Question: Can I use green tea for hair loss?
Answer: In short, no, green tea will not have an effect on hair growth or hair loss. Green tea is supposed to mop free radicals from the body. If this in indeed the case, it is beneficial overall for good health but it can neither make your hair grow nor stop hair loss. For women, the only proven medication for hair loss in minoxidil, which is a topical hair loss treatment applied twice a day that can halt thinning and regrow hair.
