This is a delightful and aromatic hair rinse that I'm sure you'll want to use regularly.
500 ml water
20 ml orange blossom water
Juice of half a lemon
40 gram finely chopped lemon peel
Half a cup chamomile flowers
Pour the water into a heavy based saucepan (not aluminium or copper) and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and add the lemon peel and chamomile flowers. Let simmer for half an hour, remove from heat, cover and infuse for at least four hours but preferably overnight. Strain through muslin in to a jug and squeeze the remaining liquid from the plant material. Stir in the lemon juice and orange blossom water. Pour the rinse through the hair collecting it in a basin each time. Discard the liquid when finished. Shampoo and rinse well with water prior to using this highlighting rinse. Dry hair in sunlight and use the rinse on a regular basis to achieve the best results.
