If you’re dealing with the frustration of thinning hair, rest assured there are plenty of at home remedies that can help prevent further hair loss. One of the most surprising options is simply drinking chamomile tea!
Experts agree that incorporating chamomile tea into your diet can aid in hair growth and help to prevent thinning hair. A longtime herbal-remedy staple, WebMD reports chamomile alleviates other conditions like nausea, anxiety, and insomnia. When applied to the skin, chamomile has wound-healing properties and may be as effective as hydrocortisone cream. Pretty powerful stuff for such a dainty flower, right?
If your strands are in need of a little TLC, then incorporating chamomile tea into your morning routine may just do the trick. Packed with chamazulene, an aromatic chemical compound with anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antispasmodic properties, chamomile tea is an easy way to unwind while giving your scalp the attention it needs.
Jean Valnet’s “The Practice of Aromatherapy: A Classic Compendium of Plant Medicines and Their Healing Properties," notes that another way to reduce or prevent hair loss is by creating a chamomile-infused hair rinse. If you're not much for sipping hot tea in the summer heat, this is a great alternative sure to give you the same hair boosting benefits.
To create your own chamomile rinse:
1. Boil water and add flowers or chamomile tea pouch
2. Steep the brew for 30 minutes
3. Let it cool completely- nobody wants a burnt scalp!
4. Rinse with the mixture and allow time for it to dry
5. Wash your hair as usual, and voilà!
