Tea Tree Oil For Dandruff and Seborrheic Dermatitis!     

Tea Tree Oil Shampoo May Help Dandruff and Those with Seborrhea or Seborrheic Dermatitis

Researchers recently conducted a randomized, single-blind, parallel-group study to evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of 5% tea tree oil and placebo in patients with mild to moderate dandruff. Tea tree oil was chosen for this study because it has antifungal properties with activity against Pityrosporum ovale, yeast that appears to be related to the development of dandruff. The results of the study showed that five percent tea tree oil appears to be effective and well tolerated in the treatment of dandruff. In addition to that, researchers determined that there were no significant adverse effects related to the tea tree oil shampoo. In fact, the placebo group had recorded more adverse events. These, however, were mild. More research in this area would help to confirm these findings. Source: The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, 2002.

Tea tree oil is also often used for acne including scalp acne and scalp pimples. These scalp bumps are caused by specific bacteria that can be eliminated when using the correct shampoo.

Seborrheic Dermatitis Definition: In laymen's terms it is a bad case of dandruff that stays with you. Even if you love your current shampoo it is most likely contributing to raising your scalp skin's ph allowing the seborrhea problem to grow.
