    Default Kombucha tea for hair growth

    Yes. I started using kombucha for other reasons. I had never measured or photographed my hair before joining LHC, and have only been a member for a couple of months, so can't really say for sure. However, I can't explain why my hair would have started to grow all of a sudden. I worked up to drinking one pint a day, now make my own to save money. I was amazed when I saw how much length I had gained, plus wonderfully soft and moist skin.

    I think it would work about like apple cider vinegar as a rinse, but you would have to experiment on what dilution to use. I have used it as a scalp and skin wash as well. I love the stuff.

    I drink Kombucha when I feel pretty crummy or if I think a cold is coming on since it helps boost immunity. I usually drink it for about a week, so I don't know if it's done anything to my hair. I might have to start drinking it more often to see.

    I've also heard about something called "redbush tea".
    I think there was even a thread on it here...very recently, lol.

    I have tried Kombucha a few times and had to stop. It made my heart act funny.

    No clue, but it was clearly the kombucha. So yeah, after trying it half a dozen times over the years, I gave up.

    I use it for detoxification. I could only tolerate about two teaspoons at a time when I started using it, so it was a few months before I was using a pint a day.

    It wouldn't surprise me that taking kombucha internally would increase hair growth. I don't know about using it externally on the hair itself. Kombucha is just so wonderful for overall health, I can see it restoring and improving any of the body's functions necessary for healthy hair growth.

    I knew a vegan who swore by kombucha to cure his hangovers. Despite the weekend drinking, he was the healthiest man I've ever known. (Then, maybe, "indirectly BECAUSE OF his weekend drinking". . . .)
    Any time is a good time for coffee time!

    That's interesting Ravenreed because I can definitely feel the kombucha doin it's thing the moment I start drinking it - sometimes it's quite intense to the point where I can't handle it. I've learned to treat it as a medicine.
