In fact, a research conducted by the Department of Dermatology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, indicates that green tea has the ability to stimulate the growth of hair as it contains some of the most powerful antioxidants and agents, which help strengthen your hair and these include:
- B vitamin (panthenol), Vitamin C, and Vitamin E that are helpful in stimulating hair growth, control split ends, softens your hair, and strengthens your hair follicle. Drinking or direct application onto your scalp will help strengthen your hair.
- The antioxidant “EGCG” (or epigallocatechin gallate) that has the ability to stimulate hair growth.
- DHT-blockers called “5-alpha-reductase” to stop one of the main causes of baldness.
- The anti-inflammatory properties of polyphenols can help to stop hair loss and even promote the growth of new hair by simply cleansing your scalp with concentrated green tea solution. You can easily prepare a green tea rinse at home by drenching 6 bags of green tea to a half liter of water and using it after shampooing and conditioning your hair. If you do this, you will be amazed by the good results.
