Researchers at Tufts University have found that Matcha tea contains a lot more antioxidants than regular green tea. 20 times more! Not only that, Matcha also has a lot of minerals, amino acids, and vitamins, especially a B-vitamin called Panthenol, which helps strengthen the hair.
Panthenol can be found on the ingredient list of many high quality hair care products due to its ability to promote new hair growth and repair damaged hair, such as split ends.
An article published in the Phytomedicine journal stated that epigallocatechin-3-gallate, also known as EGCG may be responsible for the rate of hair growth.
A team of researchers in Korea studied the effects of EGCG on rate of hair growth and the occurrence of changes in the dermal papilla cells. They found that the EGCG supports the growth of dermal papal cells. They also found that the same EGCGs reduce cellular death that is typical of the ageing process. The research paper was published in the journal “Seoul National University College of Medicine” in 2007.
Matcha tea can keep dandruff at bay as well. Just wash your hair occasionally with Matcha and see how amazing its effect is.
Matcha can be used to keep psoriasis at bay, as it normalises skin growth.
The antioxidants, and vitamins C and E in Matcha help promote the overall health of your hair and protecting it from harmful UV rays.
Sift Matcha tea and mix it with shea butter or coconut oil to make a paste. Apply the paste gently to your scalp and massage using slow movements. Let it sit for half an hour. Rinse and style as usual.
