How Green Tea helps to keep your hair look healthy?

How Green Tea helps to keep your hair look healthy?

27 Sep, 2022

So, you’ve started losing your hair. Well, there’s one thing for sure. You’re not the only one. 40% of Australian men in their 40’s experience hair loss.

Male pattern baldness (or androgenic alopecia) has no permanent remedy except for a surgical hair transplant, but you can prevent further hair loss and stimulate hair regrowth with two FDA approved medications –  Finasteride and Minoxidil. Whether or not you decide to talk to your doctor about these two options, you should still make sure you take care of the hair you do have left.

Luckily, there are a lot of easily available and affordable natural products you can use to keep your hair looking and feeling strong and healthy. One such option is green tea.

What is green tea?

Here’s a bit of tea history. Tea is made from a leaf called Camellia sinensis, which is more conveniently referred to as the “tea plant.” After being picked, these leaves can be fermented, semi-fermented, or non-fermented, with green tea belonging to the last category.

Because they’re non-fermented, green tea leaves retain most of the nutrients they had when they were fresh, with one of the main ones being a category of antioxidants called catechins. The primary catechin in green tea is epigallocatechin-3 gallate (EGCG).

Several studies have found that EGCG can be incredibly beneficial to your physiological health. It can lead to a decreased risk for many different conditions, including several types of cancer, coronary artery disease, and type 2 diabetes. In addition, it’s pretty good for your hair, too.

What are the benefits of green tea for your hair?

Well, for starters, antioxidants fight off free radicals. Free radicals are harmful molecules you don’t want at excess levels in your body. Every day, your hair is exposed to a ton of them, such as UV rays from the sun and pollution in the air. The antioxidant activity of green tea helps protect your hair from those molecules, thus warding off any damage they could cause.

In addition, EGCG is considered a potential natural DHT (dihydrotestosterone) blocker because it might be able to block 5α-reductase (5-alpha-reductase), which is the enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. Since genetic DHT sensitivity causes Male Pattern Baldness, the more you can do to prevent that conversion, the better.

Can green tea regrow hair?

Another possible benefit of green tea is that it might increase endothelial blood flow (that’s a fancy way of saying increasing the nutrient delivery to the hair follicles). In turn, this could strengthen the hair follicles, thus preventing hair loss and stimulating regrowth.

Bottom line: There’s still not enough evidence to prove that green tea can prevent hair loss from starting, but it can protect the hair you have left.

What forms does green tea come in (and what’s best for your hair)?

The most direct route is to buy green tea leaves, brew a cup of tea, and then, when cool rinse your hair and scalp with it. Green tea supplements are another option. You can also find green tea infused in some shampoos and conditioners. Of course, you can also start drinking green tea regularly. Remember, it has all those other benefits, too.

Again, there’s not enough evidence to prove that green tea will prevent hair loss. However, green tea can definitely keep your hair looking healthy and thick. Some other natural ingredients you can seek out to do the same are caffeine, saw palmetto, and biotin.
