Hair loss is one frustrating aspect of aging. It can begin when one is relatively young, depending on the genetics. Receding hairlines, balding, hair thinning, you’ve seen it, or maybe you have it. But you don’t have to keep it.
Numerous chemical-filled products claim to boost hair growth, but many of them do not work, and their toxic ingredients can produce further damage to the body.
This unfortunate circumstance repeats itself when it comes to eyebrows and eyelashes. You want them to be thick and luscious, but the pharmaceutical company is either unhelpful or making the situation worse.
As aggravating this position may be, nature has the solution, and it is simpler than you have expected.
Promote Hair Growth with Castor Oil
Castor oil is an ancient cure that is becoming newly rediscovered for its incredible health benefits.
Its properties include:
- A rich source of minerals, proteins, and Vitamin E
- Potent antifungal
- High amounts of omega-9 fatty acids
With all of these attributes comes one of the most effective treatments in natural medicine, especially for hair and skin conditions.
Castor oil has a high amount of omega-9 fatty acids which can nourish the hair and the follicles, and stimulate the growth of your locks, brows, and lashes. It is also rich in triglycerides of unsaturated fats which has the capacity for potently rejuvenating your hair. The ricinoleic acid in the oil prevents and treats fungi, mildew, and infections, which makes a perfect cleaning solution for your hair.
Dr. David William claims that castor oil can also aid lymph flow. “There is no drug that can improve the flow of lymph,” he says, “but the topical application of castor oil can achieve that.”
How to Use Castor Oil For Your Hair
Take several drops of this invigorating oil onto your fingertips and rub them into the scalp. You do not need much for it to enter the pores and follicles to initiate the treatment.
