Take required water in a pan and bring it to boil, now add one or two tea bags and boil for about 5 mins so that the ingredients are completely transferred in the pan. Loose green tea is also good if you don’t have the tea bags. The green tea water should be completely cooled off before exposing to the hair as hot water can damage hair follicles. In this water we can add some drops of tea tree oil for anti-bacterial effect. Tea tree oil is a great ingredient for scalp problems like itching, inflammation, acne or dandruff, but it’s optional. I mix Vitamin E capsule to most of the hair pack recipes and I suggest to use in green tea water as well. Vitamin E capsule strengthen hair and promote good growth. Some herbal brands offering green tea shampoo and they work effectively on hair as they are pure and free from harmful chemicals. Check this out!!
