Green Tea for Hair Growth
Does Green Tea Boost Hair Growth?
Green tea is a type of tea that is made from the Camellia sinensis leaf. It originated in China, and its production has since spread globally. Green tea is now one of the most popular teas in the world for drinking, but it also has its health benefits, too.
Various studies have shown that green tea may support healthy hair growth, and even hair regrowth. Regular application of topical green tea extract (in serum or liquid form), can boost hair growth and significantly increase the function of strand activity. Consuming green tea orally, can also benefit the hair.
How does increase hair growth?
Green tea contains anti-inflammatory properties that can help the hair to flourish. It also cleanses the scalp, which fends off infections and unwanted inhabitants that weaken the hair strands. This, in turn, gives the hair its full potential to grow.
Green tea is also packed with catechins, which are antioxidants. These compounds have been found to reduce DHT. Thanks to high levels of EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), green tea works well for boosting hair growth, strengthening the hair roots and activating the healthy function of follicles.
Containing plenty of key nutrients, including B vitamins, green tea is the perfect remedy for energising the hair follicles, and thus promoting hair growth. Although green tea can also help reduce hair loss, its main benefit is for hair growth. Many of the top selling anti hair loss shampoos contain green tea, including the hugely popular caffeine based treatments.
How to use green tea to treat hair loss?
Green tea can be used in various forms. The most common and obvious way to use green tea is to drink it, but it can also be used as a topical application (serum, liquid, shampoo), and taken via supplement (tablet or capsule) form. For boosting hair growth, green tea is most commonly used as a shampoo or taken as a supplement.
Studies have shown that green tea can be effective for hair health when topically applied to the scalp, or taken as a supplement. Green tea can be even more effective when taken/used in conjunction with other hair growth ingredients. For example, research shows that green tea extract works particularly well when used with grape seed extract.
