Tea Tree Oil for Hair: Benefits of Tea Tree Shampoo, Conditioner & Treatments

Lorie Knickle August 05, 2020

Products containing tea tree oil for hair have loads of benefits for healthy locks. Tea tree shampoo, conditioner and treatments hold therapeutic properties to care for your hair and scalp, while cleansing and moisturizing. If you suffer from an itchy, irritated scalp, products containing tea tree can help soothe and restore. Tea tree oil is not limited to cleansing; leave-in styling and treatment products continue to give you benefits all day long.  

Also known as melaleuca, this aromatic essential oil has been used as an herbal remedy throughout history due to its antiseptic properties. It’s antifungal and anti-inflammatory as well, which helps your scalp by gently removing impurities and buildup that can clog hair follicles. When dandruff and dead skin obstruct follicles, hair growth is slowed, so it is very important to maintain a healthy scalp to grow those luscious locks! 

Here are my top picks for products containing tea tree oil for hair!

Tea Tree Shampoo  Tea Tree Conditioner This tea tree shampoo and conditioner combo is a fan-favourite and it’s no wonder why! Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Special Color shampoo cleanses gently and contains rooibos botanicals to protect hair colour. The mix of tea tree oil, peppermint and lavender, leaves scalp tingly, soothed and refreshed. The conditioner is nice and light, leaving hair moisturized and free of tangles without weighing it down.

Tea Tree Shampoo Conditioner Body Wash For all-over care, I recommend American Crew 3-in-1 Tea Tree. It’s a tea tree shampoo, conditioner and body wash in one bottle for fast and easy clean-up! This multi-tasker is so refreshing and invigorating, it awakens your senses and makes your skin feel amazing.  
Tea Tree Treatment Frizz Control  Soothe and moisturize dry hair all day long with Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moisture Milk. It's great for dry or curly hair types to minimize frizz while creating softness and shine. It not only contains the soothing properties of tea tree oil, but also a mixture of monoi, pequi and jojoba oils to nourish, and pampering lavender and peppermint to indulge your senses.
 Tea Tree Styling Cream For shorter styles that can be shaped and reshaped easily with a very lightweight feel, try Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shaping Cream. It gives your style staying power without crunch and allows you to easily rework your style throughout the day to suit your mood.
 Tea Tree Styling Give your blowout a soothing feel with Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Lavender Mint Taming Cream. It has all the benefits of tea tree oil plus the nourishing properties of a moisturizing oil blend, and fights frizz to make natural styles softer and more manageable.


We've talked a lot about tea tree oil for hair, but let’s talk skin, too! The same antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties that care for your scalp can benefit the rest of your skin as well.


Tea Tree Oil For Hair and Body This versatile pick can be used on hair and skin! The Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Hair and Body Moisturizer is a perfect after-shave lotion to help heal nicks and irritation. Apply to hair as a moisturizing, detangling leave-in or to your body to soothe and moisturize.
 Tea Tree Face Wash Try Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash to unclog pores and follicles while brightening skin for a more youthful complexion. The mixture of menthol, camphor, balm mint, eucalyptus and tea tree invigorates skin while calming irritation.

 Tea Tree Wax GiGi Tea Tree Creme Wax makes at-home waxing a smoother experience! The soothing and healing properties of tea tree helps to minimize skin irritation while waxing, leaving skin silky and happy.

just trying the tree tea product to see if it is as good as i’ve heard it is. My hair is low growing so i’m just starting to use the Paul Mitchell products to test it out.
