Stunted hair growth and hair fall is a common issue these days thanks to factors like stress, lack of hair care, changing weather and water, using excessive heat treatments, using a lot of different hair products, changes in diet etc. You can reverse your hair fall issues and stimulate hair growth with a simple home remedy- peppermint tea infused oil! Yes, you heard that right. You can infuse almost anything in oils including your beloved teas.
Peppermint tea infused oil makes a great remedy for hair growth and guess what? Since the oil isn’t as saturated and concentrated as the essential oils, you can directly use it. Below is how you could make peppermint tea infused oil using just 2 ingredients:
Peppermint oil helps to stimulate blood flow to the root of the hair by stimulating blood circulation, which in turn leads to hair growth.
Peppermint oil has a weird minty sensation that irritates the scalp and this positively stimulates hair follicles leading to hair growth.
Coconut oil is a well-known hair conditioner and gradually makes hair thicker and longer.
