Tea Tree Oil is great at killing bacteria and fungus and that is why it can also be used to clear blemishes. The tea tree oil will unclog your scalp pores and provide the moisture your hair follicles needs. Thus, it will prevent hair loss and help maintain a healthy scalp that grows thick healthy hair. This is the treatment I use if my hair gets oily and dirty after whole day out!!! I keep the tea tree oil in my bathroom.
