Suffering from hair loss, why not drink some tea? The caffeine found in the Camilla sinensis plant helps block DHT (Dihydrotestrone), the hormone believed to be responsible for hair loss. In addition, the antioxidants in the plant are also believed to inhibit DHT, so a simple cup of tea has a powerful punch, preventing hair loss on two fronts. And here’s the bonus, when you drink tea, you not only prevent hair from falling out but also encourage more growth. To give an added boost to hair, try a daily scalp massage with a cup of your favorite brew. The tea massage boosts circulation and more hair is the result.

If you have been leaning towards drinking tisanes, don’t worry, these beauties are also amazing for your follicles. Rooibos tea has been shown to help increase hair growth, prevent hair loss and add brilliant shine.

The wonderful hair benefits don’t only have to be enjoyed internally; why not try washing your hair with some tea today? While almost all varieties of tea have been shown to help prevent hair loss, each has their own additional magic that can help create beautiful locks. The polyphenols, vitamin C and E in black tea help prevent dullness, boosting shine while increasing softness.

Chamomile Hair Cleanser
What You Need:

2 chamomile tea bags
1 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 heaping tablespoon raw honey

What to Do:

Why Chamomile Tea Cleanses:
Chamomile is a flower, but its herbal benefits are so famous for calming our minds and digestive system, most of us Westerners consider chamomile a classic tea rather than an herbal tea. Chamomile also penetrates deep into our scalps, with its heavily researched cleansing properties. Expect it to remove oil, product, and dirt build-up.

Stimulating Black Tea Conditioner
What You Need:

1 ounce ripe avocado
2 ounces coconut oil
1 ounce aloe vera
1/8 ounce assam black tea
1 1/2 fluid ounces grapeseed oil

What to Do:
Use fresh aloe and avocado and extract the “meat” by hand. It ensures the correct measurement of the dry ingredients (including solidified coconut oil) by weight. Place all the ingredients in the blender and blend for one to two minutes or until mixture has become dark. This means the tea has blended into the rest of the ingredients. Transfer into a resealable container for immediate use.

How to Use It:
Apply conditioner on clean, wet hair, massaging the scalp and focusing on brittle or split ends. Rinse hair with lukewarm water until the water runs clean.

Why Black Tea:
The tannin present in black tea increases blood circulation in the scalp and stimulates hair growth. Plus, the rich tone can increase shine while giving your scalp and hair a healthy dose of antioxidants. This helps to prevent dandruff, thinning, and dull hair.

Restorative Green Tea and Fennel Hair Mask
What You Need:

2 ounces organic fennel seeds
2 ounces boiling water
1-ounce argan oil
1 tablespoon green tea extract
4 ounces pure, raw coconut oil

What to Do:
You can purchase green tea extract here or make your own extract using vegetable glycerin and dried green tea. First, boil a pot of water in a kettle or small pot. While the water is boiling, mix the oils and extract in a large mixing bowl.

Once the water has reached a boil, pour the fennel seeds and hot water in a heatproof container. Let steep for 10 minutes. Strain the seeds with a colander, reserving the fennel tea for the mask. Allow fennel tea to cool before adding into mixing bowl. Transfer contents to a blender and blend until a smooth consistency is reached. Store in a resealable container.

How to Apply It:
Massage your new restorative mask on clean, wet hair, combing or finger detangling throughout to ensure strands are completely covered. To get the most out of the mask, heat up a towel using a towel warmer or the microwave and then cover your hair with it to let the heat open the pores in your scalp. Keep the towel on for 20 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Why Green Tea Restores:
The naturally green leaves come from the same plant as black tea, but since the camellia plant undergoes less processing than black tea, the presence of antioxidants is more potent. The caffeine gives your scalp gentle stimulation for hair growth while the catechins help prevent hair loss. This is a great mask for anyone losing precious tresses or looking to strengthen the scalp.
