Red hair can be so beautiful, and yet so hard to maintain at the same time if it isn’t your natural color. To brighten your red, brew 3-5 rooibos tea bags or a comparable amount of loose leaf tea. Cool completely and pour over your hair. Leave on for up to 30 minutes, rinse and style as usual. This can be done regularly to maintain auburn or red colored hair.
For brown or black hair, try black tea.
