Tea tree oil for your hair has been used for decades for its therapeutic properties.

This essential oil is now used in a variety of products that are designed to help you feel healthier and happier.

But what is it?

The history of tea tree oil

Tea tree oil for your hair has been used since at least the 1920s in Australia.

Its common name was likely inspired by the famed Captain Cook, who described the shrub as one he had used to make a tea replacement.

The modern use of tea tree oil has exploded in the 21st century. Thanks to its natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, it is used for everything from treating acne to athlete’s foot, but it is also great at calming the skin.

You can also find it in Head & Shoulders, in our Tea Tree shampoo infused with a complex of tea tree oil and cooling mint.

Our Tea Tree + Mint Complex

Incorporating tea tree oil and a cooling mint formula, Head & Shoulders Tea Tree shampoo purifies and cleanses your whole scalp, while providing a pleasantly cool sensation and great fragrance.

Like all Head & Shoulders products, it has great dandruff fighting capabilities, helping to protect your scalp from Malassezia globosa while also cleansing your scalp of the excess oils that can lead to greasy hair.

Our Tea Tree Shampoo gives you the tools you need to fight dandruff, while calming and cooling your scalp to ease discomfort.
