See My Tea Rinse Prep Hack

Tea rinses are an important part of my hair regimen. The tricky part has been remembering to prepare the tea in advance of washing my hair. At first, I tried brewing the tea, putting it into a container, and then freezing it. I would then defrost the whole container before every wash day. I soon realized that was diluting the tea each time it defrosted. I needed to find a better way.

I thought of putting the brewed tea in separate smaller containers. That didn't work. Then I came up with something even better - tea ice cubes! By making ice cubes with the tea I can defrost as much as I want whenever I want without diluting the tea!

Here's how I make the tea rinse ice cubes
  • Fill up a saucepan with about 4 cups of water. This can be tap or filtered water
  • Heat up the water to boiling
  • Take the boiling water off the stove and put two tea bags in the water to steep
  • After about 15 minutes let the tea cool to at least room temperature and pour it into the ice trays (4 cups of water typically fills up about 1 1/2 trays)
  • Let the tea freeze until it's solid cubes before removing it from the trays and storing it in a freezer-safe container

Do you prepare your tea in advance of your tea rinses?


  1. I haven't done a tea rinse in forever. But I do think thy can be effective. Trying to cut down on the many steps of my wash day to speed things up a bit. The ice cubes are a great idea though!

    1. I hear you on cutting down the number of steps. That's why I've started combining some of steps. For tea rinses I do them when I'm also conditioning. You can read more about it in my Why I Do Tea Rinses Post
