shampoo-tea-tree-oilWhat is tea tree oil shampoo?

Tea tree oil shampoo is simply shampoo with the oil of the tea tree infused into the mixture. It can be used to effectively treat dry scalp irritations as well as eliminating bacteria and fungus on the scalp. The tea tree oil in shampoo doesn’t cause imbalance in the skin’s natural bacteria and is a natural alternative to harsh chemicals.

Whilst there are many medical shampoos on the market that claim to be anti-fungal, tea tree oil shampoo offers a chemical-free alternative.
