Benefits of Castor Oil For Hair Growth
4 min read

More studies have yet to be done on the benefits of certified organic Castor Oil (Ricinus communis) virgin, hexane free for hair, but many people swear by its effectiveness on hair growth and healthy locks.

Made by cold pressing beans the Castor Bean seeds, Castor oil is a known industrial ingredient in lubricants and an additive in foods and cosmetics. It’s even used as a laxative in medical settings.

But how does it benefit hair growth? Keep reading to learn more about certified organic, hexane-free Castor Oil and its benefits.

How does it work?

Castor oil is rich in an Omega-9 fatty acid called Ricin oleic acid. Moreover, a study conducted in 2012 found it has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties. Antioxidants prevent free radicals from causing oxidative stress, which damages healthy cells and causes many conditions, including hair loss.

As such, Castor oil for hair is known to do the following things:

  • Improve blood flow to the scalp to promote healthier hair and growth
  • Moisturise dry and irritated scalp
  • Boost hair growth for up to five times the regular rate when applied once a week
  • Reduce dandruff
  • Help achieve thicker hair which may be desired on other parts of the body, like eyelashes and eyebrows.

Choose the right Castor oil.

To get the most potent effects, consider Castor oil, which is manufactured by the cold-pressed process which retains the castor oil’s aroma, flavour and natural antioxidants. Cold-pressed Castor oil is ideal for skin and hair care products as it does not contain nasty residues from hexane, a medium used to expeller press Castor oil (faster & much cheaper method). Due to the lack of heat in cold-pressing, the oil tends to retain more nutrients and antioxidants, providing additional health benefits.

Castor oil for hair is also rich in Omega-6 fatty acids that may reduce inflammation in the hair follicles. As a result, this essential fatty acid may promote healthier hair growth and make hair stronger at the root to prevent breakage.

How to use?

Hair Care: Are you thinking of adding certified organic Castor oil to your hair care routine? Start by rubbing a few drops into your scalp, and massage a few more drops into the midsection and ends of your hair to improve texture and minimize breakage. Consider diluting it with Jojoba or Argan oil to minimize stickiness and a heavy feel simply buy Absolute Essential’s Hair Restorer.
