diy(rosemary hair rinse)

Here in North Texas, we have had six consecutive days of severe weather. Although I didn't see any tornadoes in my area today, I sure didn't feel like getting out and risking getting caught in a storm. Instead, I stayed home & put together a little DYI for you.
Inspired by the flourishing rosemary in my little window garden, I decided to make a quick and easy hair rinse. When I was a kid, my grandmother would play "beauty shop" with me and wash my hair in the kitchen sink, always ending with some sort of refreshing rinse.
Rosemary is great for dandruff (which I occasionally suffer from), helps to stimulate hair growth & is even known to enrich dark hair, deepening it's color and bringing out natural dimension.
Vinegar is an excellent clarifier. It balances the pH level of your hair/scalp, strips out impurities and as a result...leaves your hair incredibly shiny.

Supplies Needed:
1. Fresh Rosemary
2. Filtered Water
3. Glass Container (I used a Salad Dressing Cruet)
4. Apple Cider Vinegar
5. Kitchen Shears

1. First of all, heat two cups of filtered water to a gradual boil in a small sauce pan. Easy enough, right?
2. While you are waiting for the water to boil, place the fresh cut rosemary into the glass container. I cut two sprigs, each about 3" in length.
3. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, carefully pour it into the glass container, over the rosemary. I did this over the sink for obvious reasons. Now that all the hard work is over, let your concoction sit and cool until it reaches room temperature.
4. Once everything has cooled down, add 1 tablespoon of the apple cider vinegar. Close container and shake gently to mix. And that's're done!

To use:
After washing hair like normal, pour rinse over hair. Do not wash out. Allow hair to dry & be prepared to enjoy soft, shiny and happy locks!
