Lemon Balm Herbal Hair Rinse Recipe
1 cup of beer
2 cups of water
1 teaspoon of vinegar
1 tablespoon of Fresh Lemon Balm (1 teaspoon dried)
1 tablespoon of Fresh camomile flowers (1 teaspoon dried)
Steep lemon balm and camomile in boiling water for fifteen minutes in a non-reactive container. Add vinegar and let cool. Refrigerate. Open beer and allow to go flat. Refrigerate. Do not combine herb mixture with beer.
Warm both the beer and the herb mixture to room temperature in the microwave. After washing your hair, apply the beer and work it in with a kneading motion. Make sure that all of your hair has been saturated and you've worked your whole scalp until it tingles. Rinse completely.
Apply the herb rinse and repeat the process. Rinse.
