4-5 times per day: Tea: steep 1 tsp. Dried peppermint leaves in 1 cup boiling water for 10 minutes; strain and cool. Drink 4 - 5 times per day between meals. Peppermint tea appears to be safe, even in large quantities.

Depends on what you mean by bloated: "loading" peppermint tea relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter, or the valve at the top of the stomach, and therefore allows you to belch more easily.

For certain problems: Peppermint has many benefits: it reduces gas, bloating & nausea & helps abdominal & menstrual cramps. Enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules are proven effective for relieving spasms in irritable bowel syndrome. However, peppermint can aggravate reflux/heartburn so may not be appropriate if you have that (though enteric coating may prevent that effect). See www.Herbwisdom.Com/herb-peppermint.Html.

Change in products?: Did you change shampoos, conditioners or other hair care products? Have you recently permed or put extensions in your hair? These are all questions to raise with your doctor. Your doctor can also check your hair and scalp for any other problems.
