Every woman wants a healthy, shiny, strong hair and many are willing to pay a lot on cosmetic products which promise to offer these results. Unfortunately, the chemicals in these products do more harm than good.
So why not choose a natural ingredient, with no side effects? Tea tree oil can protect your hair from damaging factors and keep it looking great.
Tea tree oil has antiseptic, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties which are important for your scalp and hair health. They unclog hair follicles, destroy toxins and provide deep-down cleansing.
Shampoo with tea tree oil
You can add some tea tree oil into your shampoo to benefit from a deep-down cleansing for your hair follicles and protect your hair.
If you want to make your own tea tree oil shampoo, mix 8-10 drops of oil for every 30 ml of your shampoo. You can also add 4-5 drops of lavender oil and 4-5 drops of tea tree oil into the shampoo, massage it into your scalp and leave it for 5 minutes. Rinse with water.
Coconut oil and tea tree oil mask
Coconut oil is another amazing oil for your hair. It has powerful antifungal and antibacterial properties. Mix 3-4 drops of tea tree oil and one tablespoon of coconut oil and gently massage into your scalp. Leave for half an hour and then wash your hair as usual.
Castor oil and tea tree oil mask
Castor oil can help increase shine in your hair, stimulate growth, kill bacteria and reduce split ends. Mix one tablespoon of castor oil and one of jojoba oil with 4-6 drops of tea tree oil. Gently massage the oil into your scalp, wrap your hair in a towel and leave for 4-8 hours. Wash your hair as normal.
Healthy scalp with tea tree oil
Tea tree oil can keep your scalp clean and prevent it from toxins and oil buildup. Its antibacterial properties will also kill bacteria-related infections. Massage into your scalp some tea tree oil mixed with olive or coconut oil to maintain a healthy scalp and promote blood flow.
Promote hair growth
Sometimes hair loss can be caused by hair follicles becoming inflamed or clogged by the harsh products used on the hair. Tea tree oil can help traditional hair re-growth products work more efficiently. Scientists discovered that mixing tea tree oil with minoxidil (a drug used to promote hair growth) and diclofenac (an anti-inflammatory drug) was far more efficient than using minoxidil alone.
Dandruff can be caused by a fungi or yeast infection. Tea tree oil can fight these infections and restore the health of the scalp. According to a recent study, tea tree oil can also treat seborrheic dermatitis and can fight 54 strains of yeast.
Always remember to mix tea tree oil with another carrier oil when applied directly to the skin to prevent irritations. Try using this natural ingredient to keep your hair healthy and strong and stop using the harmful products found on the market.
