Benefits of Peppermint Oil for Hair
Can lead to hair growth: Findings published in Toxicological Research say a peppermint oil solution led to more hair growth than minoxidil, a hair-growth product approved by the FDA.1
Though, there isn't a ton of conclusive research that proves using peppermint oil will definitely cause an increase in growth.
- Increase hair thickness: "Peppermint essential oil stimulates blood circulation to the skin, which may help with increasing dermal thickness, follicle number, and follicle depth."

In fact, a study in Microvascular Research found a 4% menthol solution "caused blood vessels to widen, which increases blood flow."
