Why You Should Use A Green Tea Shampoo

Alyssa François | 14 November 2017

We love a shampoo chock full of benefits. 

We want to let you in on a little secret: We’re starting to become a little ingredient-obsessed when it comes to choosing what new products we’re planning to try on our hair. For most products on the market, it’s not just the ingredients that produce results, but the technology of the formula infused into the product. However, that doesn’t seem to change our minds or of anyone else’s. Have something with an ingredient that is beneficial to hair, even if it’s a drop or two? Send it our way, as we are all about trying something new. Our current obsession is green tea shampoo, and we’re giving you the lowdown about it below. Read on:

Green Tea Shampoo: Why We’re Obsessed and What Shampoos to Use

When we say green tea shampoo, we don’t necessarily mean using green tea as a shampoo for hair. However, green tea has been said to be a very good treatment. How does one use it you ask? Well, most women boil green tea, allow it to cool and rinse their hair with it. Some also take the tea and mix it into their deep conditioners. The antioxidants found in the tea help rejuvenate and strengthen hair.

Green tea also contains vitamin B which can be beneficial to the overall healthy and soft feeling of your hair. Some women also believe that green tea has helped them with regrowing their hair. Maybe this could be your alternative to a hair growth shampoo.

The Green Tea Shampoos We’re Obsessed With

We’re saving the hot green tea for drinking purposes only and we have a reason. We have something that requires less missing time and more wash and repeat. TRESemmé Botanique Nourish and Replenish Shampoo is infused with green tea and we are amazed by how clean and refreshing it makes hair feel! According to TRESemmé, this detoxing shampoo removes impurities to return lackluster locks to their former glory.

Another green tea-infused shampoo on our list is Nexxus Diametress Shampoo. If you have fine or flat hair (or both), use this volumizing shampoo to gently cleanse your hair. The formula is enriched with green tea extract and concentrated elastin protein, and can help increase the diameter of each hair strand by up to 17 percent. If this isn’t a boost for flat and fine hair, we don’t know what is.

Now, if you’re on the hunt for something with green tea in it to use on your hair because you’re pleased with all of the good things you hear it can do, don’t just buy the first product you see that contains green tea. Sometimes it could be just the scent of green tea added to the product, which by the way, is also a delight. Do your research first, and if all else fails there’s nothing wrong with trying out your own D.I.Y. concoction.
