Not only for digestion and good health, but green tea has also been confirmed to work wonders for growing healthy, shinier, and dandruff free natural hair.
Below are some hair benefits of green tea
1. Stronger Hair
Green tea is a good source of panthenol, which is often used in shampoos and conditioners to strengthen hair and manage split ends. Panthenol, along with the other antioxidants present in green tea, may help in strengthening the hair and making it healthier.
Green tea holds the potential for treatment of dandruff and excess scalp flaking. Green tea is believed to exfoliate the dry flakes that are formed as a result of dandruff. Dandruff is a very common scalp condition and although further research still needs to be conducted, green tea may be effective in treating dandruff.
3. Stimulates hair follicles
Epigallocatechin-3-gallat, or EGCG, which is present in green tea promotes the growth of hair follicles and stimulated the human dermal papilla cells to boost hair production. Green tea can increase your metabolism and a faster metabolism may increase your hair growth rate.
4. Destroys Parasites In The Scalp
Washing your scalp with warm green tea can destroy bacterial and fungal parasites. These parasites are not easily diagnosed. They tend to weaken the roots of the hair, which results in hair loss and hair fall. However, with the help of green tea, they can easily be destroyed.
To stop hair loss and promote hair regrowth, make a rinse out of green tea bags, using it as the last wash for your hair. This will give you quick relief from several scalp disorders within no time.
Here’s how you can make it yourself:
You Will Need
- 3 green tea bags
- 1/2 litre water
What You Need To Do
1. Put the bags in the water for 10-15 minutes and then remove them.
2. Shampoo your hair diligently and wash with water.
3. Massage the rinse well into your scalp and keep it on for 10 minutes.
4. Rinse with cool water.
For best and quick results, you need to repeat this process twice or thrice a week for a couple of months.
This rinse is known to stimulate your hair follicles and treat scalp disorders such as dandruff.
