Why Green Tea Shampoo anyway?
Aside from the fact that green tea is good for you internally, when extracted correctly for external use, it can have the same benefits.
The biggest benefit that people notice when they have green tea shampoo is that their hair appears healthier and that it also prevents flaking and scalp issues from becoming too excessive.
As a natural antiseptic, green tea has the ability to reduce inflammation that sparks scalp issues such as itching, psoriasis, and dandruff. So yes, green tea works on the outside as it does on the inside when it comes to calming down inflamed joint and muscle pain. As far as a bottle of shampoo, try to think of it as the condensed version of all of that hair goodness!
Another huge plus about green tea is that the same antioxidants who calm down inflammation are the same ones that help prevent hair loss. How amazing is it that one item in your pantry can change your hair’s entire longevity? Pretty cool right?
