Beauty Tips for Busy Women: Green Tea for Hair

Hair is a one of the most important assets of a woman. It enhances your femininity and allows you to express your personality or mood. Regardless of the tricks you try to enhance your look, nothing can replace healthy hair and the confidence that you have knowing that you are naturally beautiful. But a busy woman like you doesn't have that much time off. So is there a solution for you too? Of course there is: green tea

Green tea is one of nature's best kept secrets for hair care. Whether you apply it directly or you drink it on a regular basis, it will actively contribute to a healthier and thicker hair. It promotes hair growth and it can replace pricey beauty treatments. Green tea is inexpensive, easy to use and won't damage your precious strands in any way even if you apply it frequently. 

On the contrary, it will provide the protection that the follicles need. The antioxidants that it contains are a real treat both for your body and for your scalp. They slow down aging and allow your hair to grow properly without being affected by free radicals. Green tea is full of polyphenols that boost hair growth and are effective against hair loss too.

Some compounds found in green tea inhibits the enzyme that transforms testosterone in a compound that damages hair. Drinking green tea regularly will interrupt the hormonal reaction that speeds up hair fall and prevents future hair growth. Studies have shown that the properties of green tea prevent hair growth from being inhibited by stress. Constant stress is one of the main reasons for hair loss, the issue that all women are terrified of. 


Green Tea for Hair Growth: Let Your Hair Down and Keep Things Simple

You can either use green tea to rinse your hair or simply drink it. It is recommended to do both. Rinsing will help the hair to reflect the light by removing the residue and make it shiny. Prepare fresh green tea like you normally do. Make sure that it is lukewarm or cold before you apply it. Gently massage the scalp and leave the green tea on for 10-15 minutes or more. Use a shower cap meanwhile to keep your hair from dripping down your clothes. 

Women with dry hair should use it after shampooing and conditioning. It is a useful addition that will make hair stronger. If your hair is oily, it would be best to use it before you wash it. 

If you can't give up coffee or you can't prepare tea during the day while you are working anyway, you can take green tea dietary supplements. Make sure they are all-natural. Unnecessary additives will decrease the efficiency. Drinking a few cups a day will do the trick. Avoid drinking green tea in the evening as it is known for its energizing properties.

 Using green tea for hair growth is a quick method that can blend it nicely in any busy woman's schedule. Green tea contributes to a healthier longer hair by working from the inside out and by improving hair strength. You will notice the benefits in a short while without investing lots of time, money or efforts.
