Unlike Oolong and black tea leaves which are fermented,
Green tea leaves are steamed which preserves more of the tea’s natural compounds.
Green tea is packed with
These are powerful antioxidants with Numerous benefits for:
- Fat burning,
- Mental well-being
The powerful antioxidants in Green Tea help to strengthen hair in a number of ways:
▪ Studies show that green tea contains the antioxidant
“EGCG” (or epigallocatechin gallate) that has the ability to stimulate the hair growth cycle.
When studying mice stricken with hair loss problems, researchers found that hair loss was halted in all mice which received green tea in their drinking water and surprisingly triggered new hair growth on the head of some of the mice.
▪ Green Tea contains B vitamin (panthenol), which you usually find in hair conditioners, softens and strengthens the hair follicle whilst helping to control split ends.
▪ Application of Green Tea to the scalp, results in a significant elongation of the hair follicle.

So can Green Tea block DHT?
Let’s have a very quick recap on what DHT actually is
DHT stands for Dihydrotestosterone.
- It’s responsible for developing male characteristics -
- maturation of the penis and scrotum at puberty, growth of facial, body and pubic hair, and development and maintenance of the prostate gland and seminal vesicles.
- High or excessive DHT levels are not the sole cause of hair loss.
- It’s actually hair follicle DHT sensitivity.
- In genetically pre-disposed guys in certain areas on the scalp, their hair follicles are more sensitive to the effects of DHT.
Hair follicle DHT sensitivity kicks off male pattern baldness.For really healthy, strong hair, it’s a good idea to combine two cups of Green Tea per day with your It Really Works Vitamins for Thick, Strong, Healthy Hair.

Around two thirds of men worldwide are genetically predisposed to hair loss.
The male body naturally converts about 5% of testosterone into DHT using an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase .
By blocking this enzyme, many foods are thought to decrease DHT production from testosterone and prevent hair loss.
I list a lot of the foods, drinks and snacks that can block DHT in this video!
Please watch it - after this video.
Green tea is largely made up of plant chemical called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which has been associated with health benefits including
- Weight loss,
- Heart health, and
- Brain health
EGCG has also been shown to protect hair follicles.
In this study When applied to the scalps of three men for 4 days, an alcohol extract of EGCG stimulated hair growth by preventing the death of cells that regulate the growth and development of hair caused by DHT More research needs to be done into how Green Tea can block DHT, as this study has quite a small sample size and short treatment duration
Just an interesting point - Green tea works well in drink form -
Green Tea extract supplements commonly contain standardized amounts of EGCG but have not been shown to combat hair loss caused by DHT.
Ultimately, additional studies in humans are needed to better determine whether drinking green tea or taking EGCG or green tea supplements blocks DHT and fights hair loss.
In this study conducted by Researchers from Japan, it was found that Green Tea inhibits the production of a cytokine called The Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha - this cytokine affects how hair grows and can result in hair loss (7).
In this way Green Tea is effective in preventing hair loss.
