Hey y'all. The other day, my scalp felt really itchy. After researching solutions, I decided to put some tea tree oil on it.
Instead of solving my dry scalp woes, the tea tree oil actually burnt my scalp. WTF? I am the saddest.
I discovered this after finding tiny little scabs all over my scalp. (And I know it was the tea tree oil because, out of sheer laziness, I only applied it to half of my scalp in spots that were particularly itchy.)
Tea tree oil helps with dry, itchy scalp ONLY if diluted with other ingredients (in a shampoo or conditioner). Sigh. This is what I get for not being thorough with my research.
Just thought I'd share. Don't let misinformation happen to you! :-/ Stay fabulous!
