Wellness Wednesday: Tea Tree Oil for Healthy Hair

I'm sure you've all heard of Tea Tree Oil before, it has a great reputation as an anti-breakout treatment, but in the last year I also discovered how amazing it is for my hair!
A few times a year I would get psoriasis on my scalp (I think that's what it was anyways)...and it was nasty...flakey...gross...embarrassing!  A few months ago when I noticed it coming on I tried out some Tea Tree oil shampoo that I had sitting around.  I had heard that it was good for preventing/getting rid of dandruff, so I thought maybe it would also help with my psoriasis issues as well.  It worked so well, and now I make sure to use Tea Tree oil in my Shampoo on a weekly basis to help prevent any scalp dryness issues.
Tea Tree oil fights bacteria, fungi and viruses, and it makes hair look fresh and shiny.  One of my friends even mentioned that Tea Tree oil Shampoo is great for school aged children to protect them from getting (and treating) head lice!  I also just read that it's great for treating cradle cap in babies....too bad I didn't know that a year ago!
If you want to try this out for yourself all you need to do is add a few drops to your dollop of shampoo before you wash your hair...easy peasy!
The great thing about this oil is that it's not actually one bit oily, so you don't need to worry about greasy hair at all!
You can find this oil in my dōTERRA virtual shop where it's named Melaleuca.
