Essential oils have many benefits and people use them in different ways, but it can be difficult to know how to use them if you’ve never used them before. Some use this oil to help with acne and pimples, but my skin is too sensitive for me to use it in that way so when using this oil my focus is on my scalp. Here are a few ways which I use tea tree oil.
I have dry scalp which can sometimes lead to dandruff. Tea tree oil is both anti- bacterial and anti-fungal so it is great to use either to prevent dandruff or get rid of it, it is also pretty good for dry scalp. The first way that I use this oil is by mixing a few drops into my shampoo.
I am a huge fan of hot oil treatments to help with my dry scalp so I will add 5 drops of tea tree oil to whatever oil mixture I am using that day. Tea tree oil also stimulates blood flow to the scalp meaning that after you apply it there is a cooling sensation on your scalp which it great after you have been waiting to itch your scalp.
Scalp elixir, I will be u writing a post on my weekly hair routine soon, but if my scalp is looking and feeling dry and itchy on the days that I am refreshing my hair I will mix about 5 drops of this oil into whatever oil I’m using that day and massage it into my scalp to help clear some of the build-up, but also to relieve the itchiness. This is a great way for people who love weaves to use tea tree oil between washes.
