You've waited long enough so here it is.
I know some of you may be familiar with hibiscus in one way or another.
 Most commonly used to make tea hibiscus flowers have immense health benefits and make a delicious refreshing drink,

Hibiscus tea with Mint!

 but did you know that hibiscus tea is also good for the hair???
 Hibiscus strengthens the hair strands and actually "piggy backs" when used along with henna to (with multiple applications) give the hair a gorgeous purple hue as opposed to the typical red.

I know you wanna know what to do so here we go.

You'll need about 50 grams of dried hibiscus flowers, to 100 grams of henna
1/4 c lemon juice and water.
First make the tea in a saucepan put about 2- 2 1/2 c water and the hibiscus and bring it to a full rolling boil. Boil for about 2 minutes then turn it off and allow it to cool slightly about 5 minutes.
Strain it and set aside.
In a non reactive bowl put your henna powder and add the lemon juice. Slowly add your hibiscus tea until you get a nice consistency. Remember a few lumps is just fine. Should be about the consistency of yogurt. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place and wait for dye release.
It's just that simple!
If you have tea left over simply put it in a spritzer bottle and sit it in the fridge to use later.

That's the burgundy mix ya'll . You can purchase these items separately or together in our BURGUNDY BUNDLE right here at Butters-N-Bars

I have now started to follow with indigo as I want my hair black now. I have tried hibiscus tea and it is so delicious. Since hibiscus strenghtens the hair stands I have to figure out how to incorporate it in my hair routine maybe a hibiscus hair refresher will be nice.

Tea rinses are wonderful ways to incorporate hibiscus into your routine! Simply make the tea as mentioned above allow to cool until it's warm then simply pour it over clean (preferably damp) hair. Do this slowly to be sure it gets all over. Leave on for 5-10 minutes then give the hair a quick rinse with warm water.
