* A medicated herb with an abundance of natural plant sulfur, silicic and amino acids.
* Helps to heal dandruff, reduce scalp build up and is purported to strengthen the hair shaft adding sheen and elasticity.* Helps to regulate over productive sebaceous (sebum) glands whilst increasing elasticity of the skin and scalp. Coltsfoot stimulates collagen production which makes it excellent for an herbal hair spritz or final hair rinse infusion.
Making an herbal infusion is just like making a cup of tea.* Take an organic coltsfoot leaf teabag and place it in a pyrex jug.* Boil some water* Pour the hot water over the herbs* Let it brew for at least a few minutes* Strain so that you only have the nourishing infused tea.* Allow it to cool sufficiently then pour the infused tea over your freshly washed hair.* Add a drop of honey or Agave to the infusion and use as a final rinse on freshly washed (not conditioned) hair or as a skin toner. It’s that simple.
