Herbs are considered safe when added to hair shampoo. Adding a herb such as chamomile to your daily routine can soften and shine the hair dramatically. Tea herbs have been used for centuries for illnesses and cosmetic reasons. While there are many shampoos claiming to restore hair to its best, there are many natural tea herbs you can try first to restore hair growth and maintain its health.

Chamomile

Chamomile is an excellent boost to hair that brings out shine and natural highlights. Use a chamomile mix after shampooing or soak chamomile flowers in a pot with a tablespoon of cider vinegar and place the mixture in a spray bottle to use after shampooing and do not rinse. Use chamomile to remove tangles, strengthen hair, and enhance highlights. Add vinegar to the chamomile to help bring hair back to its original pH balance. Chamomile strengthens and protects against damage caused by chemicals and the environment to the outer layers of the hair.

Peppermint

Peppermint benefits the scalp by normalising oil production and eliminating the look of greasy hair. Peppermint balances the pH level of hair by working as an astringent. Treat dandruff by applying peppermint to the scalp, which will eliminate dryness and itching associated with it because it works as a moisturiser. Peppermint contains menthol which adds a menthol smell to the scalp and releases a stimulating effect. Add peppermint to a shampoo or use separate as a rinse. Hair Tips: How to Have Beautiful Hair advises never to use peppermint oil directly on the scalp. Add two drops to 118ml. of water.

Sage

Sage is a powerful herb used to treat grey hair. The herb is completely natural and chemical free. Herbs 2000 suggests mixing two large tablespoons of dried sage and an equal amount of either black or pekoe tea with a half bowl of boiling water. Cover and cook the mixture at a temperature of 135 degrees Celsius for at least two hours. Remove the mixture from heat and stir. Rub scalp up to five times a week massaging the mixture into the roots. Results should appear within a few days as long as the mixture is being used consistently.

Rosemary

Use rosemary as an herbal tea rinse to fight hair loss, regrow hair, and strengthen hair roots. Use both dry and fresh rosemary plants to create a conditioner rinse. Apply rosemary vinegar and rosemary oil on the hair roots to stop hair loss. Stop Hair Loss Now.com recommends boiling handfuls of rosemary into a pot of water, cool and distribute into hair evenly after shampooing twice a week. Using rosemary will potentially rebuild weakened hair in a few months.
