Kombucha has a long history as a natural remedy for beauty. For hundreds of years, Japanese women successfully used Kombucha to keep their hair healthy and thick and to delay the onset of gray color. In Russia and Europe special rinses were made where Kombucha was a main ingredient making hair silky and shiny and giving it more volume.

Having thick shiny hair has always been an indicator of a good overall health. To loose a certain amount of hair, 50-100 strands per day, is considered normal. Excessive hair loss is emotionally stressful and might be a sign of the body being out of balance.

Restoring the body's natural balance begins with the cleansing of the system from the toxins followed by the proper diet, nutrition and plenty of pure water. Within 2 to 4 weeks of drinking Kombucha, due to its strong detoxifying properties and a high nutrient content, you should notice increase of energy and improvement in your overall health. Kombucha also supplies the body with calcium, organic acids and enzymes -- elements, important for the hair to be healthy. To make a rinse, add some of the aged and sour Kombucha tea to the water and rinse your hair. It will make your hair soft and shiny!
