    As we mentioned, tea tree oil is also known as melaleuca oil. Used mainly in skin cosmetics, it is a wonderful ingredient for having antiseptic, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties! Thus, it is mainly indicated for people with scalp problems, such as dandruff and irritation. Just be careful if your skin is sensitive, okay?

    Although it may seem counterintuitive, using tea tree oil on very oily hair helps to regulate natural oil production! So if you suffer from oily hair and its consequences, try adding tea tree oil to your hair care routine.


    Because it contains antioxidants, tea tree oil is wonderful as an anti-inflammatory. Using it helps to curb the negative effects of inflammation on the scalp, such as hair loss! So if you are noticing signs of inflammation or hair thinning, try adding this oil to your shampoo.

    Our recommendation is to combine the use of this oil with some protein treatment products, such as the Deep Cleansing Shampoo from the Real Brazilian Hair Protein kit, by RIOBELO!

    Along with its antioxidant, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties, tea tree oil is also antifungal! As such, it is also a great treatment for dandruff, an extremely unpleasant situation. Not only do the dandruff flakes usually diminish or even disappear, but the itching also stops when using it!

    The benefits we have shown are sensational, aren’t they? The use of tea tree oil is a way to give back health to the scalp and the hair!
