Hair adds glam to your looks, and if they are brittle and unhealthy it breaks our heart.
Today! I am going to discuss the major problem that I am facing these days which is hair loss. I know some of you might be facing it too. I have tried number of home remedies but nothing worked on my hair and recently I heard about castor oil. I tried using it, and I was amazed to see my hair became quite strong, shiny and healthy.
So, what is castor oil it is nothing but the oil which is obtained from seeds or beans of castor plant ( Rincus communis )well bit of botanical information there.
It consists of Vitamin E, omega -6 fatty acid, minerals, and proteins .Well, there is a lot of stuff in it, and these ingredients make it a perfect product for your hair. Not only this, I was surprised, and I bet you will too when I will tell you that it is just not meant for hair but it softens and hydrates skin.It produces elastin and collagen and this delays the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.It also helps you to get rid of dark spots and stretch marks. I wonder how one product can have so many benefits?
Well, I want to share with you guys if you are planning to use castor oil then you need to know the right way to apply it otherwise you will end up messing everything.
How to Apply:
1.Mix castor oil with coconut oil, olive as it has a thick consistency. Mix it in half and half ratio.
2.Apply the mixture with your fingers or brush evenly in your hair and onto your scalp in circular motion.This gentle massage increases blood circulation which results in hair growth.
3. Now part your hair and apply the oil in each section.
4. After this wrap your hair with a warm towel and this helps the oil to penetrate. Leave it for 8 hours or overnight. In the morning when you wash you will notice hydrated scalp.
5. You can wash your hair usually, as you do with shampoo and conditioner.
How Often Should you Use Castor Oil?
For visible results use it twice a week, and for even better results you can do it three or four times for several weeks. For best results try using unrefined castor oil. If you just want bring back shine to your dull hair you can use it as a conditioner in a little amount once a week.
So, try it once, and you can thank me later. Do share your experience.
