There are plenty of ways to change hair colour. Naturally, the most widespread option is to colour hair permanently or to use a tint to colour hair only temporarily. Another way is to use natural products that you surely have either in your kitchen or garden. One of them is black tea. How to darken your hair with it?
Black tea for hair
Black tea hair rinse delivers very subtle effects that get intensified with every another use. The final effect though depends on natural hair colour and its susceptibility to dyeing. When black tea is applied regularly, the colour of strands might get one or maximally two tones darker. If you have fair hair, then application of black tea hair rinse will bring you more intensive effects. Unfortunately, it isn’t long-lasting since it’s washed down together with the next hair shampooing.
What’s interesting, black tea hair rinse adds volume to hair and helps it stay fresh longer. Moreover, it tones scalp and delicately acidifies it. Owing to black tea hair rinse hair becomes soft, bouncy and light. What’s interesting, if you are going to curl your hair, give a try to black tea hair rinse first – the lifespan of curl lasts longer then.
