Castor oil has recently made an appearance in the health and beauty scene as a natural solution for hair and skin problems. Our Organic Castor Oil is cold pressed and hexane free – and derived from organic beans of the castor plant. Castor oil is full of proteins, minerals, omega 6 fatty acids, Vitamin E, and many other vitamins that provide nutrition for your hair follicles. This is one of our favorites because it’s one of the most “ready-to-use” products planet earth has provided, helping to transform the condition of your hair, lashes and complexion.
Castor Oil for Hair Care:
Castor oil is well known as an effective tool in helping to prevent, and remedy hair loss. Packed with antibacterial and anti fungal properties, castor oil naturally combats the root causes of hair loss – follliculitus, dandruff and scalp infections. Further, natural, organic castor oil is packed with Ricinoleic acid which helps to increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth. Ricinoleic acid is also said to help balance scalp pH, which is critical in replenishing the scalp’s natural oils and undoing damage from harsh chemical hair products (and even damage from no-poo, due to over alkalinity).
A rare find, Castor Oil can be used for a wide variety of health and beauty needs. Not only does it help us fight dry skin and hair during those long winter months, but it adds moisture and actually makes hair stronger. Additionally, it is used on sore muscles and joints for athletes and those suffering from joint disorders. A natural laxative, many swear by it for constipation troubles as it brings quick relief. You can skip the trip to the dermatologist, as many use Castor Oil for the removal of skin tags and moles, as well as lightening acne scars and stretch marks.
Applying Castor Oil to Hair and Scalp:
Application: Put 1 to 2 tablespoons of castor oil in your palm and work it through your hair from the roots to the tips, massaging well. Castor oil has a thicker density, which can make it difficult to wash it out. Start with a small amount, and add more as you go if necessary. Leave the oil in for a minimum of 15-20 minutes.
Removal: Due to its dense consistency, it can be difficult to wash off castor oil and you may need to shampoo multiple times to remove the oil. To reduce the amount of washing required, condition your hair with a commercial conditioner 30 minutes before you take a shower. The oil should come off easily.
Continued Care: After washing and rinsing, towel dry it and avoid using any heat styling tools immediatley after drying.
Castor Oil for Eyelash Growth and Health:
As opposed to the standard, chemical laden eyelash growth products offered at most makeup counters, castor oil is a natural ingredient, that is easily the most effective home remedy for naturally gorgeous lashes.
Packed with nutrients that are essential to healthy lashes, castor oil is thick proteins, minerals, fatty acids (such as oleic, linoleic, stearic, and palmitic ricinoleic acids) in addition to its natural antifungal and antibacterial properties.
Castor oil is particularly thick with vitamin E, which works as an antioxidant and helps to repair and build tissue. It also repairs the damage to your hair follicles, and healthy follicles encourage hair growth.
Clean: Start by cleaning your face and eyes with water. Carefully remove any traces of makeup, especially around the eyes.
Dip: Dip an eyeliner brush into your castor oil, and then carefully apply to the eyelashes. Make sure to use a natural *cold pressed* castor oil that is free from hexane and other additives.
Sleep: It is typically best to apply castor oil to the lashes before bedtime, so that the oil has plenty of time to soak in and be absorbed by the lashes. The following morning, use your favorite (preferably natural!) makeup remover to remove the oil from your lashes.
