You don’t heat style your hair too often, you never brush your hair when it’s wet and you deep condition like you life depends on it, but you still feel like your hair is falling out, and seeing all those strands in your brush stresses you out, which makes your hair shed even more. It seems like everyone is struggling with shedding and even though you can get all kind of products that prevent your hair from breaking off in the middle of the strand, it can be harder to find products that promise to reduce shedding from the scalp.
Good thing nature has got you covered. The natural ingredient for strong, shiny, thick, healthy hair that you have probably never even heard of? Black tea. The main cause of hair loss is the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which shrinks the hair follicles, and black tea is known to block the effects of DHT. It also stimulates hair growth, strengthens your hair and makes it look shiny and soft.
If you want to get the benefits of black tea for your hair, you can do black tea hair rinses at home or you can use products that contain black tea every time you shampoo and condition. There aren’t many hair products out there that are made with black tea but we found a few that do.
Zenology’s Black Tea Duo Gift Set ($105) is a little on the pricey side, but the black tea in the shampoo and conditioner will keep your hair strong and thick while the jojoba oil will leave your hair healthy and shiny. Zenology also don’t use any parabens, sulfates, solvents, petrolatum synthetic colours or other ingredients that are bad for your body and harmful to the planet.
