Comfrey is rich in allantoin, which promotes natural cellular regeneration, and has a conditioning effect on the hair and scalp. Calendula nurtures the scalp and is a great rinse for hair alongside horsetail, which enhances hair shine. This easy-to-make hair tonic nourishes both the scalp and hair, restoring your hair’s natural vitality.
- 3 tsp dried calendula,

Makes 1 treatment
- Make an infusion by pouring 1⁄3 cup boiling water over the herbs.
- Leave to stand and cool for 20 minutes, then strain through a sieve into a bowl. Discard the herbs.
- Mix the strained liquid with your shampoo up to a maximum ratio of 50 percent. The more infusion you add, the thinner the shampoo will be. Use any excess infusion as the final rinse for the hair.
