How to use tea tree oil for hair growth
One of the best oils you can use for hair growth is tea tree oil. If applied directly to the scalp it can cause itchiness or irritation, so it’s probably best to mix tea tree oil with a carrier oil such as olive oil or jojoba oil to get the best results for hair growth.
Tea tree oil is going to provide energy and shine for your hair and will promote hair growth, whereas the olive oil will add smoothness and softness whilst adding a protective layer – this will help make your hair resistant to any environmental toxins.
Here’s how to use tea tree oil for hair growth:-
- Warm up a tablespoon of olive oil in the microwave.
- Add about 4-5 drops of tea tree oil and mix well.
- Apply directly to the scalp and massage gently.
- Let the oil mixture remain on your scalp for at least 2-3 minutes before shampooing and rinsing.
Always make sure you use warm olive oil (or jojoba) and not cold – this is because the oil will mix much better with the tea tree oil when warm.
Repeat the above process daily for at least a couple of weeks and you will begin to see positive results in your hair growth. If you miss applying the tea tree oil one day, don’t double up the next day – just keep going with your hair care routine and be patient.
