Discover the benefits of peppermint oil for hair.

Why does hair fall out if we don’t have alopecia? First of all, it is normal to lose hair, especially if we are in a change.

The probable cause is “acute telogen effluvium”, an alteration of the life cycle of the hair, specifically, in the growth phase. But when you lose more than 100 hairs in a day, it becomes necessary to think about treatment and peppermint oil has become the best option.

Why use peppermint oil on hair?

A study from the Neurological Clinic of Christian Albrechts University found that the menthol in peppermint oil increases blood flow and provides a cooling sensation. The above can help with dryness, itchiness, and other scalp problems.

However, peppermint oil has more benefits:

•antimicrobial

•Insecticide and pesticide

•Analgesic and anesthetic

Direct scalp massage

Apply a tablespoon of peppermint oil directly to the root of the hair. Extend it through a massage with circular movements.

You may experience a tingling sensation, but quiet is normal from the mint. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash with cold water and the shampoo of your choice.

*** If the stinging sensation continues, add another oil (coconut, jojoba, or almond) to neutralize the effect.  Benefits of peppermint oil for hair

In the shampoo bottle

Add five to seven drops of peppermint oil to your shampoo or conditioner. Use them as you always do.

Precautions: Avoid contact with eyes because it can irritate. If possible, try to dilute it in water.

How to make peppermint oil?

Ingredients

•350 grams of fresh mint

•200 milligrams of base oil (almond or olive)

Preparation

Wash the peppermint well (it is not the same as peppermint). Crush the leaves with a wooden mallet or a spoon, do it until it releases its juice and you can perceive its smell.

In a saucepan place the oil and put it on the stove over low heat. Add the crushed mint and stir. Leave in the heat for half an hour, covered.

After that time, remove from heat, let cool, and strain before pouring into a clean bottle. You will need to let it sit for 10 days before you can use it.
