Tips for Hair Growth – Hibiscus Tea Rinses, Leave-Ins & Oil Challenge – 60 Days

Good Evening Dolls,

Done with my LOC Challenge, had good results, my hair grew half of an inch, so am extremely pleased plus am now used to moisturizing my hair daily. Had to set up interviews with a few of my girls that joined me, I apologize profusely but have not had the time to do so, so much going on right now but will get to that in about 2 weeks 😀 did not take any photos this time at the end but no worries 😀 will do better this time.

Great to say am back with a even longer challenge this time, will have fun with this one so bear with me 😀

For the past weeks, have been doing a lot of research on the hibiscus leaves and flowers and guess what, it seems it can work wonders for natural hair. Not only do we have a ton of these flowers here on the Island but have them right in my yard, so why not use some 🙂 right.

Will proceed to do Hibiscus Tea Rinses & Leave ins, plus will add the use of the oil in my daily regimen. Am doing this for 2 months because I really want to see if this works for our hair, it is 100% natural so will take some time to see the benefits but am willing and ready to go for it.

To prepare the Hibiscus Tea Rinse for each Wash Day (twice per month), here is what I will do:

  1. Take 5 to 8 Hibiscus flower petals & 12 leaves.
  2. Rinse off and put in a large size pot.
  3. Boil in 5 CUPS of Purified Water for 10 minutes.
  4. Let cool for 45 minutes.
  5. Strain well – Once.
  6. Proceed to rinse hair with brew.
  7. Voila, done and on to protective styling.

To prepare the Hibiscus Tea Leave-In (once a month), here is what I will do:

  1. Take 2 to 5 Hibiscus flower petals & 5 leaves.
  2. Rinse off and put in a medium size pot.
  3. Boil in 2.5 CUPS of  Purified Water for about 5 minutes.
  4. Let cool for about 30 minutes.
  5. Strain well – Twice.
  6. Proceed to rinse hair with brew.
  7. Do not wash out, LEAVE-IN.
  8. Voila, done and on to protective styling.
  9. If there is any left, store in Refrigerator, can last up to 1 week.

To prepare the Hibiscus Tea Oil (enough for 2 weeks), here is what I will do:

  1. Put to warm on the stove 5 minutes, 2 CUPS of Olive Oil in a medium size pot.
  2. Take 10 to 15 Hibiscus flower petals & 10 leaves.
  3. Lightly rinse off, let dry COMPLETELY for 15 minutes.
  4. Crush them all together.
  5. Place in the hot carrier oil.
  6. Leave on low fire for 2.5 minutes.
  7. Let cool for about 60 minutes.
  8. Strain well 3 times, TRUST ME, you will thank me later 😀
  9. Use what you need and store away in cabinet away from sunlight.

 So, those are the methods I will be incorporating into my Daily Hair Care Regimen.

Now what are the benefits of this marvelous plant and beautiful flower, let’s see:

  1. Promote hair growth.
  2. Provides excellent slip and help in detangling.
  3. Silkier, Softer, Shinier tresses 😀
  4. Seals hair cuticles.
  5. Minimizes breakage.
  6. Adds cute red hues to hair if used regularly.

Are these facts? Well we shall see! Will keep you girls updated every 3 weeks, if anyone wants to join in, please feel fee to do so.

  1. A few months later, but how have you found the tea since you first posted this? Did you manage to continue for two months? Would you recommend it to others?

      1. Great. Looking forward to it. We don’t have much access to fresh Hibiscus here unless you know someone with the plant, but the dried flowers are available in health stores.

  2. Sounds good. Please keep us updated! Do the hibiscus petals have to be fresh? Or can I at least wait until they’ve wilted and/or fallen off the plant? I’d hate to tear off the petals of such a beautiful flower while it still blooms.

    1. Hi Dear, excellent question, you can wait until the evening or night because by that time the flower will start to close, just before 6pm, because at night they close and will fall on the ground. If not, then you can wait till they fall and gently remove the petals, will be a bit more difficult cause it will be close but you can do it 😀 thanks so much for asking and do let me know your results please 🙂
