Castor oil is a known hair care ingredient. It soothes irritation and creates a healthier scalp—an ideal environment for hair to grow. But does it really make your hair grow faster? Let’s dive in and find out.
What Is Castor Oil?
Castor oil is extracted from the seeds of the Ricinus communis plant. It is thick, sticky, and carries a distinctive scent. But what makes it truly stand out is its rich content of ricinoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that is the driving force behind many of its health and beauty benefits.
This oil also contains omega-6 fatty acids—a type of essential fatty acid that may promote hair growth and reduce inflammation in the hair follicle. This means that castor oil not only helps with hair growth, but it also soothes the scalp, potentially reducing dandruff and other scalp conditions.
Castor Oil Benefits
Moisturizes dry hair: Castor oil is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids which makes it a natural hair moisturizer. It easily seeps into your hair, resulting in a smoother and softer feel.
Soothes irritated scalp: This oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, making it excellent for managing irritated and dry scalp.
Prevents moisture loss: Using castor oil on your scalp helps protect your hair follicles from external factors leading to breakage and damage. It is a humectant and a hydrator, so it maintains your hair's moisture levels.
Adds shine to hair: Because of its humectant properties, castor oil adds a glossy shine to your hair, especially when applied to your mid-lengths and ends.
