However, you can make your own tea tree shampoo easily at home to avoid the steep costs of this kind of hair care product.
Having a good recipe on hand for a quality shampoo that you make at home can change the way that you care for your hair!
How to Make Tea Tree Shampoo
You will need the following ingredients:
- 10 drops of lavender oil
- 15 drops of rosemary oil
- 10 drops of tea tree oil
- 2 tbsp of sweet almond oil
- 1 cup of a shampoo base of your choosing
- 1 tbsp Vitamin E oil
If your hair is oily, you can add 15 drops of basil oil, or you can increase your tea tree oil to 25 drops. You might also want to add ¼ cup of honey if you are making shampoo for oily hair. Fine hair can benefit from 20 drops of chamomile roman oil, 20 drops of lavender oil, and tea tree oil in the amount of 15 drops. You might also want to add ¼ can of coconut milk to any of these mixtures for added moisturizing benefits.
Mix all of the ingredients that you have selected in a squeeze bottle and shake well. You will not see foamy lather when you use this kind of shampoo, but the texture will feel luxurious and really nice on your skin. The shampoo that you have made will last for about a week. You will need to store it in the fridge as well to prevent the natural ingredients from spoiling. If you want your shampoo to be warm when you use it, separate the right amount of product into a smaller bottles and allow it to warm up in the shower before you apply it to your hair and scalp.
