How Beneficial is Castor Oil for Hair, Eyebrow and Eyelash Growth?

Date :05-Mar-2021

Derived from the beans of the castor tree, castor oil is rich in fatty acids and vitamins that are extremely nourishing to the skin and hair. It has been traditionally used as a natural moisturiser, anti-inflammatory agent, an emollient to cure wounds and fungus, and even as an oral laxative. Most importantly, castor oil’s reputation for hair growth has made it a popular choice to grow thicker, more lustrous hair, eyebrows and eyelashes.

Castor oil helps to improve blood circulation, reduces bacterial and fungal infections, stimulates the lymphatic system and is a powerful emollient. When applied to the hair, it coats the hair strands to thicken and seal the shafts to prevent dehydration. This makes the hair healthier, prevents breakage and hair loss. It also contains ricinoleic acid which reduces effects of hair loss proteins in the body. Castor oil provides a barrier to protect against transepidermal moisture loss and conditions the hair to prevent dry/split ends. Regular use of this oil results in less hair breakage and more luster.

Castor oil is not known to cause allergies and is safe to most skin types. Thus, it is a low-risk home remedy to get you lustrous locks and thicker brows and lashes. Like with any new skincare regimen, start slow and monitor your body’s reaction to the oil. When in doubt, consult us for expert opinion.
