Review & GIveaway! Fight Flaky Scalp with Parnevu T- Tree (Shampoo, Conditioner, Spray Glosser)-CLOSED



In my previous posts, I have talked about my penchant for tea tree products. I use tea tree to lighten blemishessoothe my scalp, scrub my feet, even to relieve insect bites. 

I had the chance to try some tea tree hair products from Parnevu. The timing couldn't be more perfect. While I swear by organix macadamia styling oil's amazing results on my hair, the shampoo and conditioner combo didn't address my flaky hairline. Nope, it's not dandruff, it's not even itchy. Partly, I attribute these snowflakes to frequent hot showers.  Can Parnevu T-Tree solve the situation?

More description of my hair below...

Hair vital stats. Waist-length, naturally wavy, dry, tangled, sometimes with flaky hairline, most of the time in messy bun, wash every other day, dry shampoo when I feel like it, hair color or root touch ups every 3 months, 1-2 inch trimming every 3 months, hot oil only when I remember. In a nutshell, my mane's pretty much low maintenance.

Hair routine using Parnevu T-Tree. I wash my hair and massage the roots and tips with shampoo, rinse, condition, leave for 5 minutes, rinse again. Towel up, spray glosser, brush hair, air-dry. Again, nothing smancshy fancy.

The verdict. My nit-picky nose is not a fan of the shampoo's fragrance. It's not awful but the scent needs to amp up so it correlates to the proverbial fresh & clean feeling. However, I am more than glad that this shampoo addressed my snowy dilemma. Hairline flakes are gone momma!

I enjoy the minty feel of the conditioner while I massage my scalp and hair ! I have also used this as leave-in but it weighed my hair down so I prefer the traditional way (after shampoo then rinse).

My favorite among the three is the spray glosser. I like to spray my hair with it in the morning or in-between washings. It makes my hair soft and manageable. I didn't notice significant shine but it definitely made detangling a lot easier. 

Overall, if you are looking for an affordable tea tree brand to address flaky scalp, keep Parnevu in mind. I can't evaluate  its promise of hair strength because I have no issues with breakage. Unless I tie my hair to a Fedex truck and pull it with teeth clenched, then it's a whole different story! Now you're laughing.

  1. Interesting review! I'm glad someone else has a picky nose. Not enough beauty bloggers address smells.

    I might check that product out if they have a smaller size to try. If I wash my hair too often it gets dried out but if I don't wash it enough it gets too oily and my scalp is itchy. But I am a low maintenance hair girl like you, so maybe tea tree oil is an ingredient I should start looking for.

    1. Thanks much for stopping by. Fragrance is a personal thing, but most often than not, if a certain smell doesn't appeal to me, most likely it isn't. I get what you mean w/ your hair concern. Yeah tea tree might address that, let me know how it works. Have a lovely weekend.xo

  9. I entered the giveaway! I'm so glad you're not asking to do a blog post for entries, i feel so bad that i will make a blog post for a giveaway and but I won't make a regular post... lol. you don't need to know if your readers blog or not right?! haha. & to answer the giveaway question: i love that my hair is relatively healthy. it's flat though so ive been contemplating giving it more heat and damage in exchange for less boring =| not a good tradeoff but at least you can try to mitigate damage!

  15. Nice review! Thanks for sharing. :)

    What I love my hair? Hmmm.. I love it because it's long now. :) So I am wondering if I would curl it or keep it straight. I would have to go for a rebond if I would keep it straight. And one thing I love about it is its natural color. It looks like chestnut brown. Many mistakenly thinks that I get a hair dye even if I didn't. :)

  16. Hmm...it's actually a bit a love/hate thing. I know I'm lucky that my hair grows so fast and so well. It's thick and generally very healthy. But it drives me nuts because I don't like to get it cut very often, so growing fast isn't always a plus! I do like how thick it is, though.

    Thanks!
