Hibiscus Hair Tonic By Anita Grant

Hibiscus is rich in AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and amino acids that provides a tightening effect to the skin without stripping the natural (sebum) oils.

Hair & Skin Benefits:Many Ayurvedic hair oil formulations contain hibiscus.
The crushed dried flowers are used as a hair dye as each Hibiscus flower yields a natural dark purplish dye which may be used to colour premature grey hairs.

Hibiscus contains an abundant amount of astringent properties and is ideal for oily skin & hair. The mucliage (slippery plant
protein juices) of Hibiscus is also helpful when used in a water based spritz to treat weeping eczema and soothe dry skin & scalp conditions.

Hibiscus infusions are GREAT as a final herbal rinse and provide excellent slip and detangles naturally curly hair instantly.

Be sure to use your infusion within 2 days and store in a dark, cool, dry place.
