Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo

Shampoo might seem like a very trivial part of your haircare routine. Many people simply buy shampoo because its packaging appeals to them. The model on the pack has such long and beautifully strong hair. Your mind tends to believe that that will be the result when you use the shampoo.

So you go about your life using this shampoo. Not much thought is put into what its ingredients are or how they will positively or negatively affect the health of your hair.

Until something happens. It may be age, an illness, medication or just prolonged bad quality shampoo.

For most people, the first reaction is to get a good treatment regime. A really expensive oil treatment or masque. Something that promises heaven on earth for your hair.

Thing is, without getting the basics right, you are laying a bad foundation for your hair health. You are depriving your hair of nutrients that it needs. You are building on to the already existing build-up. You just aren’t treating your hair right.

That’s where for me, and this should be the case for everyone, your shampoo should be as great as the last product in your hair care routine.

A closer look at the ingredients. Knowing what works for your hair type. Being aware of your hairs specific needs. That is important. When I use a shampoo, I really get to know all about it and what it constitutes.

What is Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo?

As the name suggests, this is a shampoo that has tea tree oil as one of its main ingredients.

In their official website, the manufacturers claim that the special ingredients and tea tree oil in the shampoo rid hair of impurities leaving it full of vitality.

It has a refreshing tingle that they claim wakes up weary hair and spirits.

From the list of ingredients, coupled with my experience with different shampoos and extensive research about their ingredients, I was very hopeful that it would eliminate dandruff.

Many users have testified to this too.

Another great quality it has is that the ingredients are natural or as close to the natural state as possible. They are vegan too!

Tea Tree Oil

Treats Dandruff

A fungal, or any other type of infection such as dandruff can hinder the healthy growth of hair. It causes imbalance and irritation causing itching. Scratching the skin results in damage. This, in turn, interferes with the healthy growth of your hair. Fungi occur naturally in the skin but when there’s is a fungal infection, this increase in fungi will disrupt the growth cycle in one way or another.

The microbial properties of tea tree oil fight the fungi that harm your scalp and leave your hair to grow strong and healthy

Cleanses and Clarifies

Tea tree oil will thoroughly cleanse your scalp ridding it of sebum, dirt and toxin buildup.

By so doing, the hair is left clean and open to absorb nutrients. The nutrients then leave you with healthy, thick follicles. It also means that those that were previously deprived of nutrients making them thin now can bounce back to health.

The follicles that had completely stopped growing also rejuvenate and begin to thrive under these new healthy conditions.


Controls Sebum Production

Tea tree oil plays the important role of controlling the production of oil in the skin. Sebum is produced by the skin to keep our hair and skin healthy. It does so by forming a protective barrier around the dermis

Excess sebum production can cause dandruff and even acne. It also leaves your hair feeling and looking greasy causing discomfort.

Paul Mitchell tea tree special shampoo contains a blend of natural oils and extracts that are combined to keep your hair healthy, strong and lustrous. Its high-quality ingredients allow you get unmatched value for your money.

This shampoo is perfect for mild infections like dandruff. It is however not medicated, so if you have a more severe scalp infection you might want to get a medicated shampoo to use once or twice a week in addition. This, of course, means that you would spend more money than you would if you simply chose a medicated shampoo.

The scent is absolutely great! It is refreshing and in my opinion, it does awaken your spirits and give your morning some spring.

Of concern to me, though, is that it contains SLS. This doesn’t augur well with many because research has shown that this can be harmful. In fact, most hair care products are now being made without probes and SLS.

If you are looking for a shampoo that suits all hair types and makes use of the wonderful underutilized benefits nature has to offer, then this shampoo is for you.
