Peppermint Oil For Hair Growth
Peppermint oil is a great smelling and great feeling essential oil. The tingling sensation and cooling effect that it has on our scalp can’t be beat by any other essential oil (in my opinion). I love the minty smell. It is soothing and calming but be careful not to use too much. It’s a powerful essential oil.
The tingling sensation promotes blood circulation to our scalp and it stimulates the hair follicles. This is necessary for the regrowth and promotion of healthy, strong hair. When I was growing my hair back from alopecia and damage, peppermint oil was an essential part of my hair regrowth regimen which I added to my Stimulating shampoo.
Peppermint oil also has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which is needed to sooth dry and itchy scalps caused by dandruff and other scalp/skin related conditions. It is also very effective at keeping lice away.
Peppermint oil also helps to absorb excess oils on the scalp and it is a great aid (along with the other oils) to keep hair follicles clean and clear. It is very effective at moisturizing a dry scalp and promoting over hair health and growth. Use it sparingly because a little goes a long way.
