Homemade Tea Tree Oil shampoo

I love the Paul Mitchell's TTO (tea tree oil) shampoo but my wallet does not love the price tag at all!! Each time I visit SIL & BIL, I'd use their Paul Mitchell TTO and I'd stay in the shower practically massaging my scalp with the shampoo. I just love the tingly effect on the scalp and the mini-fingers all over my hair even after the shower.

I would constantly search for the "generic" version but the generic version just didn't have the "mini-fingers" effect that I craved. I'll be honest here, losing my sight so quickly, I start to crave sensation because the remaining senses are so heightened to the point where sensation is quite euphoric for me. Some will say, it's just shampoo!! For me, it's a sensation I enjoy ... tingling and smelling at the same time.

I was able to capture the exact sensation and scent- I found the generic and frugal solution to Paul Mitchell's TTO shampoo!

It's not only Tea Tree Oil, it's also Peppermint Oil as well! Tea Tree Oil adds the cooling effect whereas Peppermint Oil adds the tingling effect.

I use the "personal care" oils as it's cheaper for me, both bottles cost me $8.95 each. The pure and concentrated oils cost $29.99 each and I didn't have that kind of money.

I put 25+ drops of each oils in the shampoo bottle. You can use your favourite shampoo and conditioner. Just make sure you shake the bottle(s) well.

Enjoy your generic and homemade tea tree oil shampoo and conditioner!

I love Paul Mitchell! I've been using shampoo and hairspray for half a decade now. I caught a glimpse of it from the store, but I wasn't sure until I hear from someone else first. I will give it a try sometime soon!

We got that for Christmas from a friend, and I like it but not in wintertime when it feels so cold!, I don't use it everyday (but I don't use shampoo everyday anyway). I'm glad you found a great cost-saving solution for having tea tree shampoo.

I always put some drops of tea tree oil in a regular shampoo and lasts intil the bottle is finished. So, only some drops for each shampoo bottle.
