibiscus will also strengthen the hair, seal the cuticle and stop breakage.

In a medium sized pot bring water to a boil over medium heat. Add a handful (about 1/4 cup) of dried Hibiscus flowers and reduce heat to simmer for about 7 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool. The water will turn a deep red/purple color.  Strain the flowers out and store rinse a clean air-tight container.

To Use: Cleanse your hair thoroughly careful to remove and dirt, oil and residue.  Pour the Hibiscus hair rinse over your hair careful to saturate your strands.  DO NOT RINSE OUT. Cover your hair with plastic cap then wrap in a warm towel.  Allow the rinse to sit on the hair for about an hour.  Rinse your hair thoroughly with warm water.  This rinse can be used weekly to maintain gray coverage.

Please note: Hibiscus is a STAIN, like henna, and it will stain your clothes, counter tops or other porous materials.  Take proper precautions by wearing old clothes, laying down newspaper on counter tops and/or wearing gloves.
