How to use castor oil for thicker and longer hair naturally

I’ve been experimenting a lot with Castor Oil lately as a natural beauty remedy. I already use it in my oil cleansing blend each day, and I’m enjoying the results from using castor oil packs on my skin.

Months ago, a friend mentioned that she loved castor oil for hair and eyelashes. I was really skeptical because castor oil has a very thick and sticky consistency that I couldn’t imagine using in hair. I did some research and found out that I had been seriously missing out on a simple and really effective traditional beauty remedy…

Benefits of Castor Oil for Hair and Skin

Castor oil is an age old beauty treatment that has been largely replaced over time by fancier beauty products with more ingredients and a bigger price tag.

Castor oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and is high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids. Its unusually high ricinoleic acid ratio makes it beneficial to skin and hair.

In fact, castor oil has traditionally been used topically for acne and other skin conditions, as well as hair loss, rashes and more. If you want to try it for skincare, I recommend this handcrafted castor oil cleansing blend.

What Does Castor Oil Do for the Hair?

Castor oil can be used on the scalp to help prevent and remedy hair loss and it is effective at this for several reasons. It’s antibacterial and anti fungal properties make it beneficial against follliculitus, dandruff and scalp infections and its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth.

Ricinoleic acid is also said to help balance scalp pH which can also help replenish the scalp’s natural oils and undo some of the damage of harsh chemical hair products (and even damage from no-poo, due to over alkalinity). The antioxidants in castor oil also support the keratin in hair and help make hair stronger, smoother and less frizzy.

“Three Times the Growth!”

How to do a castor oil treatment for natural hair and eyelash growth- simple natural remedyThere are hundreds of testimonials from people who used castor oil to increase their hair growth 3-5x the normal rate. A friend of mine was struggling with postpartum hair loss and even once her hair loss slowed, regrowing her hair was difficult.

She measured her hair growth for a month and it grew almost half an inch. The next month, after using castor oil hair treatments twice a week, her hair had grown almost 2 inches. She tested this again the following month and noticed the same result and that her hair was dramatically thicker.

What Type of Castor Oil for Hair?

There are several options for castor oil hair treatments. I prefer to make my own, but there are some pre-made options (this is a good one that I’ve tried in the past).

To make my own, I mix castor oil with another hair-healthy oil (options listed below) and herbs to help support scalp health. Unrefined and cold pressed hexane free castor oil is preferred.

Castor oil is extremely thick and viscous so I prefer to mix with jojoba or argan oil in a glass dropper bottle for easy application.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

There is a special type of castor oil called Jamaican Black Castor oil that has extremely good reviews. I tried it as well and it seemed to work about the same as regular castor oil on my hair, but it seems that it might provide additional benefit for those with thick or dry hair (my hair is fine/oily).

How to Use Castor Oil Treatments on Hair

Castor oil can be very beneficial for hair growth if used correctly. Small amounts of plain oil can be used for an all-over treatment. Like many things in life, more is not always better, and only a few drops are needed per treatment. The additional oils are completely optional.

How Often

I personally use this castor oil 1-2x per week. It can be used more often, though I didn’t see any increased results with using it daily.

When to Use

I’ve found that this treatment works better on damp but not wet hair. I keep a spray bottle of water in the bathroom and just spritz my roots before applying.

For maximum benefit, I leave the treatment on for several hours or overnight. After applying, I use a shower cap or towel to avoid getting the oil on furniture or a pillow.

How to Remove the Oil

Removing the castor oil can be difficult, especially with natural shampoos. I’ve found that using a small amount and leaving it on overnight will result in most of the oil absorbing into the hair and scalp and make cleanup easier. In fact, I’ve been able to dry shampoo and not wash on a few occasions. When I do shampoo, I use a natural shampoo or mud shampoo as normal.

An alternate way is to crack an egg and whisk until smooth and then massage the egg into the scalp. This helps break down the oil and adds additional nutrients to the hair. It is messy though, so I’d recommend doing this in the shower.

Another less-messy way is to condition your hair before getting in the shower, massaging conditioner into the scalp to help remove the castor oil. Then, shampoo as usual.

Important Notes:

With any new oil, herb or product, test a tiny amount on your inner arm to make sure you don’t have a reaction to castor oil. While reactions are rare, some people will notice irritation from castor oil.

I’ve also used this in combination with my hair growth serum with great results (I use the serum first to dampen hair, then apply the castor oil)

It is also important to support the body nutritionally and hormonally with hair loss, as this can often be a sign of an internal problem.

BONUS TIP: I rub a tiny amount of castor oil on my eyelids at night to help eyelash growth as well. It is also part of my eyelash growth serum recipe.

