Dr. Christopher has the answer for most every problem and he happens to talk about retaining your hair color in the Herb Lectures CD’s. Yarrow is the herb he talks about using as a hair rinse for people with blonde hair. He tells the story of women he knew that had beautiful strawberry blonde hair that over the years turned white. His friend came in one day to see him and her hair was back to being strawberry blonde. She quickly mentioned that she didn’t dye it, that she was reading over her notes about using the yarrow tea as a rinse to bring the color back and was so happy that it really worked! Dr. Christopher also mentions on the CD to use Rosemary tea for darker haired people.
As I get older I work harder and harder at maintaining my health and looks. I have never liked the idea of dyeing my hair, I can’t stand the smell of the chemicals and don’t want them seeping into my body. About five years ago I decided that I would start using the Rosemary tea to see if I could maintain my hair color. I had some sparklies back then and I still have some sparklies in my hair but I think I have far less now than I did five years ago when I started using the rinse. This photo of my husband and I, Don is 61 and I just turned 58. I think you will agree that the Rosemary tea hair rinse is working!
Making Rosemary or Yarrow hair rinse is easy. I take 8 oz of filtered water, throw in a heaping teaspoon of rosemary and bring it to a boil. I turn off the stove and let it steep for half the day, or whenever I get around to bottling it. I put it into an empty 8 oz BF&C Shampoo bottle, add a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to it and put it in the shower. One batch lasts me a week. I don’t wash my hair every day, but do shower and wet my hiar and then put the rosemary tea on it. I rinse it out at the end of my shower and let my hair air dry. I love having a natural solution to a real life problem.
