  • Gotta agree with the tea tree shampoo. The secret is to let it sit for a few moments to do the work. I learned this from my stylist.

  • Where can you but tea tree oil shampoo at? Do I have to go to a salon or do grocery stores or drug stores generally carry it?

  • My 7 yr old dd uses Paul Mitchell we got at the salon. Not too pricey.

  • My son and I had that same problem... treynlisa is right... Paul Mitchells Tea Tree shampoo and conditioner works wonders... I also use a tea tree oil sometimes in the winter when my head gets dry...
