You should not ignore the benefits of castor oil and overlook its benefits for hair and skin because it is an oil with sticky and thick consistency.
Why Castor oil is great for regrowing and thickening hair, eyelashes and eyebrows?
It is because the oil is derived from the bean of the Castor plant and is high in ricinoleic acid and omega-9 fatty acids, which have many therapeutic effects.
Ricinoleic acid can help keep any fungus or bacteria from inhibiting hair growth because it is a very effective natural antibacterial and antifungal agent. Since the oil is also very thick, it may help to prevent hair loss simply by helping to coat the hair and protect it from falling out.
Omega 9 fatty acids are nourishing both the hair and the follicle, as well as the surrounding skin.
Castor oil has a unique ability to be deeply penetrating, and this helps it to deliver its nourishment deeply into the pores and the follicles that produce hair.
Also, it has a high gloss, so it lends a lush glossiness and shine to the hair. A little goes a long way, and it is best to only add a tiny bit to the very ends of your hair instead of putting it up near the scalp if you’re just looking for a natural hair smoother.
Helping with hair re-growth
Put about two drops of castor oil on your hands and rub, then smooth through the ends.
Be careful because there is a fine line between subtle shine and a heavy greasiness so go very light until you figure out the amount that works right for your hair type.
Use castor oil as a scalp treatment to regrow the hair on your head. Thine it out with a lighter oil for exaple melted coconut oil, apricot kernel oil or another lighter oil to help get it spreadable enough.
And use pure castor oil, with a light hand of course if you’re simply looking to help thicken hair that is thinning at the edges of your hairline.
One more use of castor oil is to thicken and strengthen the eyelashes, as well as to help prevent theirs thinning and shedding.
