Worthless: Green tea, like apple cider vinegar, is promoted as "good for everything" without any real studies, which should tell you something. People make this stuff up as entertainment / pranks. Almost everything you read online about "DHT and male pattern baldness" is misleading. If you've got hair loss you want managed, ask your physician about medical / surgical options. Choose based on facts.

Will not help hair: grow or stop alopecia. Studies show that green tea can have antioxidant & anti-carcinogenic effects as well as V’ing risk for heart disease . It can be used as a plant based alternative for glycemic control.
