Tea Tree special formula shampoo has my heart...

Our city has been experiencing some strange weather patterns. 

Snow. Cold. Heat. and rain probably all within a 2 month span....Sometimes not even that. Last year we had all of that in a week span!

I love the cold. I wish it could be cold all year round. What I don't like is the rain AND cold. When the sun comes through and gives us warmth but still at 40 degree weather....Perfection.

While I sit today and hope for no more rain 😑 and scaring my family with my loud sneezing 😄 I wanted to share a few thoughts about this shampoo that was given to me by Maple Holistics. Such a delightful shampoo because the scent is amazing....

Tea Tree Special formula shampoo

Cost: $8.95

Amount in bottle: 8 Ounces

Made with: Aqua, jojoba oil, botanical keratin, argan oil, tea tree oil, lavender oil, and rosemary oil (and other ingredients, see ingredients list in this post).

What is Tea Tree oil? Melaleuca oil from the leaves of a tea tree or Melaleuca alternifolia.

How I feel about this shampoo:

It's pretty good. According to their website, it is suppose to be beneficial in eliminating dry flakes, among other things but this benefit was one that I was hoping for when trying it out. Dry scalp flakes have been the norm for me nearly all my life, no shampoo has really worked for me. I think only once dry scalp stayed away for a good month, but it always comes back. I don't think it's the type or brand of shampoo, I just believe I have really dry scalp up there!

The first time I used MH tea tree I noticed the scent and the feel of my hair. Aside from the scent, my hair felt clean, manageable, semi soft, and was free from a majority of my scalp flakes. I didn't use it continuously because it only came with 8 ounces and I wanted to see a pattern of benefits as I tried it. I used other shampoos between my use of MH. Every time I went back to MH it was like my hair appreciated the pampering. My hair would feel better and stay that way between shampoos. 

Just recently I started experimenting with no shampoo'd hair. It had nothing to do with the MP shampoo I just wanted to see how my hair would act, just wanted to not have to wash it every day. Well I didn't like it much. After the 1st day (or after 15 hrs sometimes) my hair was very oily, dry flakes would stick around longer (even after brushing or combing), it was unmanageable, and oil would make it's way to my face and ears (oily face and ears, yuck). After this revelation no shampooing for a couple of days was out of question because either way, shampoo or not, I will have flakes. I'll just live with that. 

The point is....If I could just have 2 days (maybe 3) where I'd have a very small amount of dry scalp, yes yes and yes! Even if the oil showed up less dramatic by the 2nd or 3rd day - yes again! 

I can do that with this shampoo.

The only thing that keeps me from using MH tea tree every time I shampoo is that it contains only 8 ounces of product. I have long hair, down to my waist nearly...the whole bottle would probably last one month maybe a half longer......So if MH could make a larger bottle for us long haired gals that would be great!
