My Thoughts: I remember the first time I attempted to do a tea rinse with black tea. It left my hair feeling hard, tangled and dry. From then on I vowed to never try tea rinses again! However after reading some very convincing posts from fellow bloggers Jeni of JustGrowAlready and Nadege of RelaxedHairHealth I decided to give tea rinses another try. I must say that I was initially attracted to this product because of it's price as well as the versatility that was promised. I also love how quickly it arrived on my doorstep. When I received the product I had a question about the ratio of tea to water and contacted the seller via e-mail and received a very quick, friendly, and helpful response. I tried this product both as a leave in and as an actual tea rinse. My favorite way to use this product is by spritzing each section of my hair with the tea and then following up with my favorite deep conditioner. The biggest difference that I have noticed in my hair besides added strength is how my hair feels when air drying. I used to have rough dry feeling hair and now since using this tea I've noticed that my hair dries more smoothly and is left feeling much softer. I definitely plan to repurchase this product and even try some of their other tea blends!
