Here’s How to increase Hair growth using peppermint essential oil
Take any one carrier Oil of your choice. I like to use the following oils for my hair. I sometimes use any one oil or mix a couple of oils for a more deep conditioning effect.
After you have chosen your favorite carrier oil of your choice, Take a small bowl and add 2 tablespoons of that oil in it. Warm the oil using the double boiling method, i.e., Fill the mug half way with hot water and now take that small bowl which has oil and dip half way into the water for 5 minutes to warm the oil a little.
I prefer warming the oil in this way rather than warming it in the Microwave. Because, the later will over heat the oil and that evaporates the essential fatty acids in it.
After warming the oil a bit, add 3 drops of peppermint essential oil in it and mix it well.
Section your hair and apply the oil only to your SCALP. Massage for 5 minutes and comb your hair using a wooden bristle brush to distribute the oil and encourage blood circulation to your entire scalp.
After 6 hours or overnight, wash your hair with a Mild Shampoo and condition it as usual.
Repeat this once every week to visible results.
Do not over use the essential oils. They are not like your normal hair oils. Essential oils are very potent and even a single drop more than the recommended dilution may cause irritation.
Never use essential oils without diluting them.
