Does your hair growth seem to be stunted? Not growing beyond the shoulder mark? We have one solution for you - black tea hair tonic!
Let's cut to the chase. We are absolutely, irrevocably, in love with this DIY hair tonic. And you would be too, if you knew what it can do to your locks!
Black tea contains more of caffeine than your daily cup of coffee. And it is this caffeine that blocks DTH, a hormone that triggers hair loss. Furthermore, the chock-full of antioxidants it contains, darken the hair strands, add shine and softness to your locks.
Other ingredients included in this black tea mask for long hair include rosemary, thyme leaves and marshmallow root.
Rosemary contains ursolic acid that stimulate hair follicles, allowing them to absorb oxygen and nutrients better, which in turn improves hair growth.
Thyme leaves cleanse the scalp of dandruff and marshmallow locks in the moisture in the hair strands, making your hair turn supple and smooth.
Now that you know precisely what this hair tonic can do, let's get down to the steps on how to make hair grow naturally with this black tea hair tonic!
Take a pan, set it on high flame. Add two cups of water to the pan and bring it to the boiling point. Reduce the flame.
Add two black tea bags to the hot water, and let it simmer for 15 to 30 minutes.
Later, add a teaspoon of dried rosemary leaves, half a teaspoon of thyme and a teaspoon of marshmallow root powder. Let it all simmer for 5 minutes. Turn of the heat and strain the solution.
Let the solution hibernate for 2 to 3 hours.
Comb your hair to remove all knots. Hold the hair in mid-length and run the comb through to remove all tangles.
Shampoo your hair as usual, and squeeze out the excess water. Give your hair a last rinse with this black tea hair tonic.
Make sure it saturates well through the hair length and scalp. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse it out and follow it up with a deep conditioner.
To see a notable difference in hair growth, apply this DIY hair tonic once a week, for a few months.
Note - To eliminate any possibility of side effects, make sure to patch test the tonic first! Tweak the content to suit your hair length and thickness.
