Castor oil is a vegetable oil and is used in cosmetics and manufacturing industries to make paint, lubricants, dyes, automotive fluids, inks, pharmaceutical medicines, perfumes, polishes, waxes, and hair treatment products. Since it’s natural, it’s safe for internal consumption in the human body. It’s also perfectly safe for external application on hair, skin, and nails.
Naturally such an oil that has lubricating and waxing properties can also benefit the hair. Castor oil provides many benefits, and can be used for a variety of bad hair conditions.
Castor oil is suitable for moisturizing hair, promoting hair growth, and preventing hair loss. This product is suitable for both men and women to use. Even women can suffer from alopecia—hair loss—that is caused from a hormonal imbalance. As both sexes get older, they can experience a greater hair loss and the thinning of hair, which can be reduced by the application of castor oil to the hair.
