Tea tree oil is widely used in Australia, so I have used it (in products and in it's pure form) many times before. It is an anti-bacterial so I can believe that it will help prevent/reduce flaking and itching as both of these products claim. I don't usually have much of either, but I can say it didn't irritate my scalp at all.
I shampooed my hair, but didn't condition. I towel-dried and then worked the Leave-In Conditioner through the mid-lengths and ends. I combed it through and then applied the Spray Glosser to my still damp hair and worked it through to the ends using my fingers.
From the Parnevu Website:

Great to use on dry, damaged hair, leaving it smooth and shiny. Use for extra control around the edges, quickly controlling frizz and flyaways.
This unique glosser:

INGREDIENTS: Isododecane, Isopropyl Myristate NF, Dimethicone, Liquid Shea Butter, Fragrance, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Ethyl Ester of Hydrolyzed Silk.
My thoughts: Smells like cherry, smoothed and softened without getting greasy. Diffused my frizz a bit and defined my curls, but didn't give a lot of 'gloss', although my hair is quite light and doesn't usually show much shine. Can be a bit heavy for fine hair if you use too much.

INGREDIENTS: Water (Aqua, Eau), Mineral oil (Paraffinum liquidum, Huile minerale), Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Stearalkonium Chloride, Cyclopentasiloxane, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Menthol, Camphor, Fragrance (parfum), Citric acid, Phenoxyethanol, DMDM Hydatoin.
My thoughts: smells fruity like pineapple and coconut at first, but once you rub it together in your hands, you can smell the tea tree oil. Quite creamy, but seemed to absorb into hair quickly and didn't really help much with detangling which you would usually expect from a leave in conditioner. I used quite a bit, about two quarter sized dollops (that's like a 50c piece in Australia).
I quite liked using the products, they smoothed and softened my hair pretty well and I think they would be great for people who get a flaky or itchy scalp. It would also probably work perfectly for coarser or thicker hair than mine. My hair is REALLY fine and weighed down easily. Is it my new HG product? Probably not. But it's a decent range of products that are inexpensive and work pretty well.
