Stressing over your thinning hair? Thankfully, there are plenty of remedies and treatments that can help prevent further hair loss. In addition to taking a daily supplement and improving your hair care routine, experts say that incorporating an herbal tea into your diet can also help promote hair growth and prevent thinning hair–but, not any herbal tea will do. It turns out that one of the best teas to drink for hair loss is chamomile tea!
Chamomille tea is known for its nourishing and rejuvenating properties. In fact, it has "a stellar reputation for healing, and with good reason. It is prepared from dried flowers and it brings an oasis of calm and tranquility," according to Mr. Amit Anand, Owner of Mingle Tea.
The popular tea contains chamazulene, which an aromatic chemical compound that possesses anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antispasmodic properties.
Experts note that chamomile tea has been proven to promote healthy, thicker hair thanks to its soothing effect on the scalp. The tea calms scalp irritation and can even help eliminate and prevent dandruff, giving your hair the environment it needs to foster hair growth.
So, pour yourself a cup of chamomile tea to help strengthen your strands and prevent further fall out.
