You may have realized that we use tea tree essential oil in our famous Hair Growth products. Well today we want you to know the benefits of that ingredient so you will understand why we love it! Tea tree oil has many properties such as anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial which can be really beneficial for your scalp and hair. For scalp conditions, we have dandruff, psoriasis, eczema, dry or irritated scalp and fight off scalp infections. For the hair part, it can help to unclog hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth. Additionally, tea tree oil has been shown to have a positive effect on hair strength and luster. If you have it, you can use it as a treatment by adding a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner, or by massaging it directly into the scalp. It's important to note that tea tree oil is a strong irritant and should be used with caution. It is important to always do a patch test before using and always dilute the oil with a carrier oil like coconut, olive or sweet almond oil. Eh Voila! That's why you will find tea tree oil in our shikakai and shea butter shampoo bar, nourishing oil and moisturizing lotion!
