    I haven't tried it, but it doesn't sound like it would hurt to try at least once. It's seems like it could be a rather inexpensive "product" to add to a regimen in addition to having tea to drink if you didn't like it in your hair. I wonder if you did any of them often enough if it would change hair color?

    I think I had read somewhere about using chammomile to sort of help lighten hair over time. I would guess that any of the sort of brown teas may help enrich brown hair or maybe darken blondish hair based on that?

    I put green tea in my henna dyes. I originally put water in it, but when I switched to green tea, my hair was 10x softer. I haven't tried it as a rinse by itself.

    I have a boxes of these in my cabinet (bought it when I was on a diet I never stuck to lol) & it would be nice to get some use out of it, but I already take a green tea extract vitamin every day. maybe there's some kind of concoction I could mix up in a spray bottle & use as a leave in or something? hm... 😶

    Sixelamy- great input! Every time I see your posts on henna I get this little tug because I love your hair color! You know the one that says...."Go ahead try it! Wasn't a nice red tinted color what you were going for when you (horrendously) dyed your hair in high school?" I'm still too chicken at the moment.


    Wavelicious, I'm with Nayy775 in wanting to hear back with results!

    You should try it! :) I absolutely am in love with how the color came out, thanks for the compliment!

    So I've been doing this for a while now & I'm not noticing much difference, my hair doesn't seem to be responding in any way. But to be fair I'm only doing in between washes on dry hair before bed & pineappling. I haven't time to do an actual rinse, I'm just using a spray bottle & misting in sections. I will say I haven't noticed as much hair in the comb in the shower though but that could be from me trying to stretch my washes.
