What Kind Of Tea Is Good for Your Natural hair?

Tea is made in different ways around the world I believe, but here in Nigeria we put a lot of milk and sugar maybe some honey to sweeten our tea. That’s not the type of tea to use for your hair OK?

The type of tea to be used is either black tea or green tea preferably decaffeinated. You do not need to add sugar, milk, honey or anything else. Black tea is great if you want to have a dark tint on your hair while green tea preferable if you have dry hair. It has less caffeine.
