Let’s talk about the amazing castor oil, which is also very widely known as an effective oil for hair growth.
Castor oil has wonderful beauty benefits when used in right amount on hair and skin. I have been using Castor oil on my hair for quite some time and even recommending to my friends and cousins to add this wonderful oil in their daily beauty regime.
Castor oil is known for its rich omega-6 essential fatty acids and ricinoleic. These essential nutrients play a significant role in increasing hair growth and improving the hair quality. In this post, I am going to share with you some of the ways I use castor oil for hair growth.
But, before I start giving tips on how to use castor oil for hair growth, let me list some of the benefits of castor oil. 🙂
- Castor oil controls hair fall
- It promotes hair growth
- Treats dandruff
- Castor oil reduces split ends
- Thickens hair
- Protects hair from damage
I began using Castor oil for hair growth last year. After repeatedly coloring my hair I was facing huge hair problems like; hair breakage, unruly hair , dry hair, split ends and excessive hair fall.
After doing my bit of research on finding some natural ways to get some life on my dead hair, with no second thought, I went straight online and bought myself a bottle of castor oil from Amazon.
How did I start using castor oil for my dry and damaged hair-
I tried a concoction of castor oil, coconut oil and vitamin E capsules for a month and could feel my hair reacted to it much positively. I could feel my hair turning softer, thicker and longer! Ever since Castor oil has become my favorite oil. You can mix it with other essential oil according to your preference.
What You Need
- 1-2 tsp castor oil
- 1-2 tsp olive oil
What You Need To Do
- You can mix equal proportions of the two oils in a small cup.
- And then, warm 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.
For maximum result, I suggest you to leave the oil on hair overnight.
In Summer you can use Castor oil with coconut oil for healthy 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. The reason I suggest you use coconut oil in summer (apart from its really amazing hair benefits) is because it’s pretty difficult to get rid of coconut oil from hair during the winter. It sort of hardens and sticks to hair strands, but during summer it’s pretty easy to wash it off.
Tips- Use organic coconut oil for better results or you can also use cold pressed virgin coconut oil.
