Hi! It’s been some time from the last post. I accumulated a lot of things to write about cause my house is under renovation. I’ve been busy cleaning up and ordering around what I wanted to others 😉 The good news is that one of my two gardens is finally taking shape and becoming a “true garden” which for me is a place were not only flowers are meant to be. Fruits and scented plants are a must for every garden and without them I don’t feel like it’s complete.
But first things first: Today is Sunday and it’s 9 in the morning. One of my cats is near my pc sleeping and I finally have time to write about my DIY ROSEMARY RINSE!
WHAT DO YOU NEED:
- – Rosemary
- – Water
My rosemary is growing up finely without any worries, for this DIY I cut some branches to make the rinse. The amount depends on how much water you use and the quantity you want to stock up. The more the merrier in this case it’s not appropriate. Even so if you like a strong scent or you used too much, no problems, just keep in mind that when it’s time to rinse you will use less of it, cause it’s really effective!
Boil the water till you see this white foam appear and then let it boil a bit more. The rinse should be light green/brown. Wait till the oils contained in the rosemary are released and mixed in the water. It usually take half hour for the entire process. You don’t need to stir up anything, so you can relax and enjoy the scent coming from it.
Here is the result after removing the leaves of the rosemary. The water is a clear brown/green and smells great! Let it cool off a bit before pouring it in a container.
I usually stock up my rinse in used plastic water bottles. It’s easier to pour the rinse on your head and good because I recycle too! Simple and really effective, this treatment is highly recommended for hair without much shape and to treat dry ends too. The scent is awesome and as it is a rinse completely natural without artificial addings, it’s gonna make your hair soft and smell great!
HOW TO USE IT: Every time you wash your hair you need to squeeze out excess water from it, then you simply pour a cup of this rosemary rinse of your head… it’s done! Don’t rinse with water again! It has to stay and dry in your hair! Be sure to cover your ends too!
The first time may be weird to smell like rosemary but trust me, it’s gonna make your hair shine and smell like never on the market. I use only shampoo and this rinse now and my hair, after a cut in November and stopping coloring my hair since then, are soft and shiny without using any artificial conditioner. Trust me and try it out!
Hope you like it! Hugs until next time!
