I just recently started to use Castor Oil in my moisturizing regimen. I love the thickness. The thicker, the better for my hair to retain moisture.
In my recent post, I listed Castor Oil as one of my ingredients. I also use it to seal in the Leave-in. Castor Oil is usually described as a heavy and greasy oil, but my hair drinks it up.
- has germicidal, insecticide and fungicidal properties, which protect the scalp and hair from microbial and fungal infections. Microbial and Fungal Infections are the two pimary causes for hair loss.
- Rich in Omega-9 Fatty Acids, which help hair and scalp to be moisturized, and preventing both from getting dry.
- Aids in thickening hair, if applied regularly
Some other benefits
Due to its thickening property, it can be used to aid the growth of eyebrows and lashes.
