How To Use Peppermint Oil To Help With Dandruff
Peppermint has remarkable calming effects, thanks to its refreshing, sweet aroma that can help you forget your worries. Peppermint is either used topically as an oil or taken in the form of tea leaves or supplements.
Since peppermint oil has anti-microbial properties and a cooling effect, you may massage your scalp with it to relieve itchiness and get rid of dandruff. Just a few drops of peppermint oil — mixed with a carrier oil, such as coconut or castor — will do the trick, but make sure you wash it off thoroughly with water and cleanse the hair completely afterwards.
MedicalNewsToday also recommends using peppermint shampoos for their added relaxation and cooling benefits, and you can add a few drops of peppermint oil to regular shampoo to reap the same benefits. Excess peppermint oil exposure may result in acidity or nausea, and those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking certain medications should consult a doctor first, as it may cause allergic reactions.
