Castor oil is an incredibly beneficial oil which can be used to promote your overall health and beauty as well. This essential oil is usually used in the cosmetic industry for a variety of skin and hair care products which are super-effective in resolving the most common cosmetic issues.
Castor oil is a potent antifungal and antibacterial agent and is abundant in a number of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin E, Omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids and proteins. The oil has a positive effect on your skin and hair and can be used topically for hair loss, acne, enlarged pores, rashes and many other cosmetic problems. The oil is abundant in ricinoleic acid, which is responsible for its health benefits.
If you use it to promote hair quality, you’ll successfully prevent hair loss and resolve any bacterial infections, dandruff and folliculitis. The abundance of ricinoleic acid boosts blood circulation to the scalp and promotes accelerated hair growth. This acid also helps in balancing your scalp’s pH levels, oil amount and eliminates the unwanted side-effects from the chemically-laden shampoos, conditioners and other hair care products we use. The best thing about castor oil is that it’s readily available and cheap, which means anyone can afford it and take advantage of its benefits. Try it out and see the amazing results for yourself. Have in mind that the oil is really thick, so if you apply it directly on your scalp make sure you dilute it in some water before using it.
You can also combine it with some coconut essential oil and use this mixture to regenerate split ends, dries and dull hair. Apply it on your hair, massage it in the scalp and leave it on for an hour. Perform this procedure twice a week for best results, and wash your hair afterwards.
If you have problems with dry, fizzy hair rub a few drops of castor oil between the palms and apply it on yout entire hair length. Best to do this before you go to sleep.
