Nourished hair looks tamed and cared for. A mound of soft curls, or the luminosity of silky-straight mane - hair that reflects health, is generously loved, yet equally envied by all. However, the recent past enunciates that, with pollution, and stress playing spoil sport, people - unfortunately - are deprived of the so-called dream mane. Nevertheless, a majority are ready to peddle a tad harder to achieve, and maintain a rich-looking coiffure.

Peppermint oil is a useful hair care product. Exercise prudence when using peppermint oil; it must not be applied directly onto the hair. A diluted form of the oil is recommended for the purpose of application. You may mix 2 drops of oil with 4 oz of water to apply onto the hair. You may also choose to mix either avocado or olive oil with peppermint oil. Remember: Your hair may endure damage if this oil is used in concentrated form. You can pour a few drops of this oil in your shampoo bottle as well. Two to three drops of virgin peppermint oil could be diluted with your shampoo or conditioner. Use these beauty products for your hair as you normally do. However, if your scalp feels irritated after using the shampoo, or conditioner, containing the peppermint oil; you could add a few drops of water to reduce its intensity.
