The right way to use castor oil on hair

The consistency of castor oil is thicker than other regular hair oils such as almond hair oil, olive oil and coconut oil. The best way to apply castor oil on hair is to mix it with other light consistency hair oils and massage it on your scalp.

Here are some ways I usually use castor oil to grow my hair:

  Castor oil and coconut oil for hair growth

What You Need

  • 1-2 tsp castor oil
  • 1-2 tsp Coconut oil

What You Need To Do

  • You can mix equal proportions of the two oils in a small cup.
  • And then, heat the oil on a medium flame for 5 seconds (don’t overheat it)  and apply it to your hair.
  • Massage your scalp gently for 10-15 minutes.

Leave it on for an hour, and then wash it off with lukewarm water and shampoo as usual.

I prefer mixing coconut oil with castor oil and apply on my hair, because I love the way it makes my hair feels after wash, so soft and shiny. Coconut oil is a good choice when it comes to hair. Apart from adding luster, shine and softness to the hair coconut oil also prevents hair breakage and split ends, contributing to hair length.

Olive oil and Castor oil for faster hair growth 

Take equal amount of both the oil, massage it to your scalp and tips (mainly concentrating on scalp area) and leave it overnight. Wash it in the morning with a mild shampoo. I like to warm the oil a bit before applying, if you don’t have time or space to warm the oil, simply rub the oil in your palm, massage on your scalp and then gently spread the oil into the hair strands.

I hope you find this post useful. I have been using castor oil for my hair for past 10 years on and off. I usually remember of castor oil every time I cut my hair short or have a hair disaster. It has always helped me in repairing my damaged hair and also in promoting hair growth.
