Hair Infusion: 8 Natural Recipes to Enhance Your Ends

Are your hair dull, lacking volume? There’s a method beloved by beauty experts to make your hair shiny and healthy. For this, you don’t need to spend a fortune on chemical products, most of whose ingredients seem unreadable to you.

There’s nothing better than mother nature to rediscover dreamy hair by adding a very simple and natural step to your beauty routine that takes five minutes: rinsing your hair with a herbal infusion, especially if you have curly, wavy, or frizzy hair.

Not familiar with hair infusions yet? Let me explain everything! And after trying, you won’t be able to do without the wonderful flower scent that will perfume your hair.

How to prepare your hair infusion?

Making a hair infusion is as simple as brewing a cup of tea. Opt for dried flowers, roots, or plants over tea bags from the supermarket that have undergone a light processing. By using raw plants, you can also better manage the infusion time and dosage.

Once your infusion is ready, let it cool to avoid any risk of burns.

Strain and discard the leftover flowers or plants to keep only the liquid. Then, head to the shower and after your shampoo/conditioner ritual, finish with a final rinse using the infusion. Then dry as you want or let your hair air dry.

Which hair infusion to choose based on your needs?

Plants have a lot to offer and, depending on your needs, your hair type, and your scalp sensitivity, it’s important to know the properties of the plants before running to the shower with your mug.

The hair infusion is perfect for taking care of naturally curly, wavy, or frizzy hair that deserves tailor-made care.

Boost Growth

  • Ginger

It’s known for its numerous health benefits, and there’s no reason your hair can’t benefit from it too!

Ginger is particularly known for increasing blood flow (yes, that’s why it’s said to be aphrodisiac, makes sense when you think about it…).

The stimulating action of this root will promote growth while also preventing hair loss. Experiments show that using ginger in a hair infusion could speed up hair growth by 3-4cm per month compared to 1 to 2cm naturally.

If you have sensitive skin, prefer rosemary.

  • Rosemary

Lacking the warming action of ginger, but just as effective, the rosemary hair infusion gently stimulates growth. It is mainly used for its antiseptic calming properties that help to purify the scalp, allowing hair to regrow on a healthy foundation.

Enhance Shine and Color

  • Black Tea

Black tea, full of antioxidants, will revive the shine of dark brown and dark chestnut hair. It also slightly covers white hair, so it can be useful if you want to hide a few first white hairs without resorting to dyeing.

If you have kinky, wavy, or curly hair, black tea will work wonders, as in addition to adding shine and darkening the hair, it tames frizz and strengthens the ends of afro and curly hair thanks to its complete oxidation.

  • Chamomile

Blondes and light brunettes know it, chamomile is the flower that helps to revive their lovely golden highlights.

Prefer bio dried chamomile flowers, however, if you only have tea bags at hand, they will do the job by infusing for at least 10 minutes, two bags in very hot water.

For a maximum sunny effect, don’t hesitate to let your hair dry in the sun.

Combat Dandruff

  • Peppermint

Delightful as a drink and energizing, peppermint is also used as a natural hair rinse in infusions to combat dandruff. 

Perfect for the shower, it awakens the scalp and reduces dandruff thanks to its cleansing action. 

It also helps oily hair regain a healthier look by dilating the blood vessels.

  • Green Tea

As good for health as for hair, the virtues of green tea have been known for millennia. Enriched with vitamins C and D, green tea prevents dandruff production and soothes scalp itchiness.

You should see an improvement after a few weeks of use.

Thicken and Purify Hair

  • Thyme

Regularly used, the hair infusion with thyme has the advantage of thickening too fine hair. If you wish, you can add one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your infusion to enhance the shiny result.

Thyme facilitates the production of keratin naturally, which will help to strengthen the scales and heal damaged tips.

  • Hibiscus

Absolutely magical for kinky hair, hibiscus is widely used in most African countries. <
