July 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #169: Herbs For Strong Shiny Hair

Tip of the Week

Healthy hair is a result of a healthy diet and sensible maintenance regime. Fortunately, there are herbs that can help you maintain strong, shiny hair.

Nettles are doubly useful where healthy hair is concerned. They cleanse your body inside and out and help to remove toxins. Eat young nettle shoots in soups and stir-fries; add them to lasagna or omelets. Infuse dried nettle leaves and drink as a tea or use as a hair rinse.

Herbal infusions make efficient, inexpensive hair rinses, adding shine and condition to all types of hair. Use 1 tablespoons of herb per liter of boiling water and add 1 tablespoon of vinegar (lemon juice for blond hair) to the mix when cool.

Use infusions of elderflower, parsley, sage or stinging nettle for rinsing dry hair.

For greasy hair use infusions of lemon balm, lavender, mint, rosemary or calendula.
