Will Tea Tree Oil fade my hair color?

Hello! I posted this about a week or so ago on the hair coloring forum but I got no responses . I'm hoping to get some here!

I usually use tea tree oil in my co-wash (about 15 drops in a cup or cup and a half of conditioner) because I have dry, itchy scalp but I've been wanting to color my hair for awhile but I haven't because I remember reading somewhere that tea tree oil can fade color. So, I was wondering if it really does? Have any of you had this experience before? I hope one of you can help me so I can finally dye my hair!

I also use extra virgin olive oil.....will that make color fade too? I remember also reading that all (or most?) oils will cause the color to fade.

Thanks in advance!

I read that you can use tea tree oil and baking soda to strip the oil from your hair, but it won't cause it to fade. HTH

When I brought my Giovani TTT shampoo with to my stylist, he did mention tea tree oil causes color fade and suggested limiting it's use to only once in a while.

What you both have told me is what I keep hearing.... >_< either it does fade color or it doesn't. I don't know what to believe! Arg! Hahahaha....I think I might just limit the use of it and just see how it reacts when I first apply it....

Thanks a lot of your input! Much appreciated!




Oh....I already dyed my hair! hehehe
