Scalp problems? Try the Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo | Review

In our search of natural products for our hair, the biggest quest is to find a sodium laureth – lauryl sulfate free shampoo. And even better, one that has natural ingredients instead of artificial ones.

That’s why the Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo is the subject today of my review: this particular invigorating type of shampoo is enriched with certified organic botanicals – and that means no harsh chemicals.


I have seborrheic dermatitis and have always had to depend on medicated products, both ‘over the counter’ and prescription, which almost all contain sulfates. I tried this, and saw an immediate improvement, in fact, a lot of my scalp problems seem to have been related to the sulfates. tea tree oil shampoo

This works better than anything else I've ever used, especially if I also do a mild apple cider vinegar rinse between my shampoo and conditioner once every week or two to adjust the pH level of my scalp (1 T. ACV to one cup of water slowly poured over head an squished in).

It leaves no lingering smell. Used too often it can further aggravate your scalp. Other tea tree oil products I've tried do not compare, including Paul Mitchell.


You need to leave the Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat (what a name, huh?) on your head for a few minutes for most benefit. I only wash with the shampoo about every 7-10 days, "co-washing" (washing with the conditioner) in between as needed.


I like the conditioner, too. It's not heavy  and is sufficient for most as a daily conditioner. If you feel you need some additional conditioning, their Direct Leave-In Conditioner is very good, too - very moisturizing but not at all heavy or greasy.


5 stars!

Treating Yeast Infections with tea tree oil gels

Yes, tea tree oil is good for acne, but it’s not the only use for this wonderful oil:
We can treat Candidiasis or commonly called yeast infection, with pure tea tree oil, and many other fungal infections too.

Its current clinical use stems mainly from its antifungal activity, especially when treating Candida albicans. For this reason, it has been the subject of tests that have been proven effective preventing and treating yeast infection, along to common antifungals in cases of vaginitis.
The antipruritic and anti-inflammatory effect of organic tea tree oil improves the recovery of the affected area because it reduces the inconvenience and possible reinfections caused by the scraping.

Using extracts of Melaleuca alternifolia gels in our daily hygiene, with slightly alkaline pH, has been shown to have a preventive effect by eliminating fungi and yeast from the external genital area and skin folds, which could act as a reservoir of candidas causing reinfections.

Autralian Tea Tree oil contributes to the eradication of fungi and yeast, since in these cases, excess acidity in the zone would promote their growth and spread.

In addition to yeast infections, gels of Melaleuca alternifolia are useful for skin irritation in which there may be an infection by Candida.

Such conditions are known to generally affect areas where the skin folds, like armpits and under the breasts, with higher incidence in obese people.
