Gone are the days when people used any product off the shelf without considering the ingredients or health effects of the product. These days healthy hair enthusiasts are looking beyond just the label and thinking outside the box in search of ingredients that actually help promote healthy hair growth, one of which is tea!
WHAT IS A ‘TEA-RINSE’?
One may wonder what the phrase ‘Tea Rinsing’ entails… It’s not rocket science, all you need do is simply brew a bag of your tea of choice in hot water for about an hour or overnight (your preference) and then once cooled, you pour the brewed tea all over the hair slowly massaging it into the hair from the scalp to the tips of the hair. Alternatively, one may pour the brewed tea in a spray bottle and spritz all over the hair over a period of days (be mindful of the tea going bad especially if not refrigerated).
BENEFITS OF TEA-RINSING
Herbal tea-rinsing has become popular because it works! Most of these herbal tea products are a blend of different tea leaves like green tea leaves, black tea leaves, nettle and herbs or flowers like hibiscus, chamomile, ginger, garlic, moringa, mint.
- Tea is packed with antioxidants that protect the hair from damage of UV rays from the sun.
- Tea contains antibacterial/anti-inflammatory ingredients that fight dandruff, soothe itching and treat dry scalps
- Tea serves as Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) blockers and thereby promote hair growth; DHT is hormone responsible for hair loss
IS TEA-RINSING A NECESSITY?
Tea-rinsing shouldn’t be yet another thing to do just for the sake of it. The practise of Tea-rinsing can address/alleviate specific hair conditions; most common being excessive hair shedding, dandruff/itchy scalp or receding hair lines. If you find that your hair is experiencing these issues, regular herbal tea rinses have been found to promote hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp, thereby soothing and clarifying it. This provides more nutrients and oxygen to the hair which fosters healthy hair growth. If your hair is not experiencing any similar conditions, there might be no reason to add tea rinsing as another step in your hair regimen.
