Why Is Tea Tree Oil Healthy for Hair?
Tea tree essential oil is derived from Melaleuca alternifolia herb, native to Australia. Native Australians have used tea tree essential oil for various purposes for hundreds of years. They would crush dried leaves of tea tree plants to extract oil and inhale its scent to soothe the cough and cold symptoms. It was also a common ingredient in their skin and hair care routines. They spoke highly of tea tree oil’s benefits and its healing properties. It is believed that the eighteenth-century sailors took tea tree plants from Australia with them to England. It did not take long for tea tree oil to gain popularity in other areas of the world.
Tea tree oil is soothing for various skincare concerns such as acne, irritation, itchiness, inflammation, and dryness. Not just for the skin, tea tree oil is exceptionally healthy for the hair and scalp. Today, tea tree essential oil is an active ingredient in many shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, and personal care products because of its profound benefits.

Here are the benefits of using Botanic Hearth's Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner:
Dryness is a common scalp condition that occurs to a large population of people. Although dryness is not the direct cause of hair loss or thinning of hair, yet it affects the scalp's health significantly. The itchiness and irritation caused by dryness make you want to scratch your scalp. As a result of scratching, hair follicles and oil glands get damaged, and this can cause infections and increased hair loss.
Scalp dryness can happen because of a lack of moisturization, frequent hair washing, environmental factors, cold, dry weather, and existing skin conditions. Tea tree essential oil is an exceptionally hydrating oil for dry hair. It soothes dryness and comforts an itchy and irritated scalp, promoting the scalp's health.
Environmental pollution is one of the leading causes that affect the scalp's health. Our hair is often exposed and unprotected to the damaging effects of pollutants and toxins. These environmental factors cause irritations, infections, hair breakage, and dryness on the scalp. They exert oxidative stress on the hair, leaving it looking dull, unhealthy, and rough. Tea tree essential oil has antioxidant properties that help protect the scalp from the harmful effects of external stressors and UV rays. It helps strengthen the scalp's health and promotes shiny and voluminous hair.
Every day our skin and hair come into contact with millions of germs and bacteria present in the atmosphere. These impurities settle on our scalp and can lead to various hair care concerns. Besides, our skin sheds dead skin cells over intervals of every 20-25 days. Some unshed dead skin cells remain on the scalp’s surface if not cleaned properly, clogging pores, and hindering hair growth. Together these factors of dirt buildup, unshed dead skin cells, and impurities affect the scalp's health and cause flaky patches, irritations, and increased hair fall.
Tea tree oil is an incredible antioxidant that cleanses off impurities, excess oils, dead skin cells, and dirt buildup from the scalp. It refreshes and rejuvenates the troubled scalp, leaving it healthy and clean. After thorough detoxification, the scalp can absorb nutrients and soak up hydration that you introduce to it through conditioners and oils.
