When it comes to hair, one of the most effective ingredients which are frequently used in cosmetics is castor oil. It’s considered to be a natural remedy for hair issues like: scalp infections, dandruff, but also skin problems like: spots, acne and rash. When it is applied on the scalp, it starts increasing the blood circulation to the hair follicles, thus ensuring better hair growth. If you properly nourish your hair, then the thread will be stronger, elastic and more durable. Your hair will grow fast without breaking.
If those scalp issues contribute to hair loss, castor oil can keep such issues under control. The cause for this condition is bacteria or fungal infection. There are ricinoleic acids in this oil and they decrease infections and eliminate the positive environment for their development. Your hair becomes smoother, shinier and stronger due to vitamin E, proteins and omega-6 fatty acids which this oil contains. The oil will also treat split ends and is an amazing lubricant preventing the hair to tangle.
Castor Oil Hair Mask
It will also help you solve the issues with dandruff, clean your scalp from dirt and bacteria which clog the pores and cause dandruff and hair loss.
Separate your hair into 2 equal parts. Heat the castor oil and then apply it on your scalp and roots. Make circular movements with your fingers to spread the oil better on your scalp.
After applying it, tie your hair into a bun and cover it with a shower cap. Let the oil stay for half an hour, one hour or overnight.
In the end, shampoo your hair well to remove the whole oil.
Use the mask every week for a period of one month until you’re able to see the first results. If in case castor oil has an unpleasant smell for you, then mix it with grape seed oil or olive oil.
