Things you don't think about...

When we decided to adopt and become foster parents, we knew that we could get children with different ethnicities than us, and that could bring new challenges we've never had to deal with before. We quickly learned when we adopted our first son that hair and skin care for African Americans is very different. My son struggled with eczema horribly for years to the point where his face and scalp were cracking, bleeding and pussing. We saw countless dermatologists, allergists etc. We tried so many wholistic products, natural products, oils, bleech water baths (doctor prescribed; I know it sounds awful), creams, washes, balms. You name it, we probably tried it, but nothing seemed to work for more than a few weeks.

Thankfully at almost 5 years old he has mostly outgrown his eczema, but the dry scalp remains. Someone suggested using hair product with tea tree oil because they have a bacteria fighting property. I know tea tree oil is used in combatting acne, and I've had success with this myself, so why not try it on his scalp? Around the same timethat this was suggested to us a company reached out to me asking if I'd like to try their tea tree shampoo. Coincidence? I think not!

I've been using this on B for the past few weeks and we've been able to let his hair grow a bit because his scalp isn't as dry under his hair. We formerly had to buzz it every few weeks to keep the dry skin at bay. We've also added coconut oil to his daily hair care regimen, and those two together seem to be working splendidly. He keeps saying he wants to grow his hair and get braids like his sister. :)
