Tea Rinsing

Tea Rinsing

For Longer, Stronger , Healthier hair… with ROOT2TiP

What is it?
Tea rinsing, in its simplest form, is the brewing of a large cup of your tea of choice… Green, Bamboo or a powerful Ayurvedic blend of herbs, to be used as a beautifying tonic to rinse over your strands.

Why do it?
Herbal teas are chock-full of healthy anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that have a powerful effect on your hair and scalp in the same way they do for your body. Incorporating this step into a healthy hair regime can greatly benefit your hair’s health.

Tea choices?
Caffeine credits:
Black tea and Green tea both contain caffeine that assists in blocking the hormone DHT that is responsible for hair shedding. Green tea is also a stimulant for hair growth!

Bamboo brilliance
Bamboo tea is amazing as it contains an abundance of the hair loving ingredient Silica that strengthens your hair and nails.

Amazing Ayurveda
Ayurvedic herbal teas mixes are the secret to lustrous hair growth in the Asian culture. Herbs like Amla, Maka and Brahmi, promise to strengthen the hair roots, encourage thicker growth and dark dense roots.

Benefits 😉

  • Eliminate dandruff
  • Stop Shedding
  • Strengthen strands
  • Softer hair

Hair-how-to?
Tea-rinsing can sometimes make the hair dry, to eliminate this, follow these 3 steps to Tea-rinse perfection…

1. Pre-oil your hair

Use the Root Energizer to massage your scalp with the night before, this potent Ayurvedic scalp oil, nourishes a dry scalp and stimulates the follicles to assist with hair growth. Cover the rest of your hair with Olive oil and apply a plastic cap, in the morning rinse your hair with your shampoo or conditioner.

2. Brew it!

In a small jug add your tea or herbal mix and fill with hot water (mix no more than 2 teaspoons of the Ayurvedic herbs to make your rinse.) Steep the tea for 5-10 minutes, let it cool, then strain.

3. Tea-rinse & Condition

Pour the tea over your hair slowly and avoid manipulation for 5 minutes. (This step applies to Ayurvedic tea rinsing in particular)

Lastly rinse and follow up with a Deep conditioner of your choosing.

Try to Tea-rinse at least 1 x a month for to see real benefits and be consistent!

If you try Black tea rinsing and do not like it, try something else, maybe Ayurvedic, maybe nettle there is a tea blend out there just for your hair, so don’t give up and give it a try!

I really enjoyed using the harvest hair growth pack especially the grow it long hair serum.
In under 3 months my hair became thicker and noticed hair growth too
This is a very good natural hair brand to use.
Thank you

Honey rain juice

A product we simply love, by far the best detangler available ✨

Honey Rain Hair Juice

Used it on my Grandaughters hair, brilliant! After years of trying to find something that works it is great.

Gentle relief

Current using this products on my braids. Gives me great relief in those hard to reach places. Light and refreshing on my scalp.

Seals the hair well

So I bought this solely for heat protection when blowdrying my girls hair. So due to them having different textures and absorption levels, I noticed that less can be more. The whip is a good texture and the Shea is prominent and you can feel it. It seals the hair very well and doesn't leave a residue or white shine. I say less is more as my daughter with thicker hair didn't need as much as her hair responded well to absorption, and I wanted to avoid that heaviness that Shea can add to the hair. My other daughter has not as thick hair and needed less and the product did not sit on her hair and was absorbed well. So far I'm happy with product.
