  • Warm 1 cup of olive oil slightly for few minutes and add 4 – 6 drops of tea tree oil.
  • Stir it well and apply it on all over your scalp and hair.
  • Massage it gently for few minutes to saturate the oil properly on scalp.
  • Wait for at least 30 minutes to overnight.
  • Rinse off with water and shampoo your hair.
  • Dry your hair properly and continue doing the same process for 3 – 4 weeks to get lengthy hair with shiny texture.

Note: Use any carrier oil like almond oil, jojoba oil or coconut oil or grapeseed oil instead of olive oil in this process. But be sure to add 2 – 4 drops of tea tree oil in 4 – 5 tablespoons of carrier oil and apply it on the scalp to unclog the hair follicles and promote hair growth.
