How Tea Tree Oil Can Change The Game For Your Scalp
Tea tree oil is anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal in nature, which can help soothe an itchy, irritated scalp and ward off conditions like dandruff.
If you have an oily scalp, you likely have an excess amount of sebum being produced in your scalp, which tea tree oil can combat to keep your scalp (and hair) feeling fresh.
However, tea tree oil has some disadvantages to look out for, particularly for those with sensitive skin. It can potentially agitate sensitive skin, especially if you use too much.
To incorporate tea tree oil into your scalp care routine, choose one that isn’t too concentrated and mix a couple of drops with a less potent carrier oil, like coconut.
Or you can add a few drops to your regular shampoo or conditioner, but only if tea tree oil isn’t already an ingredient, as high amounts will cause irritation.
