Against The Grain
My husband had a serious dandruff problem. I looked up dandruff online and found out that Tea Tree Oil might do the trick! So, we added a drop to shampoo he had in his hand and the next day he had no dandruff! Now he adds a few drops of tea tree oil to his shampoo bottle every time he gets a new one and he no longer has a dandruff problem…what an easy and simple solution! Now he still gets to use the shampoo he likes instead of those nasty smelling dandruff shampoos and it works great!
Why does Tea Trea Oil eliminate dandruff?
Tea Tree Oil has hydrocarbons called terpenes in it. Terpenes fight many funguses, including Malassezia. Malassezia is one of the most common causes of dandruff. It is a yeast-like fungus that can lead to extreme skin cell growth. When these cells die they become dandruff.
According to a study done called, Treatment of dandruff with 5% tea tree oil shampoo, Tea Tree Oil proved effective for the treatment of dandruff!
Luckily this awesome oil is easy to get your hands on through Young Living, that’s how I got hooked on it! You can learn more about Tea Tree uses here. If you want to order some, check out the order page here!
