Benefits of Peppermint Oil for Natural Hair | Mielle

We are approaching dry scalp season! With fall upon us, a common symptom of the dryer weather for naturals is a dry and itchy scalp.

Peppermint oil is amazing because it is very soothing. Peppermint oil is a derivative of the peppermint plant, which is a cross between water mint and spearmint. Peppermint oil has many great benefits for the hair, and it has been used for years as a hair treatment to help with dry scalp, hair loss, hair growth, and much more.

Mielle’s Mint Almond Oil contains peppermint and is amazing for treating dry scalp and hair. Our natural, lightweight Mint Almond Oil helps reduce breakage, excessive shedding, and dry scalp. Peppermint is very strong, so it should be mixed with a carrier oil when applied to the hair. We used almond oil because it is a carrier protein that binds to each strand to seal and lock in moisture. As a customer favorite, we know your hair and scalp will love the sweet, refreshing results of almond oil and peppermint!

Benefits of Peppermint Oil for Natural Hair

Helps Normalize Scalp Oil Production

Peppermint oil can be used as an astringent to help reduce the production of excessive oils, and it helps to balance your scalp’s pH level.

Combats Dry Scalp and Dandruff

Peppermint oil helps to restore normal scalp conditions. When it is applied to the scalp, this oil will help hydrate a dry scalp and also help to eliminate dandruff resulting from dryness.

Promotes Hair Growth

Peppermint oil also helps to stimulate the hair follicle by increasing the blood circulation and oxygen supply to your scalp. Apply the Mint Almond Oil to your scalp and massage to help stimulate your hair follicles. A large supply of oxygen will help your hair grow at its full potential, which is why scalp massages are important for hair growth. You can also use a scalp massager to ease the process.
