    I found that kombucha made my scalp happy, but when I tried to use it instead of ACV, it coated my hair and made it pretty unmanageable.

    That's very interesting. We love kombucha and refer to it as "homemade soda", but I have never really noticed and direct reaction to it. Overall, I think it has helped out digestive health and out immune system health immensely, but never noticed a big change. We just gradually felt better and noticed that we got oje cold per season at most the couple of winters we've used it.

    If you want to start drinking it daily do you need to start out with a small amount? Or does it just have odd effects on a few people? Curious...

    This is red tea, also called Rooibos. Probably available at your local grocery store.

    That's what happened to me at first. I figured it was detoxifying, so kept upping it as I could handle more. By the time I got to drinking a pint a day, I knew I would not quit drinking it. Now, I only get that sensation if I have been exposed to chemicals. For me, the health benefits have been remarkable.

    Healthy friends of mine never had trouble "handling" kombucha. One drank it for the first time after outpatient surgery to get rid of the taste of anesthetic in his mouth. It worked within a half hour or so, from what I remember.

    I brew my own kombucha and have for a few years now. I drink it nearly every day, but I don't know whether it makes my hair grow quickly or not.

    No, it is not the same. Rooibos is a type of leaf tea. Kombucha is fermented tea.

    I would like to try kombucha but I am sure I wouldn't find it where I live. And I am waaaay too cautious to try making my own. +scaredycat...scaredycat...+
    Too lazy to make a new siggy.

    Just in case anyone is interested in fermenting their own kombucha and doesn't have a source for starter, you can buy a starter from Cultures for Health. They have videos and how-to instructions for brewing/fermenting your own.
