It is said that we shed between 50-100 strands of hair a day and this is perfectly normal and necessary since the shed hairs have reached the end of their growth cycle. If you read hair blogs or are on a hair journey you have probably heard about tea, coffee, garlic rinses etc that help combat excessive shedding. Thankfully I do not currently suffer from excessive shedding, I tried a black tea rinse out of curiosity but did not like the stiffness that came as a result and so I decided to leave any shedding related rinses for when I actually needed them due to excessive shedding. Excessive shedding can be attributed to many causes stress, medication and postpartum shedding among others. If your shed hairs are more than what you are used to seeing in the bathroom drain or comb and goes on for a long period then you probably have excessive shedding which is where natural remedies like tea and garlic rinses come in handy; if your hair is coming out in clumps however you may want to see a dermatologist or doctor that is not normal.
Does doing constant black tea or coffee rinses defeat the purpose of natural shedding; I mean if you are not suffering from excessive shedding why try to combat normal shedding which is a natural part of hair growth? By constant I mean that you have normal shedding and are tea rinsing after every wash so assuming you wash once a week that is four tea rinses in a month. I am not sure if there are any studies or research done out there on the negative effects of tea rinses to combat normal shedding so if anyone knows of any please add a link in the comment section if available.
What do you ladies think can doing constant tea rinses in the absence of excessive shedding cause more harm than good?
