How to Quickly Regrow and Thicken Hair, Eyebrows and Eyelashes
It Can Regrow and Thicken Hair, Eyebrows and Eyelashes
The benefits of this oil often are overlooked because it has extremely sticky and thick consistency. First I stumbled on castor oil as a natural remedy for regrowing thin eyebrows. Back in the nineties I had over-plucked my brows when it was the hip thing to actually have pencil thin brows. They never did quite recover. For me it became simply necessary to pencil in the “bald” spots. I missed the natural look of real hair where these spots were missing.
Then, I read about castor oil as a super great remedy for thinning hair and brows and. I thought I’d try it. Then, I bought an organic and hexane free, cold pressed castor oil. I immediately started applying it every night after washing my face, to my eyebrows. After three months, I saw that my brows were noticeably thicker. They also seemed to be growing in darker as well).
I’m not the only “case” that this remedy gave positive effects. So, the question is :
Why would we use castor oil for hair regrow?
It is high in ricinoleic acid; a very effective natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent. This can help keep any bacteria or fungus from inhibiting hair growth. Since the oil is very thick, it may actually help to prevent hair loss. How? Simply by helping to coat the hair and protect it from falling out. Castor oil has also high level of omega 9 fatty acids. They are very nourishing for the hair and the follicle, as well as the surrounding skin.
It also has a high gloss, so it lends a shine and glossiness to the hair. It’s enough only to add a tiny bit to the ends of your hair instead of putting it up near the scalp if you’re just looking for a natural hair smoother.
Put about two drops on your hands and gently rub, then smooth through the ends. If you use too much, there is a “thin” and invisible line between heavy greasiness and subtle shine. So go very light until you figure out the “correct” amount that works right for your hair type.
If you’re looking to regrow or thicken hair on your head, you can use the amazing castor oil as a scalp treatment.
However, it can be little problematic to get on the scalp without thinning it out with a lighter oil. You can add some apricot kernel oil, melted coconut oil, or another lighter oil to help get it spreadable enough.
If you’re simply looking to help thicken hair that is thinning at the edges of your hairline, you can use pure castor oil, with a light hand of course. Another use is to apply the oil to eyelashes to help strengthen and thicken them, as well as to help prevent shedding and thinning.
Castor Oil For Smooth, Shiny Lips and Scar Tissue Reduction
Many attest to the wonders castor oil offers for keloid types of scars and other scars that involve a lot of hardened scar tissue. This is presumably due to its ability for deep penetration through multiple skin layers.
Because castor oil softens the skin so much, the thought is that this softening helps to break down deep scar tissue so it may be smoothed out. In addition, castor oil has shown promise as a white blood cell stimulating agent. Studies have also shown that castor bean oil helps reduce the inflammatory response in subcutaneous tissue. This may be why it seems to speed wound healing, and may also contribute to its ability to reduce scarring more quickly.
Castor oil is also excellent for the lips. Our lips need constant protection against the elements. Even though our lips recover and regenerate quickly, they also begin to peel and dry out when they are dehydrated.
Castor oil with its fatty acids, not only smooths the lips, but it helps protect them due to its naturally immovable and thick nature. It also imparts a natural shine to the lips, which makes it ideal for improving the health and the appearance of the lips.
