Hair growth
Mix tea tree oil with any carrier oil of your choice, like coconut oil, almond oil or sesame seed oil and massage it on your head. For a hot oil treatment, heat the oil before massaging it on your scalp. Let the oil sit for a minimum of one hour and then wash off. 

Getting rid of lice
Lice usually appear when the scalp is in bad health. They are extremely harmful and suck the blood from the scalp causing itchiness. Tea tree oil can help get rid of them and even eradicate their eggs once and for all. 
Mix 7-8 drops of the oil with a spoon of vegetable oil and leave it on overnight. In the morning, comb the hair with a fine tooth comb to get rid of the lice and then wash off.
