But did you know that black tea can be very beneficial for our hair as well?
Black Tea Rinse:
- The Caffeine in black tea blocks DHT
- DHT is the hormone that is responsible for hair loss
- Reduces shedding
- Adds shine and makes hair more manageable
FYI: Black tea darkens hair and brings out natural highlights.
Black Tea Rinse How To:
- Add 2-4 tea bags to 2 cups of boiled water. (you may need more or less depending on how much hair you have)
- It’s recommended that you let the tea steep for a few hours or over night.
- Wash hair.
- Take the tea and pour it on your hair or use a spray bottle.
- Let it sit for 20-30 minutes.
- After it has set for 20-30 minutes, add your favorite deep conditioner directly on top of the rinse.
- Every 2 weeks, because some studies have shown that two much caffeine can clog pores and prevent hair growth.
Note: Some hair bloggers stated that they’ve added the tea and then layered it with the conditioner for 20-30 minutes; achieving the same results.
Warning: Black tea will stain, so be sure you’re wearing something old while rinsing.
