There are a lot of things that cause poor hair growth. Lacking proper nutrients and harsh hair treatments are common causes of issues like thin hair and split ends. Exposure to heat, chemicals, and stress are all causes for poor hair growth and health. Luckily there are many herbal remedies available that can help strengthen and encourage hair growth. One herbal remedy that is particularly useful for this issue is horsetail tea.
Horsetail tea is great for hair health and for promoting strong growth as well. This particular brew of tea is also great for the health of the scalp as well and can be used to soothe a dry itchy scalp. This is because horsetail tea is high in minerals and constituents such as silica, which can help provide added nutrients for the hair and scalp. The silica that is present in this tea is beneficial for the hair because it strengthens damaged and weak hair giving it better vitality as well as a lustrous shine. The minerals in the hair will improve its elasticity which makes it less prone to split ends and breakage.
Many people drink horsetail tea, but it can also be used externally. Wash cooled horsetail tea directly into the hair and allow it to set for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it out. Drinking the tea with honey can also help improve the hair, since it offers the body many minerals such as potassium, manganese, and selenium which are necessary for healthy skin, hair, and nails. If preferred, you can also add this tea into your shampoo as an alternative method of using it.
