2)Black tea acts as a hair stimulator:
Black tea combats DHT, a hormone present in the scalp, which is primarily responsible for hair loss. The caffeine present in the black tea decreases the level of DHT which prevents the unnecessary shedding of hair and makes the hair look more voluminous. It makes it stronger from the roots and provides the much needed nourishment from the tips to the roots.
3)Adds gloss to your hair and makes it lustrous:
Alternating your regular shampoo with a black tea based shampoo can make your hair look glossier and gives it a shiny tint. If your hair is of a lighter shade, we warn you against using this unless you want your hair to look darker than its original color. The end results make your hair looks lustrous and thick.
