Are you happy with your hair or you spend hours in front of the mirror to fix it? Taking care of your hair is essential if you want it to look great. If you’re thinking “I take good care of my hair, and it still doesn’t look beautiful”, let us clarify something – using commercial hair care products every day doesn’t guarantee wonderful shiny hair. Commercial hair care products often contain chemicals that can ruin the health of your hair and may be the reason why your hair doesn’t look good even with all the work you’ve been putting in. Luckily, there’s one natural ingredient that can help – castor oil.
Castor oil is rich in numerous essential nutrients as well as omega-9 fatty acids which are vital for proper hair health and growth. It also contains ricinoleic acid, a powerful antibacterial and antifungal agent that can prevent numerous hair problems and infections and accelerate the growth of your hair, eyelashes and eyebrows. Additionally, castor oil can stimulate production of collagen and elastin, effectively treating scars.
And, the health benefits of the oil don’t stop there – it can keep your skin hydrated and shiny as well as free of wrinkles. To get the most out of it, we suggest mixing castor oil with some almond or coconut oil which will dilute it and make it easier for you. Here’s how to prepare an oily mixture that will boost your hair growth and maintain its health:
- 5 tablespoons of castor oil
- 5 tablespoons of almond or coconut oil
Preparation and use
Mix the oils well until you get a homogenous mixture and that’s it! Apply the mixture on your scalp and on your hair, eyelashes and eyebrows before going to bed in the evening.
Put a shower cap on your hair and leave the oil to work overnight, then rinse with warm water in the morning. Repeat the process every day and you will be amazed by the results soon!
