Why Is Tea Tree Oil Necessary in Your Skin and Hair Care Routine
Tea tree oil is also known as melaleuca oil. This is an essential oil obtained from a tea tree, an Australian native. Oil manufacturers steam the leaves of tea trees, which results in the formation of tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil is useful for a wide range of purposes, including its purpose as a remedy for certain hair and skin conditions. This oil can be found in household cleaning products and topical medicines. It is also used in several over-the-counter skincare products such as lotions and soaps.
This oil is generally safe to use, and when used topically it helps in treating different hair and skin conditions. However, if you have sensitive skin, talk to your dermatologist before using tea tree oil, since it may cause contact dermatitis.
It is important not to consume tea tree oil orally because it can be toxic if consumed that way.
Tea tree oil offers great benefits for your hair. If you are considering using this essential oil in your hair care routine, read the next lines to find out about the different ways it can be used for maximum benefits.
Lock your Locks with Good Health
Tea tree oil promotes hair health by treating dandruff. Shampoo with tea tree oil was shown to reduce dandruff effectively after four weeks of use.
While dandruff is not a serious threat to your health, it can be annoying and embarrassing. Research shows that tea tree oil shampoos can address dandruff successfully.
Antifungal properties of tea tree oil are believed to be the reason behind the oil’s efficacy in treating dandruff. In addition, tea tree oil has an acidic pH that is slightly more than that of the skin. This nature of the oil makes it efficient at clearing scales caused by dandruff.
When you regularly apply shampoo with tea tree oil, your hair regains its natural luster. With regular use, you can also get rid of scalp irritations.
Strengthens Hair by Reducing Build-up
Shampoos with harsh chemicals leave back remnants of the product on the hair. Add to this dead skin cells and impurities from around the surroundings, and your hair follicles get clogged. Build-up prevents nutrients from reaching your strands and increases the oiliness of the hair.
Additionally, this build-up can cause your hair strands to sag and weaken under the weight. Such strands are vulnerable to damage.
Using a shampoo with tea tree oil will prevent build-up. As build-up reduces, hair retains its natural moisturization, which keeps your hair healthy and strong.
Get Rid of Head Lice
Head lice are unhygienic and can be frustrating, especially for children. Research shows that tea tree oil can address the head lice problem. When used in combination with lavender oil, it has been found to be effective at eradicating lice.
Another research cites the antimicrobial properties of tea tree oil as a reason for its efficacy against acne symptoms. The efficacy of the oil is due to the presence of 80-90% of monoterpenes, which are known antiviral components.
In yet another study, it was revealed that natural tea tree oil was as effective as benzoyl peroxide, a common medicine for acne. The study was conducted on 123 patients, and the results about the potency of the oil in addressing acne were encouraging.
Eases Symptoms of Athlete’s Foot
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection usually seen in the region between the toes. Individuals that sweat heavily on their feet and those that work in moist conditions for long hours are prone to developing athlete’s foot. Symptoms include rashes with a burning sensation, itching, and stinging.
A cosmetic formulation such as a cream with tea tree oil, applied two times a day for a month, can offer relief from symptoms of Athlete’s foot.
Soothes Inflamed Skin
Contact hypersensitivity, a type of skin irritation resulting from skin exposure to allergens, responds effectively to tea tree oil. Nickel is a common allergen that causes redness, itchiness, and pain in the affected areas of the skin.
The excellent antiseptic and antimicrobial properties of tea tree oil come in handy in soothing skin wounds, cuts, boils, and abrasions. Specific staph infections may also respond well to tea tree oil.
The antiseptic property of the essential oil is one of the reasons for its use by body piercing artists. Diluted tea tree oil is used on piercings for efficient cleansing, hygiene, and healing.
The anti-inflammatory effect of tea tree oil may be effective against these symptoms. The presence of terpinene-4 in tea tree oil imparts anti-inflammatory properties to the essential oil. This property may help ease psoriasis symptoms.
