Healthy scalp, hair-growth, natural highlights, luscious, soft hair…all of these can be achieved with a herbal rinse! Sounds interesting? Then you simply must try some of the following recipes:
1. Anti-Dandruff Catnip Rinse
This bushy herb, famous for the rather weird effect it has on cats can be used as one of the natural rinses for hair as well! It promotes healthy hair growth, balances pH value of skin on the scalp and is a natural cure for dandruff. Want to give it a shot? Simply boil a strong catnip tea, let it cool down and massage into your scalp after the wash. Let it sit for a few minutes then rinse of using mild or preferably cool water.
2. Anti-Odor Tomato Rinse
Chlorine, tobacco smoke or even a DIY treatment went horribly wrong – there are tons of situations in which your hair can acquire an unpleasant smell or even weird, greenish color! Luckily, there are hair rinses to help you with that! Tomato juice, for example, works wonders for smelly hair, helping it regain its natural, normal smell as well as normal color. It also balances skin’s pH and, if left on as a mask, it is even said to help hair grow faster.
3. Hibiscus Rinse for Red Highlights

No need to rinse out or trouble yourself with complicated procedures – simply apply and reapply until you’re happy with your reddish highlights!
4. Rosemary and Sage Rinse for Gray Hair
Natural rinses for hair are not only extremely healthy but could help you cover grey hair as well! And in order to do so, you’ll need to boil a half cup of each rosemary and sage leaves (dried) in 2 cups of water. Let the mixture simmer for about 30 minutes then steep it for a few hours before straining the mixture and applying it to your hair. No need to rinse right away – allow the mixture to dry on your hair, then rinse the excess off. The results won’t be perfect at first but the color will darken after several applications. Use this mixture every few days until you reach the shade you want then apply once a month to keep the color fresh.
