At some point in life, many men and women may go through hair loss. Did you know that peppermint oil is proven to be efficient for hair growth? Peppermint (Mentha × piperita) is an aromatic herb in the mint family that is a cross between watermint and spearmint. Native to Europe and Asia, it has been used for thousands of years for its pleasant, minty taste and health benefits.
Peppermint leaves contain several essential oils including menthol, menthone and limonene. Menthol gives peppermint its cooling properties and recognizably minty scent. It produces a refreshing sensation and is commonly used as an aromatic in foods and beverages, and also as a fragrance for soaps and cosmetics.
Be it to stop hair loss, baldness, or to intensify hair growth, peppermint oil may help you. Peppermint oil is the concentrated essential oil of leaves, stems and stalks of the peppermint plant. The main ingredient of peppermint oil, menthol, is mainly responsible for its beneficial effects. Some research found that peppermint oil promoted hair growth more effectively than topical applications of saline, jojoba oil, and minoxidil, which is a medication commonly used to treat hair loss. The researchers also found that peppermint essential oil increased scalp thickness and the number of hair follicles.
Besides that, peppermint oil is one of the best essential oils for migraines and headaches, to alleviate allergies, eliminate warts, and is largely used to soothe pain and inflammation. According to the research, peppermint oil plays a fundamental role at the beginning of the anagen phase and proliferation of hair follicles, both necessary for healthy hair growth. Peppermint oil can cause a cold, tingling feeling when it increases circulation to the area it's applied to. This can help promote hair growth during the anagen (or growing) phase. One study found that peppermint oil, when used on mice, increased the number of follicles, follicle depth, and overall hair growth.
To stimulate growth, mix 2 drops of peppermint oil with a tablespoon of a carrier oil, such as jojoba or coconut oil. After that, apply on the desired area (scalp or face), and let it act for at least 30 minutes (before doing this treatment, do a test to ensure that your skin won't get irritated). Another option to nourish your hair every day, add peppermint essential oil to your shampoo - a mild shampoo or baby shampoo is recommended - or conditioner. For every ounce of shampoo, add 4 to 6 drops of oil, massage into your hair, and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Isn't it amazing how powerful this natural oil is?
