Tea Tree Oil for Dry Scalp

A Home Remedy for Dry Scalp

Mix 1/3 to 1/2 dropper of Tea Tree Oil into your favorite shampoo.  Mix and shampoo as you normally do.

Tip:  Shake the shampoo mixture before each use because the oil will separate from the shampoo.

Because of the name, the ‘oil‘ will not leave your hair greasy.  It will also clean the scalp, help eliminate dandruff, unclog hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.
