Health and Beauty -- Peppermint Hair Rinse

This is a nice rinse to follow the garlic conditioner.  Peppermint always makes everything smell so fresh. This is especially good for oily hair.

10 T. chopped peppermint leaves
2 pints soft water ( rain water works well)
2 pints cider vinegar

Put the peppermint leaves in a pan; pour in water and brig slowly to a boil.  Simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and infuse for 1 hour.
Strain the infusion and stir in the vinegar.
Pour into bottles, cover, and label.
Use about 1/2 pt. of the rinse after shampooing.

Makes 1/2 gallon

During my school days I had a very good hair but with time I have all that silkiness. Cannot afford to apply oil ads I have to go college. I will try Peppermint Hair Rinse.

Now this sounds way more pleasant than the garlic conditioner! Do you actually use that on your hair? LOL Hey, be sure to visit my new blog, as my old one was lost due to someone else's fraud. Thanks Jane!
