No one likes a "bad hair" day. And if that "bad hair" day includes hair loss, it can feel devastating. Even without noticeable hair loss, harsh hair care products or the wrong styling tools can damage hair leaving it hard to manage.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil, with its well-known anti-fungal and cleansing properties, is a natural choice for scalp conditions such as dandruff. According to Livestrong untreated dandruff-buildup can cause hair loss.
Essential Oils for Hair Growth
Our soon-to-be published book on essential oils notes that massage with some essential oils was found to stimulate hair growth. Researchers had a group of men use Minoxidil 2%, an over-the-counter hair loss treatment, and another group applied rosemary essential oil every day to their scalp. Both groups had significant hair growth at 6 months. Both groups experienced scalp itching, however the group applying rosemary essential oil had less scalp itching.

Medical Causes of Hair Loss
Finding the cause of hair loss, and understanding that hair will regrow, can totally change an emotional outlook. After giving birth, some women will lose up to one-third of their head hair but will quickly grow it back within the year. Stressful events, such as a high fever, infection, malnutrition, or excessive dieting can cause a woman to suffer severe hair loss six weeks to three months after the event. Hormonal changes also cause hair loss. Sometimes hair loss is the most prominent symptom of an overactive or underactive thyroid. When testing for thyroid disease, make sure your health provider also checks for Hashimoto's disease, the autoimmune form of thyroid disease. Losing one-third of the outer eyebrow is also a symptom of thyroid disease. This article details more information on hair loss.
Use Melaleuca Original Shampoo, which is rich in T36-C5 and natural conditioners to maintain a clean and healthy scalp. This shampoo soothes, clarifies, and strengthens your hair from root to tip. It is gentle enough to use every day.
Diet and Supplements for Healthy Hair
A nutritious diet that contains adequate calories and protein is crucial. Without proper nutrition, the body uses available nutrients to first nourish more important functions. Proflex20 and Vitality Elevate Ultra-Performance Protein are an easy and delicious way to add necessary protein to the diet.
Salmon and walnuts are listed by WebMD as two of the top ten foods to nourish healthy hair growth. Both foods are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids. The article notes that about 3% of the hair shaft is made up of omega-3 fatty acids.
Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 contains the ideal balance of DHA and EPA fatty acids. Omega-3s are also found in Vitality Omega-3 Creme Delight, Phytomega Heart Health Supplement and Unforgettables.
Researchers are continuing to find multiple benefits to eating more probiotic-containing foods and supplements. Probiotics enhance digestion, helping our bodies to become better nourished from the foods and supplements we eat. It is reported that taking probiotics helps hair grow.
Florify contains a blend of 10 billion colony units of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis. Lactobacillus is the prevalent good bacteria in the small intestine and Bifidobacterium is the most dominant good bacteria in the large intestine.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide tells us that after an extensive study of about one thousand plant extracts, researchers in Japan discovered that proanthocyanidins possess remarkable hair-cycle-converting activity. ProvexCV, and Provex-Plus contain potent forms of proanthocyanidins from grape seed extract.
Affinia and Sei Bella Luxury Hair Care
Sulfate, a common ingredient used in shampoos, can strip hair of moisture, leaving it dry and brittle. Affinia and Sei Bella Luxury Hair Care products are sulfate-free and gluten-free. Affinia comes in three formulas: Moisturizing, Ultra-Moisturizing, and Volumizing. The Affinia line also includes a hair gel, aerosol hairspray, and natural hold hairspray.
Sei Bella Luxury Hair Care goes beyond sulfate-free. No other hair care line has patent-pending Protection Complex Technology. Natural botanicals such as sunflower extract, sandalwood, and soy are combined with new technology to formulate a hair care line that protects hair color, protects against breakage, and offers protection from the effects of heat styling and sun exposure. Some of Sei Bella's unique daily hair treatments are: Hot Iron Prep Spray, Leave-in Detangling & Smoothing Spray, Detoxifying Wash, and Repair Hair Masque.

Melaleuca Herbal Shampoo works! Yes, now I bring my shampoo to my hair salon. I used to come home with itchy and teary eyes because of the salon products, but not anymore. We don't even have to use cream rinse or conditioner, and my long, thick, brown naturally curly hair feels clean because it is clean!
I have used the styling mousse, and have loved the ease of use. It doesn't leave a sticky residue and allows for managing the hair throughout the day. My hair improved in its conditioning and felt wonderful. A little goes a long way! It is a fantastic product.
Before I found Melaleuca's hair care products my hair was always so dry, thin, and would come out by the handfuls when I washed and combed it. I was told it was hormonal by many folks. I'm not sure if they were correct or not, but since using the Sei Bella shampoo, conditioner, and daily treatment my hair doesn't come out by the handfuls when I'm washing or combing it. My hair is so much healthier looking and full. I also take the Vitality Pack for women vitamins which helps my hair to be much healthier. Thank you Melaleuca!!
