Who’d have thought that native Australians would have found a secret weapon in the form of tea tree oil? Tea tree oil, derived from the indigenous Melaleuca alternifolia tree leaves, was initially used by the natives to cure burns, cuts, and infections on the skin. They would crush up the leaves until they become a paste before applying it to their wounds. Thankfully, we now have the pure form of tea tree oil, which has been shown to be beneficial for both the skin and hair. Tea tree oil can potentially solve several hair problems, such as the following:
While dandruff is often harmless, the look of white flakes of dead skin on the hair can be unsettling. They can be caused by a dry or oily scalp, as well as an overabundance of the yeast-like malassezia, which is produced by improper hair washing. One of the most non-invasive ways to get rid of dandruff is by using tea tree hair products or massaging tea tree oil directly on the scalp. Due to its anti-fungal and anti-microbial characteristics, tea tree oil can remove or prevent dandruff by clearing the scalp of sebum, grime, and dead skin accumulation.
Massaging tea tree oil on the scalp stimulates blood circulation, allowing proteins to penetrate deeper into the hair follicles and nourishes the roots, thus accelerating hair growth. Dandruff-infected hair can also leads to hair loss as an itchy scalp can result in hair breakage if you’re scratching frequently. By applying tea tree oil, it helps to unclog follicles and removes any toxins from the scalp, creating a healthier environment for your hair to grow stronger and better-looking, and preventing hair fallout.
Split ends are when the ends of the hair become dry and brittle due to constant exposure to heat tools such as blow dryers, straighteners, and curlers, and extreme weather conditions. Unfortunately, there’s no proven method to repair split ends, though there are ways to make the damage less apparent. One way is by hydrating the hair with tea tree oil. Simply add a few teaspoons of tea tree oil into your conditioner or hair masks to moisturize the scalp.
When it comes to eliminating head lice, it’s best to avoid using insecticidal lice shampoos as they can be too harsh on our skins, triggering allergies and irritations. Instead, natural home remedies are recommended, specifically tea tree oil, which is an incredible insecticide due to its anti-fungal properties. Put a few drops of tea tree oil onto the scalp and leave it on overnight before combing the hair to remove the dead lice. Tea tree oil can also prevent existing lice eggs from hatching.
