Hoff Thoughts: I like to use this hair treatment once a week.  I apply it in the morning, put my hair up in a top knot and go about my day - mind you on a day that I'm not leaving the house.  The Tea Tree Oil makes this a nice treatment for those with dandruff.  If that's not a concern for you (lucky duck), leave out or replace with your fav essential oil.
