Hair loss can be a natural part of the ageing process, and most of the time, it’s nothing to worry about. We can even lose up to 100 hairs on our bodies every day, without even noticing. But you could prolong the life of your locks by regularly using peppermint oil for your scalp, it’s been revealed.
Peppermint oil contains menthol, which gives peppermint its taste and smell.
Menthol is also responsible for the oil’s many health benefits.
It has a number of skin benefits, but it’s also good for your hair and scalp, according to medical website Healthline.
The menthol in peppermint oil helps to improve blood flow.

“Add a couple drops of oil to about one tablespoon of your favourite scalp massage oil.
“If you don’t have scalp massage oil, you can use a simple household oil like coconut, jojoba, or shea butter oil.”
Massage the oil into your scalp, and then leave the treatment for between 15 and 20 minutes.
Alternatively, you can simply add peppermint oil straight into your shampoo and conditioner bottles.
Around five drops of peppermint oil per every 30g of shampoo is plenty.
