HOW TO USE GREEN TEA IN YOUR HAIR FOR HAIR GROWTH
The best way to get the best effect from using Green Tea for hair growth is to use it as a hair rinse. You can make the tea like you would do to drink it, create the amount needed to rinse your hair, I would suggest three bags to half a litre of water and allow the mix to cool down.
Apply the rinse to already cleansed hair and focus it to the roots of your hair. Leave the rinse in for 10 minutes, then rinse off. You create a mix in your spray bottle using any leftover tea to spray on your hair for additional shine. You can do this method for twice a week for a couple of months, this will help to fight dandruff. Keep the mix in the fridge.
You can create green tea mix with aloe vera, coconut oil, lemons honey just blend the mix together and apply the mix to your scalp massaging it in and allowing to sit for 10 minutes before rinsing your hair out.
