Melaleuca Alternafolia (Tea Tree Oil)
Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, is well-known for its powerful antiseptic properties.
Tea tree’s primary active ingredients include terpene hydrocarbons, monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. It is these compounds that give tea tree its antibacterial activity. Tea tree oil has proven very beneficial for the health of your hair and scalp. Like coconut oil for hair, tea tree oil has the ability to soothe dry, flaking scalp and remove dandruff.
