OK so this is a new one for us at Qi Teas. Green Tea is apparently amazing for your hair and scalp…not by drinking it, but by making a tea rinse!
It is said that a natural, organic tea rinse is a great addition to your monthly hair washing routine.
Apparently a green tea hair rinse can:
Reduce Shedding due to the natural caffeine by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, is a natural but powerful metabolite of the body and the main cause of hair loss in both men and women.). Amazingly it can also treat scalp issues such as dandruff!
As well as all of these, it also conditions the hair with the natural polyphenols and vitamins, helping to soften hair, close the cuticles of more porous hair AND adds shine!
We have tried and tested this here in the office and we have to say, the results were very impressive!
How to make our Qi Tea Rinse:
Medium Pyrex Bowl filled with water (water 80 - 100ºC)
Two drops peppermint oil (optional)
Place the bags into the bowl, and fill with the boiling water. Allow to brew for 60 mins, until luke warm. Remove the bags. Add the drops of oil. We put ours into a spray bottle but you can recycle an old shampoo bottle for easy application!
Wash your hair as normal, using your normal shampoo.
Apply the tea rinse to directly to your scalp (you don’t need to apply to your hair)
Massage into your scalp, then leave in for 10-12 mins.
Apply conditioner to your hair.
Rinse your hair with water.
Apply deep conditioning treatment, leave in for manufacturers instructed time.
Rinse with water.
We love this new trick!
