In taking care of the he alth and beauty of the hair, we like to use different oils that we know would improve its condition. Castor oil is one of them and is often mentioned as one of the best oils for hair loss as well as for repairing dry and damaged hair.
It can be combined with other base oils, and its application helps stimulate hair growth thanks to its rich fatty acid and vitamin E content.
Castor oil stimulates blood flow to the scalp and strengthens hair roots. The oil has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties that have been shown to help reduce scalp inflammation, infections and reduce hair loss.
As mentioned, it is rich in fatty acids and in particular omega-6 fatty acids. Western studies show that omega-6 helps promote he althy hair growth and improve her condition.
See three ideas how you can use the oil for beautiful hair
For damaged hair and hair loss
Combine castor oil with coconut, almond or jojoba oil, the amount of castor oil can be equal to the other oil. With light massaging movements, apply the oils to the roots of the hair. It will be easier to apply this treatment if you previously moisturize the hair at the roots (and along the length, if you will apply there as well).
If the ends are dry and damaged, you can apply it too, even apply it along the entire length of the hair. Leave the oils on for 20 minutes, then wash your hair with a suitable shampoo. If well tolerated, do this mask 1-2 times a week.
Castor oil for hair growth
In a suitable container, combine 2 tablespoons of sesame oil, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of sweet almond oil, one tablespoon of castor oil. Apply the mask to the roots with light massaging movements and let it work for about 40-60 minutes. It's nice if you can wrap your hair in a shower cap. After the mask has worked, wash your hair as usual. If your hair tolerates this care well, do it 1-2 times a week.
