Green tea contains antioxidants that fight free radicals; stops the growth of bacteria and produces a flavonoid, which fights cancer. But, did you know that green tea is also good for the health of your hair? If you have weak hair or you struggle with hair loss, we suggest you try to treat it with a hair tonic, made of this tea.

Namely, green tea is a good source of Panthenol, an ingredient often used in shampoos and conditioners to strengthen the hair and prevent split ends. Panthenol, together with the antioxidants found in green tea, may help your hair heal faster and restore its strength. Also, this tea contains a fair amount of caffeine, which acts as a hair growth stimulator. You can find caffeine in many commercially sold hair products, usually in those that prevent hair loss in both, men and women.

How To Apply The Green Tea Hair Tonic

Start by making a really strong cup of green tea. Steep one heaped spoon of tea in a cup of warm, boiling water. Leave it to stand for 15 minutes. When the time passes, strain the tea and leave it aside, to cool down a bit. When the liquid is lukewarm, pour it on your hair and rub your scalp gently, for about 5 minutes. When you finish, leave your hair as it is. There’s no need to rinse it with plain water.

If you want a strong and healthy hair, repeat the procedure on every 10 days. This hair tonic has also proven to be very effective in the treatment of dandruff.

Note:  We don’t recommend rinsing the hair with plain water after the treatment, as the tea acts as a hair tonic with prolonged effects.
