    peppermint oil wow!

    I had no idea that a natural oil could work so well. I apply it to my beard and get the same results as with flutamide when it comes to thinning my beard and slowing hair growth. AMAZING. I hope I won't get systemic effects like I did with flutamide. BUt wow I am impressed.

    yes, but does it reduce hair growth because it is anti-androgenic or because it is an epilatory?, until you know one way or the other I would not risk applying any to the scalp. This is one of the big flaws of testing substances on your beard or body hair.

    a while ago when M. Barry posted his peppermint oil experiment, I started using lots of it.... in a mix with other oils as a leave on topical for a couple hours a day... mixed with shampoos etc... and to my best appreciation it reduced the ammount of hair id see fall per day..... plus I loved the tingling feeling and clean smell of it....

    but..... as soon as the epilatory issues of it came out...I stoped using it... too bad. I would really like some proof its safe for hair.

    yeah, I think this is a similar problem encountered by people who used topical Licorice - it is said to be a relatively potent anti-androgen (at least, the glycyrrhizinic acid component of it), but it was shown in rats to remove a large amount of hair from their necks - it seems to be an epilatory. Only way to know for sure would be to try it on a small patch of head hair, but I don't think anyone in here is going to do that - certainly not me.
    I am trialling it out on my left leg just to see what will happen - thinking of getting some peppermint oil myself, for the beard.

    Re: peppermint oil wow!

    why why oh whyyyyyyyyy there always has to be some doubt. So far it works just like extra strong antiandrogen on my beard but you are correct. It might be epilatory effect. should I rist it? There is no other way to test it but on my head correct? body hair will go the same direction whether it's antiandrogen or epilator so It has to be head hair. Ok who's up for it? C mon guys what's a life without taking risk!

    I agree with the poster that the cooling feeling of oil is great!

    There's probably about 480 peppermint shampoos currently on the market. I'd like to think that if it had an epilitory effect, we'd have heard about it by now.
    You're being ignorant... stop being ignorant.
