How and Why Tea Rinses Benefit the Hair

How and Why Tea Rinses Benefit the Hair

For centuries, cultures the world over have celebrated the healing, meditative and soothing properties of tea and bioactive botanicals.  The ritualistic practice of preparing, brewing and drinking tea is used to treat ills of the body, mind and spirit.  Used as a scalp and hair rinse, tea is used to sooth irritation, reduce hair shedding and increase hair growth.

 

Much more than a warm drink on a cold day, tea is considered to be a healing super-food.   After water, tea is the most widely consumed drink in the entire world.  Tea has been used for thousands of years, especially for its medicinal properties.  


Many cultures have sacred time in each day that is dedicated to the tea ceremony.  The tea ceremony needn’t be fancy or extravagant; but rather a time to slow down, receive moments of silence and calm, and savor the transformative act of consuming tea.

 

Tea to Promote Health and Hair Growth

Tea is used to boost health and combat illness.  It’s rich in compounds called polyphenols.  Polyphenols are antioxidants.  They help remove cell damaging free radicals that can be caused by pollution, chemicals, sunlight or other body stressors.  Antioxidants are key in preventing premature aging of the body, skin scalp and hair.
