I don’t want to be dramatic but something dramatic happened to me and I am going to talk about it. It all started the last week, I was out of my favorite tea tree oil shampoo and went out to get some more. It’s a natural tea tree oil shampoo so I go to this specialty natural store to get it. It’s a bit of a walk, but it’s really worth it because it makes my hair better than any other shampoo I have ever used.
I bought it because I was struggling with a dry, itchy, and flaky scalp. Thankfully I found out I only had dandruff because I went to the dermatologist to make sure it wasn’t psoriasis, eczema, or seborrheic dermatitis. It’s pretty interesting that all of these skin conditions present similarly but have very different causes and sources. For example, psoriasis is actually not a skin condition at all, it is an autoimmune condition that causes skin cells to replace themselves every few days instead of every 30 days. This causes a thick buildup of skin that presents with white/silvery scales.
Anyways, the point is that I didn’t have that, I had garden variety dandruff. First I tried some of the more commercially available go to dandruff shampoos, and while they might have helped a little bit, I just didn’t like them, perhaps it was a large number of unnatural chemicals they managed to pack into the formula. So I decided I wanted to try a totally natural shampoo and I found the current tea tree oil shampoo I am using. Tea tree oil is so good for your scalp. It is antibacterial and antifungal so it keeps the skin healthy, but it also adds amazing volume to my hair, and I even think I see some new hair sprouting.
Anyways this piece isn’t about my shampoo or is it…Ok ok, I’ll get back to the story. So I was walking to pick up my shampoo and someone I knew came running towards me looking in great distress. I didn’t know what to do so I took her to a bench and asked her to tell me what happened to her.
She told me she went to a party the night before and ended up on the side of the road without her shoes. This person is usually the most together person I know, and to see her like that because she clearly took some drugs really had an impact on me. I never wanted to do drugs before but now I have really seen first hand what it can do to a person. I found a great Tea tree oil shampoo at maple holistics.
I know I know you probably expected something way more dramatic and exciting than that, but this is my story and I was extremely struck by this experience. It’s crazy to see someone you look up to and admire make such a bad life decision. It really is the little things that make the biggest impact, I mean it is also the big things that make the biggest impact, but people really underestimate the little things and that really should not be the case.
