We aren’t just talking about hair extensions either! Have you ever heard of using castor oil for hair growth…?
These days, we destroy our hair and you can’t really argue against that. Think of the last time you dyed your hair, either at home or in a salon. What about the last time you used hair straighteners on your hair? When did you last dry your hair using a dryer? We’d love to bet that, on occasion, you have been known to back-comb your hair to within an inch of its life to get that style you’ve been trying to copy from the latest celeb mag! If you are doing all of these things, you are drying your hair out and damaging it; it’s as simple as that. It is time to put some much-needed nutrition back into your hair to encourage it to grow again.
Not just hair
It’s not just your hair that this magical sounding oil can provide welcome relief to. Castor oil is something that has been studied in great depth; it has been shown to have a whole host of other beauty-boosting properties too. It can help to fade scars, works perfectly as a skin moisturizer, helps fight back against acne and much more! In addition, it can also help you repair and grow your eyelashes and eyebrows.
[wp_ad_camp_1]How it works
There is one major component of castor oil which has been said to promote healthy and fast hair growth — ricinoleic acid. This helps to fight off infections of the hair follicles because it acts as an anti-fungal treatment for your hair. It also contains anti-bacterial properties so if there is anything nasty stopping your hair from growing or being rejuvenated, castor oil can help put a stop to it.
In short, this means that you can use castor oil if you are suffering with hair loss as well as slow-growing hair.
Another bonus is that this amazing oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which helps promote good circulation to the hair follicles and when you have good circulation, your hair is getting all the nutrients it needs in order to grow long and healthy. You’ll be helping you hair to fight back against split ends as well as hair loss, dry hair, brittle hair and more! Not only you get faster hair growth, you also get healthier more beautiful hair!
How to use it
So now you that know what castor oil for can help you achieve, it is time to learn how to actually use it. You probably should be aware that things can get a little messy, and it will take time and dedication on your part to ensure you rinse it out properly, but with careful planning, you’ll be a pro in no time. It is as simple as washing your hair and shampooing (twice if necessary) then giving it a good rub down with castor oil and leaving it, wrapped up in a towel, for around an hour or so. The longer you can give it, the more the nutrients will work their magic so it might be worth leaving it overnight if you can. Once you’ve had enough of having it on your head, rinse it out THOROUGHLY and repeat once a week or whenever you find the time.
