This is a better “No-Poo” method than Baking Soda. Much gentler, more cleansing and totally biodegradable. It is an all plant, all natural shampoo combination containing no chemicals or synthetic detergents for the ultimate in gentle plant based shampoo. I’ve only added natural hair cleansing and hair healthy plants to this shampoo tea.
Organic Yucca is THE hair cleanser for traditional Navajo peoples and it is said to cleanse hair and encourage hair growth. It is also used to help prevent hair fall or loss. It may work by helping the scalp remain healthy because it works as an anti-inflammatory.
Organic Soapwort in a gentle cleansing plant that grows in North America as well as Europe. It is a natural plant that lathers, cleanses and provides a mild antifungal. It is said that soapwort was used to wash the shroud of Turin it is that gentle yet still cleansing. It is used for thinning hair and itchy scalp. It does not strip hair.
Soap Nuts is called Reetha (Ritha) in India and is used to promote hair growth, strengthen hair follicles, cleanse and shine hair. is most often used in combination with several other herbs to make a traditional hair cleansing powder in India. It is said to

There are several ways this will work. You can make a tea or use directly on your hair.
To make a tea, you can use a cup of boiling water and a tablespoon of powder, allow to steep until cool. It is ready to be used. Pour tea over well wetted hair, work into scalp and hair. There won’t be much in the way of suds, if any, but it really does clean hair. Rinse.
Other ways to make tea is put a cup of warm water in a jar and a tablespoon of shampoo tea powder (more or less depending on hair length, shake vigorously and you can use it now (but it won’t be as strong) or leave over night and use as above. It will last up to three days in the fridge.
Another way you might want to try if you are a busy is just sprinkling the powder onto your wet hair, work in and rinse off.
You can follow with a conditioner and/or rinse with a cup of distilled water and ACV mix. The ACV ratio to water should be no more than 10% ACV. I buy a gallon of distilled water, pour 1/2 a cup of ACV into the gallon, store under my bathroom sink and after I’ve washed my hair pour about a cup of ACV/Water mix over my hair. It softens my hair nicely, rinsing away any minerals from the water. Especially good when you have hard water. The ACV smooths the hair cuticles and leaves your hair at a nice Ph.

This shampoo tea is incredible. I haven’t washed my hair with traditional shampoo in almost a year, and this shampoo is the perfect balance of having cleaning power but not being harsh in the slightest. At first I would make a tea out of this and let it cool and pour it over my scalp and work it in. The only thing I didn’t like about this is that the little granules that didn’t dissolve would stay in my hair for a day or so and it looked like I just went to the beach 😄 I found a way that I prefer to wash with this: put the tea in a teabag or cheesecloth and pour hot water over it, letting it steep until fully cooled. Shake well, and squeeze well. Then I pour this into a large salad bowl and dip all my hair into it and get a good soak and work it all in for several minutes. I then pour it over my scalp before rinsing it all away. This works so perfect I won’t ever return to normal shampoo with weird ingredients in it. When I use this shampoo my hair is clean, soft, and it makes my curls POP! It is gentle on my scalp and gentle on my hair that needs as much moisture as it can get in the Arizona desert. I only need to wash my hair once every 2 weeks with this shampoo because it doesn’t strip the oils from my hair and mess up the balance, making my hair too greasy. Not at all! The smell is wonderful and lightly earthy. It reminds me of hiking in the woods with moss and crisp water all around. Please never stop making this shampoo tea as it is truly magic for your hair!!!!

For a totally natural shampoo this cleanses very well. Its tricky to rinse out every last particle however any remaining haven’t made my scalp itch. Great shine and non drying on my thick curls.

Still love this shampoo after half a year! Best I have ever used for keeping my scalp clean and comfortable. Doesn’t strip your hair either, just leaves it clean.

No-Poo Poo Tea Rinse is wonderful! My hair is very curly and usually dry. Using this product really cleans, shines and makes my hair so soft! And I love that you can either do a quick wash or a hair mask!

I have been suffering with psoriatic dandruff for about five years now, the last six months the worst ever. This tea has seen about three days of use, but my head hasn’t been this happy for many moons! I may be looking for a larger size!

I’ve been losing my typically long, strong super thick hair. It’s awful. So I’ve been trying the no-poo thing, but finding baking soda and other solutions too drying. This tea is awesome. I use it once a week at most and my hair feels clean but not stripped. Lots of body and a happy scalp. Love it.
