I've had dandruff for years. I've tried almost everything from salt rinses to medicated shampoos. The only thing that seems to be helping now is Tea-tree oil. I've been using it for almost two weeks and I've noticed a remarkable difference. I've stopped itching my scalp, my hair looks healthier, and the dandruff is going away. Before you use the oil make sure you have no scalp abrasions. You just take some of the oil and gently rub it into your scalp. Wait about two-three hours and shampoo and condition as normal.

What's tea tree oil?

Denise

If you are a teenager, do not use tea tree oil or lavender oil. 'A study published in this week’s (January 31, 2007) issue of the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that repeated topical use of products containing lavender oil and/or tea tree oil may cause prepubertal gynecomastia, a rare condition resulting in enlarged breast tissue in boys prior to puberty, and for which a cause is seldom identified.' go to for the info: .nih.gov/news/pr/jan2007/niehs-31.htm
