DIY Green Tea Hair Growth Spray

Green tea can seemingly do no wrong. It has the ability to speed up metabolism, boost hair growth, and may have the potential to fight off certain cancer cells. You may want to start incorporating green tea into your diet, or in the case of this article, into your DIY hair care routine.

Hair growth is not something that can be controlled, although the combination of eating clean and using natural, chemical-free hair care products can encourage healthy hair. The problem is that most people lunge towards miracle hair growth products that seldom work. These products may only contain one ingredient that may be able to encourage hair growth. That’s why it is beneficial to make your own hair growth products, which are solely comprised of ingredients that promote healthy hair.

Why Use Green Tea?

Green tea contains carotenoids, zinc, tacopherols, and ascorbic acid, all of which help to prevent hair loss and encourage regrowth. When it comes to green tea’s power of stimulating hair growth, however, one essential compound is responsible: epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This polyphenol works to promote hair growth in cell culture, strengthening roots and activating hair follicles for healthier hair.

Why Use Rosemary Essential Oil?

The idea behind using rosemary essential oil to prevent hair loss is attributed to the anti-inflammatory properties of rosemary. It also has the ability to improve circulation and promote nerve growth. Recent studies have found that rosemary essential oil contains carnosic acid, which may have the potential to rejuvenate nerves in the scalp, ultimately restoring hair growth. Other studies found that rosemary oil is just as effective at preventing hair loss as minoxidil, the active ingredient in Rogaine.

Why Use Lime?

Lime juice contains folate and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, and C. All of these work together to boost circulation throughout the body, including the scalp, and this may help to prevent hair loss.

Green Tea Hair Growth Spray

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 green tea bag
  • juice from ½ lime
  • 5 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 1 spray bottle

Instructions:

  • Boil one cup of water and then pour it into a mug. Steep the green tea bag in the hot water for about 7 minutes.
  • Remove the tea bag from the water and pour the tea into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Stir in the lime juice and rosemary essential oil. Whisk to combine.
  • Wait for the mixture to cool before pouring it into a spray bottle and store in a cool dry place.

How To Use:

  • Wash your hair first. Once you get out of the shower, gently dry your hair before spraying the green tea mixture all over your hair and scalp. Massage it into your scalp and through your hair. Leave it in and don’t rinse it out.

    Q: I have read that Peppermint, Lavender, Rosemary and Sage essential oils are all good for hair and stimulating hair growth. Would it be more beneficial to use them all at once for maximum result or should I just use the Rosemary and Sage only as you suggested? Also, I didn?t see any Almond oil so I was wondering if I could use Olive oil or Jojoba oil as a carrier oil.

    A:

    Yes they are great for stimulating hair growth; however, I would use them together or combined. ANY natural edible oil can be used - it's YOUR choice. Jojoba and/or sesame seed oil are the best oils for the hair.

    A:

    Read the "HAIR PROBLEMS" article but as well as our new "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" article (due out next week) to understand that your condition is one of toxic blood. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX (perhaps back to back). Use natural shampoos and conditioners (purchase our ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL e-book for a listing of healthy brands). Consider a radical diet and lifestyle change. There's much you need to do, but the most important thing is to educate yourself and you can do that by reading many of our health articles for a general overview of health and what you need to do to heal on all levels.

    Q: I have experienced dramatic hair loss in the last 7 months. The Dr.'s says it's stress. I have since eliminated stress, started working out, detoxing (ionic foot bath), and eliminating the bad foods. I have been known to eat excessively in the past. Im just not sure, if it is not my hormones off track, because of the poor diet, then what. Although, I believe that poor diet leads to any illness now. I would like to find one product that can focus on the bigger picture for me which is complete well being to STOP the hair loss and grow my hair back as thick and strong as it has always been. When the hair loss started I noticed constipation at the same time. The constipation is slowly getting better, but the hair loss really concerns me. I am a model, and my hair is my trademark. Do you know of any reputable naturalpaths in Atlanta? Is there a product of yours that you could suggest?

    A:

    Usually, the hormones are out of balance, usually the ovaries. Hair loss is a sign of degeneracy at the sexual reproductive level. Rebuild the endocrine system. Start by cleansing the body. Start by detoxing (Full Body Detox) followed by performing the Total Woman Cleanse. Also, learn to focus on what you desire (beautiful and healthy hair) and not what you don't want (hair fallout, hair problems). Our Mental Science Manual is good reading for healing with the mind in addition to herbs and other things.

    Q: My hair has finally started to grow and I have split ends. My hair has started to grow because I have decided to grow my hair naturally. Theses spilt ends are wrecking my nerves. How do I repair them with cutting off about 2&1/2 inches of my hair? I would prefer to use food products.

    A:

    BELIEVE IT OR NOT, SPLIT ENDS REFLECT THE HEALTH OF THE OVARIES. YOUR HAIR TIES IN TO YOUR REPRODUCTIVE AREA. FEED (NOURISH) THE SEX GLANDS. CONSIDER PERFORMING THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE BUT ALSO CONSUMING FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SPECIFIC HERBS (VIA TEA, CAPSULES, OR EXTRACTS) DAILY. TAKE AS MUCH MSM SULFUR AS YOU CAN. THIS IS GREAT FOOD FOR THE HAIR AND KEEPS THE HAIR GROWING. TO FIX SPLIT ENDS, WORK ON YOUR OVARIES.

    Q: I wrote to you earlier tonight regarding my hair has recently been thinning quite a bit. I forgot to tell you that I have been periodically been dying (coloring my hair) because I have so much grey coming in. I am 40 years old and my hair is quite grey without the coloring. I recently switched to a brand that I bought in the health food store. Tell me is my hair falling out because I have been coloring it? I just started coloring it the past four years due to greying. (I know young girls color their hair all the time just to experiment. I colored because of the grey). Is the coloring getting me in trouble and causing the hair fall out. I color it myself not professionally. Tell me should I just stop all together with the coloring? What do you recommend to restore my hair?

    A:

    You cannot regain your hair without regaining your overall health including your hormonal health. First, detoxify your whole body (see Full Body Cleanse). Follow the Full Body Clease with the Female Cleanse.

    After these 2 cleanses (which we highly recommend) your monthly regimen should consist of the following Dherbs formulas: Thyroid Aid, Vitamin C, Electric Greens, Hair, Skin, Nails Formula and Female Hormonal Formula.

    Only use natural hair products (shampoo and conditioner). Don't process your hair as much. Avoid harsh chemicals on your hair.

    Q: My 12 year old daughter is losing her hair. Her hairline has significantly receded, and her hairline on the side of her face is behind her ears, are slick. She does not have a perm and has not for about 2 years now. It is ok to use the Hair Nail formula and the MSM Sulfur together? Should I change the dosage? I am also considering the Child Liquid Cleanser and the Green 10-day Cleanser. Can they be used together? Should I change the dosage? Backgroud: She had ringworm when she was about 6, and lost hair. It grew back. She got a perm around 10. After the second application I noticed that those spots that were lost when she was 6 were going bald again. She hasn't gotten another perm. In spite of that, the areas of loss have gotten larger. The natural hair stylist said it could be puberty induced alopecia. Please help...

    A:

    Target her nutrition! Put her on HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, MSM SULFUR, IODINE PHOSPHATE, etc.
