Bring Out the Blonde

For those of you who are somewhat blonde to begin with, here’s a natural way to bring out the blonde even more:

  • Make a strong cup of chamomile tea and let it cool
  • After washing your hair and while your hair is still wet, pour the tea all over your hair
  • Then blow dry or let your hair dry naturally (I suggest blow drying because the heat helps bring out the highlights more)

I do this every so often and I definitely notice a subtle difference each time. Let me know if you give it a try!

 

Calming Chamomile

Did you know that the essential oils and flavonoids in chamomile tea relax muscles to relieve pain and cramping? In addition, chamomile promotes normal peristalsis (the contractions of your intestinal tract that move food along). Chamomile also has a relaxing effect on the entire nervous system making it an excellent choice for stress, anxiety and insomnia.

And an external bonus: when you’re done with your cup of tea put the tea bag in the freezer – that way you have natural relief on hand the next time your eyes are puffy!

Have a great day :)
