Using herbal teas to help your hair grow can have significant benefits. Each one has their best usage plus you never receive just one benefit from rinsing your hair with an herbal tea mix. Two powerful teas that contribute to you hair health are black and chamomile tea.
Benefits of Chamomile tea on your hair:
-soothes an irritated scalp
-It is a wonderful hair lightener
-Chamomile is also found to be highly effectual in preventing and eliminating dandruff
Chamomile tea has much to offer you hair in nourishment and health. When added to henna and apply to your hair it can bring out natural highlight in blond and dark hair. Jean Valnet, the author of "The Practice of Aromatherapy," highly recommends rinsing your scalp with an infusion of chamomile flowers if you want to reverse any balding. Best practice to rinse hair with the brew after it has been clean and letting it set for an how with a shower cap on. This treatment is so gentle that is can be used for small children and anyone with sensitive skin on a daily basis.
Benefits of black tea on your hair:
-Black tea contains more caffeine than a cup of coffee. The caffeine blocks DHT, the hormone that is responsible for hair loss.
-Reduces shedding to your hair that may cause greater hair loss
- Adds shine and soften hair
-Darkens hair or brings out natural highlights
-Can increase the thickness of your hair
If you hair suffers from shedding this may be a solution for you. Note that most products (especially natural products) work over time. Make sure to wait at least a month for results with the consistent use of the products.
Rinse instructions: Add 2-4 black tea bags, one cup of chamomile tea to 4 cups of water and boil for about 20 to 30 minutes (depending on how much hair you have added more tea and water to accommodate), let it steep for about an hour. Clean your hair thoroughly than take the tea mix and pour on your hair repetitively for about 5 minutes and massage it into the scalp to make sure it is all over your hair. Let it sit for an hour or two with a plastic shower cap over it and an old towel to keep your hair warm and the tea from dripping out the cap. After you rinse your hair with cold water to seal your cuticles and then add your leave in conditioner and style as usually.
