Body Care ~ Blossoming Orange Hair Cleansing Rinse
I’ve got pretty fine hair, and I find that some shampoos can leave my hair feeling weighted or flyaway, dependant on many factors. So I came up with a wonderful smelling hair rinse that helps to stimulate and cleanse the hair ~ scalp, especially if I’m finding it greasy and unmanageable. The only warning: don’t let this hair rinse get in your eyes. It sure stings s lot!
For a 100ml bottle of hair rinse, which will give you about 5 hair washes ~
- 20 ml Apple Cider Vinegar
- 40 ml Orange Flower Water (if you are having difficulty finding this, look at an Indian food market)
- 40 ml Spring Water
- 12 drops Petitgrain Essential Oil
- 4 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
Combine all the ingredients and shake well before each use. Use on freshly shampooed and conditioned hair, leaving the cleansing rinse on for a few minutes. Wash out with with cool or tepid water.
