Are you looking to protect your hair from hair fall and add volume to it? If yes, then look no further as what you need is hair oil made from natural ingredients that can help you fight common problems like hair fall, dandruff, and dullness.
A hair oil made at home will ensure that you target the problem areas by using the ingredients that are suited to your needs. So, if you want to promote healthy hair growth and reduce dandruff, then a hair oil made of peppermint and rosemary can come to your rescue.
Peppermint helps to provide a cooling effect that increases scalp and hair circulation, thereby promoting hair growth and the number of hair follicles. The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties ensure that hair is free of dandruff and reduces hair fall.
Rosemary promotes hair growth as it contains ursolic acid, which increases scalp circulation, ensuring that oxygen and nutrients reach the hair follicles. Greying and falling of hair is also reduced by use of rosemary, due to its high antioxidant content that wards off free radicals. Rosemary also contains antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties which help fight dandruff and scalp irritation.
