Our hair promotes our beauty. Healthy and beautiful hair helps us look more attractive and glamorous. And that is why we all wish for strong, healthy and shiny hair. But it takes a little more effort than just doing shampoo, to achieve and maintain beautiful hair. Even though there are various kinds of hair care products available in the market, we all know that using these chemicals may cause more damage than their benefits in the long run. That is the reason; professionals always recommend using natural elements for any kinds of hair treatment.
When it comes to natural elements, everybody knows that Green tea is one of the very few items in the world, capable of providing a wide range of health benefits. However, a lot of people might not be aware about Green tea’s usage for hair care or hair treatment. Today we’ll discuss how Green tea can be used to obtain healthy and beautiful hair.
Benefits of Green tea
Green tea is an amazing herb, rich with many medicinal properties. But what compounds of Green tea can aid the health of our hair and how? Let’s find out:
Hair growth and hair loss
A recent research found EGGG compounds in Green tea. EGGG stimulates hair production and prevents thinning of hair by boosting dermal papillae activity. Besides, Green tea helps increase metabolism in body, which leads to faster hair growth. And Green tea also prevents hair loss by reducing DHT production in body.
Drinking and doing regular scalp massage with Green tea increases blood circulation to the scalp. It helps to reduce hair fall and boost the growth of hair.
Dandruff and scalp itchiness
Green tea’s anti-inflammatory effects prevent the scalp from irritation and inflammation. Scientists believe, this benefits the scalp by preventing dandruff, as well as by blocking psoriasis symptoms. Additionally, antiseptic compounds of Green tea protect the hair follicles from unwanted blockage caused by dead skin cells or bacteria.
Split ends and breakage
Split ends, brittle hair, hair breakage are some of the very common hair problems. Weak and unhealthy hairs are represented by these symptoms. Green tea can be a solution to these problems as it is a great source of Panthenol, a substance needed for moisturizing hair, resulting prevention of hair breakage and split ends.
Oil production of the skin is controlled by its pH level. Green tea works like magic for balancing the pH level of the scalp in extreme conditions. While it acts like an astringent by reducing oil production for oily skin conditions, at the same time it nourishes and hydrates the dry skin conditions by increasing oil production of the skin.
Shine and texture
Shiny and soft hairs are desired by everyone but it is difficult to maintain hair shine and softness. Nutrients like Polyphenols, vitamin C and vitamin E are found in Green tea, who make our hair more shiny and soft. These compounds also protect hair from UV radiation and other damaging elements.
Use of green tea for hair treatment
Now that we know about Green tea’s potentiality to protect and aid our hair, let’s discuss how can we apply it to obtain the maximum benefits.
The old and the easy way

Drinking good quality Green tea twice or three times a day will produce satisfactory results within a few weeks. And drinking Green tea does not just benefit the hair, it also helps to get healthy and beautiful skin alongside its countless other health benefits.
