We all know that green tea is great for drinking in the morning if you need help with weight loss, tummy aches, or just beneficial for health purposes and for its taste. Plus we find green tea in ice cream, cakes, smoothies, and cookies, etc. Any foods you can think of, there’s probably a green tea version of it somewhere out there. However, we don’t really hear people talk about green tea being added to our hair products or used within our hair. I mean we use it in every other aspect of our daily lives. Whether it’s in the foods we eat, skin products we use, or just plainly added to our homes because of the earthy aroma that it gives off. So why can’t it be added to our hair? If you’ve asked yourself this question and answered no or I don’t know. Then I need you to stop everything that you are doing in order for you to read this post.
So What Are Some Vitamins and Nutrients Found Within Green Tea:
- Vitamin C– which helps to fight cell damage that can play a role in increasing dandruff production. It also has antimicrobial properties which help to fight against bacteria and free radicals that aid in increasing the chances of gray hairs, hair thinning, and hair loss
- Vitamin B2 a.k.a Biotin– is known for reducing hair loss, and increasing red blood cell flow. Increasing red blood cell flow to the scalp stimulates the hair follicles in order to increase not only the hair’s health but the hair’s strength and hair’s ability to grow.
- Folic Acid– helps to thicken the hair, adds shine, aid in preventing hair loss, prevents premature graying, and promotes hair growth.

Now that we’ve explained what nutrients can be found within Green Tea, let’s see how we can use Green Tea within our hair products.
So How Can Green Tea be Used
Green Tea can be added to our hair butter or you can purchase green tea butter if you are someone who doesn’t like to create your own DIY products. This butter can be added to your hair after washing once it has been dried. Green Tea can also be used as an ingredient within your grease products, which can be applied to your scalp daily. In addition to added it to your grease products, it can also be applied to your oil serums and inserted into your hair creams. This is one product that is multifaceted. So if you are someone who likes to drink green tea in the morning, try adding those herbs into a few carrier oils. Let it soak for about 30 min and then apply that oil to your hair. You can either apply it as a daily moisturizer or use the oil mix as an oil treatment for dryness and dandruff. So remember when you think of green tea, think of cookies, cakes, and hair oil treatments.
