Aside from Hugh Jackman, one of the best exports out of Australia is the all-around wonder product: tea tree oil. You may have heard of this distinctive ingredient that has been used for hundreds of years as a natural cure for a myriad of health issues, but you probably haven’t heard about the benefits for your scalp and hair!
For one thing, tea tree oil is a natural repellent for bugs, specifically lice and bacteria. It also contains an important element called terpinen, which is an anti-inflammatory, as well as special anti-fungal and antiviral properties.
Although preventing lice is the main reason I developed my Boo! Product line, I’ve found that the Boo! Shampoo and Boo! Spray also help maintain a healthy scalp and prevent dandruff. My special formula, which features tea tree oil, also works as a dandruff shampoo for kids. Yes, kids get dandruff, especially in dry winter months! (Don’t worry; it’s not contagious, just irritating and sometimes embarrassing.)
- They kill the bacterium that causes the overproduction of skin cells, aka dandruff.
- They unclog hair follicles and clear up the bacterial infection that causes the dandruff.
- The shampoo used in conjunction with the lice prevention spray keeps the scalp hydrated and soothes irritation caused by cold weather or allergens.
There you have it. Daily use of Boo! Shampoo and Boo! Spray is the best and easiest way to get rid of pesky dandruff and keep lice at bay. And the less you have to fuss with your kids’ lice and dandruff, well, the more time you have to appreciate Hugh Jackman. Win/win.
