Tea Tree Oil for Hair and ScalpTea Tree Oil is already starting to be picked up by expensive haircare shampoo companies in the market, but really, all you need is a few drops (4-5 drops) of Tea Tree Oil added to a full bottle your favorite scentless shampoo for an effective dandruff-free scalp. Dandruff can clog your pores, and when you itch incessantly, it can cause inflammation and hair loss.
If you wish to use Tea Tree Oil on your scalp, be sure to dilute the oil with a carrier oil such as Sweet Almond or Fractionated Coconut Oil. It may be beneficial to warm up the carrier oil for a few seconds before adding the Tea Tree Oil and applying the mixture to your scalp. The heat will open up your hair follicles and allow the oils to penetrate the scalp so your body can absorb the benefits of the oils.