Castor Oil Hair Serum Recipe

Finding your best combination of oils (or castor oil alone) will require some experimentation and I’d love to hear what you find works best for you. My favorite mix is:

Castor Oil Instructions

  1. Mix ingredients in a dark colored dropper bottle.
  2. Shake to mix.
  3. Use the dropper to apply to the scalp. I part my hair right above the ear on one side, add a few drops of castor oil, part again about 1/2 inch from that part, add more castor oil, and so on until I’ve coated my whole scalp.
  4. Then, I massage for 5 minutes to make sure entire scalp is coated and to help increase circulation.

Note: This will make enough for 5+ uses depending on the length of your hair.

If you’re not a fan of using caster oil, some people have found coconut oil for hair to be a better fit.

My Own Results with Castor Oil…

Last year, when I was under extreme stress for a short period of time (finishing my book *ahem*), I noticed increased hair loss. My Hashimoto’s makes me more susceptible to hair loss when I’m under stress, and I was stressed about my hair loss (vicious cycle).

To combat this, I experimented with natural castor oil treatments both alone and mixed with other oils. I too noticed that my hair seemed stronger and that there was definitely less hair in my brush each day after a few weeks of castor oil treatments. Additionally, I started seeing tiny new hairs all around my hair line.

Random observation:

I split my head open when I was younger, requiring 8 staples in my scalp. Where the scar is, I have a patch of super-curly hair that falls in a perfect ringlet, even though the rest of my hair is wavy/straight. The castor oil seemed to help make this hair patch smoother, though it grew at a faster rate than the rest of my hair.

Now, I’ve made these castor oil hair treatments a regular part of my weekly routine and often do them at night, while wearing my blue blocker glasses and reading or watching a movie with my hubby.

Greatest Challenges of Causes Of Hair Loss In Men & Women

By KellyWil

Root causes of Hair Loss in Men and Women

Most people don’t want to lose their hair. Sure, some people are more comfortable with the process of balding than others but it can be emotionally trying for millions of Americans. To add insult to injury, the causes of hair loss are different for men and women and can affect many people differently.The major causes of hair loss though, stem from circulatory, hormonal, genetic and nutritional factors. Although they all occur in various forms, all of these causes share a common denominator. They all lead to nutrient deprivation of the hair follicle, which in turn, leads to damaged hair and eventual loss.

Causes of Hair Loss in Men

balding-men

Many issues can lead to men’s hair loss, and it’s important to try to pinpoint the cause of your specific hair loss. Severe trauma, illness or even surgery can contribute to hair loss as bodily functions often get disrupted when the body undergoes any intense stress. Diseases or fungal infections can also lead to hair loss, regardless of one’s age; if you suspect your hair loss may be due to any of these problems, you should see your physician.

Reasons of Hair Loss in Women

hair loss treatment

The causes of hair loss in women are slightly different from those in men. Because women produce significantly less testosterone than men, DHT buildup is often not as big a factor as for their male counterparts. However, it is a part of the overall umbrella of causes of hair loss in women and can be seen as a contributing factor.

One of the other causes of hair loss in women is hormonal imbalance. During the periods of puberty,menopause, pregnancy and post-menopause, women’s hormones can change quite dramatically and for extended periods of time. This can lead to significant changes in the hair’s composition and density.

Other causes for hair loss in women include surgery, prescription medications, stress, environmental pollutants, chemicals used in hair styling processes and certain cosmetic procedures. Poor circulation,diseases, and malnourishment are also, less common, causes of hair loss in women. In general, though,losing your hair can be prevented, slowed or reversed altogether with products from Kevis.

The Main Cause fo Hair Loss: DHT

DHT is a potent hormone that triggers hair loss, also known as Androgenetic Alopecia. For those genetically predisposed to hair loss, DHT dwarfs the hair follicle, which causes the scalp hair to regress to a vellusstate which renders the hair virtually nonexistent. The extent and severity of an individual’s hair loss condition can be gauged using a widely accepted measurement known as the Hamilton-Norwood scale.

Kevis Treats the Major Causes of Hair Loss Naturally

Kevis researchers believe that DHT, a post-conversion product of the hormone testosterone, is one of the leading causes of hair loss, particularly for men. When DHT binds itself to receptor cells in your hair follicles, it weighs the hair down and keeps it from growing over time. Our products treat all causes of hair loss by attacking DHT with our own blend of amino and other organic acids. 

By targeting DHT, we can nip hair loss at its source. We use an HUCP compound to gently yet effectively cleanse the scalp. This works organically to simultaneously wash away DHT debris, buildup and chemical residue. When the hair starts to grow again, it can benefit from this new, cleaner follicle path and the abundance of fresh nutrients available to promote healthier, fuller strands.

Most cases of hair loss are caused by genes and the hormone DHT. Medicines and herbs function in the same way to prevent this type of hair loss.

Herbs are more than just blockers, they are also sources of nourishment for the hair and scalp. Nettle root for example is a powerhouse herb filled with vitamins and minerals. Taking herbs for hair loss is a great way to prevent hair loss due to nutrient deficiency.

When it comes to treating hair loss, it is best to select the natural hair loss treatment. Discover the herbal hair loss remedy that’s right for you.
