Glory Be! It’s Tea Tree and Vitamin E!!

6 Jun

Ok yall!!  For the last few weeks I have been asking for help via Facebook for a host of random ailments.  I’ll start with my itchy scalp that wreaks havoc when the seasons change.  In addition, I swear I had an allergic reaction to some random hair product I tried!  I had been looking for a natural leave-in treatment that would give me a tingly, feel-good, “I’m healing you now” sensation.  I got a bunch of responses from homemade elixirs to store bought scores.  I ended up buying a tiny bottle of Derma E Tea Tree and E Oil, and massaging tiny drops of it onto all the problem areas of my scalp.

Hallelujah!!!  I felt that feeling!!  I smelled medicinal, but felt magical.  I decided not to wash it out.  I woke up late, took a lightening speed hobo bath, went to work, went straight out after, and no one commented on my head smelling weird!!  I washed it out with a natural rosemary and mint shampoo the next day, and reapplied!!

The shit works.  I had full relief in 3 days.  Please keep in mind that I have super thick, dry, curly hair.  If you’re working with the opposite, the leave-in idea might not be the move.  Otherwise, have at it!!!

Next up on the list was this cold/allergy bullshit that hit me like a ton of bricks.  Over the course of 4 days, I lost my voice entirely with brief periods of being able to communicate using the voice of a small child or a phone sex operator.  The evenings were the worst.  Each miniature breath I would take was followed by 3 consecutive coughs.  I annoyed myself so much that I started breathing into random objects.  I tried tying a scarf around my face, breathing into a pillow, breathing in the steam from my tea, and nothing worked!!  Da fuuuuuck!?!??  It felt like I was allergic to air.  I tried to pinch my nose and hold my breath, since breathing = coughing.  I had just rubbed that magic oil into my scalp, and now it was on my nostrils!!  That tingly, feel-good, “I’m healing you” sensation was back!  It almost had a calming effect. This time it seemed to make the air breathable again as it entered my airways!

Glory Be!!!  I thought that I could make it through the night if I just put enough AROUND my nose that I could breath in without coughing. It worked!!  I woke up and thought I should hit the store for some Vicks since this concept was working for me.  I checked out the packaging and read that you actually aren’t supposed to get Vicks on your nostrils.  Who knew??!?!  What the hell is the point!?!?  What’s in that stuff?? Don’t they make lil sniffer tubes of that shit specifically for putting up your nose?!?!  I put the package back down and bought another bottle of Derma E Tea Tree and E Oil.  Seems to be doing the trick…

NOTE: I am NOT putting it UP my nose, snorting drips, or any of the like. Just rubbing little dabs around my nostrils…capisce?!?

Who knows what else this little bottle of magic will fix!!!

If you know me, you have most definitely seen my hair when it is out of control. The only shampoo and conditioner that EVER give me relief are Tressa’a Quench Shampoo and Conditioner.

Shout outs to Diane McShane’s Hair Salon in Erie, PA for putting me on!! It is definitely always on my list of things to pick up when I head home. Be sure to stop in and scoop some if you are in the area, and ask for Kristy or Lindsay if you need a cut!

If you are reading this from out of the area, be sure to get your google on for these products. Especially if your hair is dried out, naturally curly, or in need of a lil TLC.
