For Longer, Stronger , Healthier hair… with ROOT2TiP
What is it?
Tea rinsing, in its simplest form, is the brewing of a large cup of your tea of choice… Green, Bamboo or a powerful Ayurvedic blend of herbs, to be used as a beautifying tonic to rinse over your strands.
Why do it?
Herbal teas are chock-full of healthy anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that have a powerful effect on your hair and scalp in the same way they do for your body. Incorporating this step into a healthy hair regime can greatly benefit your hair’s health.
Black tea and Green tea both contain caffeine that assists in blocking the hormone DHT that is responsible for hair shedding. Green tea is also a stimulant for hair growth!
Bamboo tea is amazing as it contains an abundance of the hair loving ingredient Silica that strengthens your hair and nails.
Ayurvedic herbal teas mixes are the secret to lustrous hair growth in the Asian culture. Herbs like Amla, Maka and Brahmi, promise to strengthen the hair roots, encourage thicker growth and dark dense roots.
