With constant meetings and deadlines approaching you all the time, the pressure to perform is high. Stress becomes the worst nightmare and inflicts more harm on the body than you could imagine – one of which is the constant shedding of hair. Hair loss has many possible triggers, including stress, genetics, an underactive thyroid, and medications for other health conditions. For many people, hair loss may even result in lower self-esteem and elicits anxiety and other emotional concerns.

Keep all those catastrophes aside, as we have a cure for your hair loss – a remedy you might’ve heard of, but never sure of, before – Green Tea!

It has been well documented that green tea will not only cure a myriad of health problems but will also help in controlling hair fall. While green tea has been a well-established ingredient to cut down the body weight, several studies have put forth its advantages that could radiate through the scalp.

According to IJARPB’s study, green tea contains polyphenols and flavonoids, which gives green tea the antioxidant and anticarcinogenic qualities. It also contains a powerful antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which is known to improve hair growth and overall health of hair. Adding to the list long benefits is green tea’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that are potent in preventing hair fall and supporting the growth of new hair.

Benefits of Green Tea:

  • Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties: Green tea has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which help in accelerating hair growth and reducing hair thinning. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of green tea will also improve scalp health and hence control scalp and hair related disorders. Remember that healthy scalp is necessary for healthy hair. Green tea has the presence of Anti-oxidants (Catechins) which neutralize free radicals to keep hair nurtured and resilient. Antioxidants avert hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
  • DHT-blockers: Green tea contains DHT-blockers which reduces the hair fall caused due to over-expression of DHT. Owing to the reason that green tea helps block DHT “Dihydrotestosterone,” halting one of the prime sources of hair loss/ baldness becomes possible.

Correlation between Green Tea & DHT: 

Dihydrotestosterone, a sex steroid & androgen hormone, is the main culprit when it comes to gradual, hair loss. The hormone shrinks hair follicle and also reduces the diameters of hair. Green tea is known for its ability to inhibit 5-alpha reductase, the very compound that can synthesize DHT, the hormone that causes male pattern baldness.

How to use Green tea:

  • Sipping the tea: The easiest way to use green tea is by drinking it. All you need is hot water and some green tea bags or green tea leaves. Add the tea bags to hot water and let it sit for 1-2 minutes. The advisable intake of green tea is at least two cups a day.
  • Topical application of green: To create a green tea rinse, according to your hair length, take water and submerge green tea bags for 10-15 minutes. Go about your regular hair wash regimen, followed by messaging the scalp with the green tea rinse. Keep the rinse in your hair for about 4-5 minutes, and then wash it off. For better results, apply the rinse at least twice a week.

Now that you know what wonders green tea can do to your hair, what are you waiting for?
