For centuries, tea has played an important role in health and well-being. From East to West, countries like China, India, Kenya, and Great Britain have made tea an important part of their social and health rituals. The health benefits of drinking tea are well reported, including reductions in blood pressure, cholesterol and weight. What many people don’t know, however, is that tea has numerous benefits for the health of the hair and the scalp. Tea rinses and boosters may support hair growth, reduce hair loss and calm an irritated scalp.
Benefits of Tea Rinses for Hair
Tea rinses of both green and black tea are reported to improve hair growth, combat hair shedding and calm the scalp. Tea has antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties that make it wonderful for boosting the health of the hair and scalp. The flavonoids and polyphenols in tea may benefit hair growth and reduce hair loss.
Reduces Hair Loss
Inflammation is at the heart of many types of hair loss. The powerful calming properties of hair tea rinses may reduce follicle fatigue, calm the scalp, and help reduce excessive hair loss and shedding. The powerful catechin, epigallocatechin-3-gallate, or EGCG, has been reported to reduce hair loss and inhibit certain hormones that can cause hair loss.
Reduces Scalp Irritation
Tea bag compresses are often recommended to calm skin irritation. Similarly, tea rinses can benefit the hair and scalp by calming itch and scalp stress. Those suffering with an irritated scalp and dandruff can benefit from the calming, antibacterial, and scalp-soothing benefits of hair tea rinses.
Caffeine is reported as a natural way to block DHT, a hormone associated with hair loss. The caffeine in tea may be helpful for hair growth since caffeine may boost hair follicles and support hair growth.
Defends Against Hair and Scalp Damage
Everyday exposures like pollution, cigarette smoke, and sun exposure can create free radicals that can damage the hair and lead to hair loss. The polyphenols in tea rinses have tremendous antioxidant activities that allow them to scavenge free radicals and help prevent the damage that causes dull hair, follicle fatigue, and hair loss.
