Nettle Tea for Longer and Stronger Hair
Nettle Tea:For ages, stinging nettle has been recognized as a remedy for natural hair loss.
Whether it is consumed as a tea or applied topically in the form of an ointment, cream or shampoo, nettle is highly effective in controlling hair-related problems and improving hair growth.
If you are struggling with hair loss problems, nettle tea may be the solution for your needs.
Nettle tea effectively combats hair fall problems and enhances the growth of strong, luxurious locks in the following ways:
It reduces inflammation of the scalp
Chronic hair loss results from scalp inflammation conditions. When the scalp is inflamed, hair follicles are damaged.
This leads to hair fall and poor regrowth of hair.
Polyphenols present in nettle tea are strong anti-inflammatory agents that directly act on swollen areas in the scalp and counter the problem.
Neutralizes free radical damage
Foreign bodies such as dust, pollutants and germs trigger scalp irritation and lead to hair loss conditions.
Anti-oxidants present in nettle tea are highly effective in fighting against free radicals and inhibit their formation.
When free radical formation is under check, hair regrowth becomes more efficient.
Prevents male pattern baldness
DHT is a hormone associated with male pattern baldness.
It produces powerful reactions against this hormone, and it blocks DHT production by the body.
As a result, it helps to delay the onset of male pattern baldness.
Improves regrowth and texture of hair
Nettle leaves contain silica and sulfur that promote hair growth and make it appear healthy and shining.
When applied topically, nettle can also treat dandruff problems.
How to Use Nettle Tea to Combat Hair Loss?
To reduce hair loss problems, consume three glasses of it every day.
The effects are best when nettle tea is made using freshly plucked nettle leaves.
Brew the freshly plucked leaves for three to five minutes in water that is slightly under boiled.
To enhance the effectiveness of this herb, you can also apply nettle oil to your hair.
For this, infuse coconut oil or jojoba oil with nettle leaves for several hours.
Apply this oil to your scalp and watch your hair growth improve in a matter of weeks.
Simply massage this oil thoroughly into your scalp before you go to bed and wash it off the next day.
