Tea For Your Hair

Posted on: September 15, 2012


The tannins in caffeinated teas help thicken the hair shaft and make hair appear fuller. More specifically, black tea, a natural astringent penetrates the pores of the scalp, dissolves excess sebum, and tightens the hair follicle. Tighter pores, means the skin is better protected from excess oil and dirt. The combo of tighter pores and thicker hair means your scalp is holding onto the hair better, and more resilient hair means it won’t snap as easily. This causes less hair to be pulled out, or break off when detangling. Tea rinses benefit all hair types. Herbs in this simple recipe can be substituted according to your specific needs: ½ cup dried herbs in 4-5 cups of cold water. Boil the two ingredients for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let the tea brew three to five minutes. Longer brewing will yield a stronger tea. Strain and let cool. Apply the solution to clean hair and rinse after 20-30 minutes. Choose from any of the hair herbs listed below for a great hair tea:

• Chamomile: soothes the scalp, often used for lighter color hair

• Horsetail: high silica content helps brittle hair

• Mint: stimulates the scalp

• Nettle: treats dandruff and stimulates hair growth

• Rosemary: excellent for all hair types and problems, especially hair growth

• Sage: used to restore color to graying hair, and remove dandruff

• Thyme: good for oily hair and dandruff.
