One of the most effective ingredients and frequently used in cosmetics when it comes to hair, is castor oil. It is considered a natural remedy for hair issues in fighting scalp infections and dandruff, and also skin problems like, spots, acne and rashes. When it is applied on the scalp, it starts increasing the blood circulation to the hair follicles, thus ensuring better hair growth. If you properly nourish it, then the thread will be stronger, elastic and more durable. Your hair will grow fast without breaking.
If one has scalp issues it may contribute to hair loss, however, castor oil is able to keep such issues under control. The cause of such condition is bacteria or fungal infection. There are ricinoleic acids in this oil which decrease infections and eliminate the positive environment for their development. The hair becomes smoother, shinier and stronger due to the vitamin E, proteins and omega-6 fatty acids this oil contains. The oil will also treat split ends and is an amazing lubricant preventing the hair to get stuck.
