Do you know the benefits of castor oil for natural hair and hair growth in general? Today, many people are using castor oil to help seal moisture and to prevent dry scalp on their natural tresses, and it works for any hair texture.
Here is a list of benefits for using castor oil as a hair care solution:
• Promotes hair growth
• Moisturizes hair and scalp
• Helps reduce damaged split ends
• Helps to tame frizz
• Creates full healthy hair by thickening
The reason castor oil helps in these areas is because of its fatty acids:
The germicidal, insecticidal and fungicidal properties of Ricin and Ricinoleic acid present in castor oil protect the scalp and hair from microbial and fungal infections, the two prime causes for hair loss. In addition, the fatty acids in it nourish hair and prevent the scalp from drying by retaining moisture.
