Healthy Hair Ingredient | Going Green With Green Tea For Natural Hair

Going Green With Green Tea For Natural Hair
Let me just say that I absolutely love using green tea as my treatment for my excessive hair shed fall I have had since the end of December! I have tried garlic, black tea, protein treatments, and now I am using green tea...which I absolutely love!

What are the benefits?

  • loaded with pathenol (humectant, emollient, glossifier, detangler and moisturizing agent)
  • strengthen the hair strands and to mend split ends
  • promote hair growth and reduces the amounts of hair shed
  • high amount of antioxidants
  • prevent common problems like dry scalp and dandruff
  • smooth and shiny hair

Besides black tea, green tea was the other tea I had in my cabinet. I also enjoy a cup of green tea daily and did not know that this herb is great for the hair as well. So I decided to give this treatment a go!

Green tea treatment

I brewed 2 packets of green tea according to the directions. Then I allowed the green tea to steep overnight to strengthen the brew for my hair. After washing, I rinsed with cool, freshly brewed green tea. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse it out with cool water.

Do this each wash week.

My experience

I used the green tea treatment after my coconut milk pre poo and co-washing my hair with Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner.

Flipping my hair over in the bathroom sink and having a huge bowl to catch the green tea, I repeatedly poured the green tea over my hair for about 5 minutes. I also massaged my scalp during the tea rinse.

I left the green tea on my hair (with no plastic cap) for about 10 minutes, then added my deep conditioner to my hair (with a plastic cap). I left this treatment on my hair for an hour, then rinsed out with cool water to seal my hair cuticles.

My thoughts

Going Green With Green Tea For Natural Hair
Let me just say that this is one of the best treatments I have done for my hair (there is also my coconut pre poo). This treatment thickened up my hair strands, reduced the hair shedding RIGHT THEN AND THERE, and my hair felt so soft. I mean, I used a regular green tea packet and did my research to be proactive in taking care of my excessive hair shed.

I'm so serious when I say that green tea is the BOMB-DIGGITY! I absolutely love this treatment. My hair surely felt good to me and I'm sure my hair loves me for the treatment.

This treatment is part of my staple regimen!

Natural hair says: research the best products and treatments for your specific hair type and hair need. What works for others may not work for you...however, don't give up just because something did not work for you. Only you can take the health of your hair in your hands.
