Sip Your Way To Luxurious Hair With Mane Tea
Teas are the new supplement and while we’re sure you’re flat tummy tea’d out, you just might want to sip on some Mane Tea.
As the product’s website states, “Mane Tea is an oral hair growth stimulant that promises to increase hair growth, shine and fullness,” and is pegged as an alternative “when Biotin and other supplements have failed you or are not as result forming as they once were.”
So what separates the Mane Tea from these other supplements? Well its ingredient profile is drastically different. While most hair growth pills and shampoos are infused with Bioton, amino acids, and other vitamins, the Mane Tea derives its growth stimulation from catnip, chamomile, horsetail, jasmine green tea, st 40, marigold, nettle, rosemary, sage, and thyme.
Catnip is considered a natural remedy for dandruff and also moisturizes and conditions hair when used as a leave-in soak which you can do with this tea in addition to drinking it. Similarly, horsetail has been used for the treatment of brittle nails and hair, while marigold protects cells from damage caused by free radicals, and nettle can improve scalp circulation, giving hair follicles a better chance to grow and potentially decreasing shedding.
I haven’t used the tea long enough to speak to its growth benefits, but as far as taste goes it measures up to most teas on the market with a fresh, herbal taste that would likely be enhanced by a drop of honey or lemon. And if you’re not a huge tea drinker, you can always boil a batch, let it cool, and use it as a leave-in conditioner.
