Tea Tree - Tick, Lice & Bug Repellant, Hair & Skin Treatment Summer’s Magic Ingredient for Skin & Hair Solutions
Isn’t it amazing how one thing that have so many essential functions? As the days get longer, and we bask in the summer days, we enter the days of summer camp, hiking, and yardwork. While that means fun in the sun, it also means the “Superbug” lice, deer ticks and the threat of Lyme Disease, and gnats and mosquitos swarming. It also means beach hair, which, while sexy, will wreak havoc on your hair’s texture and strength!
If only there were a magic wand that could be waved to remedy all of those summer woes! But wait! There is! Paul Mitchell has harnessed the power of Tea Tree Oil, and as part of their Tea Tree Line, has just launched one of my favorite new products: LAVENDER MINT CONDITIONING LEAVE-IN SPRAY.
Tea tree oil rids hair of impurities and leave hair full of vitality and luster. It’s a natural antiseptic, is refreshing as it tingles, and it’s also a natural bug repellant! Ticks, live and other nuisances hate it. Natural tea tree oil, peppermint and lavender invigorate the scalp and leave hair smelling great. That means that not only are you protecting yourself against insects and vermin, but you are actually protecting your hair against dryness and damage.
I love the entire line, but this product can also be sprayed on the feet and ankles before putting on socks to leave a smell to deter ticks. Kids that use Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Shampoos & Conditioners tend to be the kids that don’t get lice at summer camp. And when I use the Lavender Mint Conditioning Leave-In Spray, the bugs stay away.

The day started with a trip to Danbury, CT to Rica's alma mater, The Paul Mitchell School of Danbury. Ashli Albert, one of Rica's instructors, was aware of her efforts to provide support, care and services to the cancer community, and invited her to speak at Tuesday's "Pow Wow," or morning gathering, in advance of their participation in Cancer Survivor Beauty & Support Day on campus (taking place on Thursday, 6/8). All the Future Professionals gathered as Rica told them her story - from a corporate project manager, with no real health concerns, to a cancer-fighting bad-ass to her current status as a salon owner. Moved and inspired, Future Professionals took time after the morning meeting to let Rica know that her words motivated them further to take extra time and care on Thursday, and hopefully, for the rest of their career.
After, Rica jumped back into the swing of things, providing complimentary makeup, hair and nail services to cancer warriors. In between, Rica had a returning customer, this time bringing her lovely daughter, for a haircut. At the end of the appointment, her customer handed Rica a box - a wig. She had purchased the wig for her own use, but decided she wouldn't use it, but she remembered Rica's own fight with cancer, and that she provided support to others in the fight. One lucky recipient will get a beautiful, human hair wig, that will be custom fitted for them, thanks to Rica's generous client.
Supporting the cancer community doesn't end today. It continues. Through Rica's program, Beauty Through Cancer, she hopes to train dozens, if not hundreds, salon professionals to be able to give care and support to clients and fighters across the country. If you know of anyone who might be interested in training, please let us know. Fight on and LIVESTRONG.
