Why You Should Use a Green Tea Shampoo

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 to try on our hair, especially when it comes to the green tea shampoo trend. 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.


Green Tea Shampoo: Why We’re Obsessed

Our current obsession is green tea shampoo, and we’re giving you the lowdown about it below. Read on:


What is green tea shampoo?

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 soft, healthy feel of your hair. Some women also believe that green tea has helped them with growth.


Shampoos We Love

The Organics Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo is infused with green tea and we are amazed by how clean and refreshing it makes hair feel! This green tea shampoo is designed to reduce dandruff while being gentle on your hair and scalp. The result? A fresh, dandruff-free scalp and clean, soft hair.

TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo
TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Conditioner

For our ladies with dyed hair, the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo and Conditioner will be great for you. It’s not only infused with green tea, it’s also made with rosemary and sunflowers. With all this goodness, this green tea shampoo will moisturise and soften your hair, allowing the colour to stay bright and vibrant for much longer than it would otherwise. And it gets better: the conditioner is excellent at helping to detangle stubborn knots and tangles, without weighing down your hair.


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.
