How I Use Green Tea For Hair?
Green Tea Hair Rinse
This is my favorite and probably the most effective way of using green tea for hair. If you are not aware of the hair rinse method then you can check here for more details.
What you need to do is simply brew green tea bag in a cup of hot water and let it cool down completely. Now, after you wash your hair, simply pour this green tea on your hair and scalp and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Now rinse it off with normal water (don’t use hot water to rinse it off).
Another way of doing this is used tea bags. I actually have developed the habit of drinking a cup of green tea daily. So, I keep the used green tea bags in my refrigerator and then on the day of my hair wash, I simply brew these babies again. It works fabulously for me.
Drinking Green Tea With Honey
Are you like me, who can’t stand the taste of green tea but are truly amazed by its powers? Recently I landed on a tea brand called teame teas. They actually claimed that they deal in better green tea and not bitter ones. So, I gave them a try and to my surprise they actually were true. Their green tea comes in too many variants and actually has a taste that can make you drink a cup of your green tea daily.
I just brew the green tea of my choice in a cup of hot water and then add 1 spoon of honey and simply have it. I have actually started drinking one cup of green tea a day and have noticed a great difference in my hair and skin. The cold and fever that used to visit me quite often have actually become distant relatives now.
Adding Green Tea To Shampoo

Here is a detailed post on how to enhance your shampoo and what should you add to it according to your hair’s needs. This time I added green tea to my shampoo and noticed that my hair was really silky yet bouncy and my scalp felt fresh and clean.

Green Tea Hair Mask

Ingredients: Green tea bags, water, and honey.
Method: Brew 1 cup of green tea and mix it with 4 tablespoons of honey. Now mix it well. Apply this hair mask generously on your hair and scalp and leave it on for 60 minutes. Now rinse it off and shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
